Entry #98 Lassie come home

Okay, it's Wed. Oct 30th and I'm sitting in my new space - a large open floor plan live/work that allows me to roll out of bed and simply paint at anytime I chose. For the past year or so, I've had to travel up to 3 hours to reach my studio to paint but nowit's only a matter of willing mysewlf to walk across the floor and get to work. It's a little mind boggling to think I don't have to invest myself int he struggle to get here anymore but after waiting so long, my head hasn't joined my body in being here  yet. Until this morning that is.

This morning I made a decision to get my head and mind to join my body and supplies here and to get my whole being invested in producing work again. This may be a decision to fake it till I make it or maybe it's a matter of me recognizing where I am, how hard I've had to work to get myself here, how far I've come, how far I could go and just pushing myself to move away from the people, places and things that have been weighing me down and out this year. Maybe it's a matter of letting myself come and be home.

..and this is what I get to come home to.......

So, starting today, I will take on everyday with dogged determination.
It's time to set my chin, square my shoulders, tilt my head down, lift my eyes up 
and lock my sight on the future. 
It's time I allow myself to focus on producing work again. 

It is my time succeed.


  1. Hey, Chicken, looks like a beautiful, inspiring space. Be prolific! xo Valerie

  2. O...M....G.... ◉_◉ I think I'm drooling!! THAT PLACE IS BEAUTIFUL! If not for my young (7 y/o) son and my huge canine babies... I would go on a non-stop hunt for a space JUST like this! Right now, my studio is an old, used 10x10 storage shed that I've redone enough to work in there. I'm grateful and I love my own private studio -- that's 10 feet from my house -- but every artist dreams of their "perfect" studio. :)

  3. Yeh, I live and paint in an old mill - something I've dreamt of since I was kid. It really is kind of incredible.
