So much to do!
I am a bit overwhelmed these days with how much my art has grown. I am working on 3 custom cigar boxes (see photo), a bigger piece for an art show at The Ink People in April, as well as adding pieces to my shop on a, hopefully, daily basis. Don't get me wrong, I am excited! To know that my work is appreciated thrills me and makes me blush. It also keeps me going on those days when I don't want to work. But I am also struggling to keep up with all that needs to be done. I should also mention that I work full-time as mental health case manager and I go to school part-time. I don't know how artists that are also parents do it! I am struggling just to keep my head above water as it is. Oh! But I love it! Isn't this what we, as artists, live for? To have our lives consumed by our passion? So I struggle, yet I am thrilled and inspired by it. Such a contradiction!
