Last week was thick with things to do: two openings - oneat Todmorden Mills in Toronto, one in Niagara Falls (read
about it in the latest posts), the first week teaching a fast track
course, meetings and Mother's Day. Sometimes in the
midst of a whole lot going on we need to stop and take
a deep breath. And for painters it's important to play.
The big ideas come out of small steps. Amazing new
beginnings happen every day.
Here in the month of Fresh Starts I have been treated to
being one of the first artists to show in a brand new, gorgeous
gallery space as part of Catching The Moments. Pretty Fresh.
Today I painted this painting in honour of the moon. Why?
Because the moon rules the tides, and the tides rule our holiday
near the ocean, in Nova Scotia in August. We will
plan our getaway around the time when the tides are
low during the day, so that we can walk for hours on the
beach. What a delicious thought! Hold onto your free
time, for sure it feels like every minute counts.
Have a taking some time to breathe day.
