Consternation – 12 x 12 Oils on Canvas by Jennie Rosenbaum
I have been running from pillar to post yet again, getting applications ready, sending off purchases and hunting the wild gallery. things have gotten so hectic that my wonderful husband has stepped in to give me a hand with all my unanswered emails, helping with my hunt and most importantly poking the snarling artist back into her cage (studio).
you see, the actual business of being an artist frequently takes up more time than the creative aspect. unfortunately we also have a built in self destruct sequence if we don’t get to create on a regular basis. these two things are often at odds with each other. so there comes a period of implosion as the outside business matters act on the lack of studio time to create a vacuum of uselessness. and a slump.
Liam is helping me by taking away all the things that I should do (but am stressed out by thus leading to procrastination and more stress) and making me do the single most important thing for the betterment of my career – namely, creating. thanks hon!
this long ramble is purely to explain why I’ve been hiding and why, hopefully, things will be back to normal soonish. we are instituting a schedule, and all sorts of things to make me work better, faster, stronger… we have the technology.
