i have picked up a little part time job helping people purge their homes...i love doing it but i have found there is a side effect. my clients are emotionally attached to their 'stuff' and it is very hard for them to sort through the material belongings that they have collected...both physically and emotionally...the side effect is that i am coming home scattered! i am having trouble getting centered in the rest of my day...i never even considered how i would react to their attachments! it is so interesting...
and as if that is not enough...i am totally doubting my own skills as a teacher! as you know i am guiding some teens through mixed media...i had one 'home schooling' mom tell me that she wanted her daughter to learn 'fine art' skills in the class...fine art skills? i am a 'winging it' kind of girl...i do not have fine art skills....that is what kept me as a shadow artist for most of my life...NO fine art skills....NO artist!
so here is the next project that i am guiding them through...this is take 'one'...i will create take 'two' tonight...there are some changes that i want to make..but over all...i am pretty darned happy with this piece...fine art or not!
I cannot go to school...I am not done flying!
