Happy Holiday




Happy Fourth of July! I've had to take a few days off from painting to catch up around my place. I have had gardens for over forty years of my life and I'll tell you they take a lot of work. I'm down from a high of 32 tomato plants to four this year. Last month I took two little vacations and between that and the cool rainy weather the weeds are everywhere. And I can't say "no, I have to paint". I think this is the hardest thing for women artists. How to juggle their passion for art and their need to satisfy the expectations of others. I know and admire a few women (and men) who can do this. I have never been one of them. I have two more days of weeding, mulching, redoing and cleaning up. THEN it's back to painting.
