|Something to Crow About|
Rather than a resolution this year, I made the decision to embrace a “Word” that I want to define my 2019. I wanted to choose just one word but a word that has significance when considered. I have decided that my word for the year of 2019 is “Focus”. Focus on my art business, focus on my health, focus on relationships and my walk with the Lord. Focus is something I often find lacking in my life now that I am retired from the traditional workforce. I had a stressful, demanding job for years and when you have a career and face constant deadlines you must focus on the tasks. I also kept notes and to do lists be it how sloppy they appeared they helped keep me focused. Now that I am retired, I find myself sometimes struggling with creating the urgency to spend time in my studio. There is no longer board meetings, inspections, audits, payroll or a million other things needing my attention, so staying FOCUSED at this time in my life has a new challenge to it.
There is also a real balance that I must maintain because I never want my art to become boring or a drudgery. I don't want to loose the joy in creating but I must stay creating new art and plenty of it if I want to see growth in my bottom line.

In closing, I just thought I would share a last look at each of the original paintings that I said farewell to in this month.
