La Vida Artistica: The Artist's Life. My life. This week.
Dear Diary: the life of an artist is not easy. Lot's of ups and downs this week. A workshop that I very much wanted to teach, did not fill. Yet, I was asked to give a talk about encaustics at a local art guild meeting. What fun! Today, I get to work on ART all afternoon. Fantastic! Yesterday, I spent half the day updating my resume just in case that "perfect" part-time gig suddenly appears or drops into my lap. After 52 years on this earth, with a Bachelors degree in fine art, a successful 15+ years in the graphic design field, raising a family of two fabulous and creative children, and finding my way into one of the most desireable paths a person could choose (making and teaching art): I somehow feel inadequate. Updating resumes and applying for jobs can do that to a person.
But, my heart remains full, and sometimes, hopeful. That I am doing the right "thing", going against ALL logic, and pursuing this crazy career. That's all for now...
I would LOVE to hear about some of your "trials and triumphs" under "Comments"!
