a balance between my love of the color pink and a strong desire for my work not to be dismissed as cute. between time spent teaching francie to blow bubbles and time spent answering emails. between feeling like skipping out on art shows is a missed opportunity or like it's the best business decision i can make.
all in all the summer is just barely here and already feeling like it's going too fast. i'm painting as much as i can (which is a good thing, don't mean that to sound like work, i really wish i didn't require sleep so i could just paint while the family sleeps, if i had a wish that would be it, well maybe world peace or something altruistic but okay if i had a wish just for me it would be that i didn't have to sleep) and doing my best to stay caught up in the little world of my "online presence" but there just isn't enough time and i've decided to drastically trim back on my travel schedule, so i won't be making it to any of the out of oregon shows for the rest of this year, we'll see about next year, i just don't know. and as for the balance between pink and cute and serious and dark while i'm just going to keep trying my hardest to find that strange place in between.
and as for the title on this piece - here's a great place to finally add a little disclaimer i keep meaning to write: for all of you that read this blog in a reader you much of the time don't see the final result. i have a tendency to hit publish then reread and go back and change little things but at least with google reader that i use you just see that first draft so if you see me mispelling things you can always just give me the benefit of the doubt and assume i fixed it or you can check the actual blog to see if i finally got it right and this piece will probably have a title by morning.
