This paintong is headed to BJ to live in Chicago! Actually, I got so excited packaging it, I wrapped it as a gift at the end! Thank You! I am so happy! 

Oh and that reminds me, if anyone else wants to buy a painting, let me know and you get extra art included as a bonus! Yeah! Fun fun fun!

I feel like Max in his carseat on a a road trip. I'm stuck. I need to finish this and START MY ART SCHOOL!!! and making things! AHHHHHHHH1
I am stuck! OK. So, what I need to do to finish. Get all the crap in there to function. MOVE IN! What is the hold up? Look, it's beautiful, it's ready for me! It's patiently waiting for love and creation. SO MOVE IN! JUST MOVE IN! HOW HARD CAN IT BE????
I don't know what it is, like a giant wierd BLOCK! But really, that is it. I'm in there. All this hesitation and cowardice is over. The path is laid. I'm in. Talk to you later. Guys, I'm on it.

notice path above. yep, I hauled a ton of rock for that! Yep, I'm strong.

Oh and this floor? Yep it's painted. Not perfect but done. enough. and I like how it looks.

Oh and these measurements. They are what I want to put in there.Actually, 'll write them down now so when I shop I know the sizes. Thanks blog for helping me see my direction.

the idea. 

OK, now stop all this flaking faking and get it going on. 
begin again.

I am trying to clean the garage so that I can finish painting the floor and have a studio and I can't get there. I am so tired I might have slept two hours last night with tired sick boy saying every hour 'My ear hurts mommie.' Knowing that going to the ER on Halloween night is not in anyone's best interest I waited for an Urgent-Care morning. AND then put both boys to bed with "UP" and am now realizing my eyes are burning.  I am tired and I want to sit down and cry.

Coming Soon, a completed drawing book! and now then the beginning of something NEW!
I think the amazing thing about finishing a sketchbook is that I have not done this in YEARS! I have not completed much of anything, or so it feels. Except to completely run out of money. Which is sad. But a part of my world right now. However. Things are changing! Do you feel it? I'm ready! And the last picture from the sketchbook is of sweet Max in the hammock. Now I just finish coloring that and really truly! I finished a sketchbook! Well, gel pen therapy.
sucking the sweet nectar out of LIFE!!!!

Wonderful world of color. Practicing ways to say things.
Moving forward.
So, I was speaking with a new friend and she was pointing out the way that you need to have the confidence to do these things and why don't we have them. And, I think the answer comes down to, how come we don't know how to tap into them. So, we move slowly into these different spaces and figure things out as we go. So, we do have them, they are longer more sustainable types of confidence. Really I don't think so, but it was worth a shot. 
I know when I try to channel confidence I get a shock of excitement that makes me think, SHS 150! That's Super Human Strength. My friend Dave Ford and I made that up back in the late 90's but it stuck with me all this time. Right now I need some high vamped up SHS to create this mini summer camp art school, I have my heart set on. I think it is possible, I just need to feel confident in it.
In the mean time, let's finish the project at hand. Focus, do the recycled cd project and move forward.
It is possible and it needs some attention, love and devotion.
Here we go!
Vivir sin miedo.
