Just Checking In

Hi. It has been awhile now since I posted so I thought I would just check in. After I completed the Old Millboro Post Office / General Store I was kind of drained. It was one of the most difficult works I have completed to date and I guess I have been recharging my batteries.

I did begin a new work on Sunday. Work is progressing slowly and I believe it will be difficult as well. Not sure if it will be something I will want to post or not. We will have to see how it comes along.

I have had some minor health issues and have not felt myself lately but I am working on those things. Stress from work is pretty bad so that is not helping either. However, this is Memorial Day weekend and I plan to do something fun with my family. Hope all of you can do something for the holiday weekend as well.

The juried art show is coming up and I have the works I want to enter framed but have to wire them for hanging. My husband paints from time to time and I am trying to get him to enter with me. Not sure if he will or not.

I caught up on my blog reading this morning. Everyone has some wonderful work to show so please check out the blogs I follow.

Well, that is the update. Hope to post some art soon! Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend as well!

I go through much the same thing when I finish a challenging piece. I need to recharge a bit. One thing that I've found that helps is to have another piece ready to go and waiting in the wings so that as soon as I'm done with the first one, I start the second one.

You might try to see if it helps you past that lull.

Hi Lori!

I hope that you have a restful and relaxing weekend. I understand about the drained feeling... I'm trying working on two pieces of art... when I feel like I need to step away from one for a while I can spend some time on the other and the different subject matter helps to re-energize me.

I understand that feeling also. It seems we go full-tilt til we finish then need to just take a deep breath and relax.

Hope you and your husband both enter the upcoming show and that both of you are accepted!

Keep us posted and have a great and restful long weekend!

Have a wonderful and relaxing holiday weekend, Lori

I too, know just what you mean, about taking some time off after finishing a piece.

I hope that you feel better and hopefully, soon I'll have a new drawing to post, as well.
