A little death, a little love

Today I visited my blog page for the first time in 6 months…to the day. It’s like a little time capsule at this point, and my life is vastly changed, and still changing.

I’ve been working in an office as a marketing associate, with my very own cubicle. It’s actually been a nice change of pace, like putting on a new persona and acting in a play. I get a steady paycheck and it’s the most wonderful thing ever. I could probably do this for the rest of my life in some capacity, build a career; I’m good at it.

I haven’t picked up a paint brush, hardly even made a sketch the past six months. While it may seem like a sad thing, it isn’t. My art went through a little death and I’m healing. There is still more healing to do, still financials to sort out. It will take more time, but I always return to my brushes and oils eventually.

In honor of this healing process, I’m clearing out the studio; getting rid of all the old, to make room for the new. I’ll be auctioning and selling all my older series of paintings and any canvas prints on Facebook over the next few months. I want them in the hands of the wonderful people who supported me through all of this.

So on to new and better and brighter things!

Hello there Marni,

I'm happy that you're content with your life's changes & wish you the very best in all your endeavours.It's difficult -I can relate! A heavy heart laden with dull pressures is not a recipe for enjoying ones life as an artist -unless THAT is what you wish to paint!
Your art is within you regardless.

Warmest Wishes,
Rainey

Thanks for the comments! We all go through changes. Without it, there is no growth.
Still no painting in 8 months or so, but I'm content with that, especially after the three years I spent bowing to the easel on a daily basis :)

It will all come back, in a different, better way. I'm hopeful of that.

In any case, it touches me that after all this time, a few of you took the time to read and comment. As artists and humans, we all share similar struggles.

All the best, and thank you
