Tunnel Vision

I have an art condition called Tunnel Vision:
a drastically narrowed field of vision, as in looking through a tube.
It has been creeping up on me over the past m
onth and now I have a full blown case....It is treatable prescription drugs are not necessary but what is required are longer hours in my studio,more hot baths,many movies,lots of cuddles with sir shadow, chats on the phone with family and friends,long walks and bike rides.

Sunday April 25 th 2010 was the Young At Art Reception here at the gallery...This month hanging in the gallery has been the creativity of School district 78 primary-senior students,their creative expression fills the walls.What has been delightful is seeing the kids come in full of enthusiasm and pride as they see their art on the wall,that is something that I don't tire of is the being in the present moment attitude that children have..Ok speaking of children I am going to be a Nana this year yep my daughter Taylor and her husband Tj(newlyweds) are bringing a new generation forth...

I also feel I am birthing more in the sense though of my artwork...and I am getting closer to the harder labor of pushing my own creative expression in the world for u all to see..Over the last little while artist acquaintances/friends have strolled through my studio the feedback I have received has been food for thought that I have either pondered or acted upon... being so close to my art its very easy to lose sight of the vision/outcome for a piece. The perspective of others has assisted me in taking a particular piece to the finish line..I appreciate all of the insights..Thanx so much for that!!!!

I am living/breathing/talking/acting out another dream that I also spoke about...experiencing my daily life as artist in residence is way beyond what I dreamed in fact its even better..when I am feeling out of sorts/stressed about how I am going to bring all of this together,little things pop up that solidifies that for today this is where I am in the moment doing,being,seeing,feeling my way about in my artists way and tomorrow will come without me wanting or needing to know what's next.

I am off to the BC Arts Conference at the end of the week so that will be fun to connect with like minded on a bigger scale.So ya see this writers creative journey rocks and rolls..Thanx for tuning in..
