The Artist Life

Moment of Wonder
My son, age 3 

Now that I have been told I am living The Artist Life
I am trying to figure out what that means.

What exactly is the artist life?
There seems so much to juggle with being a mother and a professional artist.
Is this the artist life?
I am not sure. But this is my life and I have decided that I need to journal it better than I have been.
Up until now I have shown mostly my finished pieces and my achievements.
But that is only part of the story. 
There has been so much heartache for several years that it makes the achievements that much sweeter.
I do want to look back and remember how sweet they are and I want others (especially my children) to realize that blessings come in so many different ways.
Being a mother and an artist has its rewards.

So from now on I want to speak of the heartaches and the struggles of balancing motherhood and a career in the arts along with the joys and the triumphs (and perhaps a bit of the mundane). 
I hope that you will continue with me on this journey.

I hope you find them enjoyable! I think it will end up being more for me than anyone else:)
