Sigh. I had been doing so well with updates for a while, too.
I hope you’re all well. I am, even though I’m not totally feeling like it right now. I feel like I’ve just been barely keeping my head above water when it comes to personal responsibilities and self-care. I feel like the return to a regular schedule on Monday will help, but holding on until then has been hard.
But I have updates; I’ve been working on a series of watercolor that I hope to show you all soon, and have two series of acrylic paintings that I’m aching to start on, but know I’m not in the right frame of mind to do so just yet (I’ll either be hypercritical or just rush through them for the sake of having completed something, neither of which are things I want to do). I’ve also got some general life updates and some projects I’m excited about unrelated to painting.
For those of you with kids or who work with kids (or both, like myself), I hope the transition back to school has been smooth. Bear starts K1 on September 3rd, and I’m already having anxiety dreams about it (I say “already.” I am genuinely shocked I haven’t been having recurring nightmares since the day we got him registered, honestly).
Life is good, though it’s hard to see it through the fog in my brain right now. Hopefully that’ll clear soon. I’m looking forward to returning with something to show you all, with something I’m proud of.
