Sunday Morning

As fortunate as I am to have this gorgeous place to sit and plan new works and my weekly chores, it comes at a hefty price.

I have extended to the far limits of my financial abilities, and have quite a large amount of stress in my life as a result. Not enough customers in the door means not enough cash flowing through the accounts. Failure is a huge fear. Breathing is difficult at times- my own mental health has certainly seen better times.

But inspiration is found in trials. My latest artistic thoughts are a follow up to SURFACING, exploring what lays under the surface of the ocean. I think I wear my heart on my sleeve for all to see most of the time, but I wonder what others are keeping hidden under their made up faces and outward appearances. We all have secrets, but how many of us are afraid to admit to others of our social anxieties and fears? What do we have hiding UNDERNEATH?

  1. So wonderfully insightful but no you don’t wear your heart on your sleeve. You are honest and don’t bother with a facade. Keep up the good work change always brings tension and stress and failure is only when we don’t attempt to fulfill a dream. We are with you all the way girl! Hugh

  2. your honesty is striking. Thank you for your risking, we all are better for it. We get to enjoy your creativity and also are compelled to risk more than we might have allowed ourselves to. Press on, dear woman. I love you.

  3. I hope things have picked up for you since you wrote this, Janet, with Valentines Day and all. I hate to think of you worrying about the financial side of things, after all your planning, hard work, and immense talent. Paul and I are keeping good thoughts that a successful summer season and beyond will make up for it!
