Sit Still and Think a Minute

That's not as easy as it sounds.

Even though my husband and I are emptynesters and the house is child-free most days, I can still get wrapped up in noise, chores and activities that rob me of my "think tank" time.

I have found that simply turning off the television and radio is very helpful. Music may be soothing for some but for me, silence is golden.

My artistic dilemmas are often solved when I take the time to think them through. As much as I want to rush and quickly achieve results, it doesn't seem to work that way.

So, as I sit still and think a minute I can take a breath, direct my focus and in time, accomplish the task at hand - my newest masterpiece.

Here's my newest painting. I've named her "Chelsea."
