Too Much Time Away

I guess you could call me a "round robin" kind of artist.

I call myself that because I find that I cannot spend all my time, day in and day out on one type of project. Instead, I find wonderful satisfaction in spending a week, two weeks, maybe a month working on watercolor painting. And then after a time, something switches over in my brain and tells me that I need to work on some crafty art project.

That's what happened last December when I was creating doll furniture as a Christmas present for one of my granddaughters. Something took off in my brain and I began this whirlwind of doll furniture making! I was having so much fun, before you know it, I was opening a shop on Etsy to see if anyone else liked it as much as my granddaughters. Six rooms of doll furniture later, here I am.

And like so many times before, I'm starting to get that feeling and the messages in my head are telling me, "...too much time away - it's time for some more watercolor..."

So, all I can say is, "Watercolors, here I come again..."
