Back to work I go...
My late-winter mini-vacation is over. I am back to work. I so needed the break. A break from all the stresses of work--including winter driving to/from work, listening to my clients and helping them resolve their issues (I'm a social worker by day), and just the usual dramas of the workplace.
I spent oodles of time in the studio last week. It was my week to pretend for just a bit that I was a full-time artist. I got so much accomplished and had some new ideas. The wonderful thing about going to the studio every day is that it's so much easier to establish a flow in your work.
Plus my studio is a wonderful place to be in the dead of winter. Thanks to the sunlight streaming through the windows and the generous amount of heat pumped into the place, it is always a little tropical there. I like that. Alot.
So the week off accomplished its goal--I'm feeling refreshed. There's no doubt that I'll be missing my time at the studio, but soon the days will be longer (sunlight-wise) and I'll be spending some evenings in the studio after work.
Spring is almost here, right?
