11 x 14 on canvas board, paper and acrylic paint

This was going to be my painting for Illustration Friday last week, but I just now finished it. I would love to be sitting in a place like she is, right  now.

I am feeling the need to keep myself grounded these days. With all the possibility of the new year in front of me, I feel a bit overwhelmed with not getting it all done. I feel like sometimes, my creative energy is too fast and furious.  I feel ideas come to me and they start building up, and up until I feel like I might explode and I feel this incredible urgency to do something with ALL of them. Other times, I feel like there are no ideas at all.

I should let them flow through me instead, picking only things that feel really good and right. Maybe, it wouldn’t seem so up and down.  I have to constantly remind myself to take deep breathes and just do what I love.  I will still thrive, even if I don’t get everything done.

    Beautiful painting…I know what you are saying: With all these big new year plans and months spreading before us, it’s easy to put pressure on ourselves to have it all done YESTERDAY! I hope you are able to slow down and allow you ideas to come forward and manifest in their own time.

    Nice painting. Living life is an art in itself. We need to harness our energy and ideas while retaining balance and avoiding burn-0ut. Good luck in the new year.
