Well, I survived it. My first solo art show at Mitchell’s Coffee House in downtown Lakeland. Michelle Harvey, the owner invited me to show my work at the end 2010 after my decision to close Fitz Gallery. I thought why not, schedule me for January 2012 I should be ready by then.
Little did I realize the procrastination gremlin would rear its ugly little head and throw a wrench into my very well designed perfect plan? HA! HA! HA! Fortunately for me I have always been good under a certain amount of pressure. In the final weeks of preparation as I was trying to finish all the pieces I had half started all over the place it was actually quite fun. My creative juices were flowing and everything else seemed to disappear as the hours just flew by.
I’ve forgotten what it feels like to be in that peaceful wonderful state. The place I share with my creative spirit, the one who lets me be exactly who I am without question, doubt or fear. I’m so grateful that I have been given a second chance to be in this place again. My hope is I will never bury my creative spirit again in the craziness of everyday life and that I will let her soar whenever she feels the need.
I want to again thank Michelle Harvey of Mitchell’s for believing in me and all my friends and family for coming out and supporting me on opening night.
In closing I would like to dedicate this first post to my best friend and husband Warren and our son Wyatt. Warren you are the love of my life and the true wind beneath my wings. I’m truly blessed by all your love, encouragement and support. And to our son Wyatt, who is without a doubt the greatest creation we will ever be a part of. I love you both with every fiber of my being.
Thanks for visiting my blog and may you embrace the creative spirit within and enjoy the journey especially designed for your life.
Please visit again, thanks.
