Time to get centered again.
I bought a new case of canvases and started without knowing where to begin. I generally don't understand artists that revisit the same content, but I was compelled to revisit "You Are Here" on canvas and in a different medium.
In my old life it was so important to understand my audience and appeal to it. Now it is sometimes difficult to close my ears to the chatter of what success might mean and what beautiful is. I believe my best work comes from responding to what is happening instead of hoping to please someone else. In that way, my only audience is me. I better know where I am.
Right now I'm an abstraction of what I thought I would be. I am learning to enjoy the journey and the freedom that comes from charting my own the course. The little rebellions of my 40s are pleasing to me for reasons only I need to understand.
Do something today that makes you smile and try not to explain it.
Now I'm off to pick up paper towels at Kmart wearing Balenciaga perfume and it makes me feel like someone else.
