Blah Blah Blog

This is Planting Seeds III. It is being donated for a silent auction at our local Quaker Friends school. I will miss this one -- it is my favorite color combination. Hopefully it's sale will cover the school's expenses for the next five years.

Right now I'm in between projects again. Number 11 in the New Orleans series is ready to be sewn, but I am not ready to sew it. Number 12 is barely underway. It is only underway because I feel 12 is better than 11 for a series. I think I should just get over that and clean up the mess from this series. I'm getting that compressed, cluttered feeling again. A spring cleaning is due.

Unfortunately, the garden is requiring a spring cleaning too. That will take up a great deal of time and energy, but maybe that is what I need right now.

And this blogging thing. I think it is wearing me down. I kind of feel like I am running into a wall over and over again. I have debated having two blogs; one where I say what ever I feel and one where I can try to be a professional artist. I don't know if two blogs would wear me down even more, or perhaps it would free me up to be able to say everything that I want. The artists wouldn't get offended by my rants or off-hand comments and the folks that enjoy the rants and off-hand comments wouldn't be bored with "artistic detail". Maybe it couldn't hurt to have two. If they don't work, I could just shut down the whole mess and get on with life.

Anyway, time to get on with my pacing and blog surfing for the day.

I love that hand with the seeds pouring down, nice piece.

I can relate to your blogging woes. There is a direct (and obvious) correlation, more time blogging = less art time.I've been feeling the desire to wean myself away from the computer and engage in the 'real world' more. Good for you if you can sustain 2 blogs. I can't, I have bloggers guilt over neglecting both of them.

I'm not sure if people just want to read pure art blogs anyway, I think a little ranting makes it more interesting.

Planting Seeds III pulls me in. The blues are so vibrant, yet soothing. And that hand! As a bodyworker, I particularly resonate with the hand. :-)

Like Ellen expressed, I also struggle with my voice in my blogs (I do have two of them -- one for art and one for my healing business). What is challenging for me is how to remain "professional" and be myself (with all of my quirky thoughts and feelings) at the same time. I think it can be hard to balance. What I have learned is that people often like writing with my art posts.

Maybe you could experiment with a few different types of posts to see what feels best? Maybe I'll try that, too.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
