Out of the Studio

Update
Even tho, I am out of the studio...
It is impossible 
NOT TO FIND TIME FOR 
ART
***

Yes
I am taking a break...
Just not from 
who I am or what a love!
makes sense, right?
***
I have found it almost impossible
  not to want to  
create some art
post pictures
keep in touch with my followers
visit the sites and blogs I adore
and
share my vacation... my life.



Taking this trip has allowed me to
reflect
relax
regroup
***
In the end...
I love that I can say, "I'm an artist!"
Yes...
I gave up my dead-end jobs...
worked hard at making a living.
I walked around like a zombie...
being numb as a way of survival.
Became an Art Teacher...
taught others, through the years
 The 7-Elements of Art...
and
loved every minute of it!
Then...
I made my 2nd 
biggest decision
in my career.
Decided to...
leave the classroom
say goodbye to my students
and 
work on me!
***
Nurture my creative soul.
Take a walk on 
the wild side... as scary as it may be,
and invest in myself.
Believe in myself 
and 
my artistic abilities.
To grow...
 to be challenged in my skills...
just as my students were.
To be confident...
this is who I am
and where I need to be
in my life.
 To share my talents...
with like-mined others
and
to live the rest of my life out...
As an artist.

How about you?
Are you listening to your inner voice...
I think I hear it calling you.
