Several years ago, I had a job I loved: running a graphic design program at a community college. For most of it, I was able to work on my bliss in the off hours, and would typically paint about 25-30 pieces every year. But as time went on, the job became more demanding, and not only was I bringing work home on weekends, I was getting cranky and snarly whenever my husband suggested we see a movie or otherwise enjoy life. By the time the job and I parted ways, I was down to 2 paintings a year and very unhappy about that.
Following that, a doctoral program claimed a lot of my time, but once it was over I got back to the business of painting. Since then I've completed well over 200 pieces, and here is the latest, finished today, and the 26th painting for 2017.
