From feeling like buckling under pressure, to....

This morning I woke up feeling like I just might break. I love what I do, so much that it consumes the majority of my mind and time. There are times though, that make me feel like I just want to run far far away. It isn't that I haven't gone through stressful times before, and I certainly have been through worse. The only thing I can do to keep myself from completely drowning is try to focus on the positive. So today, my lifeline is knowing that I get to take my family to Memphis, Tennessee for RiverArtsFest this weekend (we love Memphis) and knowing that I accomplished my goal of making four new tree paintings and I am really happy with them.

Four new etched tree paintings in progress.
Another positive note is that I get to be featured on ScatNStyle's blog this week. She contacted me about answering some interview questions on her blog. I believe she found me through Mary C. Nasser's blog because I see that she has also interviewed Mary and Susie Tenzer. So if you would like to see a super cool music blogger that takes the time to appreciate visual art, and learn a little more about me, click here. Thank you so much Deborah for making me feel special.

See? I already feel a little better, just thinking and writing about nice people and good things to come.
