I made the choice to withdrawl from the uni course that I had started. Too much time away from my young family and not enough time to create my own work.
I know to keep myself mentally healthy I need to create. I need to be able to create my own work and not create what others tell me to. There is a huge difference between the two and I know which is right for me.
It bewilders me how people have such a negative response to my withdrawl. A friend emailed me and said she was proud of me for knowing myself and how much strength it took to walk away from something which is not right for me. Those words have brought me much comfort. You are a wonderful friend D!!!
So now that one door has closed, more are opening. I have started on a piece for an art award and am very happy with how it is starting out. Lord knows how it will finish, but at least there is a beginning.
After the monsterous installation for the Sculpture Walk...I have decided that hanging 42 pieces is a lot of work and probably won't do it again....in the near future.....would love to attempt another multiple installation....just not for a while!
Promise to post pics as soon as they are downloaded.
