I’m beginning to feel like I’m finally getting somewhere with this “art” thing. I am learning a lot with the projects I’ve been working on, and I am almost feeling brave enough to step up my game and leave the dolls behind and just sculpt. Using dolls as a base to make something is cool, but I’m already feeling the limits using an existing shape to work with. I have three more to finish, and then I get to see if I am really capable of building from the ground up.
I’m realizing that I also need to focus more on my writing, my book is nearly at the halfway point so I can’t just abandon it. At the same time, music is calling. I need to make time to schedule all this stuff in to really make myself happy, all in the hours outside of a day job. Lately I feel like my brain is going to explode because in the hours I’m doing the day job, all I think about is going home and making things, then I get home and I have to push myself to get things done because I’m mentally exhausted from work. I guess that’s more motivation to try and build this into less of a part time gig. For now, it’s off to work as usual, and facing a 1 day weekend.
If only the odds of winning the lottery were higher!
