8x10 oil on board
Do you ever feel like you are running out of time? I'm about 6 weeks away from having my second baby, and feel like that time is slipping through my fingers. I know what to expect with the whole baby process this time around, but my major concern is time. I love being a mother, a wife, and an artist but it feels like by growing a family, that the other roles are getting larger and the part that's just me is getting smaller.
I think I'm just in this juxtapose position that I want to have all my work done and have the whole birthing process over with. So with losing time, I just want time to go faster. I know, now, it's just a waiting game for basically life to happen.
It's official, I have started working on holiday and client work, before I go on maternity leave. After Nora was born, I think I only lasted a couple weeks before I was back in my art studio working. Making art was the best sort of healing after birth because it was a little patch of time that I was doing something for myself and it's just what I needed.
