It's not that easy getting settled back into my Oregon home. First of all the shock of reentry, holidays, family get-togethers, unpacking both art and personal belongings have consumed my time. All of the family and holidays were wonderful diversions, but now it's time to get back to creating art.
One obstacle has been the cold weather and snow. Here is the exterior of my art studio, which is in our barn.
But once inside the studio, it is warm, comfortable and well lit.
But no matter how wonderful the space, I've not yet felt inspired. As I settle in here in Oregon, I trust I will begin to get my creative spirit back. It's not the first time I've experienced the struggle of adapting to a new place and new situation. Although my home in Oregon is neither a new place nor new situation, the two year break from here has given me a whole new experience to draw from.
Here's a start that I was happy with, but an hour later I felt I'd ruined it. Oh my!
