I'm sorry to have been away so long. Live has been so busy of late and my art has taken the hardest hit. I am coaching for the Twin Cities Junior Roller Derby and my girls both skate in that. Add in school work, home work, basketball and daily life, I have gotten lost in the shuffle.
My friend Randi shared this with me today and I wanted to pass it along:
"Being a mother and an artist is a partnership that can fuel each other, but it takes determination. Creating art is a release, but it is not for the faint of heart. Not only does it require determination, but also dedication and belief in self. I think that is why art saves. It is a way to reach into yourself and declare with paint or pencil that what you have to say or feel matters enough to be put out into the world. And it does." - Bridget Guerzon Mills
