This past week I started a new semester at Grad school and for all my excitement, I ended with insecurity.
My dream to become a international artist seems so far away. When I look around and see the time and dedication my peers are contributing I feel humbled.
My conclusion is I am spread too thin and getting older by the moment.
It rained most of Saturday then in the late afternoon a patch of blue sky appeared and the sky was adorned with a double rainbow. I took this opportunity to go for a drive to scout out new painting locations.
As I set out to scout for new painting locations the sun had settled just above the rolling hills spilling golden light and casting long sighing shadows.Â For a moment the spinning wheels of my negative thoughts slowed to a halt.
I found myself driving down country roads full ofÂ puddles of aqua reflection which wound through glorious emerald fields punctuated by an occasionalÂ faltering barn.
It was breathtaking!
Once again I was reminded why I have to paint.
Did I mention there were cows?
(Wendy’s dream is still to become a influential international artist, but she left 8 Women Dream in March of 2010 to complete grad school.Â She is still a strong supporter of 8 Women Dream and you will see her in the comments on the blog.)
