Repaint My Life


I am one who is changing my look. I am one who is repainting the walls of my life and giving them more vibrancy. I am one who is having fun anticipating the new me!

I started this process in October and have stalled due to some health issues. The process continues but at a slower pace that I had anticipated. I have begun the arduous task of sorting my studio. As I move from one focus to another I find I have too many things related to the old focus and am working hard to sort and toss things so I can sell or give them away. That is very hard as they have become a symbol of who I am/was and it is an very emotional process of letting go.

Our pastor intern, Aaron White, gave his last sermon on June 1. It was titled Hello, I Love You, I'm Sorry, Goodbye. (When the sermon is posted it will be at: http://liveoakuu.org/sermons.html) He really made me think hard about what is important to me and my family. And a lot of art supplies I will never use are not important, they just feel that way. It is all about letting go of the things that don't feed and nurture your life/soul.

So I will be clearing out my horded supplies. That is good news for my friends who are still in the genre of art I was in when I collected the bits and bobs mixed media collage artists and rubber stampers need. I may get back into it at some point, but then I will have the joy of collecting it all again if I need to later!
