Focus On Your Goal

Shooting Star Flowers

I've been in quite a state of transition lately, moving from the US to Australia.

We've been staying with family so I've been without a creative space. I've also been without most of my art supplies as I could only bring what I could fit in my suitcase.

It's been hard, trying to meet my commitments, continuing to create for my blog and online classes without a place to set up, but I've managed.

It's times of transition when we need to focus on our goals the most, and I've spent a lot of time reassessing my priorities and recalibrating my goals.

My art style and process has been in transition as well, and although I feel raw and unstructured right now, I know it's a temporary state and when things finally settle for me I'm going to be in a whole new phase of my creative life.

Holding my focus has been hard, and will continue to be so for a while, but I keep creating.  I'm NEVER without a sketchbook a pen and a little pan of watercolors.

My sketchbook art is not particularly spectacular at the moment, nor is is very structured, but at times like this the single most important thing for me to do (apart from focus on my family) is to keep creating...no matter what!
