I have been thinking that I need to draw away from 'art as a business' for a while. Not to give up, but rather to regroup. It's been a very slow and rather disappointing year in that respect (for a lot of people I suspect), and I feel I've lost a little of my creative 'mojo'. And at the moment there's so much work to be done at home, the garden is crying out for attention, there are walls to be painted and window frames to be oiled, and we have set ourselves the goal of having it all ready to put on the market in a year's time, in anticipation of a new adventure in our lives, a move to the country. So I think art might go back to being a hobby for a while, to make some small and beautiful things for the sheer joy of it. And, of course, to go on blogging about them!
There are other things too needing my energy. A decision to be made. A hard one. Something that over the years has caused me worry as I've stood on the sidelines knowing I can't do anything, and I finally realised is never going to change. But if I step away and let it go, I will lose something very precious. I need some space to think about it. Some time.
