Finding Some Balance

August 14, 2014

The links in the sidebar of this blog have now been updated to reflect current links that work and to remove ones that don’t. In the process, I’ve enjoyed revisiting some of my favorite artists’ pages and am newly inspired by them all. I was sad to see some of them get left behind, but nowadays there are so many ways and places to have an online presence. Everyone has to find their own.

I’d like to say this blog is going to be updated more often. It always depends on how many other demands there are on my time. However, I’m seeking a renewed balance and cutting way back on  my social media time. It’s so tempting to always be “plugged in” but it can become a distraction. I want to make more art, and share it with you.

With that in mind, here are two of my most recent collages. I am just dying to get out to the studio to do more, but have to take care of some mundane and completely uninspiring things first. Maybe before the day is out I can do that. Have a creative day!

    Martha, thank you for sharing your work and your thoughts. You’re absolutely right about social media consuming so much precious time away from the studio. Love your work and keep it coming!

    in defense of fb, you may not have noticed, but there are several artists groups on there that you can join for inspiration

      Yeah, Sue. I have noticed. What I need to do is find a group or two and just hang out there. I have two groups that I check in with already, but not art ones.
