"creating small worlds"

Update from my messy and busy studio :

in process detail: " tail feathers" from the Green Peahen piece - the final piece before I hang the "Beasts" show

I have been spending many many long hours in my studio stitching and painting in order to finish all my ten pieces for the "Beasts" show that will hang on the 27th (in a week) and open on November 10 at the Hanover Theatre in Worcester, MA. The hardest part is to remain focused and level-headed. I find it's easy to loose perspective when I am working under this much pressure as I ignore the other roles (mother, wife, friend, as well as my three other part time jobs) in my life. I guess I wouldn't have it any other way. Sleep is for sissies. 

A friend on Facebook recently described the above vignettes as me, "creating small worlds for all of (us) to fall in to" ... I love it ! That simple encouragement kept me going as the tired voices in my head tempt me off track. That comment tells me that actually I am exactly on the path I have chosen and I just need to keep going.
