"Retro Blooms" 10" x 8" acrylicI received numerous personal messages after my post regarding "How Do You Do It". I responded personally to most questions but perhaps some of you had some similar questions like When Do You Paint?, as it so happened that the day I shared was a non painting day as I had art errands to do, but I paint several days a week, sometimes on and off all day - sometimes 3 or 4 hours.

Robin you make it look so easy [sic] - and when you put it all down like that how does it make you feel to look over it? What is your reaction to it...

On a personal note it never ceases to amaze me how painting changes my paradigm to a positive all is right with me and the world place. I have been absorbed in responsibilities outside of my career and art making, sometimes feeling like "real life" is a thief. Then I take another look at it and realize how important it is to balance and exude gratitude in all things. I've been a bit off lately, dealing with a delay in something I'd been hoping to bring to fruition and changes in my living space. Well it's usually after or at the end of a "slump" or "bump" that I share I hit one. It's cyclical. Cathartic. It's also cathartic to be clearing physical stuff, moving belongings into keep and toss piles. It's a new day! Wishing you the best and Thanks for being part of my world - Robin
