Doing Too Much Good Stuff?

“Capricious Poppies” by MJ Beswick

While cleaning my studio this week, I came across this painting I did eighteen years ago called Capricious Poppies.  It made me think, “That’s how I feel right now!” Like these poppies, I am going in all different directions at once.  It’s all “good stuff” but I have not blogged in a while and that is not good. I am working on the final proofs for my new book, Messy Magic Birthday and learning there is more to publishing than I thought.  I am heavily involved with the RAL Art League’s transition from Club to Art Center and leading the RAL Membership Team. Volunteering is so worthwhile and fun but it can also be hard to balance. I am doing some local talks and a workshop. I do enjoy teaching. And I am trying to spend a few hours in my studio painting because that keeps me sane. Do you think April may be packed with too much good stuff?
