Never enough time....

Do you ever find that there are not enough hours in the day? By the time I am home from work (teaching ART in elementary school to grades 1,2,4,5 and K/1 special needs) it is time for homework help with my 5Th grade daughter, grocery shopping, dropping off at soccer, picking up at soccer, cooking, cleaning and laundry.... checking email, cleaning cat litter, vacuum and do the dishes. As much as I envy the ladies living in the huge mansions in my neighborhood I sure don't envy the time it must take to keep it running.

I want to sit here in my studio and paint, look at all your blogs, sipping morning coffee and reading art magazines.... By the time I am done with work and chores I am just exhausted and the creative part of my brain on stand by.

Don't get me wrong!!! I love my family and job.... and in 3 weeks I am off for the entire summer to paint and enjoy early mornings in my studio. So why am I complaining? who knows.... guess I was just kind of whiny today :)

I made this piece a few years ago and just found it looking for something else :) I think I like it.

hi!!You asked what I was using to hang board with. I use nailess saw tooth hangers from Uline.com..(about .o2 cents each)..If I were going to hang in a gallery, I would use wire.
Love your work!!

I think I like it too. As a retired elem teacher, (and mother-never retired!) I know that kids can really take it out of you!
Good thing you have your art.
