Great Gobs of Confusion 2

Muse Perplexity is in a perpetual state of confusion. This is a very confusing time for me...I am reinventing myself and going through many changes...my artwork is also going through manic changes...

I am pleased with myself for taking the step forward in my art selling journey...it took an enormous amount of guts to walk into that gallery...it also took a lot of courage to ask for critiques...I would, however, have preferred some positive comments...

I am unsure which way to proceed...I will not let the cool reception stop my work...but I will make some adjustments...after all these were the first angel paintings...I did not expect them to soar...(some angel humor)...

Okay...where to go from here...I have a magazine to get published by next week...so I don't have time for a pity party...or to paint...but I can ask for guidance, go into discernment mode, and go to aerobics...water aerobics that is...

I have joined a water aerobics class at the local rec center...it is a hoot...I am probably the youngest...by 10 years or so...but it seems to be helping my spine...and that is worth it's weight in gold to me...walking like a weeble is not something I want to do...it is embarrassing because people think I do it because I am fat...when I am fat because I can barely move...but I feel some relief after two weeks in the pool...I really try to get a good workout...it's not easy doing water aerobics correctly...

Today's aMUSEment - get out of the house and get some exercise...go for a walk in your neighborhood...if it's too hot, go walk in the mall...just get your body moving somehow...
U Be Creative Today!!

I'm going to take your advice and get out of the house today and move myself. I need to do that more often. Water aerobics sounds like fun.

Movement can alleviate a lot if angst--both inner and outer!! Yes, I was at JCCFS; I love it so much, I want to live there.

see you there! said...

I particularly like your drawing today (Perplexity). I like the variety in the colors.

In art we have to go our own direction don't you think? The right audience is out there.

You are funny, but I don't know if you are trying to be? I think it is becasue I think I get you and I smile at the fact that I do. Does that make sense?? Water aerobics is the best ever. I used to teach it. It is really good. It tones your arms alot. My mom lost 30 lbs doing water aerobics and eating healthier. She ate as much as she wanted of inly healthy stuff. Lots of veggies and fish. Perhaps I should start too. It has been a chubby summmer in my world. YIKES. xoxoxoxo
