If you have visited my Gallery, you will probably have noticed a common theme in many of my digital collage compositions. That theme is Time. I love using vintage pocket watches and clocks. One of my favorites for May is End of Time. With all my focus on time, you would think I would be on time.
Maybe you think artists are sort of scatterbrained, living in their own little world. Some artists may be like that, but most of the artists I know are organized, making connections through social media, running a website gallery store while doing all the other things everyone does in life. You know, housework, shopping, paying bills, homeschooling children during the pandemic, and whatever else needs to be done.
I am usually organized, and try to keep on schedule. Sunday-off of the computer and social media. It is my day to worship and rest. Monday-catch up on email and social media. Tuesday-class work.Wednesday thru Saturday-full of things to do. Each day I try to balance my artistic life with the rest of my life. It has been a challenge lately. I find myself struggling to keep up, to work on my art, do class assignments, help with a family member that just has surgery, and do the boring, mundane chores like laundry and grocery shopping. Add to that feeding two adopted hungry cats that could care less about art, family life, or health issues. That requires one organized artist, on top of all she has to do. Except when Time Flies and she reaches The End of Time. Like it being Saturday when my weekly blog should have been posted on Thursday!
How about you? Does “time fly” for you? Do you find yourself at “the end of time” and wonder what happened to your day or week?
