I'm back

At least I will try to get back. It is cold outside, the Christmas lights are on, the fire stove burning, and everyone in the family is asleep. Except for the cats of course. Life is good.
It is hard to keep oneself steady and calm and consistent day after day after day. Especially when all the projects come at the same time, and the oldest child decides that you don't understand him and the middle one is upset because you criticized her art, and the little one just want your attention all the time(and you are not Mom but actually a bear who is supposed to go berry picking), and the roof all of a sudden decided to leak and soccer and ballet are scheduled at the same time, and your husband gets back from work around 9 pm daily...Well, you know....
But then dinner is somehow ready, and everyone is fed, and finally even upstairs in bed, and the fire is so comforting, and the cats come to say that they still think I'm the best, and there is an hour or two of quiet painting.
I have my work table set up , for the first time in many years I have real work space, with shelves and a table of my own, and a lamp and all those fine supplies that have been waiting in boxes. So, I am making things! Making things , painting , felting makes me feel alive. And I am thankful for that.

Dear Vita, I thought I had lost your tracks, but here you are again! A little bit tired from the never-ending everyday tasks, but thankful for everything you have - your family, your art, the cozy new home!
I'm so happy to see what you've shared with us - I've missed your art! BTW your "Winter fishes" are still in our kitchen and we've agreed silently that the place on That wall is only theirs!:)...
Your children seem to have grown up very quickly! Who plays the piano? I play the piano, too...
Hope to hear from you again soon. Hugs!!

So glad you are back. Your art is very inspiring. I have often shared your posts or pictures (with link back naturally), because they have expressed so beautifully how I felt.
