I've Been Gone


"Gone from Myself"


"Bruised Peaches and Cream"
(Ha! It's so true though!)

I've been sick and really haven't felt like doing any art. I have been slowly working on the dolls and trying to figure out which shows this Fall I can reasonably do. Tonight was 2 hours(while I watched 'A Very Long Engagement' for maybe the 4th time-oh, I love that movie every time) for one sleeve which seems very silly. I was very happy because a good friend of mine was in town for a museum conference so seeing her was a lot of fun. Besides that, I have just been a pain, sick and tired. I worked with some photographs and I look, well, sick and tired. It would be lovely to somehow get away and do something different, but I need to get my act together first. If I can ever do that then I can take a some kind of break from where I am. I hope all is well with all of you out in blogland. I am reading your blogs and as always, loving what you are up to and have to share so thank you!

sweet merle, that is not so good to hear that you have been feeling ill. It is hard to be so creative when feeling low. so hope you are on the mend now & back to yourself very soon. *ruthie*

Chin up Merle, put on your stripies, and your fairy gown, sit upon your painted chair and have a nice cup of tea.... Ren xxx

Dear Merle, I hope you are feeling much better. Just take some time for yourself to simply `be' and all will be well. Your creativity will return tenfold. Lots of love and healing light. xxx

thank you ren! oh, stripey socks would have helped if it wasn't so hot here! the weather has been out of control so my migraines have as well-i always think i can take art to bed with me but that is just silly. it is hard when you have ideas and things that need to be created but you just feel too tired and out of it to do them. hopefully this weekend and next week will be better. hope all is well with you-i am loving you mossy green sweater!

Merle,
I completely understand how you feel when the creative and emotional energy moves too fast and gets out of control, it can make you feel exhausted...
Take things easy and look after yourself to build up your strength again.
You will have to visit England someday and kick up your heals with us fairy folk. So you better get well!:)

Much love as always. Jo.xx
