Greeting Cards

Hitting a wall as an artist is really coming to terms with your talent and abilities and wondering if it matters. I have just navigated a slice of the artworld that made sense to me personally. It was once a strategy with coming to terms with my place. I recently saw a designer who really made a name for herself in the jewelry market. Not fine art, but who knows what she aspired to be. Anyhow in my eyes she really made it, people knew her name and work and she got a hefty price for her designs.... [more]

Gifted

Comng to some new realizations in my mind.  I skipped a grade in grammer school and it somehow through me into a tailspin.  My life has kind of repeated this patterning.  I could express this giftedness in my art and yet I don't feel any control over it's use.  I'll have to be used by it.  Inspired.  Picasso inspires me again.

I've been in Minneapolis, Mn for 5 days.  I feel a million miles from home.  Talked with my mom last night.  She sounds different since the stroke.  It is like she had a shock and then melted.  She seems more relaxed because she is.  I don't know how to judge it.  I feel uncomfortable with my striving.  It is almost like I need something that isn't happening.   [more]

Dilemma

Just sitting in my motel in Sheridan, Wyoming.  I've been stranded in my room for 3 days waiting for parts, repairs, claims to work themselves out.  I would have pushed myself to make the 375 mile journey in one night, but life had other plans.  Glad for the rest.  Without a car and below zero degree temps I'm not doing anything and I think it has been good for me.  I'm so restless trying to push my life agenda.  So here I am.  Just Julie on the guard rail, existing moment to moment.
