Gathering Strength WIP Update 10-9-08

"Gathering Strength" WIP- By Belinda Lindhardt CP on stonehenge


Firstly, I would like to apologize to all my blog readers about the lack of posts of late. There is a number of reasons which i haven't been around, just a couple of them are: 1. having just moved, i haven't had much arttime so I have had nothing to post 2. i have been busy working, organizing, sorting all manner of things as well as computers so i had issues with getting those working and THEN 3. i formatted the computers so all my internet bandwidth was used up early by downloading drivers and wotnot so i wasn't able to visit websites or even post updates even if i had them.

I think i also have been allowing myself to have a bit of a break and do exactly what the above piece is about which is "Gathering Strength". I think now i look back on it, what i have been doing is to preparing myself for the next phase in life and art and working out what direction i want to go and which steps i want to take to get there, ALSO doing art seems to emotionally take alot out of me and at the end of the day after dealing with clients, the household and the kids etc it has been a bit of a struggle to get around to it all.
So, i am glad i gave myself permission just to sit on things for a bit and get to it when i can (sometimes as mothers we need to give ourselves permission for these things !!)

Good news is that i seem to have had my time turned a new corner and now i am ready to go go go and get it all done! I only wish i had a bit more energy and hours in the day but what i have learnt of late that i need to do what i can and worry about the rest tomorrow! Go with it !

For fellow CP's i have been taking notes and writing and description on my process with this one so stay tuned as i come to the end of it all and i will post about my CP techniques soon.

It sounds like you've been having quite a busy time of it, Belinda, and I'm glad you've turned the corner now. This piece is coming along extremely well and is going to be amazing when finished.

It's looking so beautiful Belinda!! I believe in the power of art to heal. I think it's because we think so much while we're working that in some way we're able to work through things easier.
I'm so glad you've turned a corner and I pray that the future is looking brighter for you.

Glad to see you again! Your "Gathering Strength" piece is looking great. I can relate to art taking a lot of energy. I worked with a cp drawing today and am exhausted. I'm happy that things might be looking better for you these days.
