i feel better when the barometric pressure is low...

and today it's finally rainy so i feel a bit more like myself. 

the past week has been super hot and sunny and i always feel like crap in that kind of weather. my skin breaks out from the sun and i feel so drained. creatively, i feel blank. but today is better. 

i'm on vacation from work and i've been wanting to paint but it's been hard because my entire family has been home too and i haven't had much quiet time to get in my head. i've needed that. 

but this morning i had an idea. i often look to other artists (of all mediums) for inspiration. lately that hasn't been working for me so i've decided to take some time to look within myself. i need an exercise....an assignment. to get myself back on track. i've decided to do a 30 day project. i may extend it to 100 days if i feel i need to later on. 30 days of memories... from my childhood, my marriage, my experiences with my children. it'll be personal, and it will dig deep....but i feel like i need that. 

ill still work on other stuff when the mood and inspiration hits, but I feel like for right now this is what I need to create art that is totally mine, inspired from me and my life and art that tells my own story...
