We miss my Mom a lot! She is back in Florida now and we are back in our regular routine. She will miss the children so much but fortunately she is in Florida and not in Cuba where it would be so hard for her to travel.
This week will be sooo busy for me but I am ready for it and looking forward to winning the battle with time. I will have to make magic in order to do all the things that I have in my list. On the other hand I am so excited! Bill and I just got a great scanner and I am in heaven because with this new machine I am going to scan hundreds of 35 mm slides that I have with photos of my old work from the nineties. And here you have a little advance of it!
And this last picture is a more graphic version of The Lesson (the original painting that you see up there) that I created in 2007 for my Etsy store. It is the first time that I make a version of an old piece and it was lots of fun. I would love to paint more, I used to do it everyday in Cuba but back then I didn't have my "kiddies" and my life was all about my art. Now I have to find some balance between art and family. That's life, after you have your children it is not about yourself anymore and this is the biggest challenge that we, as creative people face, but we should never stop doing what we are passionate about! While our children grow our creativity should grow with them!
I wish you a happy Monday and wish me good luck!
