Sometimes you go to your #artiststudio to just breathe the air in. Lately that feels like the extent of my #studiopractice — luckily I can make work at home, during naps or after bedtime. But getting to that #roomofmyown has proven harder then expected this year. But every once in awhile I pull myself away and go... I didn’t actually make but I cared for the space, watered the plants, changed the work on the walls, sat and just breathed the studio in —- remembering I am an #artist this #sanctuary of me is always waiting patiently for when I’m ready. #motherartist #artistasmother #artistmother #arim #femaleartist #wip

    it’s so hard to make it happen when they are little! i love this, just taking time to breathe it in.
    i am starting to see that during naps and after their bedtime is just not enough. i’m working on incorporating some work throughout my day with the kids. the work itself might have to change and reflect this shift, and that’s ok . more than ok. it’s a grace and an unexpected blessing. learning to flow through this season instead of resisting or forcing an old way is key.
    i’ll be sharing about this process on my page.

    @ancagray love the phrase "....learning to flow through..." !

    @artisteach thank you. letting go of resistance is the only sane way through this.

    @ancagray oh definitely the naps & evenings are NOT enough but it often feels like all I can get... Though on good days I can work a bit with her too. My son was a total studio babe-- this one not so much. But we're working on it.

    @joettamaue so true keeping our sanity is so much about finding the flow- not just through motherhood as an artist but all things that pull is out of our comfort zone and ease
