The change of season is a time for renewal

I know that I have been quiet and that it didn't seem like much were going on. I've been working full time at Wessel Snyman Creative from about the 2nd of April, I'm working at the Fringe Arts store at Spier Contemporary on Friday and in the meantime I'm also working on a commission, proposals for two other commissions, new artwork for a two-day show at Wessel Snyman Creative and while this is all happening - or at least in the pipeline - we're also moving from our current flat to a garden flat in Oranjezicht at the end of this week. Things are hectic, to say the least.

But it's not all as bad as I make it seem. Being busy is actually really a blessing, and while I may not be making a living from my art YET, the studio looks and feels great, I'm feeling more creative than I've felt in a very long time and I am producing work that I feel proud of. I'm also working on finishing my Flotsam series before the end of May, and continue creating work for my and Lucy's Skinner's September exhibition entitled 'Dare to dream in silent moments'.

Life is good and I feel really honoured and privelaged to be where I am now, to know the people who are so amazing and supportive to me, and while the season is changing, I feel that everything in life is also changing and renewing itself again - bringing new oppotunities, challenges, beauty and experiences.
