How many times in the past 11 months have I expressed regret at lack of time for my art? I felt my “creativity” was taking a second place to constructing a second home in western Washington. How silly of me!
Our home is now in the finishing stages. Months of thought and seemingly hundreds of choices are now manifesting in the physical. And, what have I learned? 😉
Our home is a work of art. The clean lines of the inside walls, ceilings, and corridors, the color palette, the woodwork, all reflect a simplicity in taste that embodies the vision that my husband and I had for our home and our lifestyle.
Aha! I have not been in absentia from creating art for all these months, I have been creating a home as a work of art. Creativity has flourished, the raw materials have simply changed.
And now, as we move into the final push towards completion, I am smiling. Everytime I walk into our still unoccupied home, I am inspired to take a deep breath and simply enjoy the fruition of many hours of effort, while looking forward to the hours ahead of returning to work in my new studio!
