8/8/17


We are now in Week 7 of our summer. This is the next to last week for camp. We leave for Arizona in 10 days. I am really looking forward to getting out to my house of course. It has been 6 months.

When we return we will have a lot on our plate. Too much really. Between it being my grandson's senior year, and our preoccupation with getting the house ready to sell for spring and our move in June. Well, I am not looking forward to all of it. Especially the senior year stuff. I don't know what to expect and it is seriously stressing me out. I don't want to have to think about things like SATs and senior essays, etc. I hope that my grandson steps up to the plate for all these things but I am not counting on it. So far he has not.

I am currently taking a class on selling art on Instagram with Amira Rahim. It is a very interesting class and I hope that I can somehow begin to do something as far as the selling of my work. Instagram seems to be where my art is being seen by the most people.

I have had a few requests via Instagram for doing art fairs and shows out in Tucson which I have had to decline since I am not living there yet. I think that is the hardest thing for me now. My life has felt like it has been on hold for too long now and I am beginning to lose steam.

Have a good week. I probably won't blog again until I get out to Arizona. I should have plenty of things to photograph out there since it is summer and monsoon season. Everything is out and about.

Hang in there, Roberta, I didin't become a pro until 50, and worked two jobs until 59 .. To support myself as an artist...But it is worth the wait. I did a lot of daydreaming which kept me in a happy mental state while I toiled, you will get there, and it will be perfect! Hugs!

Don't stress things out of your control, my friend. Just takes a toll on your life. Your grandson will either step up or he won't. He may just suprise you!!! Enjoy this milestone and enjoy the trip out west!!!
