Selfish Inspiration

It has been almost a year since I've created a new piece. I've been so busy with other things in my life. But constantly longing to get into the studio and create. The way I reignited my love for painting 14 years ago was by buying a house and needing art on the walls. Through painting for myself I became inspired to continue this path. Then after this became a business and I started getting commissions I lost my enthusiasm. Or rather I lost the willingness to make time for this thing that I love which gives my comfort. 

This last weekend with my partner out of town I had time to finally paint the walls in my house. I have to admit that I absolutely love painting walls. There is something so satisfying about it. With new color on the walls I have been faced with the same dilemma that had originally inspired me so much. I am now selfishly inspired to create something for my own walls. This feels so much better than having to do a commission.
