Circular Time

“I have never thought of time as being linear. I believe in circular time,
one season following another.”
Josy Hilkes Britton

Time does seem to move in a circle and the rotation gets faster and faster! Hard to believe we are moving into a new season already but I can feel the change in the air. It has been a busy, fantastic summer and I do hate to see it go, but it is time to refocus. The circle of time is moving…

Labor Day has come and gone and I will soon be getting on the road. The first weekend in September brings my fall festival schedule into full swing with five exciting events lined up. The September air brings a renewed energy. I am renewed as well with a sense of excitement for the future. I am delighted to have been chosen to participate in these upcoming shows and to have the chance to exhibit my work and meet and greet interested collectors. Studio time will be limited for a few weeks as I participate in these events. However, the break from the studio routine always brings me back in with new direction…full circle.

I was thrilled to have recently been Friday’s Featured Abstract Artist on Lynne Taetzsch’s Abstract Art blog. Lynne features abstract art, abstract artists, and the daily practice of painting and drawing on her blog each week. Thank you Lynne!

“One of the essential characteristics we must have to be happy and productive artists is the skill to navigate our way through random time; so that even without a clock for a compass, and without a clear destination,
we still know what direction to go.”
Eleanor Blair
