WOW! So much has happened in the last few months, I can hardly believe it is already May. It is a fun story but the short of it is, I have moved to Cottonwood. I got a job with the Goodwill up here and made the move a week ago. There is a lot that transpired to get me to this point but here I am.
I am here to work more on my art and to be filled with peace. I truly believe this area, the whole Verde Valley, especially Sedona, is the right for my art. I just know it is going to explode up here and soon I will be able to support myself doing what I truly love.
I am just getting settled right now but the peace I feel is so marvelous. The sense of home, is very strong. It is hard to leave my family but I am at the point where I really need to follow my heart, listen to my soul, and chase my dreams. That is what Cottonwood is for me.
I have not had much time to paint with all that has been going on leading up to the move but I will get back to it this week. I hope to have some new paintings up in the ETSY store within the next few weeks. I am also going to talk to some shops here and in Sedona and see if I can get some art in the shops.
Uprooting my life has been a big deal for me and I am still adjusting to it all, but I know I made the right decision and I am so excited to see where things go from here. I’ll keep you posted.
