How is it, that just when I am super busy with homeschooling two boys, sick cats, housework, lockdown issues, problems with teachers and interfering aunties, that suddenly people want to commission me to do super cool artworks? I don’t know, but it seems to be a natural law! Whenever I get busy doing practical and sensible work, things turn up that I would love to devote all my attention and energy to!
I am pandemic-tired. And I guess many of you are too. The lockdown forces me to spend half of my time on my boys, so the rest of that time has to go to housework, groceries and cooking. But I refuse not to paint! And I will do these commissions! Because a year ago, after having to have dealt with many people who held me back, I promised myself that nothing will stop me anymore from doing what I love and want to do: make art, sell art, make friends. And I bloody well will!
