I have officially retired from my “day job” of teaching! Day job is a misnomer really, because teaching is certainly not an 8-5 job but I won’t go into that now. Let’s just say there are some aspects I will really miss about teaching and many things I will not.
So, my intent for my art upon retiring was to dedicate a minimum number of hours during the week to creating and the business end of it. I am not considering this a job but a “passionate experiment” (stole that off the internet, will give credit later). There’s a large painting that’s been waiting patiently for me to decompress and de-clutter (my mind and my house) and two new canvases which I have drawn on but not lifted a brush to yet. TODAY is the day!
