Watching the Grammys.
Fascinated by Lady Gaga.
What drives a person that way?
Incredibly talented. She seems incapable of taking a breath. Or a vacation.
Having a regular day. A sweatpants kind of day. No meat dresses.
If I had that kind of drive/focus, would I sell more paintings?
I'm not sure I would want that level of success.
I am sure I wouldn't want to pay the price for it.
We all make choices along the way.
I chose family, children and home a long time ago.
Painting and creating were a fortunate discovery that popped up in mid-life.
The ability to paint and draw has been a blessing and a salve in good times and bad.
Maybe that's the difference between me and Miss Gaga. ( As if there are any grounds for comparision...:) )
My creative blessings weren't my only focus.
I chose what was most important and grounding for me early on.
I needed the balance.
Art was the frosting on the cake.
I wouldn't change a thing.
Not even for an egg vehicle or a meat dress.
