OK - the truth is I have 4-5 projects sitting in my studio that have been started and not completed.  This has been bugging me because I like to complete things.  Anyway...I am on a mission by the end of the year to get them all completed.  I just finished one and wanted to share it with you.  I have been working with joint compound and I am loving the process and the result.  Taking me out of my comfort zone because it is quite messy.  I find joint compound stuck to everything.  The good news is, it flakes off. 
I want my art to be about "Simple Truths/Simple Reminders" which means this piece sat around in my studio waiting for just the right words.  Then they came. 

I have diligently been working on several projects toward making my dreams come true and feeling like I'm not getting anywhere.   It is a bummer, too.  I sat down to watch Oprah's Super Soul Sunday where she was interviewing Steven Pressfield.  He defines resistance as "a negative force that arises whenever we try to move from a lower level to a higher level".  OMG it was like lightening struck!!!!!  As Oprah would say I had an A-Ha moment.

Steven Pressfield says resistance is as natural as gravity.  That made so much sense to me.  And when we can identify that what we are bumping up against is "resistance" then we are able to remove any judgement about ourselves and then push thru.  So... that's where I am right now ~ pushing thru resistance.  He, also, says..."take your ass where you heart wants to go".
