"RECENT WORKS 2017-2018, ages 44-45 years old"
"In my mid-20's, I realized I did Art because I felt it was the first time "I" really "mattered." I liked it. I liked trying new things all of the time. I was excited. I wanted to share it with everybody. It came to me naturally. I was good at it. I Won Many Awards for it. And people Praised me for it. I created my life around it. I was Successful. I was very busy.
It soon became too much for me, and I realized I was missing out on my big family. The big family I always wanted. It became increasingly hard for me to do Art, run Businesses, and be a Mother. The mother I wanted to be. "I" didn't need to "matter," my children and family did.
However, I still needed Art to help our very large family financially. So through years of balance, I reached a compromise of just offering a few Select Courses, that I was truly interested in and dedicated to, to special students in very small class sizes. And the rest of the time, would be my family time.
After getting rid of so many years of wasted work on things irrelevant to me, you will see in My Recent Works, now, besides my Classical Portrait Work, that I Draw, Paint, and Sculpt what "matters" to me. My Children. Themes of My Children, Mother and Child, Lovers, Dancers, etc. With an occasional Creative Abstract or Piece." -Guinevere
