Being an Artistic Mother

Being an Artistic Mother is often challenging, especially when you have a Thomas train track making its way into your studio with the three year old not far behind driving his train. Its hard with constant interruptions and turning around to find your baby eating paper from the floor - perhaps proof that love of paper starts early.
You have to learn to make the most of your five minutes and be able to pick up where you were forced to leave off. Some nights I feel like crawling into bed after the kids but always feel better if I can get into my studio.
The other thing is - you are on your own, I don't know any other artistic mothers where I live. So I rely on the online community of mothers trying to balance both loves.
ok see thats what I am talking about - now I have to go and fix a booboo.
