Happy Sheep

Oh boy, Iím just getting back from my long morning walk. I wanted to break down in tears as soon as I left my apartment. Though Iím easily affected by this gloomy LA weather, its more than that. Iím feeling discouraged with my art career.

Immediately I started feeling gratitude for everyone and everything in my life. Iím blessed in every way. How could I possibly be sad? Yet being grateful didnít alleviate the sadness. I kept walking and thinking about how to get out of this, yet knowing I had to feel it through; I need to cry. Iíd wait until I got back home to let the tears flow. They havenít come yet.

In the middle of my walk I had a mini epiphany. I had to stop focusing on where I Ďwasnítí and start focusing on where I want to go. This is the clue. Iím being pushed to think bigger and outside of myself. The uncertainty feels scary! Iím feeling overwhelmed and curious at the same time.

This past week, aside from working on painting my apartment (because I need a fresh start), Iíve also worked on my Pink Sheep. Thereís something magical about these pink sheep; I feel joy doing them. And though theyíre very simple in nature; theyíre meaningful. The series is a representation of not following the norm, off not conforming to standards other than your own. The piece here is titled, ďWill Work For Sex.Ē The idea of a sheep working for sex is silliness. How could I possibly feel sadness in seeing this? It cracks me up.

And as for the rest of the day, I canít say. But I'd rather be a happy pink sheep than a sad one.
