"Wild Flowers" - Acrylic on Canvas
Do you ever get sick after completing a big project?
My new book (Artful Color) went out on Friday and by Sunday I was flat on my back on the couch nursing hot tea and a box of kleenex.
Took me back 5 years or so, to when I released Eye for Color and... you guessed it... was sick for a week following.
It is as if all that I have, all my energy, all my focus (and yes sleepless nights) go into the project leaving nothing left to protect and nurture my body. And now I'm paying for it.
Just like I did 5 years ago.
And as I lay on the couch I realized that my 2 self published books were released EXACTLY 5 years apart. To the day.

Funny that it took being sick, laying on the couch listening to the birds and watching the clouds to realize the coincidence, the connection, the cycle of things.
