How can one simple word  be so difficult to so many of us? 

We are in a crazy, busy world.  We are all trying to find our way yet enjoy the present moments.  Life truly is a balancing act, we've heard it many times.  We, especially women, seem to juggle our lives, our passions, time for ourselves, full time jobs, caring for a home and children.  At times it seems overwhelming.  We find, however, that when we take the time for our passions and time for ourselves that somehow many of the other parts of life become so much more satisfying.  True!

Balance in art, especially abstract art is important.  "One way balance is established in artwork is through the interplay of line and form.  Balanced compositions with smooth-flowing repetitive lines and well-spaced rounded forms tend to emanate a sense of calm and gentle movement.  Unbalanced compositions with jagged lines, intersections, severe angles and sharp angular forms create a sense of tension and drama." - from Professional Artist Magazine, May 2014.

Today I spent an entire day in the studio.  It was heavenly.  I worked on 'balance' in my paintings by experimenting with some new shapes and forms.  I worked on 'balance' in my life by doing some yoga and going for a walk as well as the normal house hold chores.  Somehow it seems there never is enough time in the day to 'do it all' - here's hoping you find some 'balance' to your day!  Enjoy!
