Instead of lights, camera, action it’s been lights, plumbing, flooring, demo and more demo.  The messages(details) are in my head, and on note paper and in a notebook and in a folder scattered everywhere.  I haven’t had a minute to organize, or to MAKE ART…boohoo…and I’ve been so absent from the blog, five whole days, never happens, so this is the life of a farmhouse rehab.

My head feels like his head, information swirling around, a big OH of a mouth and electrified hair…let’s not even talk about the gopher(groundhog) as large as a sheep….he will have to go or the dogs will go nuts….hopefully he will escape unscathed.

Eyes off, head buzzing with the information overload.  I did hide out in the barn for a while just to clear my head.

The message are in my head, now to get them together….

  1. Oh honey… i know this feeling all to well. You have to do what you have to do and technology is last on the list if it makes it at all. Love this head.. looks like me less than a year ago. Hang in there. You’ll get it done and be happy in the end.

  2. Love what you have made, sorry that life is interfering with your arting time. Valerie

  3. He looks as though he is echoing your frustrations. Good way to get them out, making some art when you are able. I know when you are all moved into your new house, studio set up, creating like crazy, you will look back on this time and know it was all worth it. But I can certainly relate. This is one of the reasons I like winter so well, not much else to be doing but hanging out in the studio, following the muse.

  4. I can totally relate to him…especially his mouth :)

  5. Every time you wrote message all I could read was massage. Guess I am thinking you need a wonderful spa day filled with massages with all the demo and rehabing you’re doing!

    Ahh,looks like some of the head messages are coming out of his mouth…over load maybe?
    Cute though.

  7. I think it’s time for some yoga and perhaps a good massage. Hang in there…keep telling yourself how wonderful it’s going to be. I am sure you already are. xo

  8. I take compassion on you Corinne… that seems to be an extremly energy sapping time for you…
    keep care !

    Nervertheless this ARTWORK is SIMPLY A*M*A*Z*I*N*G!

  9. it rattles the brain! you will survive but it will be a while! meanwhile, sit down once in a while and take deep breaths!

  10. Cool depiction of what can happen when we have a lot going on!
    Take care and good luck on what sounds like a huge project…
    keep an eye out for that mutant groundhog (didn’t know that came that big= ACK!)
    oxo

  11. Same here, but I don’t have a barn to hide out. I want one!!!

  12. Love your head, my friend, and that was totally me yesterday! But, today, my head is less cluttered as I got a lot done. I can (almost) see clearly now! I have the feeling that you head will look like this well into the Fall, but, I know, too, that it is truly a labor of love that fills both your head and your days! Mwah!

  13. I love how you left parts of the background visible in his face. A year from now he’ll remind you of this hectic time in your life and you’ll smile (I hope!)

  14. Oh, Corinne, it sounds like you could use some dayes with a little help,- or maybe many dayes …. So much work to be done, for you two, inside and out !
    I think some minutes in that barn ceveral times the day, will keep you more relaxed, and the need of creating, will have to be satisfied just a little also every day!!!
    Don`t end up like this sweet soul, with a brain exploding from inside ,-out ! lol.
    Hugs,Dorthe

  15. Corrine this is full of your mad and wonderful expression, I can see how you let it all out here, way to go! Keep finding those peaceful moments to let it all go, just what you need!

  16. Thank goodness for paper and pencil to empty one’s head! I have looked like your painting myself recently! …Breathe…my friend xoxo

  17. For some reason I’m fascinated by his mouth……:-D
    Hope you’re managing to get a restful weekend Corrine….sending a hug x

  18. This is what happens when we try to live two lives – our Art life with our blogging friends, and our real life with our real life activities and friends and family. This is a great illustration of how we can feel if we try to do so much – the manic eyes, the mouth (great square mouth), the strip (like a colourful head-ache) across the forehead and the busy, busy background.
