Art restores

Wow. Busy day. Traveled 2 1/2 hours to Buffalo to attend an all-day work-related conference.  It was great, but filled my head with more things I want to do before Labor Day arrives and I start my 28th year of teaching.  Then, when I got home, I had to create a unit plan for a workshop I am attending tomorrow morning.  I had pretty much decided that art, not to even mention blogging, were not gonna happen today.  But, by 10 pm I had finished the unit plan, and I suddenly had the energy to do something I have been wanting to do for a couple of days now - I sat down and started revising (is that what you call it when you return to a piece of art that you thought you had finished?) the first drawing I did for Face2Face.  I was so smitten with myself over that drawing when I first finished it.  But, of course, after I drew the 2nd one, the first one didn't look so good anymore.  Now I'm much happier with it.  And I'm energized!  Creating art really does restore me - my body is still tired, but my spirit feels so much lighter than it has all day!
