Out of the comfort zone! Way out …

Everything is going on on our kitchen desk.

Everything is happening on and around our kitchen desk.

As some of you know I am taking this painting class Get Your Paint On with Mati and Lisa. On the course we were suggested that it’s good to leave your comfort zone. This is the way the learning begins.And man – I’m learning a lot these days. I was thinking about this comfort zone. First of all I have to say that my kitchen table is getting way to small for all the projects I want to finish, for home assignments for the class … and yes … for the family or solo meals. My kitchen table equals not a comfort zone. At all :)! I also feel a little bit spinning here. Like in the whirl or something like that. Want to do sooo much, have so much ideas, so little time and I am really trying to conquer new techniques and combine them with my style … My etsy shop is not opened yet, no love letter to licensees were send, no collection is finished.  Not to mention that I made really big, big decision. I don’t want to return to my job as a journalist when maternity leave is over. I decided that I am taking me seriously together with my art. Am I scared? Omg, to death!!! No, no comfort zone for me here either 🙂 But very excited of the process of learning.

And my family? I guess they are out of their comfort zone too. With very small apartment for all the activities going on here (we both work at home). And with wife and mother who is madly trying to find a balance between family and starting up a business which would actually help us to survive and get us to a decent place to live and work (I desperately need a studio).  Yes, I am way out of my comfort zone. Even in my paintings.

P.S. Today Sofija is exactly 3 months old. Bravissimo!

    Petra ~ I absolutely love your blog. It makes me smile out loud every time!

    You made the big decision – congratulations!! You have so much talent.

    You might consider doing your own e-commerce thing instead of etsy.
