Overwhelmed at the Moment!

Like is a bit crazy here right now.  I'm thrilled but I'm a bit overwhelmed.  I'm thrilled that I'm going to be showing my paintings in an exhibit in Milwaukee but I'm overwhelmed that I need 10-20 of them by Halloween.  You'd think that wouldn't be a problem, right?  I have tons of paintings completed, right?  Well, this show is a mini's exhibit.  All under 8x8 inches.  I have nothing under 8x8 inches.  I'm not going to turn down this opportunity, but wow, this is not how I'm used to creating I guess. 

I have three done and am working on five more right now.  I ordered ten more 6x6 canvases from Dick Blick and they should be here within a few days (I hope).  This is a picture of an 8x8 I've done, which is the smallest I've completed.  I included it because it is one of my dreams to show my work in an exhibit and that dream is slowly coming true!

If anyone has any advice on dealing with creating art under pressure, I'd love to hear it.  Please!!! 

I do have a few more artist interviews coming soon, so please stop back and check for those too!


  1. I have no doubt you'll get them done :) Keep at it, have fun and enjoy the process... and congratulations, what a great opportunity! x

  2. Thanks! I"m a bit anxious but it is a great opportunity.


  3. HI Jill, Congrats on this wonderful opportunity. I saw some of your paintings on the flyers site and the ones you have done so far look lovely!! I am sure you will get them all done and that they will all look fantastic. Good luck and have fun...!!! WIni xo
