Caged — A better prompt could not have been selected for this week as this is exactly how I feel as I move closer to going back to work. My vacation has gone too quickly. It’s really been a working vacation with so much going on with my home improvements. Even so I know my creative self will be caged away as I go back to teaching. Yes, I have a great job that does allow for a lot of creative activity on my part, but there isn’t much time for exploring my own artwork. It has to be squeezed into days filled with all the tasks that teachers do. I’m really grateful I’ve found Illustration Friday. It’s be a key that opens the cage door a little.
