I've been thinking about going to the sea a lot lately. Maybe it's the heat, maybe it's just that summer vacations are just around the corner, I can't take the idea out of my mind.
But going to the beach is not an option right now, so instead, I'm painting with the sea as a theme.
I have many sea related sketches and I've managed to paint 2 mermaids so far (between my daughter's party and the daily activities, I'm not left with much time to work lately).
One of the mermaids has a boat. She dreams of traveling other seas, to never settle in one place. The other has a home. She wishes she never has to leave. That's the duality I'm living right now. One part of me wishes I could travel places and live the life of a gypsy. Take my children with me and home school them and travel and work from wherever I am. The other wishes to find a place I can call home that I don't want to leave and settle there and create a little paradise of my own.
Am I the only one struggling with that or does that happen to you too?
