Tight Rope Walker - Circus Series

I created the Tight Rope Walker not too long after the Juggler. It is part of my Circus series. I am trying to create them with more of a vintage feel~ I have another one done and can't wait to share it with you. The next circus painting might be my favorite so far. And prior to my spark of creativity fizzling out I managed to sketch out a rough draft for a new one. This week has been a challenge for me, whether it is the end of summer blues or just the settling back to a routine from seeing all my lovely family whom I miss dearly. I have felt a little off track. I think it's very interesting that I came to posting my Tight Rope Walker today as she seems to be challenged by juggling too many things while on the high wire. I can relate to trying to balance on a high wire, but it is balancing life for me and my feelings~ Does that ever happen to you? What things do you do to get your mind to slow down and keep your feelings in check? Does it ever affect your creativity? What do you do to re-spark your creativity when you begin to feel down?
I would love to hear your thoughts~
Today with a slow start and feeling a bit like the Tight Rope Walker I will walk that fine line, keep my head up, feelings in check and look for my spark.
The word "happiness" would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.--Carl Jung
