Before I Sleep

18" x 24"
Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas

These woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
Robert Frost

I am working through some rough bouts of pregnancy-induced insomnia. The upside of this is that I have been spending a lot of time in the studio, time that I don't have during normal waking hours because most of that is spent chasing after the kids.
This poem by Robert Frost came to mind, because it feels like this whole pregnancy has been quite a long and difficult journey, such a lovely, dark and deep experience. As I am heading into my eighth month I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but even after our son arrives there will be other obstacles to overcome, and miles to go before I sleep.
