About Me

My photo
I am an artist, a wife, a mother, a friend, a deviant and a special education teacher. I say artist first because I cease to be sane if i don't work on my art, seriously, I have to go into therapy... My work is an evolution of my experiences and philosophy. It spans multiple mediums and subjects, most recently focusing on the balance of expression and form. I spend a lot of time on chaos theory and macro/micro theory. The theory of balance and entropy in the universe fuels my inspiration. I love movies and philosophy, sometimes spiraling into deep conversations about both. These are my musings and thoughts, as well as insight into my artistic process and my work View more at: GoldenSpiralDesigns.deviantart.com redbubble.com/people/caitlinpadilla

Change is the only constant

As I sit on my porch, enjoying the little amount of alone time I get, I look out at my yard. There are two shovels jutting out of a mound from a half dug trench. The rusty lines of an archaic sprinkler system lie, exposed, taking a 90 degree turn before disappearing into the dirt again. The orange spray paint has all but faded from where I mapped out our future grass patch. I have to finish digging before Jon goes back to work in as little as a week. Ugh.
