Random glimpses into the thoughts of a woman- searching for life's answers - or maybe just asking the questions and living them. Trying to live creatively and authentically. Learning to BE - HERE - NOW.
It has been a busy few weeks. Quick trip to the North Carolina mountains to see some snow. I miss the mountains so much. We had a great time in Asheville. I'm trying to sketch more. My daughters have an innate ability to sketch. Me, not so much. I am trying tho'! This is my attempts at birds. Needs work, but I am seeing progress I took the time to experience Jamie Ridler's Soul Reflections workshop. It was amazing! I hope to write about that in my next post.
What is it about the New Year? Step into Target or Walmart and you see all these containers to organize your life. Hard to resist!! I have the urge each year to start the new year with my house organized and ready to begin fresh. I sort and clean. I rearrange. I shred all the paperwork I don't need to keep.
This year I am shredding old habits and ways of thinking along with that paperwork. My intentions is to explore more, experience more, and definitely LAUGH more. I'm looking for JOY - LOVE - LAUGHTER and COLOR in my life. I'm excited about my artistic adventures. I've learned so much the past year. I love the process of learning and experimenting with COLOR. I love to just put down layers of paint and see what I like. To play with different textures and papers. To make a mess of my art area and create something from within. I want to keep on painting faces and get better at it. I want to experiment more with cards and tags. I want to create all year!
I want to continue this adventure with blogging. Your kind comments mean so much. Each comment makes me smile and think that somewhere out there is someone else who is exploring and enjoying life and color. I started this blog hoping to feel a bit more connected. And that is just what I have found. Wonderful, kind, creative women! Thank you!
