Nature’s Messages

When I began writing this blog post, the challenges of the coronavirus had not begun here…so now it has even more meaning!

If you’ve followed my blog, you know its focus has been on “Using Creativity in Everyday Life“. At no other time in my life has flexibility, creative solutions, and novel ways of doing things been so quickly necessary for all people, collectively, worldwide.

I hope this post will offer some encouragement to everyone’s day…

This time of year, when I’m tired of gray winter days (or “stay at home” guidelines!)…during this time of great change…it seems that Nature begins giving hints of brighter days ahead!

The first peek of flowers…

Renewal

A pop of amazing color when I glance out my studio window…

Hope

Reminders of Change and Transition….

Winter? or Spring?

And Signs of Renewal, Hope & Possibilities.

Amazing Color!

May all of you Take Care & Be Well!

Back in the Studio~In 2020!

HAPPY NEW YEAR’s!

It’s amazing to believe, not only a New Year, but a new Decade has begun! And, with it comes new goals, dreams, and activities to strive for in the Studio…

A big Thank-you to everyone who ordered Art, Prints & Cards during the Holiday season! 🙂 Artists everywhere appreciate being supported in that way!

Sets of Cards…

Currently in the Studio, besides doing Inventory and other administrative activities, January began with me completing the printing of some Art Card orders….

And, enjoying the quiet of the studio to hand-roll the edges of this beautiful Italian Silk Scarf! More about that soon! 🙂

I’m also in the imagining stage of the next Visions of Spain piece…

Planning time to continue work on the Child’s Play piece on the cutting table…

And piecing the background of the Sea Images piece!

So, time to get back to work!! …Huummm, maybe more***** snow****would help!? 🙂

~Sights of the Season~

I am enjoying a slower pace after the Thanksgiving Holidays…..The days have turned cold and Winter has settled in here in the mountains of Virginia.

As the red bows are being put in place for the holidays, the color brightens the gray days of Wintertime…

Welcome Home for the Holidays!

And all around the sights of Christmas and the Holiday Season are popping up everywhere!

Community Lights!
