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!

Let Your Heart Sing! in 2017

Greetings! This past year had its own Path for me to follow…I had to be away from the studio most of the time. SO! At the beginning of 2017, I am getting back to work and ReconNecting with YOU 

Some things were accompLished in 2016 though!…BeginnIng and eNding the year by taking arT courses from the wOnderful artIst and Possibilitarian, Kelly Rae Roberts. Here is my first “Angel” painting…

  “Angel of Whispers” reminds me to balance Life’s challenges with Joy…while letting my Heart continue to Sing!

Kelly’s inspiRing courses,  Hello Soul, Hello Mixed-Media Mantras and Spirit Wings, gave me a chance to trY out and eXperiment with many new mediums~~ oil pastels, ink brush pens, and paper collage~~while also TunIng into the Meanings and wHispers of my heart, which presented themselves as I created each painTing!! It pushed me out of the famiLiar and gave me new Ideas to inspire my own Artwork! 

In 2017 come along with me and see where the Path leads…..I had a GreAt beginning to the New year with an adVentuRous Trip in January! [More about that coming soon….!  🙂  ]  As the year continues, my sTudio’s Focus will still be…

Creativity in Art & Life...
