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!

~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!

Catching Up…As Summer Ends!

As Summer comes to an end…Students and teachers are returning to school, and our days in the Southwestern mountains of Virginia are growing cooler!

IMG_20190727_170240It’s hard for me to believe that September is just around the corner! Signs of Autumn are beginning to appear in the leaves of the trees, as hints of red, yellow, and orange are peeking out from the sea of green!!

 I am Finally back in the Studio after traveling and spending time doing special things on long Summer days. This change of pace gave me new inspirations new motivation… & new ideas for creating Art!

Everywhere you are….
