Celebration of New Life

Ah, SpriNg! It is imPossible for me to Not be exciTed by the First viBrant coLors of SpRing!

And for arTists and cReaTives, it hardly ever gets any bEtter than This!!

Here in the Southwest Virginia mountains it comes a bit later than some other places in the South, so I impatiently watch for the first signs of life after a long, cold winter…

Early Spring Color!

The early daffodils herald the awaKening, which happens as the sun gradually warms the earth…It gives Hope and enCouragement that the gray, coldness of Winter will soon vaNish.

Joyful Daffodils!

A large maple tree in our yard still shows No sign of new life…even though tiny lacy green new leaves are peaking out on most of the others. But, this tree is still sleeping and dormant….reminding me to be paTient and Wait….until the Timing is right and it is Ready!  (Hard for me to do. How about you?)

The newness of Spring’s colors against a grayer background reminds me to think in more Positive, liFe Affirming ways. 

Vibrant Visuals!

For example, in April is the deadline for filing yearly taxes in the US. Perhaps it would be better to think of this type of thing as an Aliveline instead! Because deadlines can actually be moTivators, proMote our Action, and urge us to Take stePs in a forWard moTion, after our Winter time of soLitude and Dormancy!  🙂

Hope! & Renewal….

A Pot of Joyfulness!

And upon closer inspection…..

More Wonderfulness!!!!

Wonderfulness!

A Celebration of Living!

Bits of “News” & Inspiration!

We are in the middle of winter here in the mountains with a foot of new snow on the ground and sub-zero temperatures! Like much of the U.S., this is not our typical weather even for this time of year. So I am hibernating and in the studio a lot is getting done! 🙂

I’d like you to know about the new Facebook Page for the studio, which will be used to give glimpses of works-in-progress, bits of studio news, and even alert people to new blog posts! Be sure to check it out at Joni Beach on Facebook!

I will end by sharing some new inspiration that was recently gathered….Hope your day is filled with some new wonders!
