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….

The smell,..the taste…the warmth…helps awaken the senses and inspirations!! And, having the cup “match” the color scheme doesn’t hurt either!  🙂

~Happy Tuesday, From the Studio~

Beneath the Surface…

Sometimes on gray, Winter days, the idea of Spring feels very faraway…And then, during a walk last week on a warm, sunny day, I stumbled onto this “pop of color“!

Beneath the Surface

A wonderful, unexpected surprise!! So Nature provided a sneak peak of the colorful displays that are being planned beneath the surface!! I’m reminded that in Life, though I may not love the “Winter times“, perhaps they are necessary, in order to have the time for preparation, inspirations, and finally renewal…

So, this week is off to a good start here in the studio….with a burst of encouragement…knowing that tomorrow another ice storm is headed our way…but more confident that Spring is just under the surface and for me to just continue in the same manner~~here in the studio & in my Life!  🙂

*Does your inspiration vary in the Winter time, or change with the seasons? What have you found that helps you continue with your art, work, or Life’s creative activities during these times?
