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!

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…
