We worked in the journal every day. A meditation in a group and a free write in the journal following. Drawing lines of energy through the body, going on a wander walk, stitching in a crow feather, some chicken colors and collage of wind. Creating a meditation of the new day in our books as […]
Pops of color appearing everywhere are infusing my work. Popsicles and flip flops, beach pails and sand towels, flowers and gardens. Stitching Drawing and painting Pops of color everywhere.
Making random marks in my journal and noticing what happen when I purposefully distort the photo close ups. A whole new world emerges and I “see” differently. A wandering down the rabbit hole in a new direction. A new language of marks.

The painting I was working on is not done, but I was culling older collage pieces to recycle them into new work and SeRenDIpiTY […]
Noticing, noticing. Something I am trying to do more of. Be interested in the details, the minute details of the world I love and live in. Broaden my horizon, gulp more of life, be more aware, be more more. I broke out of The Stuckness on Monday and really made a dent in a couple […]
