Paste, Paper, Paint and A Whole Lot of Gratitude

I admit it, I neglected the 40 Day Creativity Experiment for a few days while doing the studio dust up (which is still not dusted entirely), but no never mind. I definitely made up for it today in the studio before teaching, during teaching and after teaching – one minute turned into four hours.

Today was all about the things that give me the most joy, paste, paper and then some paint. Collage feeds me like nothing else comes close.  It’s what I turn to again and again for joy, exuberance, color, light, a way through darkness, for gratitude that something so humble can be such a gift…to me.  As my friend Kathye would say,”It’s HUGE”.

It’s no surprise that the women who are closest to me in the world influence my work, their very spirits sit at my shoulder always like guardian angels and I move mountains in their energetic presence.  Paste, Paper, Paint and my bundle of Angel girls (Linda, Damini, Kathye, Carolyn, Erica and Victoria). This 40 Day Experiment is turning into an epiphany of gratitude for their love.

    DElightful! All those yummy layers and your collaging shows through everywhere. Lucky you to have such uninterrupted time in the studio…’s fun to get so lost in what you’re doing, isn’t it?
