Painting out the kinks

Replenished my art supplies this weekend, excited to finally get the chance to try out the new watercolor paints, paper and brushes.  After my second attempt to paint, the new items made it feel like a struggle, artwork seemed muddled I was left frustrated.  Maybe its all in my head knowing Im working with new supplies, but I will give it another chance…

start over

Swirl of negative thoughts  beg to be heard

we listen, get swept away and lose out on what matters

playback begins, to attempt to erase the day

Bask in the glow

Don’t allow people to use their darkness to blanket your authentic self

and strip your joy. Let yourself shine so your own path can be illuminated.

Inner garden

Its time to cultivate your inner garden to create space for new growth.

Reach, grow, prosper..

The gift

Our days can be busy and tense, sometimes we need to be still, feel the moment, be open to the wonder that surrounds us.

Reach, grow, bloom within – you are not as invisible as you thought…



Day 30 Cast of Characters

Participating in the art everyday month challenge has been fun and inspiring. Some days I forced myself to make time out of a busy day to create art and it was always worth it. The end result of the challenge, art was created everyday. (minus a few days when  I was sick)

Now on to something new,

to be continued…..


Happy Day

Little Miss O, happy birthday! It has been 10 years since the day we were graced with your beautiful little face with the rosy cheeks. You gave us a gift of love with your presence, excited to finally hold you in our arms.

In these 10 years you have grown and so has your personality! Dear, you are the most caring, loving child with a wonderful sense of humor and an imaginative spirit. You are shy at times but when the choosing strikes you can be bold, vocal with need to have the last word. You are my love and inspire me everyday. You show me how to live in the moment and see the wonder in everything!

Happy 10th Birthday!

Love you to the moon and back……

Day 24





Day 23 Sick bug reins

Unfortunately I was visited by the sick bug again, a relapse. I decided not to spend my Sunday sick in bed but to utilize my time and create art. Allowing myself to putter around my art room all day doing whatever made me feel happy. I was able to finish painting this picture that I started earlier in the week.
