The release

Ideas are most welcome when they appear unannounced. When that creative idea makes a visit I pay attention, because if I ignore the visitor, it will taunt and haunt me all day.

This quick little illustration came about when I participated in the Deepak/Oprah 21 day guided meditation challenge. As I meditated on releasing negativity, an image appeared and stuck with me. I did my best to portray my version of letting go. Holding on to stuff internally, whether anger, negativity, old wounds will keep us chained, hold us back from from a vibrant healthy life.

Open up, let it out and be light.

Reflection in the studio

Feeling a little gratitude today. I realized how much I enjoy the WordPress community of bloggers. So much creativity, inspiration and support.  I want to give a shout out to say thank you to everyone that visited, read my blog, followed and commented.  I enjoy all the connections made! 

A glimpse of my art space where I am preparing a new canvas. I will be sharing my creative process, on Periscope @flufnutter  you can view recent videos. Be forewarned,  I am new at this live video thing so it may take me a few more videos to get comfortable filming. 

Time off for good behavior

Shaking up my day this morning getting out of my little studio to meet up with a friend. It was perfect weather to be out and about today. I headed to a local cafe for a good cup of cafe mocha and to enjoy some engaging conversation. Afterwards I was inspired to create this little doodle.

Recently I have been painting and drawing intuitively, including this art. This little illustration started with some pencil marks on paper resembling leaves which brought forth this image. No photos involved just my imagination.

Placement

Out of the shadow

light draws an appearance

brief inspiration

color vibrates

I see differently today

Placement makes all the difference. As shadows  grew over the art, the light made its presence, it soaked upon my thoughts, sharing in words of inspiration today.

Wild weather exhales inspiration

During our morning routine before school, my daughter asked me to write a poem. My first thought, I don’t have anything to write about. Then other thoughts followed..

I hear…… Unknown to me

the sound echos through the empty house

bang, clank shakes me awake

a ghostly presence of make believe

rooms filled with chatter

I try to muffle the noise

quiet restored

my mind is free

to dance around my thoughts

(mixed media art, pencil, marker and cut paper)

Listening in silence

Tree limbs greet the morning haze

sweet cool air dance along the lines

shared spaces with winged creatures

The wind whips me awake, draws me in

I am aware..

I feel comfort..

I whisper thank you..

The world slips away

I let my imagination run wild and creativity take hold. As a young girl in school I would often drift off to another world, dreaming of imaginary people and places while tuning out the lessons of the day (briefly). Recently I have been fixated on change, imagining something different for myself. So I decided to take a leap, to follow a new path and forge through the unknown. Ready for new adventures.

Go ahead and imagine your own possibilities!
