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.

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.
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.
Cookie cat was patiently waiting for my return.

Are you falling, caught, uplifted, or maybe swinging around having fun? I would love to know what you perceive from the illustration? Feel free to comment, whatever comes to mind.

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.

Out of the shadow
light draws an appearance
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.

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
my mind is free
to dance around my thoughts
(mixed media art, pencil, marker and cut paper)

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..

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!
