A year ago at this time I participated in my first art drop, randomly placing small works of my art around the city to be found. I had so much fun with the art drop last time, I decided to do another one. On my birthday, carrying 4 small paintings, I scampered around the city of Philadelphia, leaving my art behind.. This day I felt like a tourist in my own city.
Places I visited:
Schuylkill River Trail, Boat House Row , Edgar Allen Poe House
If you ever plan to visit Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, here is some fun information about things to do in the city.

Thanks for visiting!!
The power to truly listen to that which wants to come through you can be a tough thing to accomplish. Life happens, distractions occur but finding a quiet spot to sit and let your mind wander works wonders…. When words find you in that space where your mind fades, magic happens. Sometimes we just need to get out of our own way.
Writing my morning pages brought forth this intuitive sketch..
Thank you for stopping by to view my work and videos..
Every so often I like to change things up and create abstract art. I like the freedom and exploration of the process. The past few weeks I have been working on two mixed media paintings simultaneously. Working on these paintings felt like a tug of war, a love hate relationship, a labor of love with lots of juicy layers.

Oh hello darling, so lovely to see your face…
So it happens, that feeling, that mood which hijacks your body and clips your wings. Don’t dare fight it, just brush it off, keep moving and you will fly again.

This face swap feels a little sketchy to me. Having a little fun swapping faces with my drawings.
Happy Friday the 13th…
Do the things that bring you joy and fills your soul. Create your moments!
This image and the words were on my mind for days, I decided to draw it out and let it flow onto the page.

Sometimes it feels like you are deep in a frilly mess but then you realize you can change it! If the zipper sticks just grab the scissors!

Oh I wanted to put this book back on the shelf as soon as I picked it up. It scared me to even consider this daily challenge but felt the need to give it a try. Most days I try to live a non boring existence but some days I need an extra push.
Some of the things that scare me:
making this list!
me in front of a camera (on video extra scary)
showing my art
speaking in front of an audience
meeting new people
dancing (when someone is watching)
I could go on, but I won’t! 😬
