Hello

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.

The purple dress

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!

 

 

 

Sometimes I don’t know who or what will appear when my pencil touches the page but characters are always welcome.    Song: Eet by Regina Spektor 

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)

Let the fun begin

The smaller side of life

 

The stupid moments of the day you wish you can just erase. Maybe hide,  or submerge oneself entirely in a glass of wine, unlikely…….                                  Instead I will try and draw myself there..

Pressures of the day can be demanding. Oh I will shrink myself down, down, down not because of fear, but to be one with nature, one with the leaves, grass, and flowers. I will submerge in the surroundings and be one with myself.  Peace is restored.

Doodle: Pen & colored pencil on paper

Transform

Days shift to nights

we try to hide

we blanket our fears

we are exposed

we wake

we begin to see clearly

The page is my friend

I try to uphold to a morning routine by carving out time for myself before the hectic throws of the day. My commitment to writing three long hand pages (morning pages) began many years ago when I read the book, The Artist Way, by Julia Cameron. The routine of writing everyday clears the mind, relieves stress and allows you to tap into your well of creativity on a regular basis.  My writing this morning inspired this doodle.

Creativity is electric

Live it, create it, draw it, paint it, perform it, design it, write it out

and stay true to self.
