Vision Board Art Journaling

Tweet I’ve been working with my friend Jami Y. for the past several weeks to create vision boards for different areas of my life.

It took me over a week to work up the courage to actually play with my new watercolors. This past Sunday for over two hours I played with the colors, tried to paint…

I am in Love

Tweet Lately I have been very distracted – I am in love. But, not in any person. I am in love with several new interests. These new loves invade my thoughts and wrap themselves in and around every idea I have. I see them everywhere and imagine what it would be like for them to…

A Call to Paint

Tweet I first had the call to paint last Fall. I indulged my desire and bought a beginner set of bright acrylic paints and a plain wooden box. I sat outside all day, enjoying the coolness of the shade and primed and painted for hours. I painted on paper, on pieces of plywood and, of…
