TRUST! just trust, stand still , listen

She was in love with a bird ( The Holy Sprit) TRUSTthat always told her the truth whether she wanted to hear it or not, at least it was always told to her in song!

TRUST! DO NOT MOVE! My very own lesson in trying to not make things happen but allowing God to move...and having the courage to await the was all good!

new girl in the works

Seem to still be attracted to the blue green shades, birds and butterflies. Oh well I am just going to go with the flow. My first step was to just glue it all down- lots of paper scraps on my desk as you can see on the next photo- spatter on acrylic paint and spray some dye inks-then take my stabilo black pencil and sketch in her face..
Step one-you have to be brave and cover up some of your pretty colors or ephemera ...BRAVELY PAINT...

View from my seat...outside it is raining. The weather was supposed to be 60s.

What is my why?

A question that was posed in a gallery talk and demo by the amazing artist Jeanne Bessette, and now I have to take the time to think on it- work it out- and ponder it. What is my why...why am I doing what I do, why am I so hard on myself,  why do I have to create, why do it, why do I love it, and why not....hmmmmm. I do know I love to sit and think and what better place then on a sheep,cow,rabbit etc chair!
