…and, she is done.

Standard

Starting with a blank sheet of paper, sketching out an idea, and bringing that idea to life on a canvas is such a great experience, for me.
I always start with a definite idea (with my initial sketch) but, once I start adding colors, textures, swirls and strokes, I just let my mind go where it wants to go.  Totally unplanned.  So, in a way, it’s always a surprise to me (my art), once it’s finished.  Each of my little ladies takes on her own unique expression and life. It’s like I’ve created a new friend each time I finish one.
Happy Thursday, everybody!

“I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.”
~Henry David Thoreau

…the start of something new….

ordinary concepts and to substitute them
with new truths that run down from the top of the head
and out of the heart.” ― Charles Bukowski

Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens

I attended the annual Steeplechase event, on Saturday. Met a lot of new folks/made some new friends, and drank a little bit of free wine. Had a good day! Sales weren’t what I was hoping for but, the company more than made up for that. xo

Giddy up!
