Where does inspiration come from?

To me this is the great mystery of life.

Creativity seems to be the one constant in my life that cannot be harnessed. Well maybe it can be wrangled in, but truthfully, I've never tried. I just hang around my materials and resources and wait for it to strike.

Like Cupid, you could say.

Actually I tend to think of this little quirk in my life as a gift. It arrives without warning and leaves me with a sense of wonder and a belief in some divine universal force that drives us through each moment of life.

May inspiration strike the depths of your heart today.

We are just a few days away from the Christmas Holidays. I've planned to take some time off and delight in the joy of my jammies and my studio for 11 straight days. Yippee !

Looking towards the new year, hey, did I say that? I've never in my entire life looked towards the new year but for some reason about 30 days or so ago, a switch flipped inside of me and things, life, people, jobs, my body, my work, my art have all shifted.

I'm looking forward to marketing my art. I'm letting go of the things, people, places, events that have been weighing me down. No I've not been in therapy. No I've not changed my drugs. No I've not been widowed or divorced. Something shifted.

I used to say I'm not a morning person. I used to get on the treadmill at night and I hated it, I dreaded it, I actually cried a few times while on the darned thing. One day (quite some time ago) a friend told me he runs early in the morning because then he gets it out of the way, it frees him up to do and think about other things during the day and he doesn't waste so much energy talking himself into running later when he'd rather be doing something else. Well I guess I filed this away somewhere in my brain because for some reason one morning I woke up at 5am, got out of bed and got on the treadmill. Didn't even have to think about it. Me, the 'NOT A MORNING PERSON" has been up and on the treadmill everyday for over a month now. Go figure.

I think the universe is smiling down on me. I think it has been all along but something within me was blocking the glow.

I very rarely post to this blog without also publishing an image. Image person that I am. But somehow today, all the words seemed "just enough".

Have a great day and drop me a line, I love hearing from you.

Scan of a postcard made and sent to my daughter-in-law.
Sorry, it has post office goop on it.

What will 2008 be like for you?
Will you create a cure for horrible disease?
Maybe your love will heal someone's heart.
Or, when you close your eyes you'll hear music and smell flowers.

Well after laboring long and hard the new baby is nearly born !! There is still a bit of tweaking to do but many of my works of art are now up at Etsy.

Keep checking back, I'm on a pretty fast learning curve here ! Whew! Can you feel the wind rushing through your hair !

12 x 12 acrylic on 2" gallery wrap canvas w/found crown and beads
$125 + shipping

Just once in a blue moon
will you ever meet a
bird like this ?


He's had a few too many holiday treats and with that crown it is evident he has an ego to match his bottom !!

Buster joins me in thanking everyone who stopped to comment on my little melt-down last week about being "cute". You know, I've decided my art is what it is and if someone thinks it is cute then more power to them. Art is something that only the viewer can assign meaning too. Either you like it or you don't, you think it is cute or gross or bland.

I tend to think that what you think of me is none of my business and on a personal level that is really quite true. I am who I am and so be it ~ the same goes for my art. Even if it does bring up scary stuff from time to time.

I am grateful for each and every comment I recieve no matter what the content. Your honest comments are what allow me to grow.

Jeez, isn't life great ??? !!!!
