Peaceful (and Flower-A-Day Update)

Yesterday I finished my flower-a-day for a year “challenge”*! Even though they only took about 10 or 15 minutes each, it feels like a lot of daily creative energy has been freed up for other things. Am considering making an art print or poster as a celebration/memento. Didn’t keep up with the posts about it,Continue reading “Peaceful (and Flower-A-Day Update)”

I Believe in Law of Attraction (Maybe)

Years ago, I took a painting class at School of Visual arts, taught by the fabulous Nancy Chunn. Since it was an advanced class, the format was for each student to “do ones own thing” and then at the end, talk about our creations. At first, I was painting in oils and getting meh resultsContinue reading “I Believe in Law of Attraction (Maybe)”
