Put your ear down close to your soul and listen hard.
Hope you all have enjoyed the holidays.
I spend the time between Christmas and New
Year in reflection. I briefly look back and then move on to the coming year.
This year my focus is on joy. What brings joy
to my life and how can I, in my own small way,
share that joy.
I thought it would be fun to hear from you about
joy. What brings joy to your life?
Have a wonderful, safe New Year.

Autumn is a season of transition. Melancholy sets in for me at this time of year. It's a time for remembering how life is always
changing. I remember years gone-by, loved ones long deceased.
And yet, in the back of my mind, I know there will be Spring.
I have been taking lots of photos this changing season. My hands refuse to cooperate with needle and thread. A shift is taking place
with regard to my artwork also. I have decided to remove color
from my photos, focusing on light and shadow. Winter time is a perfect time for black and white.

Life isn't about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself.
George Bernard Shaw
I choose this quote because creating myself is about my connection with nature. When I was a young, single mother, I knew I would not get the chance to be in my studio 24/7. At that point, I realized that being an artist was much more than studio time. It is a way of life.
My family and I went to Holden Arboretum in Kirtland Ohio to celebrate my birthday. It is a marvelous place. They have a canopy walk which was wide enough for my wheelchair.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!
Thanks for stopping by,

Hello everyone! I haven't posted for quite sometime. I had carpel tunnel surgery and my right hand is just now beginning to function.
With so much time on my hands, no pun intended, I've had to much time to contemplate my life, how I fit in this universe and how would I like to proceed.
I have been questioning my art work and what I want to say, as well as what type of medium. Loving so many mediums makes it difficult to focus.
