(a Springtime project for the upcoming workshop)
It is a colorful and happy mess.
The sun streams in the sun room windows. Birds are busy outside the kitchen window making my poor cat crazy. Little patches of green are poking through the muddy snow, making my eyes hunt for those bits of neon.
Perhaps it's why my paints exploded in color this spring~ I am so hungry for nature to come alive.
March is always a month of messiness.
A year ago, with Christy Tomlinson, I launched a brand new workshop called "The Art of Wild Abandonment", it literally made a mess of my schedule for the entire year~ new creative ideas, collective projects, new friendships, wild new sketches, and so much goodness. I suppose this workshop is a celebration of that art-sprouting-wonderfulness. Or simply a celebration of God's goodness and love! Messiness in life and art is to be expected ~ birthing and growing is full of colorful chaos, yes and amen?
Would you like to join me? Perhaps you are sprouting this spring as well.
A try at selling art?
Writing 3 pages a day?
Launching a blog, a business, a new idea?

New baby lambs on the way??? (yes!)
I am so excited for you and me ~ May God's passionate joy accompany our paths this spring!
In His hope-filled hands,
