the art of spring - updated


In all of the changes I am making this year, I wanted to include some of my favorite projects from last spring.  I hope you will join me in celebrating brand-new-life that comes from God's amazing creation and love. Seeing the beauty that He spills into our daily lives when we live with open and loving hearts.  

It is Spring...   

(a watercolor project for the Art of Spring)

I have been hiding in my studio, I can't help it, it is just what I needed.   

It is the time of year I am most prolific, productive, plenteous, effluent...(I do love juicy words).  
Projects pile up along long counters, bits of paper and paint stick to my sweaters, bright sketches fill 
up my sketchbooks, and calendaring out days of deadlines...  

It is a colorful and happy mess -- a very happy place.


I know in my heart that winter is pulling away.  Snow and ice still hang on my home, my trees, my muddy boots, but I feel the change in the air and it brings new energy and life to my days.  Can you feel it coming?

The sun streams in the sunroom 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 (now two),  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 spring 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 for a new adventure this Spring?  Perhaps you are sprouting for something new, too?

    1. Hello Su~

      So nice to meet you and have you visit me.

      I would have loved for you to take that class. It was a special class. At this time I don't have access to it or the ability to bring it to my own site, I am so sorry. (Sorry for me, too)

      I would love to invite you to any of my other classes that I have on my site right now - Art of Spring, Saturday Mornings, or Wildflowers. All have unique mixed media inspiration and are listed on the left side of my blog (above). I also will be getting two other favorite classes ready for my site this spring - Wild Art 2 & The Art of Goodness. I will send out a newsletter when those last two are uploaded.

      This is a time of great transition for me, thank you for your patience.
