I had a vision of long hair
a woman resting against the back of a bird
the pencils guided me
over a couple of days 
this piece evolved

to enjoy other artists 
and their paintings

Fungi and Honeycomb

in his mushroom cap
he stored wisdom
collected from far and near

this faery man
stood with ease
and compassion
one of wisdom's gift

I bought this ink pen here: Tee's favorite dip pen
i LOVE it!

Lavender and Lilac, Spring Inspired

spirits of earth and air
let us dance
with gloreous flare
ethereal we share as kin
breathe dance laugh
and spin


recently I was thrilled to win a copy of Seth Apter's recent book:
Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed

this book overflows with questions to the artists
about how they feel about their art:

where do you find you inspiration
what emotions show up in your art work
what expresses the inner most you
and so on the questions continue
 the book overflows with wonderful art!

I love learning about artists

Thank you Seth for the gift of your book!


I am sharing this with Sofia's Sunday Sketches

Lovely Sunday to you all!

Spring Deer

visiting Karen Ruane's blog: Contemporary Embroidery

I enjoyed how Karen mixed stitching on paper with her cloth fibre stitching

so I thought to give it a try
stitching and watercolors on handmade Khadi paper from India

treat yourself to a leisurely visit at Karen's blog
or even sign up for her amazing class!
Her students are creating awesome pieces!
these last few months i have enjoyed using 
DoTerra high quality organic essential oils.

I am enjoying DoTerra fennel essential oil right now. 
one drop in a glass of water,
quite refreshing!

Used for centuries for its many health benefits, Fennel essential oil has pronounced antioxidant properties and is considered a tonic. It is often used to relieve indigestion (supporting the healthy functions of the stomach), to aid in any kind of digestive issue and to support improvements to the lymphatic system. Fennel's sweet yet spicy aroma is balancing and has familiar licorice notes.

I love the taste of it!

If you are interested in learning more
or trying it yourself
you can visit my DoTerra store.
