My art and writing are two channels I use to express gratitude for all the goodness in my life.  Being creative requires me to step out of my comfort zone and explore new avenues.  When I write and paint from the heart, everything makes sense.  I am grateful for the opportunity to share my joy with you.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. - Albert Einstein


And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. -Anaïs Nin


All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small, all things wise and wonderful, the lord God made them all.  {Anglican Hymn}

I haven't yet traveled beyond my yard to find inspiration.  Perhaps it is time for a field trip?

Macro photography fascinates me.  There truly is so much more to life than meets the eye!

It is time to stop being camera shy.  It's nice to show up to say hello every now and then!

Next week I hope to make more of an effort to go beyond the comfort of my own home...although I also think I could do an entire series of the flowers on my window sill above the kitchen sink!  I love capturing the light there each morning!

with love until we meet again,


On the Canvas...and other thoughts...
