Breathe :: Art Journaling

I just wanted to paint.

~Using acrylics
in my journal.

I really do get so caught up
that I forget to breathe. 
Does this ever happen to you?!

Hope your today is beautiful and peaceful.

oh, Summertime...

Though I went to work yesterday for a workshop,
today and tomorrow
I still have summer, I am

journaling softly,

napping happily,


 listening to the Silence,

 and watching my flowers grow.

oh, and watching the Corn Moon, Full Moon.
Hope you caught it too.

Dear August,

You are going quickly, too quickly for me
 but I am grateful for you. 
Allow me to strengthen and prepare for the school year
to come...

and still soak up your light...
for a couple more days...


PS. Thank you so much for your Grama Congrats!!!
Yes, to  bring another sweet Capricorn Girl
into the world is pretty cool...ha!

One Light :: Journaling

Layers of acrylic paint,
my candlelit photo,

not sure.

Hope you are enjoying this Friday!

Free... Journaling

 This page took on a life of its own
and was actually quite freeing for me.

I started with gesso and acrylic paints,
and scraped squares...
which made me think of boxes and being boxed in,
and cages...
and then, in the paint, I saw a flying bird!

Look what happens when I free my mind.

I did this just after meditating.

Art Journaling

Releasing thoughts...

experimenting with art supplies...

and just trying new things...

in my art journal.

Feels good.
Really good.

Sharing :: Soulful Artist Bebe Butler

Hi friends,
Sometimes, when I am just taking a walk
 I have the time to actually just think.
 And this time, when I took my walk,
I thought about my blog friends.

We are not "virtual friends". We form strong
 beautiful, lasting, supportive, real, friendships.
We learn from one another;
we've cried for one another, we inspire one another.
All the time.

 Those that don't get it, don't know about it yet!
C'mon in! The door is open!

I love the sharing
 I firmly believe that we are all connected in this universe.
Spread the love, share the art, spread the positivity, the peace.

I want to introduce you to a friend,
a soulful, beautiful person, and artist 
whom I respect, admire
 and am inspired by: Bebe Butler.

She creates mixed media pieces on wood
 and art prints that are so moving...

Bebe says, "I believe the images you surround yourself with can speak both to who you are, and where you're going..."

Bebe Butler is as true and beautiful as is her art...

I love the way her work flows...
from heart and soul...
the colors
 from a place of warmth and peacefulness.

Breathe in some more beauty and inspiration:

I have included links on the photos,
and here are the paths to Bebe's
 and her gorgeous website.
