How do readers?? are ya enjoying winter in whatever form it is visiting you....I am happy with the sprinwinter(spring,winter) this year how grateful i am that being here this year that last years winter didn't repeat..yahoo!!! i continue to yearn for blue skies,humid air and sunshine..however writing that i am happy to be where i am today as an artist in residence.
Today is my six months that i began this adventure...so as of March 1st i have four months to complete my body of work!!! Yikes.i am border line overwhelm and hysteria especially when i look at the big picture..Stay with me here for a minute while i BREATHE! its full moon today
This is a month when new life is beginning, but still lies dormant. Pregnant animals, due in the spring, begin to feel the quickening of their unborn young. The earth itself is quickening, as seeds and bulbs far beneath the soil begin their journey towards the light. We know these things are coming -- and we know also that this is a good month to make plans for the future. We can dream and hope, and set goals for ourselves. Accept responsibility for mistakes you've made in the past, and move on. Magical workings this month should focus on personal achievements and advancement.
Progress is perking away in the studio,i have had to stop with bringing any new creative ideas aboard as my creative hands runneth over....
The title is fitting of my past week....Casa De Sanctuary/Studio was full up with guests coming and going...the truly kewl factor is they are all are artists..yep yep..
Monday: Krystin from Mission came for a play time in the studio...as usual we chattered and created...Krystin has worked her artistic magic on invitations for my show in July...I'll share a sneak peek soon. Take a stroll over to Krystin's blog to see more of her art.
Tuesday: Violette from White Rock also came for a play time but we ended up talking and brainstorming which is a bonus as it helped me push through some blocks i was having with some of my pieces.. u know the drill stroll on over, i love her work.
if u scroll down a day or two u will read Violette's thoughts on her visit to Casa De Sanctuary. The title of the entry violette wrote is called "Assemblage Heaven"
