A month filled with ART


It always takes me a little while to get back in the swing of things when I've been out of town. Especially where the computer is concerned with clearing out emails and catching up with the blogs. I brought my laptop with me this time, but with the art show, I never quite found the time to get on. I think it's nice to take a break from it once in a while, if only to prove to myself that I am NOT addicted to Facebook!

November flew by, didn't it?  This mermie was part of my committment to Art Every Day Month. I have a few other things to post including my Empathy Monster when I get pics taken. This painting sold at the show and I shipped her off to Ohio yesterday. I may have missed a couple of days in the month, but I can assure you that on the days that I didn't actually pick up a paintbrush or pencil, that I was thinking about it!  Doing art every day has fueled my desire to....do art every day!  Magic.

Also, today is Wishcasting Wednesday!  For anyone who'd like to participate in the this fun and inspiring wishing process, check out Jamie Ridler's blog.  Today, she asks the question, "Where Do You Wish to Go Slow?"

This is easy for me and kinda goes along with my wish from last week...I wish to go slow in everything!  I'm a turtle person and I believe the slow way is best. Sometimes I forget this, with being the Managing Mommy in Residence. I am trying to cultivate a way that I will be able to get done what I need to get done and foster calmness at the same time. I know it can be done, and I know a lot of it has to do with Time Management!  So I will keep revising and refining my process, and I think I'm going to create a little sign that reads.....Slow and steady wins the race!  Don't ya just love that tortoise? 

Go out and Be Kind!  Lovebeams all Around!

  3. I love your mermaid! "Let your light shine" is the idea I've been working with for most of the year now. I even bought myself a purse and had the word "shine" embroidered on the side as a reminder.

    I like that you identified your turtle spirit and are working on ways to honor that. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

  4. Beautiful... and yes, November flew by WAYYYYY too quickly for me, which is one of the reasons this wish cast is so perfect. In fact, I am listening to a Carol of the Bells which is WAYYY too fast for me.... and it is making me turn it off... now.

    :-)

    THANK YOU for sharing your Mermie!

    As Shari so wishes, I wish for her also!! With oodles of love...

  10. Your mermie is beautiful. Hmmm...slowness, I really don't go at the speed, everything always seems to be in a rush. I may need to foster a little turtle pace this month, just so it doesn't go by so fast.

  13. Love that your Mermaiden has a paintbrush in her hand! I have been struggling with the Turtle idea these past few days.. especially when the world wants a Hare. I feel Art is served best by being present in the moment. My art does take time, at least it does right now! Thank you for your post and I am so glad you're back - but glad you had such a recharging time back at the ocean waves!....
