Color Connections


Yesterpost I showed you a black & white photo of a paint doodle and asked for guesses what the 'real' colors are.  I kept you waiting longer than I intended, only cos sometimes the days gallop by and all of a sudden it's much later. So here we are, and here it is!

Reinvention


A few years ago I created a year long project, dedicating each month to a single colour.

Coloring in the squares makes a tranquil meditationy pass-time. Time to … Continue reading red-blue (45/52)

So with my fav … Continue reading New Beginnings

So last night I polished off the first week of my 2015 week by week art journal. Little tweaks and changes.... more emphasis on Trust - I gotta trust in this process, and more focus on the word Focus. Got me thinking about focusing on what this week has meant to me.
