2013 paintings


This is coming a little late. Here we are, well into January and I'm just now doing a review of 2013. I'm not really good at these reviews of the past year, but decided that if I could do a visual review of my work then it would be more fun. I am also reading Julia Cameron's Walking in this World and Sound of Paper and some of the exercises has you listing things that you are proud that you've done. I am happy that I created about this body of work, but I feel there is so much still inside me anxious to get out. I have work to do. It feels good. This brimming over with inspiration. A new well, so deep…..I am beyond blessed to paint. This journey has brought me closer to God. It's opened up new friendships…real ones. The ones where you get all giddy on the phone or lay talking till the wee hours of the night at an art retreat where you are bunking together. You can't sleep. You are beside yourself with happiness that you found this soul(s) that seems to get excited about the same things you do…..talking about your future…..your family….your fur-babies…..the dreams of traveling west….those. Oh how my eyes have been opened. I feel awake. I feel like ME….finally. And really like MORE me, than ever before.

It all started with that Divinely held Moon over the Pacific.
