The spiral of life… mandalas… circles… they keep appearing as if sending me a message I cannot yet decipher. What messages are coming to you?

“Each persons life is like a mandala, a vast limitless circle. We stand in the center of our circle, and everything we see, hear and think forms the mandala of our life.  – Pema Chodron



Art for Appetizers – And More!

Where have I been? what have I been doing???

I have been painting and it feels good most of the time, except when I loose my way sometimes on what to do next with a painting in progress. I have been doing watercolors, sketches and mandalas in my large studio sketchbook. This is a good thing, especially when I am lost in one of my door paintings, as I am right now. AND I am also working on small paintings as ornaments for the Holiday Show at the Morean Arts Center in St. Petersburg. Strange to be thinking about holiday items when in the middle of hot and humid August, but that’s right where I am right now! and it’s where I need to be if I am going to get things done in time. Plus, I am enjoying the blog feeds I am getting from Nicolas Wilton on process. They help me with my door obstacles and more. What have YOU been up to this summer as it speeds by?
