What We Need to Know

For my birthday back in July, I asked my friends to give me their favorite quote as their gift.  I went back and looked at all of them and found this one that my dear friend, Leone Webster, gave to me. I think this quote is so wise and so true. I had never heard of Pema Chodron and this quote inspired me to get some of her books. Thank you, Leone!  


Art & Soul, Virginia Beach

I just got back from Art and Soul in Virginia Beach.  I had a fantastic time and saw some great friends and made some new ones.  I took Big Fat Art with Jane Davies on Thursday and it was a really great class.  We did a lot of exercises on big paper that loosened us up and got us to work intuitively.  


On Friday I took Song of the Sea from Gina Armfield where we learned how to draw and watercolor sea shells.  It was really fun!


Here are some photos...




Saturday was Vendor Night, where people sell their art.  I sold posters, postcards and stickers of my journal pages.  It went really well, thanks to Michelle Tompkins' amazing promotional skills!  


Stay tuned for these items for sale on my website!



And my friend Jessica Herman Goodson sold her amazing art. So fun to be together!


Hope your day is filled with satisfying creative endeavors!
