thoughts about creativity and  art:   live your life as your work of art.

Restarting the studio for new work!

mom As I clear off the desk I review my inner spirit! I am invigorated by the dialogue that began to occur around my work at my opening reception (see previous post) last Thursday. Although the concept of organizing time and pacing oneself  by the structure of the  hours of the day in prayer is a simple one, it reverberates deeply in my soul. Sometimes as I travel through my day, I neglect the inner awareness that needs nurturing on a regular basis.

Speaking of traveling, check out Casey Toussaint, who literally documents her travels while doing "everyday drawing & painting".

So I reflect on a quote from a website I find inspirational, by Lisa Bowman. This a is a site worth checking out!

Wisdom in knowing what to do next. Skill is knowing how to do it. Virtue is doing it.

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) Third President of the United States
