We Slumber Beneath Soft Moons
It is tempting to begin the new painting year with a plan. With a goal. With a genre. With an organized approach. But that would be the way I started each new year in the past. Time for something new. A random, willy-nilly love-fest with the muse and her (his?) secretive and mischievous ways. To trust, as Byrne says, that I happily don't know what I'm doing.
And maybe we don't have to know what we're doing after all. So much of the good stuff in life is unexpected - happenstance and random shiny things that grab our attention and divert us from the known path. Because maybe the known path isn't really the right creative path for us in the first place. Let's diverge, shall we? Grab my hand and let's go!

Dotty! Woot! Derring do is what we do, right?

What a wonderful little creature emerged. Thanks for sticking with it.

Carl! Thank you! And it always amazes me how you can be so productive and organized and YET be so inspired every day. You are a great example for the rest of us!

Carol! We all need a slumber cat...:) This will be the second workshop I've taken with Jesse Reno. His process informed my early work, and I simply cannot wait to see what it does for me now!
