may this dress remind us to be mindful in all that we do . . .


Wash the dishes relaxingly, 
as though each bowl is an object of contemplation. 
Consider each bowl as sacred. 
Follow your breath to prevent your mind from straying. 
Do not try to hurry to get the job over with. 
Consider washing the dishes the most important thing in life.
- Thich Nhat Hanh

may this article help us to embrace our messiness (guilt-free) !!!! xxx

“If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, 
of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?”
Albert Einstein

cluttered desk, or studio, or house?!?!?!? 
Today a dear friend shared with me Elite Daily's article,
The Psychology Behind Messy Rooms: 
Why The Most Creative People 
Flourish In Clutter
and it has just made my day, week, month . . . . 
I especially like the reference to the idea that cleaning up could have
 a negative effect on one's creativity!!! 
"By curbing your sloppy desk, room or tendencies, – keep in mind – you might also be curbing your overall creative tendencies."
woohoo!!! that's a relief!!!
now I can draw instead of clean guilt-free!!! xxx

May this dress bring us more courage . . . .

There's something which impels us to show our inner souls. 
The more courageous we are, 
the more we succeed in explaining what we know.

another classes dress project story:
my baby is getting braces today so she wanted some to-be 'verboten' candy - her favorite flavor is watermelon so we were counting how many she got in her variety pack and once I saw al the different piles of colors I knew what I needed to do . . . ‪#‎makeadress‬

may this dress remind us of the wonders of winter . . . . (and there are some!)

'prints . . . ' #decemberdressseries
How beautiful the white field is in its blur of falling snow,
with the delicate black pencil strokes of 
trees and bushes seen through it! 
And, of course,the silence,
 the snow silence, 
becomes hypnotic if one stops to listen.  
  May Sarton

what seems possible or reasonable, 
you disconnect yourself from 
what you truly want,
 and all that is left is compromise.”

Flower, fresh.

today, may we have faith is the process . . . .


Above all, trust in the slow work of God.
We are quite naturally impatient in everything
to reach the end without delay.
We should like to skip the intermediate stages.
We are impatient of being on the way to something
unknown, something new.
And yet it is the law of all progress
that it is made by passing through
some stages of instability—
and that it may take a very long time.
- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


a perfect quote for me, 
as I am determined to finish
this mural, ASAP ~ 
a tree of life for the 

I am so loving painting/creating this tree 
but it needs to be done!!!
and my process for these paintings
 is thoroughly organic, intuitive, 
so it is very hard to finish . . .
