Work in Progress

It’s time to get back to the drawing board and prepare for another art show.   Although we are buried in snow and frigid temperatures right now, I am thinking of the lazy, hazy days of summer and am preparing for the Enchanted Forest Art Show this August.  
John and Marilyn de Lang are the hosts of this show each summer at their studio, Wood’s End. 

Below is a work in progress...

Doodling and Writing

Many mornings I come across some wonderful quotes while I’m writing in my journal, and reading.  This is a practice that I have enjoyed for a number of years, and over time I have a collection of dog-eared, well worn journals.  

It helps to get some perspective, when writing one’s thoughts down on paper.  One of the quotes I came across while reading a while ago was something I created as a doodle in my journal or “morning pages” which expanded into a little drawing.

This is a quote from James Russell Lowell which I found in Cameron’s book The Complete Artist Way (2007).
