Crucial Time

Happy Spring!! It is here. The start of new life, Nature is awakening in the northern hemisphere. There are an abundance of birds arriving from migration and enjoying
the seeds.

I am able to witness this event more due to being laid-off. The world is in a crucial time and things are so uncertain. It is overwhelming and scary. It is something most of us have never experienced and reading/watching the news can be informational but also intimidating. I have tried to disconnect from the daily numbers and what we "should" do.

Yesterday I went outside after it rained and just listened. The birds were so interactive and busy with their lives. The buds on the trees are starting to grow and in some places the grass is turning green. Being able to connect with Nature is healing.

Take time to admire Nature, go outside, open a window and listen, observe and breath.

Take care and stay positive!

A Walk Outside

Happy Friday eve!! What beautiful weather we have been having here in Maine. It is time to walk more and reconnect with Nature. This past Winter was mild but life around me was not. 
My connection to Nature is freeing and allows my creativity to flow more "naturally". There are many projects in my studio and each one deserves the best. Especially the pet portraits, which require more attention from the heart.
Taking care of yourself should be on top of everyone's list. I have learned through many struggles to be more aware of what my mind, body and spirit need. All three are essential to create art, if one is weak, the rest will follow. 
Spring is almost here, time for Nature to bloom, time to take it all in. One walk at a time.

 Take care of you...
Stay creative and watch the natural world around you.
