A Pause

I’ve been away, enjoying the proximity to my son and daughter and celebrating milestone events with them. This has been a time to recalibrate, to reflect, to refresh. Though I have put away my brush and paints, I’ve been collecting visual memories to recreate in watercolor.

As I prepared food and activities for Thanksgiving, I also prepared with quiet meditation-Grateful for all the tangible and especially intangibles that are my life.

We were blessed by the natural beauty of our surroundings. Sunrises, sunsets, crisp air, fall leaves and family.

I couldn’t resist trying my hand at sketching a Magnolia Tree seed pod that may become a winter greeting card.

A time of peace and comfort that yielded a memorable and joyful time with our expanding family. Happy Thanksgiving

After a diverse career in Corporate America, I am freeing myself of a ton of ego traps; chief among them is "perfectionism." Watercolor, when left to its own devices and imperfections seems to create something more beautiful than intended. I am still a student and love the learning journey. Sharing that with friends and family in the form of greeting cards, has been a surprise filled with joy.
