Renewed

I’m trying to keep this post text-lite post because I’m working through a bout of pretty bad carpal tunnel/arm anger, but everything is great so i wanted to share. [and i still have too much to say! sorry, wrist.]

There is a chorus to this post – sing along if you like. 🙂

one of my favourite pages from An Illustrated Life, by Penelope Dullaghan

The two quotations I love above are:

God dwells within you, as you. Exactly as you are… To know god you only need to renounce one thing – your sense of division from god. Otherwise, just stay as you were made, within your natural character.

-Elizabeth Gilbert(!!), from Eat, Pray, Love.

and

If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living.

-Joseph Campbell, from The Power of Myth

  • A new medium and a new habit: water colours & art journalling: what a break through!

birthday lilies and a geometric dinner

things that made me happy on my birthday

  • A new project: self portraits: what a break through!

feeling conspicuously disconnected

on my walk i found a mirror

  • A new love: Noro yarn: delighting in the joy and indulgence of gorgeous colour: planning a cool project with it: yeah yeah yeah!

Silk garden love

  • A new age: a new perspective: what a break through!

Loving my work and feeling it is emerging true and easily, seeing and feeling things to paint everywhere, constantly. It’s been a long time coming.

What a break through! Whee!

  5. […] last year around this time was when I began dabbling in watercolour. I can hardly believe that it was only one year ago. It feels like… a lifetime ago. Yes, […]
