To Share or not to share?

I have not been sharing lately. My art, that is.
I spent december scrambling to finish Christmas presents.. including a first draft of a children’s book (for adults?)… and January Renovating the basement, and redecorating upstairs..
There was a point where I thought last month that maybe I didn’t want to share the things I make and do, especially the process.. I started to become overprotective, and secretive..
But I have come to realize that sharing is a part of the process now too. Artists need to share their creativity.. The process as well as the results… it makes me happy to see my creations in the virtual world.

So I am doing a little tiny drawing tonight… a little sneak peak.

Adding in colour. & being Thankful.

A little more work. & being Thankful.

I love long weekends. It’s enough time to be lazy and productive.
Feeling thankful for this extra time to work on my art—and clean the house (I even clean and organized my kitchen cupboards), spending lazy time napping on the couch, baking, family, reacquainting myself to tea time, cuddling with my dogs, appreciating fall colours, my handsome man (who drew and painted too for the first time in a long time!). 🙂

At home with art.

Paintings have a way of making a house feel “home-y.” Art can be a starting point for colour in your home, or a way to tie it all together.
