New Life

Greetings and welcome to my blog. I'm starting off taking baby steps so please be patient with me. I have been so inspired the last few weeks from so many wonderful and talented artist I decided to jump in and give it a whirl myself. I already have been inspired to clean my studio (I'm still working on this) and get some artwork done.

This being a turning point in my life in so many different areas I felt starting this blog would be like giving birth to a new body of art that I hope will move and inspire all who see it. I came across these wonderful words from St. Augustine of North Africa that describes exactly how I feel at this stage of my life.


When people truly open their minds, and contemplate the way in which the universe is ordered and governed, they are amazed - overwhelmed by a sense of the miraculous. When people contemplate with open minds the germination of a single seed, they are equally overwhelmed - yet numerous babies are born every day, and no-one marvels. If only people opened their minds, they would see that the birth of a baby, in which a new life is created, is a greater miracle than restoring life.

These words are sooo true and sooo beautiful.

I envy all of those just getting back from Artfest but I'm grateful that you are sharing your experience with the rest of us ;) This would have been my 5th year in a row and although I'm a bit bummed I may go to Fiberfest to make up for it. I went to Fiberfest last year and had a great time much slower pace and a more intimate group. However there is nothing like Artfest it truly is a magical experience so unpack those bags, get some shut eye and keep sharing with the rest of us. Well as I learn and get more photos taken, "I promise to blog oh no.......EVERYDAY" we will see how long this last. Thanks for stopping by.
