The View From My Art Corner

Finding beauty in the mess.

There are several months of scraps and things scattered around the space where I create.
It was like a path of memories over recent days.
Bits that I'd intended to use in art.
Quotes for art, or reminders for my day, inspirations, help for decisions.

I decided to really look.
To focus.
So I grabbed my focusing tool:  the Nikon.
And started looking.

Sometimes I get so familiar with my surroundings
that I forget why I have it there in the first place.
So, I read and I think and I remember.

Decision cards ~ I made in Life Restoration online class by Melody Ross ~

Neo Colors introduced to me by Junelle Jacobsen and her lovely wild art classes

~ from Jeanne Oliver's class The Journey of Letting Go ~

~ Kelly Rae Roberts print ~ Surrender ~
It reads:
Whatever you may be celebrating or grieving,
may you practice courage every day
and let it nurture your spirit
however weary or uplifted it may be.
There is hope in our celebrations
and strength in our brokenness.
May you embrace your own sweet surrender
with faith and courage along the way.


  1. I TRULY loved seeing your space!! And you are so right...there is so much we can learn!!!

  2. Isn't it funny what we see through the lens that we don't notice with the naked eye? I loved seeing your desk and all that's on it.

    Thank you!
