I turned one of my unfinished paintings on it's side, because I was not feeling the dark woman standing there.
I've discovered a happier scene. One that has a sunset, tree, and comfortable living space.
I am excited to see where this one goes and if this spurt of inspiration will be contagious.

Since I was a little girl, art, creation, and imagination were always second nature. My mother cultivated a strong sense of creativity in me and my dad, the notion that the 'sky's the limit'.
Today, art is my method for exploration. With every creation, I discover the secrets and answers within me... the only way I know how.
As I search for clarity in my work and life, I work with colored smelly markers and large pads of white paper for mind mapping, spontaneous sketches, brainstorm diagrams, and streams of consciousness.
My latest 'discovery session' resulted in an eye-opening collage. I worked on this piece for about a week, adding new images and markings little by little every day.
When I look at this collage, I am reminded that of my favorite quote by Pablo Picasso: "Everything you can imagine is real". These images represent me, where I've been, where I am, and where I'd like to go.

On the Lake
distant tones muted
the birds fly low
At once, we spin like ice on the sink
slowly, we stop on a new landscape
Green, blue, gray
white, they blend
your hair is brown
your eyes glimmer like the ripples
