New Beginnings

A year of letting go, grief, and loss...Preparing for new...a new year...a new home in Denver...Joyful return to my art, MYSELF, and my blog!...slowly rebuilding...
Small Mandalas kept me connected to my art and to my soul during the turmoil...

So happy to begin the reconnection process and to have a new home...in a new city! I lost everything I owned six months ago...including my clothes, my furniture, my bed, my art supplies...I still have what is most important...my soul, my animals, and my friends. I learned a lot in this transition. Life is not about "things." It IS about art though!!! I feel the spark of creativity igniting once again deep in my soul. I am curious to see what will be revealed next...I sense a Phoenix rising from the ashes...(Interesting that one of my last creations was "My Homeless Self." I think I'll be making a lovely, joyful "Home" as my first project this year!!!)

I just recently started reading your blog so don't know what caused all the changes. I do know change is painful but once you get to the other side things are always so much better than you ever imagined! Many best wishes and prayers for you as you inspire all who see your creations.

OMGosh! I have missed you! Really. I knew something was going on because you were away to long. I was hoping it was something good. But remember me! I am always looking for the good in whatever happens. The Universe is taking you in a new direction. Perhaps you have found the high road.
xx, Carol

I came looking for you a few days ago but didn't comment... not wishing to disturb you... I'm so glad to see you here again!

I feel like I've been pupating under water and am now out drying my wings... I wonder what I am now?

So glad to hear that you are here.

Oh and I should say I'm mostly posting on flickr at the moment.. have been doing a 365 dream images project where I attempt to take a photo each day inspired by the dreams from the night before...

I've not been explaining them much... just making a visual record

isaac asimov once said, “life is pleasant. death is peaceful. it's the transition that's troublesome.”

as we find, each in our own ways, this to be true, i would add that while troublesome, transition is also engaging. it teaches us many things that we would not otherwise learn. opens eyes. opens hearts. gives mind new causeways to pour forth and explore!

welcome back! i'm so pleased you found my blog and pointed me in the direction of your treasures!

Thanks for your comments and welcome back support! I love reading about feelings of "pupating under water and drying out my wings"...I am comforted by my artisan tribe! It is so interesting the twists and turns that the path to "heart openings"...thanks Joe...must take...like branches in the stream...catching thoughts and feelings as the water of life floods over them. I am thrilled to have a new friend..."Lady Hawthorne!" And to reconnect with my old friends...Hi Carol. I love that you never give up hope! Prepare for "Blooming" Ellen. I have only just begun...

Waiting with baited breath for your latest creations and thoughts...You brighten my January!!!!

Much love and heart opening...Camilla

I think I discovered your blog not long after you went away. I fell in love with all of your wonderful creations and with the inspiration you so easily shared. I book marked your site for inspiration and would pop back on it to read and re-read. Then, today I find you have returned!! What a joy! Looking forward to this new phase of your journey.
Peace~

what a beautiful spot in cyber space you've created here! thank you for introducing yourself with your comment on my blog. I have never heard of the Lascaux Resonance Gouache paints before, i'm fascinated. i'm just starting to move into tempura paints so this is fascinating.

Am I right in thinking the comment above is rather well-personalised spam? Katie does not seem to have a blog visible from her blogger profile...
