A LOOK INTO THE WORLD OF THE CREATIVE SPIRIT.

Whimsey and light play in a field of rural homes.
Just a storybook doodle.
Winter's rain and darkness that begins in the just before light of early morning and lasts well into the evening, makes me want to nestle down into my overstuffed leather chair and draw in front of the television. My hands are a bit rested, my mind is still racing with everything that needs to be done for the show in Tucson and all I want to do is doodle. I love the act of drawing when my mind is wandering and thinking of other things. A freedom comes over me that allows me to draw with whimsey and delight. Nothing exists but the little world I am creating on paper in my lap. From these images spring the designs for my charms and jewelry. From the wandering of my mind comes the ability to concentrate on tasks to be begun and finished in the shop. Tonight I am feeling so very blessed to be able to do what I love. I am wishing that feeling and that blessing on all of you.
