Awakening Series
{awakening watercolor series & a new orchid}

Well hello there,

It has been awhile since my last post, life has still be full of sorting out all sorts of things...

I am diving into physical therapy for my back {which is improving the situation} and I am embracing my two words for the year growth & inquiry. Every time I have entered the studio lately exploration and trying new things have been taking precedence, which means a lot of started paintings have been scraped down. It is all about process and enjoying the experience. I have been spending more time offline, reading, observing, drawing, and painting. Sometimes spending time in the studio only thinking about art.

In the coming weeks, as I continue to explore and spread creative wings full of inquiry, I am choosing to blog once or twice a week. It is important to me to use time in a way that encourages process and investigation.

It is also important to me in how I am sharing with you, I appreciate your time spent here on the blog. In this I want to share with you completed thoughts, not fragmented threads that have yet to develop into something whole.

Ale! Thanks for visiting and writing in spanish, I need all the practice I can get. My spanish is so rusty, I am embarassed to write much in spanish right now :)

Hi Manon, yes my back is improving, slowly... it is like one step forward and then a waiting period... though I am hopeful things will continue to improve.

Thanks Kerri, everyday is a new day, something new to try out and something new to scrape down... though things are going to start coming together soon, it has to.

Here's to inquiry, experimenting, and having enough willpower to scrape down and start over! Brava!
Love the photo with the bright little watercolors.

P.S. I've also been doing PT for my back...and slowly but surely it is repairing itself.

Jala, I am happy to hear your back is on the mend :) I feel that when my body is feeling good anything is possible... even scraping down and starting over! Though I have to admit I love starts, it is having the patience to keep going when something is almost there but not quite that is the most challenging for me.
