Monday Meanderings...


The beginning of another week
and one particular task is weighing
heavily on my mind today.

I have been procrastinating on this
project, mostly due to my lack of
familiarity with the necessary steps
to a successful completion. But the
time has come for me to stop being
scared of failing, no more excuses
or distractions, I must dive in with
everything I know and finish.

The above close-up is from an artwork
I just recently completed. It's part of a
series of collage paintings that marry
the pages from a very tiny autograph
book with paint, and vintage fabric.

I have placed this charming piece
next to my computer to help inspire
me, as I wander into the unknown of
this seemingly daunting assignment.
Hopefully, it will continue to remind
me that I don't always need to know
how something will or should end, but
to always follow my heart and enjoy
the journey.

Wish me luck!

This is so beautiful, I would love to have it sitting by MY computer. I have your tags spread around the house .. they inspire me and I cannot tell you how much I feel I have moved forward since buying your 'Nature' book. But what, please (I've been too long absent) is the task that is so daunting ...? I know the feeling of fear and of dread when tackling something new, or different. One step at a time, stepping stones over a river, maybe a leap in the dark .... With much love until I next catch up with you, A.
