As I earnestly watched this man carrying on the tradition of weaving Sweet Grass Baskets, I wondered what he was thinking at that moment, from whom did he learn his craft, where did he gather the sweet grass, how long has he been creating these beauties, and what was his name. Didn't have the nerve to ask him, but maybe next time.

Lots of big old doggie breath, sloppy kisses, happy tenth birthday wish to my puppies. Love those guys.

This little lady was mixing the sea water from one bucket with sand in the other bucket striving for that perfect consistency. Hmmm...wonder if she will love to bake one day. What a sweetheart!

It is a pleasure to begin my blog with a painting entitled "Steppin Out" which I painted in South Carolina. I was entranced watching this guy play ball with his human dad on the shores of Hilton Head, and immediately knew I had to do a painting of him. He defined for me the phrase, "in the moment", as he joyfully romped and played.
I was attending Karin Jurick's workshop which was held on the Hilton Head Island in November. I experienced a truly amazing reawakening of the right side of my brain. She lives up to her reputation as a gifted and generous artist, a true inspiration to anyone seeking to trust their intuitive sense to see and paint. When you listen to your intuition it connects you with a greater knowledge. So true for me!
