Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all …

Make Time for Art

Poured inks on canvas panel
words added digitally
I have allowed myself to be so "busy" this past year with my Etsy shops, that I neglected to make enough time for my art. And I miss it, the joy of constantly creating, be it a journal spread, a little ornament or a painting. 

I've been in a rut. The past few months, most mornings I get my tea brewing and head to the computer to check on the shops... and start working on packing up orders or listing things and a hour or two later I'm still in my sweats working away. (Ah, the dangers of working at home.)  Now to clarify, I do get up and out on certain mornings, with places to be early in the day. 

However most of my days have not included time in the studio. I am challenging myself to get up a bit earlier (I'm usually up by 6:30) and get in the studio with my cup of tea and create/work on some project BEFORE I go check on the shops. We'll see how that goes. :D

Revisiting old favorites

I have a few pieces in progress... however have been so busy keeping up with my Etsy orders with the Christmas rush, that I haven't had time to finish anything. 

So I'm posting one of my favorites from a few years ago...

December Bird Watching

A break in the rain Friday prompted quick trip to the Lummi Flats to bird watch. It's so gorgeous out there even without the birds. Mount Baker - the great white watcher - in the background.

Forgetting the "big" camera, I only had my cell phone. Impossible to zoom in on the Bald Eagle, Red Tail and Rough Legged Hawks, Northern Harriers, and Swans. I was able to get a (not great) photo of a blue heron hiding in the field... he was fairly close to the ditch at the side of the road.

And while we were out... saw some vintage war birds flying overhead. :) 

Happy Sunday!
