"... a lifetime isn't long enough for the beauty of this world
and the responsibilities of your life ...
scatter the flowers over the graves, and walk away,
be good-natured and untidy in your exuberance ...
in the glare of your mind, be modest,
and beholden to what is tactile, and thrilling."
--Mary Oliver

First I want to thank everybody who has sent me their well wishes. You are all awesome! Thank you! I will be having surgery in December and hopefully be on the road to recovery after that. ;)

I haven't been updating my blog very much because I've been busy painting! Ooh, I am having so much fun in Wyanne's class and doing a little experimenting on my own. We are learning a ton of new techniques, getting some challenging assignments and I'm really just soaking it all up. I hope to have something to show in a couple of days.

This is a digital piece I put together with some elements from Scrapbook Graphics. The background is a compilation of some of my art papers merged together with papers from various digital kits. As always, Mary Oliver's words are an inspiration to me.

It is so beautiful! But the words you always add give your work such a wonderful, extra voice.

All of us will be sending you healing thoughts after your surgery.
