Do you love being alone?

I love being alone.  I know lots of people don't like it, but I find it so invigorating.  This is my very favorite poem/video by Tanya Davis and Andrea Dorfman.  I can just watch this over and over.  Hope you love it too.

Blogging for Bliss

I'm reading Blogging for Bliss, by Tara Frey, which I checked out of my local library.  I've enjoyed it and I've gotten several helpful tips for blogging.  I'd like to link back to Tara's blog, but a password is required, oddly enough!

This book. along with my class with Jessica Sprague, encouraged me to make a new blog banner that was more ...ME...   So I took my first painted journal page, turned it landscape, and started adding some swirls, brushes, and my blog name.

I'm very happy with it, but that doesn't mean it won't be changed any minute now!  As I frequently say, the only thing I'm consistent with is change.  After which my husband always remarks, "As long as you don't change me, honey, that's ok."

I won't.

Beautiful, beautiful!!! Watch this poetry...

This just made me feel so good...hope it does the same for you.  I love, love this. And this is unusual for me to love poetry; listen to Tanya Davis and watch Andrea Dorfman and tell me what you think...

Really fun online class!

I just started Jessica Sprague's "Brushabilities" class, and it is great!  I've learned a lot about brushes on my own, but Jessica taught me some new tricks in the first lesson.  She rocks!  Here are the first two projects that we completed:

The first lesson inspired me to add some design to this art journal background that I painted yesterday.  It needs some orange, don't you think?
