A Place To Just Be
I See You
Cloud Study No.7 (edge of night)
Hello again. I have been back from the beach for a week and have been busy unpacking, doing laundry, tending the garden and filling our bellies with all the good stuff we've grown this year and I've been busy painting. In between all the catch up involved in coming back from 10 days away I have managed to fit in quite a bit of studio time. In addition to finishing up these four pieces, over the weekend I prepped two 24x24" boards for an abstract painting class I'll be attending this week. I haven't taken in a class in awhile and I'm excited and a bit nervous about letting go and painting big with others. I have a feeling the beach trip and/or the idea of water will find it's way into whatever I create in class. I really miss being close to the water and truly enjoyed every minute of our trip to Charleston and the beautiful beach on Isle of Palm. There is something about being near the water that opens me up, helps me make sense of things and that is calming and reassuring. For me, being near the water almost always means slowing down and reconnecting with nature, myself and people I love...I carried that feeling home and unpacked it in 'A Place To Just Be'. With the last weeks of summer upon us I am savoring the long days, fresh veggies and flowers and the company of my three kiddos. What about you...where are you finding your bliss this summer?
