A safe place!
What warms my heart is my studio,it is there that I can rest and forget all that is sad and bad in this world,I get lost in this little place and all the magic in my world floats around me and restores my inner self.
I work on instinct,using my hands and eyes,I see with my mind,things that I cannot express with words and they come to life in my hands,it is exhilarating and magical how the whole process of creativity just gives birth to something that was only a thought or inkling in my mind.
I don't consider myself to be a great artist,Im just average but I am so very greatful to have been born with a gift that allows me the freedom to express my self with my hands,to experience a place where I can forget all that is happening and get lost in the process of art.
My studio was built with love,my husband worked for days laying cement,building walls,roofing ,electrics and so on,just so I could have a place to work in peace.
My kids love to come and visit there,they sit and talk,look around,touch things,they don't stay long now that they are in their late teens but they still like to visit awhile every now and then and when they are not there it is just me and my dog Booley chilling out in the special place we love.
What warmed my heart today,my family and my wonderful friends,the sea breeze,the birds feeding their babies,lady bugs, dragon flies,purple daisies and the blue blue sky!
