The encaustic medium is magical, vibrant and translucent.  My creative muse guides, inspires and feeds my soul through this medium, mixed media and collage.  Blessing me with endless moments of creative joy and harmony...providing those ahhaa moments about life.  Join me on this creative journey, spend some time reading my musings about this life, the blessed other souls that come into contact with mine, however brief or often, that can leave everlasting imprints on our journey....perhaps our lives might share some similarities, bringing us closer and more connected...and less isolated.

"I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~ Edith Wharton

Here's to finding those expansive moments.....

What makes your heart sing?

My Heart Sings II - encaustic mixed media, 5 x 5, 2011

What makes your heart sing....?

Mine is the sound of a chickadee on a winter day
The glistening of the snow in the sun
A spot of red from a cardinal flitting by
Music, red wine and dancing while painting in the studio
The sound of my daughter's laughter
Ymmm... a Soy Cafe Latte especially with a friend
A silent morning with my journal on hand
A great book and a warm blanket
New art supplies and paper ...wonderful handmade papers
A nice refreshing invigorating walk
The magic of trees reminding us about the magnificence of life, the air and our universe
The opportunity to make a choice, each day a new fresh perspective
The ability to choose love over anything else
And to celebrate the small things and feeling the gratitude in my heart for all these moments, great and small
thank you....
