A lovely illustration of change…a local sunflower
I have been dragging my heels, avoiding doing something that has needed to be done…but I am on my way! If you have been here before, you probably notice, things are different around here!
It has taken me a while but I finally got thoughts together and organized (kind of) and, well, welcome to my new home. I needed to change the look of my blog to better reflect where I am going with my art work, my paper sculptures. My old header was wonderful and I miss it, but I grew out of it, so here I am….compliments of my son Tom!
So much has happened in the last few months and I have been remiss in reporting all of this great progress!
So much has happened since we last spoke. I have been making my big, beautiful paper flower sculptures but, honestly, I am trying to figure out the very best way to get them out into the world. They delight me when they are hanging around the house with me, but my mission is to spread the delight! Some of them are still at Millesime and I have recently entered another local sculpture show. It is a juried show which means there is a panel who decides if my pieces get selected. Usually it is a group of artists who do the selecting. Actually, I don't know who does the judging for this show but I hope they like flowers! This is another step towards letting the world experience the "Delight".
All of this progress, all of these changes have been exciting and terrifying at the same time. I have been asking for changes from myself and they have come. My environment seems to be self adjusting. I am stepping forward in faith, embracing the changes and looking forward to what tomorrow brings.
The most important single thing I learned in college: "Change is the only constant". How very terrifyingly, thrillingly true!
Make today your best day ever!
p.s.Facebook "Like" me, share me and a tweet would be great too! Thanks
