I like the intricacies. Is it OCD, I’m not sure, maybe just a little. I do feel a compulsion to make art. I make art everyday one way or another. Sometimes I have got to throw paint around be brisk, tear it up, splat it, scrub it and mush it about. Other times I get very tiny, miniscule, and tight….the smaller the better, the more repetitions the better I feel. It is a meditation of sorts for me….the rhythm of the pen to paper soothes me. It puts me into the zone I love so much. I’ve talked about it before, it is pure nirvana. This is actually a print in my shop at…..www.theorganicgallery.com
Being grateful is an all encompassing feeling. It is a warmth that spreads throughout your body, thru your day, and throughout your life. It’s the warm, soft blanket of comforting I wear. It’s my broken down shoes that look just like my feet. It’s the smell of morning rain. Grateful is that cup of soup on a cold evening, or the feel of the book you are just finishing.
I don’t mind being completely enveloped by grateful. I’m grateful to be alive every day. www.theorganicgallery.com
Wow, Life does get away from you sometimes doesn’t it?
My mind has been elsewhere. These are the pictures in my mind and where it has been lately. Isn’t it wild when you think of all of the topics, thoughts, and pictures we create in our minds in a single day? That’s why the Buddhists call it monkey mind, our mind is everywhere flying through the tree tops doing a full somersault and landing upright only to take off on the trapeze again and again.
No wonder we need rest. I’m tired.
I haven’t been meditating like I usually do.
I need to get back to it, to melt into my bed at night letting everything drip off of me…..I awaken clean, clear and ready to tango with this crazy life over and over.
Sometimes I just need turquoise water, to float for hours.
What are the pictures of your mind???
Arise from the old, from the norm, stand apart, make your mark, be free, and be YOU!
Purple Swamp is a place that only exists in my mind, or is it?
I’ve seen this some where before….

I’ve been looking at a lot of ink drawings lately. Ink artists are some of the liveliest artist out there. I love to obsess on my little drawings. They are definitely a meditation of sorts for me. My mind is gone, just following shape, form and letting my intuition take me where it wants to go, it’s like Xmas. I never know ahead of time where I will end up. It’s traveling without a passport, no boundaries, going where ever. It really gives you a feeling of freedom. That’s what I love about it….No boundaries…..well, that and it satisfies my obsessive compulsive desires for hours.
Just go and get a pen, and sit for 2 hours, follow the lines, the ones you don’t see…..the ones that need to be there but aren’t. Follow your gut. YOU will be amazed.
Today’s Daily Digs comes from the beautiful interior portfolio of photographer Kristin Perers via Desire To Inspire. The spaces she photographs have a beautiful bohemian surf cottage vibe. Bright colors and rustic textures, this space gives us a hankering to wake up to the sound of the ocean waves. Even more so because that’s the one thing we’re missing in Colorado! We have to the beauty of the mountains, lush color everywhere you look, and sunshine almost every day of the year, but we’re missing the vast ocean blue at our beck and call. Here’s to dreaming of a beach vacation in this space!
How about you? Are you ready for spring or are you still in the winter dream? Our DENY Artists fit perfectly into the spring fever. We picked our favorites that inspired us for this room:
