solstice heart ~ colored pencil and pencil on a shell from the outer banks of NC

on this beautiful solstice day i want to wish you a happy solstice - or a merry christmas, or whatever holiday you celebrate!


i'm still getting out when the weather's warmish, wandering and visiting trees.  this is the tree i sat beside today,


drawing, listening to music, dancing - going barefoot!  my favorite things!

me

i wish you the most joyous of holidays!  and for those of us in the northern hemisphere, here's to more light!

  1. Great joy right back to you,
    not that you need it, you already have it, running barefoot and out in nature like a true blue artist of the world!

  13. I like to work on 2-3 stories at a time. Simply because for me each story represents a certain issue Im addressing or a particular emotion Im feeling. By having several different stories to work on, you have several different outlets and you in no way really feel pressured.

  22. Hello Lynne,
    Been missing you in the blog world and hope that everything is fine. Plus, I know that you like Gillian Lee Smith's art...today she has opened registration for her first online class. Didn't know if you were interested, but I wanted to let you know just in case you were. Again, I hope all is well.
