Winter's End


At winter's end

light plays on my worktable.

 Treasures are rediscovered

and new projects are revealed.

During this inbetween time

The magestic seems

even more magestic,

As glass windows reflect

the rebirth of life.

Art is a red wall,

a bench,

an orange blanket.

Art hangs from the ceilings.

And is right there,

under your feet.

 Sweet memories are made,

new andventures are had,

Walking and exploring

the streets of Portland

with my daughter.

Color and black and white

are equally beautiful. 

My Art Journaling class began this week 

at Oregon Institution of Technology

where I am an Adjunct Professor. 

I am just loving this college and my students!

Ideas flow from my worktable

to share at the workshop that

I taught at the Woodburn Art Center

just south of Portland last week. 

You can see the wonderful photographs 

of this Mixed Media Art Journaling workshop here 

And read about it on this blog!

At home art works were prepared to hang.

at the Illahee Gallery

Invitational Book Arts Show

for the month of April.

The opening is Friday, April 4th 

and I would love to see you there!

I have two workshops coming up, 

The first,

The Art That Binds Us Together is 

on Saturday, April 12.

And the second is Sunday,April 27

at A Work Of Heart

in San Jose, California.

There are just a few spots left at both workshops! 

I also will get to spend time

 creating and planning

with this amazing artist.

A winter's end

I am ready for spring...

For new challenges,

new dreams to come true

and to always see the world

with fresh eyes.
