Back in June I started this 7 X 10 Art Journal and had no idea the journey it would take me on.  The colors are vivid…the theme is positive and the art is from my heart…..



I look back and know where and when I painted the pages… many great memories, miles traveled and pictures of my life…

Class ideas, pages created with special people, out to sea, on planes and at Starbucks.  My safe place.  I share the album HERE……

Thanks to all on this journey and this chapter of my life.  It is time to start another art journal, another chapter!

Growth is painful.  Change is painful.  But in the end, nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you do not belong.  Again, you’re not the same person you were a year ago, a month ago, or a week ago.  You’re always growing.  Experiences don’t stop.  That’s life.  It takes a great deal of courage to admit that something needs to change, and a lot more courage still, to accept the responsibility for making the change happen.  But doing so is worth every bit of effort you can muster.”
