Monday we gathered for our usual Monday Mixed Media nights.  We created a page from start to finish…..recap HERE:



From that night spawned so many works of art that you shared with me!

It is completely inspiring that you guys get it and are doing this with me.  Being BOLD and learning as we go along!  This was posted the other day by Yvonne who said "Oh I was stressing out over it big time as one point Tracy, but I do that to myself alot…  And then a very wise and wonderful group suggested I just do what I can with what I have and to love the process!!….So that is exactly what I'm putting my mind to doing!"  That is what I am all about.  We are always learning, growing and finding out who we are as artists.  We are ever evolving and why not just enjoy the process along the way.  Why not take chances, paint something you have never painted….try a new technique and just enjoy the process.  Kind of like with life.  We are so busy about getting some place, striving for a a raise, running with a certain crowd.  Why not just stop and enjoy the ride right where we are.  I try to do that.  In my rushed days of carpooling kids, going to work, doing laundry, etc. I take those moments to enjoy the music on in my car, be thankful for the banter of kids laughing in the back seats and having jobs I love to go to.  It makes the rushing around not so rushed and being thankful for just where I am right now, with the people I am with and the things I want to be doing. 

May you BE Bold, Be YOU and Enjoy right where you are.  I thank all who join me on Monday night pushing me to be bolder, and strong as the weeks go by! 


"When we focus on leading a passionate, meaningful life, we are also inadvertently creating a spectacular ripple effect of inspiration in the lives around us.  When one person follows a dream, tries something new, or takes a daring leap, everyone nearby feels their passionate energy; and before too long, they are making their own daring leaps while simultaneously inspiring others."
