When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

Drawing In Process

I want to break out and paint...bigger, better and freer than ever:) But time,professional obligations and the business of life are messing with my creative flow."If I draw for only an hour a day", she whispered to herself, "I might just create something of value." I do talk a lot to myself by the way. It is inevitable for artists who spend a great deal of time alone. So for an hour,or less, I sketched my daughter. It is worthy of developing and I did enjoy using charcoal again. Drawing is often dismissed as the poor orphan to painting and sculpture. I love to draw and continue to be attracted, in recent weeks, to this process.Perhaps that will ease the desire to paint ...ease but not eliminate.
