"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

I have been on a painting roll this week. Have had some successes and some failures.

I pulled out Sarah Ahearn Bellemere's book Painted Pages and played. I have found that while I love her work, I personally like a bolder, more graphic painting style! But I find every time I try something new I learn, and I am changed.

I too love trying out techniques that other artists use and see what they can bring to my own style. Inspiration is everywhere.
And yes, we need to let ourselves make art we don't love and just remember that we took that time to be creative !
Have a great creative and happy weekend, Mary !

Being open to new adventures always lead to successes and failures but learning something new is the important thing which obviously you did....You always amaze me with your spirit of adventure in your art...

I too love these colors; I think we are all yearning for spring....
