Even though it's only May, summer has definitely arrived in Georgia! Daniel is finished with teaching for the school year and we are looking forward to long days spent relaxing in the backyard, painting, reading, enjoying good food, spending time with friends, going to the beach, and much more.

My Summer of Choosing Joy
I am currently taking a class from the fabulous Kelly Rae Roberts , called "The Wear Your Joy Project." When I signed up, I thought it was about finding your own unique style in clothing, something I had wanted to explore ever since I became a full-time art...

Love Languages
Last week, I had an epiphany of sorts! It's amazing to me that I can be almost 50 and am still getting to know what makes me the way I am. I've been thinking about this all week and have to write this down, mostly for myself, which is why I am posting some ...

New blog post is up! 
For years I have envied people who can make a plan and then stick to it. It's a no brainer for them. They make a plan so that they know exactly what to do when. I finally, finally realized that I am just not wired that way. I love making plans but when I try to make myself stick to them, ...

Too many numbers!
My week has been dominated by numbers and words: Taxes!!! Our tax return is done and as an antidote, I have prescribed myself a lot of painting with bright colors! So, without any more words and definitely without numbers, here is some color for us all to e...

Finding Routine
This year I am determined to find a routine that works for me. A flexible routine because I always need space for changes and spontaneity.  Love is Kind Acrylics on 11 x 14 inch canvas Part of that has been trying to figure how to blog, when to blog and mos...
Now I spend most of my day - every day - painting. And I'm very active on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to get my art out there and seen (and to connect with all my friends). Plus, I have an Etsy shop, an Artfinder Gallery Store and a Society6 shop to maintain and keep fresh, which takes a ...

New Blog Post
It's been a while since I posted and I've been thinking much about the last topic of planning vs not planning. There's another aspect to it that painting has revealed to me. I don't know about you, but I learn so much from the creative part of my self. When I think about things in the future: ...

Arguments with my Inner Voice
Does your intuition or inner muse talk to you? I recently discovered that mine does. In form of thoughts that won't let me go. It's a very persistent inner voice. And sometimes downright annoying.... Here's what happened with this painting. I had it to this...
Does your intuition or inner muse talk to you? I recently discovered that mine does. In form of thoughts that won't let me go. It's a very persistent inner voice. And sometimes downright annoying.... Here's what happened with this painting. I had it to this point and decided it was finished.

Introduction
I had never suspected that I had any creative talent until March of 2009, when I suddenly and without warning picked up a paint brush. I was raised in Germany but have lived in the US with my husband and various pets for the almost 30 years. This blog is about my life and what inspires me, be that art, food, travel, books, nature or various other things. So, welcome! Grab a cup of coffee and have a look around!
