Since my kids and Grand Cherubs
have moved so much closer,
I am thrilled and honored to
spend so much time with them.
It's the idyllic life
we all dream of...
but most never attain.
I used to fill my hours with my art,
but now a few days a week are filled
with the world through the eyes of a two-year-old.
IT IS MAGNIFICENT!
I try to let myself relax into that innocent mode
and just see things as they really are.
** I am so grateful for this gift **
Soon my two little Innocents will also grow up...
and will have to deal with real life....
but, for now, I choose to see the world
through their eyes: a two-year-old and a 5 month old.
I grabbed a free hour this afternoon and did
a bit of monoprinting with one of my Gelli Print Plates.
The above shot is one where I used my new Gingko stencil.
I also cut a few ferns and branches in the garden
(actually this is my first layer of prints)
The positives and the negatives were appealing to me!
I kept feeling like I was getting somewhere,
but not quite there:
Being away from creating for a few days,
I was eager for
a stupendous result!
(you know how that is, right?)
Is it this?
but there are really nice elements in both....
and they can be cut up
and joined together.
....and there was the thrill of the moment!
My life is crazy right now....
but I wouldn't change it for the world!
We took Charlie to a baseball game
the other night...
and he LOVED it!!
There IS time for FAMILY...
and there is time for ART....
we just need to find the happy medium.
I thank you for stopping by.
Hope you have a wondrous weekend.
