2006 challenge

MERRY CHRISTMAS! and Happiness in the NEW YEAR!

I have a bright and hopeful outlook for '06. I don't think '05 lived up to my standards and expectations as far as experiencing enough change in my creative explorations. I need to hook up with some support that will prompt me to try new things and fearlessly step beyond the safe boundaries that have anchored me into the mundane. There are pages of notes and sketches, words and ideas that are screaming for me to forget loss and with confident sweeping motions, find pure freedom and inner release.I received some wonderful gifts under the tree this year. Two new instructional books on painting wildlife and painting birds. I fear the challenge from either, but my husband is determined to tap into my "less than refined" side of artistic capabilities. So it will be in these next few wintery months that I will indulge in some new territories to vanquish that horrible spirit of fear that binds me.In all that we do, let it come from our hearts so that we may be sure and confident it will produce a truth beyond our own understanding.
