Running... and running late!

Don't you hate it when you find yourself running like a chicken with your head cut off?
I've got to slow down and enjoy these ordinary moments.
I've had fits of the giggles with friends but working every available minute, too.

I did a photography class in Denver and got to spend time with artists Leslie Clarke and Jane Maday. It's a bit dangerous to turn three artists loose together. We whipped out our cameras for reference photos every two seconds!

I've painted and snipped and inked all day long and far into the night.

Even in the bathtub!

I'm on another prolific streak lately. I am enjoying the creative process, reaching in different directions for a fresh new look.

After working for hours it's always invigorating to snap a leash on one of the doggie pals and take a brisk jog down the road. 

And day of the week, any week of the year there is enough magic in this little valley to fuel the imagination and rest the eyes.

Hope is emerging in the gorgeous green stand of willow, and in my heart as well.

Ah, spring...
