This site is about my life in the art studio. It includes drawings, paintings, knitting and cross stitch and fun art techniques. I will also include recipes and yoga and book reviews. This is a lifestyle blog with intentional and simple living ideas.
I am working from home as many people are in this world. Today, I wanted to get my paints out, but do not want to start a large painting, or anything that I would get overly involved in. I have this desire to paint from time-to-time but tend to not do it, because I am very busy with my work schedule.
As an art therapist I decided to work on a small painting using index cards for some mindfulness calming exercises before I start my day seeing clients.

I came up with a design with flowers. I like flowers because of the calming quality that they give.
I would like to say my plan is to paint one a day. I tend to not do well when I place a rule like that, as inspiration needs to be organic for me to be involved in it. Let’s see if I can pull this off more days in the week than just a few for a month.
