Some new pages and life

I'm getting settled here in my new home. I'm finally getting it to where it feels like my home, and not the previous owner. I still need to do my blessings with sage. My friend conducted that ceramony several years ago when I bought my previous home. It cleanses your home, and it just feels "right".
 I created this page today after getting some "Raw Vision" magazines in the mail. I feel inspired in a new way.

Too big

I am having a tree removed today that is too big and much to close to my house. I hate to see it go,,, but it creates havoc on my roof and sewer line. I have many more trees in my backyard, so I will still get plenty of shade. I think my neighbors are glad to see it go too.

New studio

I am slowly getting set up in my studio. I can't wait to get it all messy. The shelves were put up earlier in the week. That way I can have more room and start teaching in my home studio. Lovely.

Broken wing 2

The theme around my art right now is about my broken wing. (Rotator cuff). It has been a very slow healing process. I finally got to see a great acupuncturist today so I am hoping the healing will go faster. So for now,,, I am painting,,,but with caution, it still hurts to paint.

Broken wing

I tend to work with themes at any given time in my life. Most often my theme centers around bunny slippers. I know,,, something very sweet from my childhood. At this present moment my theme is centered around my recent event of damaging my rotator cuff. My wing. It hurts to paint,,,but I will get through this.

Broken Wing

I call this spread "Broken Wing". It's about the big move in my life. Quitting my job (to create art full time), buying a new home and moving to another state. In the process of all this positive change,, I broke my wing.
Actually I injured my rotator cuff in the move. I like to think of it as my "wings". I'll be flying again soon, thou.

New home, new state, new studio

I recently moved to another state,,,to Salem Oregon. I can't begin to tell you what an overwhelming journey this has been for me. I sold my home in Washington state, and I am now happy to say,,,I'm in a new city that seems to fit me. I injured my arm during the move, so getting things done has been a slow process. I will be able to teach in my new home studio. The start  of the cubby shelves went up today. There will be another section added this weekend. I've always wanted cubby shelves in my studio! This frees up more space so I can teach here.  The photos above are just of one wall, where the shelves are being custom built to fit the space.  I am so very excited about my new adventure!

Thank you to all of you who have followed me on my blog and have stayed with me during this time of transition.
