all of a sudden....

it all wants to come out

i find little wooden candle lids to paint on

wander up the coast to sew with mary stanley
and then return to paint some more
trying to get my output like it used to be. i so want to begin selling again.
there is always  a sketch or two in the journal

i believe it be great practice
i tried my hand at a frida
in between setting up shelfies in my art studio

i am calmer, without that heavy feeling in my chest. 
the RETURN has really started to fill me up with "me-ness". i feel californian to the bone. we are, after all, creatures of habit. 
the house, the friends, the outings, the creativity seem more in tune with my inners.
i am also learning more about photography

and still preparing an album for tigo with all his funny faces and poses
love that darling snout
i've also been invited to teach at whimsy antiques in carpinteria come april so have been deep in creating templates for a mixed media storybook dress
and i finally finished my melodie stacey inspired embroidery.
all comes from the inspiration i find from other artists. it seems there are more and more popping up every day which is a good sign of battling the symptoms of a world a bit lost at times.

There is something special about everything you create Constanza. I can't pick a favorite, it's just too difficult.

I could get used to a place like California.

Thank you for your wonderful comments on my blog a couple days ago. You made me feel special.
