I am feeling much better and happy to be blogging again! YAY! 😃
I couldn’t stay away from creating in my art journal for too long…
And discovered this sketchbook to be the perfect size for a little art!
Sometimes I think I have to make something BIG for it to be considered as ART…
Yet, this is not true! After all, flowers come in all shapes, color and sizes so why not art?
And art journaling isn’t about a MASTERPIECE…
But EXPLORING and creating…
And experimenting with different art mediums!
Who knows what discoveries I will make by creating a little art in my journal…
I encourage you to give it a try!
Plant a little art today…

I recently posted about Octopuses, here.
I have been feeling a little under the weather – which often happens to me when the weather gets cooler this time of year in the Pacific Northwest – so I started looking at some past photos of my flowers:
As you can see, I love mixing colors in flower pots as well as with paint:
It got me thinking about what flowers would be in an octopus’s garden:
I enjoy creating patterns – they are very calming and meditative for me.
I also find that flowers bring me joy much like this quote from Lady Bird Johnson, “Where flowers bloom, so does hope.”
What brings you peace when you are not feeling yourself?
Wishing you a day of sunshine and flowers! 🙂
