New Landscapes

Sometimes I enjoy just doodling in my art journal.  Today I started with color pencils and watched as my patterns and colors filled my page.  Below is one of my favorite quotes:

I used to think this quote meant OPENING my eyes where I am now – my world.  Yet, I’m starting to understand that part of the discovery is EXPLORING new things…perhaps with new eyes but more importantly with an OPEN mind.

I decided to fulfill one of  the items on my bucket list this year and attend an art retreat in Oaxaca, Mexico!   I am so excited (a bit nervous too) and yet I am looking forward to new discoveries!  Oh, the colors and patterns I will see and the creative friends I will make!  🙂

Starting this Thursday, Feb 25, I will be taking an almost two week blogging break but I hope to post some photos on Instagram as Art Jill Kuhn.  I have been blogging almost every day for over a year so a little break will be nice – but I will miss all of you, my friends!

Happy Exploring!  🙂
