*(coffee, as seen above..is every day..I tried to quit today with the sugared espresso's but that was just silly!)
We live near the puget sound and have local access within 15 minutes of our house. I have been out with my camera on a few occasions taking in the beauty of nature as our weather has been unseasonably warm, but very welcomed. I am always in awe of the clarity I fee after spending time with art in nature.
I am grateful to my husband who knows and supports my hobby. Sometimes I have to put the camera down to focus on my family. I loved shooting the art in this location because Chihuly is such an amazing artist in his medium.
Again with the photography, it is the one thing that really gets me out into nature. I adore my macro lens and captured this little bug at another of my favorite beaches in Edmonds. I am more an artist in all avenues of my life. Everything is art. Life is art. Art imitates life for sure. Beyond the paint brush, the mixed media, and projects as such, the project I am working on at the moment is me. I am inspired by all of these forms of art and they keep me afloat, but I am a writer, I am a dreamer, I am a student and all at the same time these things are trying to find their place in a happy harmony within my chaotic machine of a brain.
So with this art, I am moving slightly more towards self growth and discovery and away from the "challenges" or prompts of others, that while are a fun diversion, cloud the real and important pieces of my life that deserve the most attention. Simply me.
