Eyes Wide Open

Drawing is a way to explore thoughts that words cannot describe. I have many words to say, unfortunately no one to share those words with. So I think alot, too much in fact.  I have been feeling lonely but not lonely in the way where I need someone and anyone around to fill the void. This lonely is desolate. I am frozen from life. I have no idea what I want anymore.  I need to abandon this feeling and strip away the old worn out thoughts, but I feel frozen.
This drawing surprises me, because it is not frozen, desolate or lonely. There is energy, growth and movement all of which I feel has been frozen.
There is an openness and calm sensation. Perhaps I am opening those frozen thoughts and letting them go. Time will tell.

Color Passes Time By

It has been awhile since I posted. I have been a busy lady. Work has taken my time. I am beyond exhausted, yet again. I have been tested with challenging cases, challenged with decisions both personal and professional, and been trying to maintain faith during all of it.
Spring is a beautiful time of the year. At the same time it is a tearful season. It's the time of year my mom is thought about when I see every flower blooming in my garden and while I sit outside on my courtyard looking at irises and drinking sweet ice tea.
It is no wonder that this was created. As I near the day my mom died, I will take time to reflect. I miss her. I know she's looking at my art everyday. And probably waiting anxiously for me to finish that cross stitch.

Color passes time by, but a heart broken takes faith. 

Cheers to St . Patrick's Day
