A Unique Primitive Art with a whisper to the past~

These truly ARE the voices in my head.

When I was a young girl,
my Daddy told me, 
I could do anything 
that I set my mind to...
 I could be anything 
I wanted to be.

As I grew into a young woman
and entered the workforce,
I realized that it was still a man's

I tossed that power suit
and heels...
and I made my own way.
I followed my bliss 
of family, children,
and my art.

Many a time,
 I would  hear that I couldn't
complete my vision
in the way or technique 
that I wanted.

I have always
stepped quietly away 
from those men...
and came back, 
proving them wrong.

has always served me well.
It keeps me challenging
to work out a
"can't" and make it a "can".
It pushes me
to grasp
the process and technique
in areas that 
I feel are not my strength
and own just a bit of it.

....in the end,
it comes down to problem-solving.

This year,
I am using 
to work on
human faces
and watercolor.

Who says
that you
just have to 
pick one???

Yawn and Stretch

February crept in
under a crisp,
starry night.
Quiet and without fanfare...

I peeked out 
to say hello, 
in the wee hours,
before I making my way
to my slumber.

With February's entrance,
our visit from
the arctic vortex is starting to retreat...
Imbolic brings a celebration;
we are halfway between
Winter Solstice
Spring Equinox.
we are ever closer to 

Last night, 
was also the release of EHAG '19.
I usually do
Skelly Girls for Bewitching Peddlers...
but you may see a rare one, 
here or there, 
to celebrate something special
during the year.

I have already
started my sculpts 
Bewitching Peddlers
as I work on my outline for the year.
While January
is a rather long feeling month...

I have kept myself
in clay
and hot tea beside.

As February
starts its day,
I feel a new sense of vigor~
knowing Spring will be here soon.
Time to shake January fully off of my shoulders
and get moving into February.
