Iceland Part 2


We stayed at a hostel while in Iceland that was very lively
and cozy at the same time...


Which was often a contrast to the nature all around us
 Vast and moving with it's own rhythm - 


There was a saying, "There is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing" 
that I saw a few places- and this is an environment that one should pay heed to
in that regard...


Reykjavik is a smallish city perched by the sea with it's own
unique character- quirky and enduring 


With many hidden gems that will blow your mind :)

Iceland Adventure prt1


Getting back on my feet from our adventure to Iceland and Norway,
now I get to pull the pictures off the good camera to share
 instead of my phone- which I love but let's face it- 


It's all in the lens :)


There's so much to say about Iceland and the wildness of it.
It's overwhelming.
You just have to give yourself to it's wild and woolly nature
 and dress for the occasion


Then it will reveal it's magic to you :)

Susan is hosting the D.C. this weekend with the theme "Inner Eye"
very deep and awesome theme :)
This week I chose to make a soft sculpture, a meditation pillow to remind me
that there is always more to explore on the inside.
Please visit Flying Dog Studio for more ethereal inner eye visions!

DC- Nude





Patrice is our host this weekend with the theme Nude.
My first thoughts when I think of this word immediately go to 
Imogen Cunningham and her beautiful photos. I love how the figure becomes
more about abstract forms and makes the viewer wonder how they were taken.
As it turns out we are in a bit of a heat wave at the moment so this theme was appropriate
as we are all showing a bit more skin than we have in a long time.
Please check out Patrice's fantastic blog for more takes on the theme Nude :)

Welcome summer! We have been busy making hay while the sun shines so to speak.
Stacking wood, strawberry picking and visiting with friends.
We are all excited in 2 weeks we are traveling to Iceland and then Norway for some
vacation time! Hoping to sneak another drawing challenge or two in before then :)
have a great week!

Enjoying the last few days of Spring...the kids are out of school
and I spent the afternoon throwing papers into recycling.
Trying to clear my head and get into Summer mode, but 
the transition is always bumpy.
what can one say but- "let the games begin"

Art for me as of late has been the act of
 moving between solitude and exposure
and experiencing the contrasts with in...
