My life is fluid -- malleable, transforming, evolving.
It will never become stagnant, even if I wish it.
There can only be movement, as every thing in nature sways in a constant dance of symbiosis.
There are no coincidence.
Instead, there is synchronicity.
No accidents happen -- opportunities arise.

Art in process is alive -- breathing, dancing, changing.
It will never become stagnant, even if we wish it.
There can be only movement, as every thing sways in constant dance.
There are no coincidences.
Only, synchronicity.
No accidents.
Only opportunity.

We change just as we breath at a instant at a awe at a time.

Continued -- Glam and Glory

I've continued working on the bags. I've done nearly a dozen in some cute Halloween fabric I've found, thinking they'd be cute for trick or treat bags for kids. (Excuse the mess of my sewing room floor. LOL)

I've also done a few capes and ponchos. This cape is by far the glammiest (is that a word, well, whatever). Its glorious pink satin on one side and gold stretch velvet on the other. VERY shiny.
I'm hoping everything does well at the festival this weekend! Wish me luck. Wrote this little ditty in response to a question for a free spot in an online art journaling class that I covet, but can't afford, so I thought I'd share it here:
There once was a creature named Cloudy.
People sometimes described her as dowdy.
She was quite curvy and round.
With lovely black hair, unbound.
Her eyes were green ice.
Her cheeks were right nice.
She wore dresses and smocks to the ground.
Breathy singing was always her sound.
Most people didn't think twice,
And certainly never thrice,
When Cloudy came into town,
In colors reminiscent of clowns.
But Cloudy was special, you see.
She lived with her soul wild and free.
She wandered and danced,
Chanted, sang, and romanced,
Under the moon, by the sea.
Her partner sometimes only the tree.
And, as she aged well,
Her story to tell,
Her soul lived wild and free.
And, Cloudy, is who I will be....MLW

Thou Art Goddess

I've lately realized that:
I want to draw and paint faces in a way that feels beautiful to me.
I want to feel my heart open and free and wild.
I want to be passionate. Passion is something so special and powerful. And, when combined with love, there's no greater force.
I want to be that wave of energy so that I can waken that spirit in others. 


I know its been 14 forevers since I've posted anything...sheer laziness. But, I was so inspired by my trip to the Outdoor Art Show, today, that I felt compelled to do some catching up.

Most recently, I've been working on some bags to vend at an upcoming festival the end of this month. The one above is Brown moleskin outside and blue flannel camo on the inside. It is fully lined, has tie-straps (to be adjustable) and can be used reversible. I'm considering selling for $15 each.

This one is also brown moleskin exterior with cotton car print interior. Also reversible. Also $15.

I'm working on some cotton/cotton and cotton/knit ones as well that will be $10 each.

Also making a few different reversible capes (some with hoods, some without). Pics coming soon!
