Time speeds on and one day you look up and realize it has been quite awhile since you blogged.  Let me catch you up!

I have accomplished a couple of major goals in the gap between now and my last posting.  It is amazing how creative goals can gulps time and energy leaving little time or mind space for other things, like blogging.

Exploring the Natural World through Mindful, Expressive Drawing is the subtitle to the book because each chapter is introduced with my personal nature photography that showcases Zenspirational possibilities for expressive tangles and repetitive patterning guided by a synergistic partnership of “logic and intuition” for finding unique tangles inspired by your favorite florals, leaves, trees, reeds & weeds, landscapes, and more.

    I’ve been a long time fan of your style and approach. I loved the guest post for the Diva where you got us to work in series and was so surprised with what I came up with. So imagine my thrill to see you have released a book – I ordered it on Tuesday, it arrived yesterday and it surpasses my hopes. I can’t wait to get working on the exercises.
