Good Morning Monday + i heart Art



art by chandana

Another Monday. Another summer day.

Sunshine’s like sheets of beaten gold; the afternoons are beginning to boil; summer’s galloping at a steady pace. And my days are about juggling the many roles that define and fill my life with melting moments and minutiae.

I’m also taking this time think out my work plan. Do I want to pour in more time into my professional writing business? Should I re-start my health coaching practice? Can I fit in a seasonal illustration business, so I can turn my children’s art into posters and cards & sell them once-every-quarter?

Or hey, should I just go slow, taking each day as it comes, simmering my plans on the back burner? (Ah…ummm…not really my style.)

So as these questions soak up some of my brain power, let me tell you a bit about a passion that’s been consuming me for a while.

Art.

Children’s illustrations.

I started doing them when I was a child myself, but really started focusing on my style a bit over a year ago.
I ink and paint little children, capture the simplicity and joy in the everyday. The magic in our dreams. The fairy dust on the moonbeam. Lately, I’ve been painting and doodling pictures, in my journal and in my sketchbook, reveling in the sliver of undiluted happiness that drawing fills me up with.

I’ve also been taking some courses to fire up my inspiration…to help me explore different kinds of media. I’ve been at Alisa Burke’s portal, taking some of these courses.

And I wanted to ask you – are you learning something new? What is making you happy these days? I'd love to hear from you.

In the meanwhile, do stay tuned – I will be back with photographs of my paintings soon.

Good Morning Monday + Hello New Week!
