{finding my way}

Amongst It
Amongst It*
Acrylics, collage, spray paint & Pitt pens on linen
14 x 14 inch

I have been:
  • Unplugging.
  • Getting rid of the noise drowning out my own voice.
  • Reading, riding my bike, cooking. Moving my mind and my body.
  • Spending time with friends.  In the real world, not online.  
  • Asking for help, and receiving it.  Graciously and gratefully.
  • Job hunting.  Putting my heart and head into finding some stable income.
  • Wearing shorts and thongs.  How I love this time of year.
  • Painting.  
  • Grounding myself.
  • Making decisions.  Big ones and small ones.  
  • Restoring order.
  • Resting.
  • Finding my way. Ever so slowly but ever so surely, finding my way.

*This painting is on it's way to Brisbane to be part of the Chapman & Bailey 2010 Belle Arti Award.  If you're Brisbane based and you'd like to check out a piece of my work in the flesh the exhibition runs from 22 November to 3 December at Metro Arts, 109 Edward St, Brisbane.  I'd love to hear from you if you do, seeing as I won't be making it myself.


  1. I think most of those points are a great to-do list for EVERYONE.

  2. Take it slowly gorgeous girl ;) You're the most important person you know ;) You'd get my vote if I had a say in the awards. Huge Hugs. xo.

  3. I love it -- the painting and where you're at.
    All hard work but so so worth it.

  4. Um. Have you noticed how amazing your stuff is?

  8. I tried to leave this comment on an earlier post of yours but I was using my phone and that's always a bit sketchy so here's my comment...I LOVE your trees in this painting and your landscapes you posted during blogtoberfest. They're really very art nouveau-y. I love love love them.

  9. This is wonderful piece! I love the use of the red in the trees.
