Google+ What I Made Today: Pause

Thursday, February 10, 2011


Before I cleaned up my paint and collage mess, I paused to doodle an image to capture a bit of the creative chaos.

Once it was tidied, I put the kettle on to boil and paused again to fill one side of the page with images of held inside my (grandmother's) breakfront. The kettle whistled and I opened the glass door to retrieve a teapot and cup to assist me with my next pause.

That's what I made today. Peace.

Seriously, more people need to do that throughout the day-It's a nice stress reliever!

Plus it's just so fun and creative :D

LOVE your doodles/drawings!

You are really getting to me. One of these days I'm going to draw something. I love how you just DO it without worrying about photographic perfection

There's something I love about the serenity in your life and how well write about it. These sketches are so nice.

How wonderful to be able to draw and paint and have it look like something recognizabl. Sigh, not one of my talents. It's just beautiful Rose~~

Thanks, you wonderful bloggin' friends!

And remember to PAUSE once in a while, several times a day, every day. It is Powerful Medicine.

As for drawing _ I don't care what anyone says - everyone can do it. I may have to do … *something* to facilitate more trust and faith in a line, a squiggle, a scribble … and less judgement and attachments to outcomes.

♡♡♡ you "guys" :)
