Trusting my talent

Letting my talent take over me and not forcing I have created two new paintings still in process but I'm stoked where its going. Lately I have been getting this bursts of ideas. I think I'm going to start making a journal of ideas. So when I have a block I can just go into my bag of tricks and pull something out of the hat!

I have also been enjoying being a kid. My daughters are great helpers with that!! My husband does it all the time just jumps in and plays with them like his a big kid too. I forget about fun and it is such a relief to just let it go. Let all the have tos and shoulds out the door and just enjoy yourself. Don't worry about all the grown up stuff and just have fun! I want to be a kid again!
Anyways here are the new creations!

Then next is an update of one that I couldn't decide what to call and really didn't know what else to do with but some how it pushed its way out with a lot of headaches and me almost throwing it away. We made up and everything is better! Its called "Shoot for a Star"

Its almost finished I really am amazed how much better I feel about it. I will be so relieved when I'm finished with this one.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. Hope you have a wonderful day and know how much you are loved. Its the hardest but most rewarding job in the world!

    Hope you had a wonderful mother's day!
