Boy the devil is chasing me today! 2 hours of gardening, took flowers to my mother in law came back, watered the garden, and I am still, growling at myself.
Have a picture in my mind to paint the flowers I took over to Mom so I will go there, to my art, and see what happens.  Listening to your little voices is suppose to be a good thing.  So lets see if it works this time.  The painting will be pure emotion, I am not looking for perfection, just release.

That sounds lovely BA... I was at the market and saw some blackeyed susans. I didn't buy them, but I am going back tomorrow to see if they are still there. They were rudbeckia goldstrum. I love them. They are shorter and have more buds on them. I know just where I want to put them if they are even still there. I put some coneflowers in my hubby's garden, they look so pretty. They are called kneehigh kim. They are bright pink instead of purple. I love them. They are shorter too and have more buds on them. I like them kind.

I think it is wonderful that you are going to paint. It makes me want to. I am a starving artist I guess. Don't sell much work. We had a fire last year in my workshop. So all my artwork got soot damaged. I do have some canvases and paints somewhere. But I only seem to do it when I am a little depressed. I am feeling good so I have not been painting. But I am glad that you are thinking about it. I can't wait to hear how it comes out. Let us know.

I hope that your day is good today. I am glad that you feel the inspiration of art... That is special...

Karen,
seems we have some things in common. Gardening and art are my first go to's when I am struggling.
So sorry to hear about your fire, but on to the next chapter right?
I will let you know how it is come out. right now taking a med/meal break. Looks good so far, and it is flowing nicely out of me so I am looking forward to some emotional regulation or balance later tonight.

jamiee,
Maybe we could share a poem or 2 some time, I write poetry as well, when the mood strikes me. I have about 20 from the last year or so.

Also a great outlet
