January Round-Up | Free Beauty Found on the Internet

I am constantly in awe of the beauty that is all around me if I have my eyes open to it. Sometimes I find it putting away all of the Christmas decorations, helping the big kids get back to college, putting the studio in order, a second cup of coffee, the joy of reading the last page of a book, and drives down roads I have never been before. Sometimes I even find beauty on the internet. I found so …

Like breathing, I knew to make.   I was the maker on the sidewalk with chalk covered hands, in the front sunroom of the house on Center Street playing school, under the big pines writing in my journal imagining myself as an author, in the barn loft putting on a sold-out play, sketching in the backseat of the car, making up commercials …
