Project inspired by a workshop taught by my friend Kim McElhatten.
to develop a tradition of
by pointing your compass to where your mind
connects with what delights you in the moment
when you shift your comfort from
only knowing one way
you reinvent the soul and you wake up
to a world where surprises await
one beyond your imagination
find your dreams everywhere
Bits of magazine words glued to black mat board. Decorated with Colleen brand colored pencils. I tore a magazine apart and searched for inspirational words which I cut out & added to a pile. Once finished, I spread them all out and searched for the message..... I will honestly admit that I worked on this for several hours - from the cutting, choosing, pasting, doodling. I especially took my time with writing the poem - which occasionally had me searching back through the magazine for a letter "s" to pluralize a word or an "ing"... you get the picture. Maybe next time I will be bolder & more spontaneous in my creation.
