Art Journal — Living, Growing, Blooming

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

Living, growing, blooming.  All wonderful things.  But sometimes I forget that this is what life is about.  Too concerned with the day to day have to’s that I forget to live, grow and bloom for myself.  Taking a moment to step back into life and enjoy the simple joy of it.  Living, growing, blooming, breathing, seeing, feeling, experiencing.  That’s what I am doing today. How about you?

  5. VERY cool tree. Love how you designed it. It’s happy, uplifting, and stands out so nicely on the page!! Great job.

  6. Glad as always to see you allow yourself some “me” time. I shall be doing the same but my journal page will regretfully show the tree cut down as that is what is happening here. 🙁

  7. Perfect for fall!
    That is a sweet tree!
    I bet soon it will have apples!
    (no autumn in FL yet)

  8. Beautiful piece of work!

  9. Still trying to get my feet back under me after a whirlwind couple of weeks…:) Hugs! deb

  10. First, to your art: I love the “elementary” or “basic” feel to your background. It gives the whole piece a sense of strength. Your tree, too, shows strength and wisdom with the goodness of life showing in the veins of the bark. And, then, the leaves, possibly representing people in all their different stages of their journeys. Remarkable art, Corrine! Your message of “living, growing, blooming” is well received here. As one moves to a more “senior” journey, the relevance of this becomes even more important. Seize the day, I say!

  11. one word:

    Love your fabulous tree Corinne!

  20. What a wonderful page, Corriene!! Love the collage leaves

  21. Awww gorgeous Corrine, look at the leaves…each one of them tells its own story! And yes it all takes time…time to grow, time to bloom, to fruit and also time to rest and look inward after the harvest is over…to have the power to start a new groth in spring again…thank you for reminding me 🙂
