catch up?

Never! It's been way too long--but I have no excuses--
we begin again!
I am proud to be part of the "Creative Therapy" team that Karen put together. We are a group of artists that are given catalysts every week and are to create art with the weekly catalyst! In the theme of catching up=I will show you the first one I did--and give you the link to the site-
the catalyst was" where do you go to find your center?"

This is definitely where I go to find my center. Two fold….The Beach and The Ocean… What a wonderful place! Home of some of the most beautiful creatures that ever lived. Dolphins, seahorses, starfish… Every color of the rainbow is found in these waters. And salt water-ahhhhhhhh… healing….and waves..crashing waves, mesmerizing, calming, peace-filled. The smell………………..YES! The smell………….. Seashells…I love to collect seashells. Often I go to this place in my mind to fill up on energy and peace, as I am landlocked in Tennessee. When I lived in Southern California a stroll on the beach was a joy and easy to accomplish. Now, once in a while we are able to physically go to “the beach” and it recharges my spirit.

I made this necklace to remind me of the bliss that the beach brings to me, with abalone, coral, a dolphin, a starfish…The turquoise stones represent some of the beautiful turquoise waters that I have witnessed Florida, Hawaii. Mexico… to the beach in my mind….
