Finding Water

This morning my eleven year old daughter and I sat at the kitchen table and did our morning pages together. The big window looks out over the pasture (very green this time of year) and the beautiful snow-capped mountains. Such a nice start to the day.

I did my morning pages every morning this week and added responses to the Divining Rod sections in the evenings. I was going to go to an antique store on Friday for my Artist Date, but really just wanted to stay home and work in the studio all day, so that's what I did. I did go out one afternoon and take some pictures outside that I thought maybe I could use in my digital artwork, so I guess I'll count that. I'll make it to the antique store this week, camera in hand.

I haven't gotten as much chance to check in with other people's blogs as I'd have liked, so that's on the agenda for this week. As of right now I have no daytime commitments this week, which means lots of time in the studio! Yay!

I have noticed that I seem more full of ideas and energy for creating. Many others have mentioned the same thing. I know Katie was drawing both yesterday and today. This weekend was full for me with mom stuff--the two older kids had basketball games yesterday and all three went to a birthday party today--so I didn't get to the studio at all.

Teenage boy is waiting for his turn on the computer--more later.

Well Done for doing your morning pages... I'm still moaning about doing mine at the moment.
I think the fact that you AND your daughter are doing them is beautiful.

I think it's so wonderful that you're doing morning pages with your daughter!

I've been experiencing the same increase of creative ideas and energy after starting Finding Water . . . it's great isn't it?
