I know, it’s been while but great things have been happening!! I took a little break from posting and have had my site updated and totally transformed into Art Photography, something I’ve been dreaming about for awhile. I decided it was time to take the dive!
Well, and it’s been a Soul urging to truly align and follow my heart and not keep saying one day!
I’ve started playing with Impressionistic and ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) and I am hooked and having so much fun!
Take a look on my new site of the Impressionistic. You can also check out the other Galleries here.
I love the freedom, the curiosity, the creativity, having to trust the process (as one never knows) and allowing myself to much more playful!
It leaves me feeling such Joy.
I love feeling Joy!
It made me ask, who told us to stop dreaming, grow up and be serious?
Do what brings you Joy s often as possible, that is where magic lies!
PS – I forgot to share I also have prints for sale now – click here, and all my books are still listed here, so check them out!!
I will be updating with new work at week, so subscribe or check back!

Ever since doing the 30 Day Photo Challenge, I felt there was something more, something different.
I saw this Tedx talk the other day – and I thought to myself what a great idea!!
For 365 days, this guy did something new every day, now that is stretching your growth, imagination and experiences for sure!!
So often, we get into the same old, same old every day – we go to work the same way, see the same people, eat at the same places etc
What have you been wanting to do that you haven’t done?
What have you been saying that ‘one day I’ll……..? (you fill in the space)
What have you ben wanting to do but are afraid, or fear what others may think? (as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else :))!
This is an invitation to step out of your comfort zone and do, try, eat, experience something new for the next 7 days.
You can keep it all to yourself or share it – but just do something!!
There are no rules, nothing is good / bad or right / wrong – with integrity of course 🙂
Each minute, each day gives us a fresh opportunity of a choice – we can keep choosing the same thing or experience from the buffet table of what life has to offer. If you don’t like it, now you know and don’t have to experience it again.
If you do like it, then you can have more of it – yet until you try it you will never know!
In the past week, here are a few of my new experiences –
ate Chilaquiles – a Mexican style breakfast, took a Spanish class (always one day), tried shooting 2 new ways and because of that I had to learn had to edit a new way (the above image), I painted my toenails Gold as I’v never done that always stayed with plain colors, sat and talked with my new bff the rooster and it was rather entertaining.
Ideas – but the list is endless
have a space day or even just a massage, pedi, mani or facial that you’ve always wanted to experience (male or female like why not??!)
spend an entire day at the beach
go to the park for a picnic
play pickle ball (or any other sport)
learn a second language
go out for lunch in that cafe you keep seeing
go to an art museum
sky dive (ok that might be extreme but why not??)
hot air balloon ride
take that trip you’ve always wanted to
try some food you’ve never tried (the list there could be endless)
got waxed – male or female
play an instrument
go for a long walk in nature
get some energy work done
have a reading by a psychic
talk to a stranger
take some pet supplies to the animal shelter
take food to the homeless
I could go on………..if not now, why?
The only time there is, is Now!
Create a fantastic magical day!!

After my 30 day self challenge and taking a break from being on the computer so much, I have been searching for some things – what kind of Art Photography do I really want to create.
So much of what I have created and still is in my mind to be created I realize has meaning, a different perspective and some sort of metaphor. It’s a way I get to intertwine my love for creativity, photography, art, quantum physics and more of the truth of who we really are.
I love to challenge myself to learn and grow and now that I am finally stepping more into the creative person I’ve always been, but have held it back for one day, the downloads of things I want to create is inspiring and a tad overwhelming as it’s coming in fast. lol
I also realize that I love a little diversity, not just in art, photography but also life.
I’ve been getting this urge to paint lately, so I took out what paint supplies I have with me from Canada and started playing, which btw I suck at. I couldn’t figure out why I was having this urge and then I discovered some Impressionist Photography and was blown away. I’ve tried in many years ago, but now it seemed different – painting with my camera – so very cool!
I share that with you as a little nudge in your life of do you follow the energy of what is being given to you, even if it doesn’t make sense at the time or do you dismiss it?
Sometimes it leads us to some great things that we could have never ‘thought’ about with our limited thinking.
Our mind is our computer that only knows how to regurgitate what it already knows.
Sometimes in life, we feel lost, confused or can’t see the next step,
that is when we need to trust and really listen to our own guidance,
It may not make sense at the time,
as it’s usually beyond the mind
and ends up even better than we could imagine.

it was created for fun and to see if I could – all about learning new skills
you could take a magical mystery tour,
where would you go?
That is what is so cool about imagination!!

When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone?
Or just let your mind wonder off into dreams, other possibilities, been playful or had that childlike sense of wonder……….

The box represents mediocrity, conformity and security,
The truth is,
You were never born to be in a box,
break free and listen to your heart,
it’s knows the truth of you!
