 For several years now I have been fortunate to be involved in Round Robin Art Journal creations. At first, I have to admit, I was dragging my feet a bit. Wondered just how much fun it could be to do a different journal of someone else's every month.

Well, now I am a convert. The journal on the left is the last one that came to me for this year of 2021. The pages seemed to have an awful lot of birds displayed so I thought they probably needed a tree. 

Thus, my own contribution...a place of rest for all the birds. And a bit of rest for all of us participants til next year's Round Robin.

 This angel of thanksgiving has arrived just a little bit early. Grateful for rain however light or heavy, she just decided to arrive as a treat before the ghouls show up for Halloween.

Other gratitudes that I share with her are for the joys of living here on this beautiful coast, getting to the booster of Covid vaccines, time with family and friends, GREAT groups for mixed media workshops, the blessing of pre-sales even before the Sawdust's Winter Fantasy begins,  the opportunities to give back through the Sawdust Art Enrichment Fund, and soooo much more. 

Life is good!

I wake happy. 
Starting out happy just seems to set things up for the rest of the day to me.

So this is all by way of a small explanation for why I call my workshops "playtime." One of our greatest gifts is the ability to play and while art like so much else can be pretty serious stuff, to play at art opens up exploration and experiments galore.


So playtime it is and there is another mixed media playtime workshop on the calendar for October 24th that is filled with some new and old playmates. I am really looking forward to the fun.
