Yesterday I spent 2 hours with a local well-known artist in Florence, Ma learning new techniques for painting. I was having a hard time painting, feeling nearly bored with the same old, same old. I think it is called "Artist's Block!" I had the most wonderful time and the time went by like a flash. I was having so much fun, I hated to stop. When I arrived home, I changed my studio around so that I could make more room to work on larger canvases. I cannot tell you how much this 2 hour session energized me and woke me up. I have so many ideas that I want to express. Oh happy days!

I finished my Totem Animal Calendar way ahead of time due to some upcoming commitments. I didn't want to wait until the last minute and stress out. I haven't worked with pen and ink in a while, and it was fun and relaxing to draw this falcon. I chose the falcon because they are all about focus - strong, one-pointed focus. When they show themselves to us, we are being called to focus on our desires and our goals, and do what is necessary to bring our desires into our reality.

These are the end of the Spirit Card Deck. I am awaiting my deck to be returned to me. Now counting my own 3 cards, I should be receiving 33 Spirit Cards to complete a deck of 36 total. It will be fun to discover what other group members have created for my deck.
