FLOURISH


Happy New Year !!!

I am sorry it took me so long to blog but I have been feeling a bit under the weather.  It has been a rough month or so.
I think I have to get the good Mojo going again. 
I did choose a word of the year and it will be....

Flourish
 (hence the above journal page)

 I want to flourish!!!! I want to boommmm with excitement. I want to grow and learn all that I can. I have such a hunger for art.  I want to learn everything I can! I want to thrive!!! I want to break open!!!!  And Flourish!!!

I can feel your energy, the excitement and I too share it with you. The pure joy that art gives the heart, the way it fills up your life. Learning, uncovering - growing - it is the most exciting journey one can undertake - here's to a great flourishing 2012.

Love your Flourish illustration. I can commiserate with you and being sick since my husband and I spent almost the whole month of December sick. Fortunately right now we are feeling much better. Glad you are as well! :-)

ger chouinard said...

Hey Heather! Hope you are feeling better. FLOURISH is an excellent word for 2012! LOVE your journal page. December is a tough month ... but looks like you are heading in the right direction with the right attitude. Thx for the inspiration. Happy PPF on Saturday!

EVA said...

I love your beautiful portrayal of FLOURISH! Not only does it mean thrive but all the curlykews (how does one spell that word?) etc are "flourishes". Your art already encompasses many and they are part of what I think makes your art extra charming. I look forward to seeing where it takes you!

Hope you have a fun and flourishing 2012!

Elisa Choi said...
