Simple little ones

It’s a sweet inward time for me right now: I’ve been reading about and meditating on simplicity, clearing my closets and drawers of the non-essentials and saying no to social opportunities to create more quiet opportunities to care for myself and work on my art. Saying no–well really, no thanks–is initially awkward but ultimately liberating. Here are a few recent small works inspired by the local Gainesville, FL Sweetwater Wetlands Park.

    Sara,

    My social calendar may be lighter than yours, but I am doing the same! Feeling the need to get all things balanced and in order. My book club is reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, a book which speaks of the value of de-cluttering one’s life among other things. Other good advice included.

    On this happy heart’s day I must tell you that I love all your paintings and seeing your pictures makes my heart happy! Love that prairie. Happy Valentine’s Day!

      Thank you Wendy, I read that book last year and really enjoyed it! My latest inspiration is “Essentialism” — also a good read but admittedly less personal than The Happiness Project.
