Camino de Santiago 2016

Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek

Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.

February Bead Journal Piece

I finally got my February piece photographed, although I wasn't able to achieve the actual color.  The main coloring is more of a teal than the photo shows.  I stuck with my theme of ancient native art, again using rock art found in the southwest as inspiration.  The teal is again outside of my color comfort zone.  The cold February winds inspired the "lazy stiches" in the design. 


  1. I enlarged the picture so I could get a really good look at your work. Its just beautiful. I love the teal and it is definitely a comfort color for me. I like your choice of background too.

  2. Very nice! and I like how you mounted on canvas..nice job!

  3. I think it's fabulous! It's hard for me to believe that teal is outside *anyone's* comfort zone...and you've done so well with it :-)

  4. Wow, your work is truly awesome! I especially like the Wild Woman of the West, gorgeous.

  5. I am in are so talented! Beautiful piece!
