artist's date picnic

i've been enjoying kimberly wilson's tranquilista e-course very much.

i've also been having a blast playing with my visual journal.

if you know kimberly, then you know she's a big fan of 'omwork.' omwork is what kimberly coined is homework with a yogic twist. so, it's beneficial and fun!

during our most recent class, part of our 'omwork' was to go on an artist's date. i realized that i haven't gone on an artist's date in a very long time.

so, i gathered my gear and headed for my backyard
a nice lunch
a nice view
and a good companion for a lovely afternoon. (now, i realize that an artist's date is supposed to be solo, but i don't think i'll get any complaints for my date)
and let the creativity flow
of course there was much snuggling
and kisses
(and yes, that is a roll of toilet paper you see there... between all of the allergies & recent nose bleeds i figure i'd better be prepared -boo!)

cadyn and i had a wonderful artist's date - just the two of us.

What a splendid(!) artist's date ... just the two most wonderful beings! what a sweetie cadyn is, to cherish :)

LOVE the visual journal -- progressing so authentically and colorfully. You are so brave to post a page of your writing.

See you most certainly for next week's om work.

all the best!

That looks so relaxing. I think the next nice warm day I am going to spread out a blanket and take myself on an artist date;) Oh and by the way, I love that purple in your hair. Did you do it? as soon as the wedding is over in july , I am going to have some purple!!

What a great idea - going to your own backyard for an artist date! Double sweet to have a four-legged one to snuggle with.

Looks like a perfect artists date - and isn't it great to be able to sit outside. Love the summer (apart from the allergies!).

Artist Date-- I used to have those all of the time. I miss them.
I'm glad you're enjoying the e-course. I'm thinking about taking it the next go round. :0)

There is nothing like "doggie snuggle time"--that's what I call my doggie-whiny voice that I use!!!

What a LOVELY Artist date!
