"in the rose-pink clouds"

A poem I wrote for my grandmother, who passed away in 2015...

"in the rose-pink clouds"

"...tell me how this life will form
the next life
and tell me how they never end..."

April Art Prompt

April showers bring May flowers, but what's stopping you form growing now ??

Often, if we can identify the things that aren't working well for us, it's so much easier to remember the things that help us flourish.

Ah yes, that self-care routine. That workout soundtrack. Oh hey, what's my awesome friend up to, that I haven't talked to in eons.

So this is our April Prompt :

Figure out what helps you grow and capture it through any medium you enjoy--photography, doodle, dance, song, etc.

And don't forget to tag us when you share your #canicolornowmoment. We'd love to hear from you and help fill the world with more art.

Poignant

At Cherish Dance, we often leave time to doodle and chat at the end of rehearsal.

It's a special time when we get to relax, cool down, and share a little bit about what's going on with our week.

It's a simple few minutes, when I've gotten to know my dancers in a way I wouldn't have otherwise.

I'm thankful for their trust and laughter and for the chance to be both silly and serious with them.

(Fun fact: This doodle was started way back in February of 2021. Since the goal isn't really about finishing, but exploring, I'm glad this one took the long way.)

3 Doodles

Ahh. The relaxing feeling of doodling.

All three of these are for my friend, Jacquelyn Pritz, whose quotes were so lovely, I couldn't pick just one.

The second print is Tagalog, meaning "kindred spirit, neighbor, or fellow humans."

Hence, the simple ovals looped together.

Hope you're having a very sunny Saturday.




Originals available. $10 each.

I love these little flowers I made, painting next to my daughter at the kitchen table. They are small and fragile, as the title hints at…
