Music

I love to make art for my friends. This one is for my pal Nimia and is inspired by her favorite quote, 

"To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable." ~ Aaron Copeland

Even slightly abbreviated, this phrase had LOTS of letters in it. And both doodles were hard for me, but I am always up for a challenge (for my patience and my shaky hand ! Lol).

Let's look for ways to celebrate the little things and cultivate that fun feeling. Take a photograph ! Write a happy encounter down ! Dance to encourage yourself or with a friend !

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

Official

Throwback Thursday to when I registered Can I Color Now Studios for incorporation, for the second year in a row. (Yay, taxes. Lol)

But seriously, it does feel good to have something on paper saying, yes, you exist, you function, keep doing what you're doing.

Free sticker to anyone who can guess/remember/research how long CICNS has actually been in existence.... (Hint, longer than two years.)

"Higher Ground" at GDP Show

"The strength that you need / has been with you all along. This is simply the moment / to prove it."

~from "Soar," a poem by yours truly

"Higher Ground" begins with this poem and the dance further elaborates the story of how connection, forgiveness, and trust can bring a new perspective into one's life.

I performed a solo rendition of this piece at Gwinnett Dance Project's showcase, "Home." Thankful for the opportunity to represent Cherish Dance and for all the other artists who made the night so special !
