Bringing Vision to Light


I have a handful of projects that I can see clearly in my mind, but I struggle with how to birth them into being.  Two are quilt based – one based upon the wheel of the year and the other on the Celtic Wheel of Being.

The last is for above my fireplace to replace the outdated family photos.  I can picture a tree in black.  Not overly detailed, but large enough to fill the panel of the wall there.  Large trunk and gnarled branches reaching up all around.  I can’t describe it and I don’t know that I could draw it either.

The Artist’s Way is bringing these ideas back to the foreground for me and giving me (slightly) more courage to make them reality.

  1. Sounds very cool. Which one are we doing first?

    • The one based on the Celtic Wheel of Being. Oh, and one of the husband’s co-workers is an artist and he’s going to ask him if he would be interested in helping me with my tree project. First I’m going to work on a little rainbow colored thing for my mantle and the I’m going to work on getting my vision a bit clearer so that we can get to work straight away this fall. :0)
