The Muse Comes in the Most Unusual Way

A couple of months ago I had a dream. It was of a painting - a non-objective painting that I created. After I woke, I thought I would shake it off but the painting sits in my mind daily. Last week, I purchased a 36"x48" canvas and I spent a few hours yesterday and today working on it. I plan to make more time for it tomorrow. I don't know where this will lead me, if anything, but the desire to make it is so strong. The Muse wants me to.

I have put photography on hold. I was not liking where things were going with it, so I thought if I put it on the back burner, The Muse will come to me when she is ready.

It's rainy and the leaves are almost al fallen off the trees and onto the ground. I love kicking the piles of them when I walk down the sidewalks. I used to do it when I was a little girl and the smell of wet or dry, crunchy Autumn leaves always makes me smile. I do know that Winter will be upon us soon and if it will be like it was last year, then we'll be hit hard but right now, I want to hang on to this.

The holidays are also almost here. Making new traditions and trying to break old habits. Am I growing up? Maybe, but the little girl is still there :)
