the Universe steps in

Most of my adult life, not all of it but most of it, I have played it safe - all my duckies in a row.  My daytime job as an Office Manager is in alignment.  I'm not saying this is a bad trait, because it isn't, at all.  It has and continues to be a good characteristic that I possess.  I just want something more in my art.   I said in my opening statement of my blog that I want to let my creative spirit out to play

So... I have been journaling about it and I'm asking the Universe for guidance.  I'm learning to pay attention to the ways I may be guided.   Here is a quick sketch (remember I'm new to this) that I did yesterday on my lunch break at work. I gave myself 15 minutes.  Notice the right side of her face?  That is the Universe stepping in.  I was going to make a correction to her eye because I wanted it to look just like the other one, the eraser had ink on it which created a big smear.  It took me only a moment to realize the Universe was veering me from the "straight laced way" in which my drawings have been to something more creative.  So I smeared more ink. This is a HUGE step for me!! I was so inspired by "stepping out of the box" that I started another piece last night that had me up til 1:30 am.  I'll post it when I'm finished.
Thanks for sharing this journey with me. 
It wouldn't be as much fun to do it alone.
Your support and encouragement fuels me to keep creating.


  1. the first thing i tell my drawing students is that they have permission to make mistakes- it is just paper. they can't hurt it! worst case scenario- it can go in the recycle bin. once they give up the fear, very few end up there though, so just draw it :)

  2. Your artwork amazes me. It is so wonderful. And your spirit! Oh. My.
    Love how you are letting the Universe guide you. What a great example ...for me.
