April Showers – Free Art

April Showers 2022

I have been working ahead of schedule, so there’s no excuse for this being late. I am sorry! Time simply got away from me. Spring is my favorite time of year, even though my allergies start up. I will endure the sneezing for the beauty that unfolds.

During this particular year, I have been attending a Psalm study group, and we decided to learn about 6 different Lenten characters. I was in charge of finding music for each person, and it has been a riot! I have learned SO MUCH. This week was Mary, Jesus’ bio mom. Let me tell you, there was not a dry eye in the Zoom. We were all so moved. I’m still choked up!

Although I am religious and spiritual, I haven’t always considered myself a Jesus person. After experiencing the Black Lives Matter movement during the pandemic, I have an even better sense of who Jesus was, and what he was all about then, and what he should be about now. The stories are such interesting to consider in historical context, and in today’s world.

I think I find this to be true of any great leader throughout history, to be honest.

My art this month is pretty lighthearted, and all about waiting for those Spring and Summer flowers. And Easter candy. And bunnies. Oh, how I love Reece’s chocolate eggs!!! And dyeing eggs. Carved Ukrainian Easter Eggs. Scandinavian Easter Trees. Oh, how I love this time of year.

What’s your favorite Easter candy?

March Musings – Free Art

March Musings 2022

March for me means several things. The end of February. The Ides of March. In like a lion, out like a lamb. More snow. St. Patrick’s Day. Irish fiddle tunes. The anniversary of my 12-step recovery. It will be 3 years. The season of Lent. Easter, depending.

This year, Easter is in April. I’m part of a group who is going to study a few people of the Lenten story. I’m researching songs and music that correlate with each person. Mary Magdalene has a lot of songs written about her. Do you have a character in the crucifixion story that you’ve always wondered about?

Back to fiddling and St. Patty’s day, do you have a favorite Irish tune?

Flirty February Free Art

Flirty February Art

As soon as Christmas is over, my brain goes right to Valentine’s Day. So I’ve been looking forward to seeing this one on my computer every day of the month.

Do you have big Valentine’s Day plans? Anti-Valentine’s Day plans? My mom’s birthday is the day before, so I usually spend the week trying to share love with her. We have dark chocolate, fancy kombucha, and bison to enjoy so far.

Happy New Year & Jump into January 2022 – Free Art

Happy New Year’s Eve, my friends!

I just got the news about Betty White. The upside – the Golden Girls are finally together again. The downside – Betty didn’t make it to 100. She was a treasure though. I’ll be in denial for a while. 

This year has had MANY great moments. On the other hand, it’s been filled with so many hardships. As Glennon Doyle has said, “We can do hard things.” The past two years have shown us this, if nothing else. We are capable of so much more than we know. We also need to prioritize ourselves in order to help others. This has never been so clear. 

Do you have any new intentions for 2022?

I am going to make art every day in 2022, and share it here. That’s my intention. That’s my action. I am also going back to school. I have to have a balance between creating and learning. I’m planning to launch on Twitch, and make some haiku videos this year, too.

Divine December – Free Art

I’m both surprised it’s almost December, and excited for this particular holiday season. It’s nearly time for Sanka Lucia, the bringer of light, to bring strong coffee, saffron buns, and other Scandinavian treats. The night gets dark sooner, but before we know it, Spring will be around the corner. I try to extend this season as long as possible. 

What is your favorite part of this time of year?

Thankful – Free November Wallpaper

Thankful – Free November 2021 Art


I have a daily gratitude practice, so November is extra thankfulness. I have collected journal books for years and years. I have only ever fully completed ONE journal though, and I just finished it! It’s one from Dollar Tree, which I collaged a lot of different magazine cutouts into, and it has a bunch of 2020 New Yorker Covid-19 pictures. Which is interesting to look back on now. I have my first “bullet” type journal, which I’ve been using as a weekly brain dump, and to collate various bits of things I need to remember.

What are you thankful for?

Do you have journals? How do you use them?
