Artist's Date #2

This morning I went to the Dallas Arboretum. I knew there wouldn't be a ton of flowers, but when I arrived I was disappointed in the amount of color I saw. I decided to make the most of the cloudy and cold day and explore anyway. What I found was how dramatic and jagged the tree branches were against the sky without the cover of leaves.

Small Inspirations

The butterfly garden is one of the most exhilerating and peaceful places I've been.

Ladder of Life

This is a painting I just finished for one of my favorite people, Kellye. We've done a lot of "work" together in an effort to learn about ourselves, live fully and in the present, and love completely. Thank you for the inspiration Kellye.

My First Artist's Date

In an effort to spend more time engaged in creative endeavors, I'm reading a book, "The Artist's Way" with my boyfriend. (I hate the word "boyfriend") Part of the process in this workbook is to take your inner artist on a date once a week. The purpose as I understand it, is to broaden my experiences, spend time doing something just for me and to get creatively inspired.

Today was my first of these dates. I'd heard that Dallas had a Hare Krishna temple with a wonderful vegetarian restaurant in it for many years now, but had never tried it. So off I went. The temple was beautiful and very ornate. I just caught the end of a prayer service, which was lovely. People in brightly colored robes were sitting in lotus position on the floor (shoes removed) and chanting what I percieved to be Hare Krishna scripture.

I then went to the restaurant and tried several new dishes for me. It was a buffet so I could afford to be "risky". The food was vegetarian Indian. Scrumptous rice pudding for dessert. I ate outside - which in Dallas was a beautiful 80 degree day - and enjoyed a tranquil meal in the courtyard by the water fountain.

I loved it! And I'm very pleased with my new experience in treating my inner artist to an adventure.

My first post

This year I've jumped on the whole New Year's resolution train and decided to "stretch" by sharing myself via a blog. Trixi is a nickname (from where or when I can't remember) and this is definitely a stretch to put some of my art out for anyone to see, so here we are. Happy New Year, and may 2006 be filled with challenges, rewards, discovery, love and connection.
