Hello everyone! I haven't posted for quite sometime. I had carpel tunnel surgery and my right hand is just now beginning to function.
With so much time on my hands, no pun intended, I've had to much time to contemplate my life, how I fit in this universe and how would I like to proceed.

I have been questioning my art work and what I want to say, as well as what type of medium. Loving so many mediums makes it difficult to focus.

Lately I have done a lot of observing. Taking lots of photos along the way. Hope you enjoy them.



  1. I missed your Sunday morning posts. Glad things are getting better. Welcome back.

  2. Oh I can relate so much with your post.
    I have been gone from online for so long, that I am now hic-upping back into the world of the internet.
    Like you I have so many loves for so many mediums, I just confuse myself. I hope you will find your unique way of expressing your art and your creativity! I might one day, too :)

  3. Happy to hear you are healing.
    Beautiful pictures.
    Hugs :)

  4. Beautiful photography - observation and contemplation sound like perfect activities while you are healing. I know what you mean about so many mediums and so many choices, but I'm sure that the journey will make itself known to you in its own good time.

  5. First, thank you so much for letting me know that you are reading my blog posts from Homestead National Monument. While I write mostly for myself as a way to document my life and artwork (so that I can look back to gauge progress and as a form of accountability to my own goals), there is still a tiny voice in the back of my mind saying, "Susan, no one ever reads this stuff". It's nice to know that voice is wrong! I love art residencies because they make me question my work as well. That quiet, still time is so valuable. Artists really need it. I'm so sad that some of your contemplative time was the result of surgery but I'm glad you are on the mend. By the way, I adore the pressed flowers. There is something so ethereal in the captured beauty of a simple blossom when rendered flat. I don't know why that is ... but flattened they seem even more delicate. Yours look particularly pretty.

  6. Hope your hand is healing nicely. I think it's always useful to step back and reflect from time to time. It's hard to focus when you are interested in so many techniques but follow your heart and do what feels right. Lots of love xxx

  7. Hi Susan... I hope your wrist is healing and I do agree. Having time to think and reflect (even if forced upon us) can be a good thing. I wish you all the best.

  8. Such beautiful photos , I love your pages, and the observations you did, in wonderful nature.
    Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog .
    Greetings, Dorthe

  9. So recognizable what you say here Susan. I hope that through observing you will be able to find your path. Beautiful nature inspired artwork and photos! Big hugs xx
