Another take on the word 'bloom'

This is a word image of "bloom" which was my focus word for 2009. I found it very rewarding to adopt a word for the year. As I focused on 'bloom' in 2009 I started to spend more time on my artwork and I even got up the nerve to start this blog. It seemed that my art "bloomed" during the year. Painting this image recently, I had fun remembering my art journey in 2009 and capturing the word in an unexpected way without flowers or other plants..... 

P.S. I got the idea of a focus word for the year from Christine Kane, and a word image from Laure Ferlita. My word for 2010 is Clarity, and I'm still working on that one!!!

Sunday morning in SLO

All is well.... a relaxing morning with my husband over a special cup of coffee at Peets in San Luis Obispo.... our college town many years ago...  But, this time we had returned to pick-up our middle son (and all of his stuff) so that he could venture abroad for a year of foreign study.
