AEDM Day 30: The End, and the Beginning...

      I have had an amazing time participating in Art Every Day Month! What a fantastic idea, to get a huge group of creative people into their studios and creating on a daily basis. The journey has been difficult, frustrating, exciting and challenging, I am sure I have only begun to see the far reaching effects this will have on my life as an artist. All I do know for sure right now is this;

I will get into my studio on a regular basis. Perhaps not daily, life just doesn't work that way, but often.
I will make the commitment to treat my art seriously, not just squeeze it in when it is convenient.
I will trust that I am right where I need to be.
I will start to show my work to other people, with the ultimate goal of gaining recognition as an artist. Validation!

Thank you all for this wonderful month and all your beautiful support! Keep flying, keep dreaming and, above all, keep creating! Enjoy...

I created this collage using Picasa 3, which is a free download, and very easy to learn. Thank you Deborah Velasquez, for the inspiration for this piece. You are right, it is hard to do, but once you learn it, you get it! 


  1. How is everyone making these collages?! I love them. They are works of art in themselves. Congrats on sticking with it and creating so many beautiful things!

  2. This is so beautiful!! Great work! ANd i love the quote in your banner... all art requires courage. Damn right. :-)
    Glad we shared the AEDM journey together - I'll be back.

  3. You are an artist!!! Your work is amazing - your collage of AEDM is stunning!

  4. rmack, I am sorry, I should have mentioned it in my post. I downloaded Picasa online, (it's free) and they offer a collage option. There are different choices, a pile of pictures, even squares, or this random one I created. I got this one together in less than 30 minutes and I have never played with the program before. It is very well designed and easy to learn.

  5. I just discover your blog and I like it ... I´ll follow you ...have happy times !
