Tiny Treasure #50

This is a milestone for me.
50 Tiny Treasures!
50 little masterpieces!

Well, they haven't all been masterpieces, but there have been many. More than if I hadn't begun this project of Tiny Treasures. More than if I had just washed the dishes and fixed dinner like so many women do - afraid to begin. Afraid to pick up that pastel. Afraid to pick up that pen to begin writing a story. Afraid.

I'm here to tell you that you don't need to be afraid. Take the first step in this wonderful journey that is LIFE! Live it. Today. Not tomorrow. You will thrill your soul. Your spiritual soul. Your child soul.

I have had a wonderful journey - and it just gets better and better as I experiment with color and different grounds. This pear is a good example of how a different "ground," or paper can make a huge difference in the look of your work.

Enjoy this small piece in the corner as it surprises you with more and more colors from many layers - each catching the light as it filters across it morning and evening.
