I got this from the Kripalu website. They got it from Colors in Motion.

All I know is that I felt relaxed after I watched it. So, if you need a moment to yourself, just put it on full screen and unwind.

Workin' The Canvas

I picked up a bunch of canvases over the weekend and started laying down the paint.

I'm working on three of them. Usually, I have a clear idea of what I'm going to paint, but I've been taking a more spontaneous approach lately. I've even gone as far as simply closing my eyes and blindly picking a paint color. Basically, I'm giving myself up to the fun of improvisation!

Obviously, the paintings are in their infancy right now. I'm looking forward to seeing where they end up.

I recently painted the one below with my cousin Brianna (she's 3 1/2). She happily smeared paint all over the canvas. I think her favorite part, however, was spraying the canvas with water. She couldn't get enough of that. My favorite part was listening to her explain (very seriously) to Jonathan about each step we took to create the painting. It was really, really cute.

I've been on vacation, spending my days with family and friends.

There was the roasting of marshmallows...

And the enjoyment of s'mores...

Followed by the eventual marshmallow-in-hair experience.

There was also the working at GenCon peddling both Stratego...

And Stomple...

All while fighting beholders and dire wolves and giant, ugly trolls.

Mainly, though, it was great passing time with my husband, my parents and my bestest, little friend while enjoying the beauty of summer.
