I’m going to miss this view.

I’m moving.

We found and fell in love with a little house down the street and decided is was the perfect abode for us. So, after a month or so of learning everything there is to know about buying a home and signing a lot of pieces of paper, the house is ours.

Now comes the fun part, right?

There’s not a room in the house that doesn’t need something done to it. But, lucky for us, the house is in tremendous shape and the only “to dos” involve paint, cabinetry, and floors. Fun for the want to be interior designer in me. So, she’ll have fun.

One thing I will miss about this apartment of ours is the view. Our balcony sits on a city park which, when you look out the window, feels like you’re looking into a landscape all your own.

And, on some nights, the sunset is splendid.

Sunsets are one of the reasons cameras were invented, I just know it.

It’s amazing what new vantage points you’ll find for a photograph as you chase a 15 month old around the house. I found this composition as I watched my little one climb up and down the bed to pet the dog.

I’m liberating my art.

This year I was happy to discover and join Liberate Your Art. It combines two of my favorite things: mail and art!

I also agree that we need more art in the world and I can’t wait to see what other folks around the globe have been up to in their art studios.

I’m curious who out there is going to receive my art postcard and what they’ll think of it. It’s kind of fun thinking I probably won’t ever find out. But, there will be 6 folks out there that receive a postcard with my artwork on top of it! And, maybe a few mail people will enjoy seeing the colorful faces as they sort the mail.
