      Good morning Margaret, I hope that your creative juices are flowing. I will be checking out your site next. I recall you saying that you would be focusing on your painting for the month of January….Enjoy. Janet 🙂

    Thank you, Janet, for the continued inspiration. ❤ Although I'm not applying it to painting, it definitely factors into my music. 🙂 I hope you are well and painting magical hummingbirds all over the place!

      Thank you Timi…. I am painting up a storm…along with hummingbirds, lots of portraits and landscape. Off to France on Feb 25th where I plan to do a lot of that. Keep making beautiful music and the world will be a better place for it. Janet :)x

    So good to read this beautiful description of the process. And the amazing thing about this process. is that when we spread our wings and rise a bit, we are able to see our own lives too in a much better perspective and be happy. Your pictures thrill me, Janet.

      Good morning Shimon, Thank you for this comment. and yes I plan to spread my wings more this year. I notice that every new experience brings with it insight into my own reactions, and the world in general. Exciting stuff. I hope that you and dear Nechama enjoy a lovely day filled with creativity. 🙂 x

    Oooh! Pardon my gushing, but I love this post Janet. I always enjoy your progress or step-by-step posts, but you outdid yourself with this one. We seem to be in sync about the seed of an idea and building it. “Playing is a key element in revealing vital clues” is also so very true. When I give myself permission to play (remove the limits from my imagination, as I call it), that’s when it gets flowing. Thank you for this wonderful uplifting post. Hummingbird hugs!

    Marvelous post, and as always, your paintings just grab the eye and don’t let go! This blog is truly a visual oasis – sometimes I just stop by to soak in the art!
