I wonder, sometimes, as I sit down to paint and the trees begin to appear, if I’m really in a rut. “Really,” I ask myself and the brush as it paints in these strangely familiar trees, “really? The trees? Again?” And I hear in response, “Yes, Karen, the trees. Again. Just paint…”

Sometimes there just is no “why”. And sometimes the why is answered in the dancing.

About Karen

I am a fifty-something anthropology student, an artist, dancer, photographer, healer, mother, grandmother and perennial seeker. I am distracted by shiny things and infused with a sense of wonder at the world around me and people in general. I am a “journey” person who often wishes that I could have a “destination” day at least every now and then…
