I often think about the friends I have made along my art journey, and it is always exciting when someone influences us in such a way that we want to be better, do better, and be true to ourselves and to our work. This is not always easy for anyone.

I wanted to share a recent video that artist Henry Li has created. My first experience with Henry was when I purchased rice paper from his online store a couple of years ago. I love to use it in my bottle art and my shrine work. I hope to take his online class some day soon! It is so enjoyable to draw from different kinds of art, there is so much to learn, and each of these lessons can be translated into our work.
Beside my home, we have a beautiful wetlands, and there are these beautiful white birds that are called Egrets that come and visit all the time! The are so majestic, and sometimes we forget to look at such little things and what they can teach us!
These birds are everywhere the wetlands are! We also have turkey vultures, black birds, sometimes we'll see a magpie or two, and lot's of bluebirds! Such a great subject to study and paint and draw.
