"My Muse..."

...has been busy, lately, dancing like no one is watching
and
cultivating artistic thoughts of Spring
in her mind...:)
Illustration Friday: "Cultivate"

"Our happiness
depends on the habit of mind we cultivate.
So practice happy thinking every day.
Cultivate the merry heart,
develop the happiness habit,
and
life will become a continual feast."
~Norman Vincent Peale

...happy thinking; a good one to endorse, every day. Good on Norman. Great art margaret; again so vibrant. Do you watercolour over your ink; or ink over your watercolour? I tend to drown out the ink sometimes and lose the clarity. Also what 'ink' are you using ... a pen of which type? Looking for your tips since I admire your art so ...

That's quite the headdress!! I hope she doesn't get a bee in her bonnet. If she does, I hope she practices being happy so it doesn't bother her!!

I love your whimsical ladies, and this quote is perfect for us all.♥

You sure have a variety of muses to inspire you!!! Mine is taking a break apparently, or on vacation! I posted a pick of my migraine aura today, you might find it interesting since I know you battle the same thing.
