Beautiful backgrounds for you to enjoy

Sunshine warmed my toes on my back porch this afternoon - it was a beautiful day for getting outside and throwing some paint around...and after I threw, here's what I got back from the paint goddesses...

There are just one layer - the beginning layer of my new art project - I asked the universe what my guiding word for this year is - and what I got back was focus.

 I'm thinking every day on this word...I suspect it means more than it seems.  It turns and swirls every day, bringing me more things to consider, more joys to revel in.

I think focus means to choose what art project I most enjoy, and to pursue it with relish and abandon to its richest conclusion.  Not let myself get sidetracked, sideswiped, sidelined.  See what mysteries will be unfolded to my newly opened eyes.  These paintings, just the first layer, are part of that focus.

Practicing yoga, freedom, self acceptance, non-judgment, honesty, contentment, peace.  And layers that will continue to unfold throughout the year.

Please feel free to download the backgrounds in this post for your own creative endeavors!  Just leave me a comment and let me know what wonders your new art year is unfolding.  Sharing is caring!
