Invite Peace

I've always avoided making New Year's resolutions. Why risk the guilt? But when one of my friends on Facebook (You know who you are Lauri P.) posted an article entitled "20 Ways to Add More to Your Life" by Dr. Frank Lipman, it inspired me. I like the idea of seeking more of the positive things life has to offer, and less of the negative.
This morning after reading the list again I selected some of the items and used the term 'invite' as in 'opening the door' allowing these things to come and go in my life.
The resulting journal illustration is mixed media including markers, watercolor pencil, oil pastel, decorative papers and ink.
Once again, inspiration is all around us all the time, just waiting to be recognized and asked to play. Thanks for sharing the article Lauri.

Interesting article.Like the journal too :)
I don't really make resolutions either-more like goals I try to accomplish or at least contemplate ;)

I like this -- I like how you did something you don't normally do (make resolutions) -- and beautifully illustrate the magic of intent!
