Welcome to my blog // art project about the mix of things and places that make me smile.  I hope you have a nice stay!

Among the undefined, the unconventional and the uncertain

When life gets blurry it's a good time to revel in the mystery and energize the creative spirit. 

Here are a few pics from the Montana Art Walk at Shabby (so fun!!).  When people asked why my photographs had blurry elements, I used to be stuck for a reply (yes, people I do know how to focus my camera..).  It really is just an intuitive visual preference (i likie). Giving it more thought later, I realized it has something to do with how I see life as a dance of shifting energy - constant, rhythmic and unpredictable.  The 'blur' is my way of celebrating the beauty ingrained in uncertainty ♡ & embracing where it takes me ♥
