Evolution of a collaged landscape


trees4, originally uploaded by susanwrites.

I wish I had thought to take pictures of the beginning but since this still has a ways to go to be finished, I thought I'd start documenting it now. This is all done with paper.

This project is teaching me a lot about scale (whoops) and that doing water is hard and that doing the leaves on trees is great therapy.

After I finish the leaves on the tree on the left I'll go back to the water and try to figure out how to improve the little rocks. Then some bushes scattered around.

There are so many stories only you can tell.Tell them, please.

It's lovely! The different greens are so soothing and soft, so serene. Makes me want to go sit under the tree and dabble toes in the water :)

Thank you. I'm in an ongoing class/workshop where I go a couple days of week. There are no formal lessons but if we need help or encouragement, our fearless leader is there.

Thank you, Kelly. I am so new at it and learning so much and boy, am I impatient. But it is a good thinking time to ponder plots and there are similarities in process that fascinate me.

I don't know about that but I'm having fun playing with it all. And it's really good thinking time.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
