War Horse On The Stage

It has been awhile since I have been completely blown away by a stage performance...but War Horse was absolutely AMAZING, powerful, moving and original! Nick Stafford adapted the story to the stage (premiering in 2007) from Michael Morpurgo's1982 best selling novel. Two thumbs up and 5 stars is this girls vote! I now know and understand what all of the hype is about regarding this show!
About to go in to the Paramount up in Seattle! Finally!!! I get to see the show and cash in on a ticket that I received as one of my presents this last Christmas.

My father and I took a quick snapshot at the intermission.

I have yet to see Steven Spielberg's (2011) film or read the book that started inspired this amazing show, but I am so glad that my first experience was watching it live on really can't beat that first impression!

Go see it as soon as you get the chance!

Snapshots and Sketches

Wow, it's been awhile! Life has been crazy...good! So much to be thankful for! Lots of music performances and travels for 2013 and they are fast approaching! I just got back from Ft. Polk, LA to visit loved ones and I can't wait to go to Hawaii at the end of next week!!! I had an amazing weekend with more loved ones and an art shopping trip to Daniel Smith in Seattle...needless to say that my eyes weren't big enough for my head when I walked into this store! Haha! It's amazing how inspired I became just by being around supplies!! Thank you Robin for introducing me to this place!

I have been doodling and sketching and collaging like crazy ever since!

Quotes and words of inspiration seem to be the center of my thoughts. I don't have any agenda other than to let my mind go and to try and create/ stay in a creative mindset as much as possible.

A word or two (or three) seem to come to me daily/weekly that I like to ponder...
I can't stress enough the importance of carrying a camera AND/or a sketchbook with you at all times!!! You never know when inspiration will hit you! I can't even begin to count how many sketchbooks I have!!!
Fuzzy slippers to keep my toes warm this winter...
Leftover mini pumpkins...why does it seem everything is cuter in a "mini" version?
My beloved I miss you!

A quick snapshot/self portrait that I felt captured me for the day!
