Cyanotype Sunrise bursts onto the scene

My writing is all but buried within my art these days, and has been for quite some time. Things I used to say in words I now put into my paintings and sometimes I talk about that and most of the time I don’t. I’ve been busy with my new Instagram; I say busy but … Continue reading

Part of me has gone there to stay

I met Optimus Prime, yesterday, thanks to my eight year old son who invited me to the most recent Transformers movie. I admit, the ONLY reason I agreed to go to the movie yesterday was to spend two hours sitting beside my son and to do something he wanted to do that appeared to make … Continue reading

Love is a renegade word

One month since my last post. In that time, I have continued to attend art festivals such as Galveston Food & Wine Festival. The travel schedule can be a little intense and I am resting today. Resting in bed, my favourite place from where to write a blog. Rarely am I resting in bed with … Continue reading

The Auspicious Invitation

My feelings of abandonment are subtle. I see it in relationships. I can’t say I feel overwhelmingly abandoned, it is subtle. Like a ghost from the past. I am glad to be adopted, grateful. It is the only way I can imagine my life. It feels safe. And yet I am caught in between worlds … Continue reading

Make a life you love

I’ve taken about ten steps back from social media, recently, with the thought of making available more time to paint. Two and a half years ago, I went back to school for my real estate license. I sold a few houses. I gave away about thirty paintings, then I sold a painting. Then, I sold … Continue reading

Our lives are separate, but that is an illusion

Yesterday, I was outside in my bikini enjoying the sunshine in 70 degree weather. Today, it is rainy and cold. The contrast has my hands cold. I have my hat on, now, and a great big sweatshirt. It is January, after all. This is to be expected. Yesterday was not expected. And for that, I … Continue reading

I wish for you much happiness in 2014

Me: I feel like I’m aging. Someone else: Camille, we’re all getting older every day. Different conversation .. Someone else: You live in fantasy, you don’t always live in reality. Me (thinking to myself): That makes sense .. I prefer it that way. Oh, I have missed writing my blog. I have missed my readers … Continue reading

A breath of life

I have been travelling further into the season that I thought I would. I thought my travel would go through October and into the middle of November but I find myself still travelling. In the last two weekends, I have been to Galveston, Shreveport, Houston, then back to Shreveport again. I am grateful for the … Continue reading

One door closes, another opens

I am a wimp for cold water but I don’t mind cold rain or cold air on my face. I looked out across the pool today. I swam outside. When I arrived, steam was rising off of the water. I don’t keep up with outdoor temperature or even most weather, but I do notice the … Continue reading

Have I mentioned I dislike the cold?

I saw Brandon Belt at Lowe’s recently. He is the only professional baseball player I know, aside from Derek Jeter. They are the only baseball players I would recognise, anyway. Derek Jeter, because he was on Saturday Night Live a long time ago when I watched tv and because he reminds me of someone I … Continue reading
