Where have I been?

Oh I am such a busy girl these days that my poor blog has become much neglected. The trouble is that there are just way too many distractions. I've been spending hours on Facebook groups - tut tut! I've been painting, adventuring in other dimensions, writing a vampire story, learning, reading and today I've done some gardening (and am feeling a little worse for wear as the thorns and insects scored my skin with their displeasure at my disturbing their summertime slumbers with my hedge-trimmer, secateurs and digging implements!). I've also got to level 96 on Candy Crush, but really that's nothing to be proud of! Frankly there just aren't enough hours in the day for blogging too, and when I write for a living, sometimes it's just too much to think up fancy paragraphs when a sentence will usually suffice on Facebook!

I have to say that sometimes, as much as I love it, sometimes social media can just get a little bit too overwhelming! It's also expensive. All those music, art supply and book recommendations are costing me a fortune!

However, without it I would not be the social butterfly I am. How could I keep up with my worldwide tribes of like-minded artistic souls? Today I am sharing another collaboration art journal set of pages. The theme of the latest of these is The Goddess - she who is Mother to earth, nurture, love, growth. The Goddess has been appearing in my artwork with increasing regularity over the few weeks, so it was kismet that She should be with me this week.


A collaborative piece. An earlier artist(s) created the background and drew the figure. I coloured in her face.


  1. Beautiful work. The chakra's have been speaking to me lately in serendipitous ways. Will see what comes from that. Yes It is hard to blog, do art, keep up with like minded souls/artists you love and tutorials. Ah the inspiration that comes from you Lisa is stellar.

  2. You said it ! There are so many ways to keep in touch that there is no time left to write in our own blogs.
    I spend so much time commenting on so many blogs...then I don't have anything left to say.
    I love the theme of your art today.

  3. hello,

    lovely to see your wonderful goddess pieces
    a joy to see ~

  4. I completely understand....I think everyone is leaning toward the quicker, simpler methods of "connecting".
    Blogs may soon be the dinosaurs of social networking....

    Vampire story, huh?! My ears perked up at that news :)

  5. I know where you're coming from. FB is such a drain (G+ & twitter aren't quite as bad). I have deleted my account in the past, but nowadays everything seems to be organised on there so I had to rejoin or miss out on gatherings. As for blogs, I'm having to get used to making time for it again.
    Fantastic artwork, I love work that has a story and a connection.

  6. We are so living the same life right now lol..(is a candy crush veteran, level 165!)
    Your Goddess images are totally awesome! :D XXX

  7. really like your chakra goddess.

  8. Its lovely to see you posting again. I just love that first Goddess,fantastic hair.

  9. "Adventuring in other dimensions" sounds very intriguing...!

    I'm not a lover of FB (apart from the tiny corner of it that is our journal group, of course!), but I seem to have gathered as many other things that take up just as much time/energy!

    I love your loose, free, vibrantly colourful goddess paintings, they're beautiful x


Thank you for your comments - I always love to hear what you think :)
