Dear Diary!


"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau

The “diaries” I keep are really affirmations and lessons that I am learning and learning how to share with others…

My dreams are many...my castle is built high in the sky and I am taking steps to place my foundation under it carefully cloud by cloud...Each day I learn a little more about myself and open up a little more. So really this 4 by 4 is a piece that offers up another cloud in my foundation...I have opened up a blog that has been closed (and only for me) for all to see and enjoy! You can view it here:
GIVING YOURSELF PERMISSION!

Artfully Yours,
Pattie

Patty...this is beautiful & wise. You have things in perfect order...castles (dreams) first, foundation second. As usual, your style is full of light & hope.

I love the quote and how it inspired this piece. Your castle is just gorgous. I love the fact it is both solid and strong, yet warming. :D

I'm also a huge fan of that quote. Discovered it over 20 years ago and it still sticks in my mind. A beautiful image to go with it.... By the way, I think you are a terrific foundation builder!

This is a fairy land, dreamy and allows the imagination to soar. I feel like I can step right into it...after I step off of the cloud of course!

Beautiful, as always.

This is lovely, it makes me want to snuggle into a cloud and dream the day away. I love the quote and the idea behind this piece, very magical.

Your vision, art and words allow us all to dream such wonderful dreams!

...and the reclusive writer and her Shrek-hearted lover lived happily ever after...in a land far far away...

When can we 'do lunch' in your wondrous air castle of dreams?

Beautiful artwork - thank you for sharing :D The castle is stunning...I drew a castle not so long ago for my step daughter to color in. They are such wonderful things to visualize.
