Welcome friends! Thanks for checking out my new creative space! Tonight
I sit with my littlest baby on my lap while typing. She turns her head and
looks at the computer screen and then her head swivels around and she looks at me. Her big brown eyes meet mine and I notice her long eyelashes and dimpled smile. My heart is filled at the moment.
I have been doing a lot of contemplating about my priorities and what is
important in my life. And I know this is different for everyone. But, I have to admit that I’ve been thinking about this for a while. And then recently a
friend posted this quote, “The average woman today, I believe, would do
well to appraise her interests, evaluate the activities in which she is
engaged, and then take steps to simplify her life, putting things of first
importance first, placing emphasis where the rewards will be greatest and most, and ridding herself of the less rewarding activities.” -Belle
As a child my family would drive past the Disney animation studio in Southern California while visiting my grandparents there. Whenever I would see that large Mickey hat in the front I dreamed of being an animator. While my goals have shifted I still would like to become an illustrator and progress my skills in painting.
Friends, I am so excited for this new chapter in my life! Have you ever been at the beginning of a new path in life and felt the excitement? For me this path is a dream come true. As the quote stated, I have identified my interests and now I am simplifying. I am hoping to spend more time with my family and drawing, my two loves.
This is why I created Canary Jane. This is my space where I’ve decided to further my skills as an artist and creative and sharing my journey in motherhood.
