Growing Up

Paper collage on painted matte board, 8 x 8 inches
Now that I've shared with you what I spent my summer doing, and had and shared my big breakthroughs (the mother of all awakenings, in my case)...

I'm feeling like being quieter again, less wordy.  I am feeling a lot of joy now, and an aliveness that feels new to me.  An up-on-the-edge-of-my-seat-ness about making practice my life and working with everything that comes to pass, without judgment. 

However, I do have a lot of things to giveaway, so I'll continue doing weekly giveaways for the foreseeable future, whether or not I feel like talking.

The winner of last week's pen giveaway has been notified.  Thanks to all who entered.  There'll be another pen giveaway in the next week or two.  A note about entering:  If something I'm offering appeals to you, please do enter.  Your chances of winning are excellent.  Not that many people have been entering.  I don't think I've ever won anything in anyone else's blog giveaway, but I suspect that's because so many people enter those -- like upwards of 200 or more.  You've got a really good chance here, so do enter.

This week's giveaway is a painted collage with handmade paper on an 8 x 8 inch canvas panel.

To enter the drawing, either leave me an email here, or include your email address in the body of your comment to this post.  I'll do a drawing on Wednesday October 21 and I'll email the winner directly.

Also -- if you're interested in a list of the best of the Buddhist-practice books I've been working with, email me for that.

Have a great week.  Blessings.

Your second image reminds me of a train, trundling along up a mountain side! Love the textures too.

This is a charming piece, even though that might not be what you had in mind. (The giveaway piece.)

It would be fun to have, yet I have so many pieces of art not on the wall for lack of space, that I will forego the giveaway. :-(

Bye-bye as you slip into another space of solitude. Kisses.

What the heck - I'll enter! Love your artwork and it would be lovely to have a Connie Rose piece of art. And I'm all for being quiet and keeping things to myself too. It is lovely of you to be giving things away.....

The give away is lovely and, as others have said, it'd be great to have a Connie Rose on my wall. I'll email you my email!
Enjoy your peace ... But don't stay away too long ... We so enjoy hearing from you.

Hi, Constance, I was steered to your work by John Arbuckle, with whom I am taking a journal play class- great fun! I love your red collage and also many of your other works. Please enter me in your giveaway- I have never won anything either...but many require you to post on your blog, but I do not have one, being rather techno-challenged. Thanks,
marilyn
