A stone cat.


Every adventure requires a first step.

I took the first step on this new adventure last week when I painted Buddha on a river stone.

My exploration continues this week by painting on yet another stone, only, this week there is a difference.
I stepped out of my comfort zone.

I tried painting a cat.



I realized what I had thought I was utterly incapable of, is not something that is utterly beyond my capacity if I choose to try!
Well, as they say, the walls of the heart are certainly most difficult to break.

It only requires stony courage!
And that first step!
