This blog has moved to my new art/creativity site (Mouse House BLOG). The new blog is also about getting you connected with nature for creative expression, along with my art, workshops, and my personal journey.
Please feel free to explore past posts here, some of which will re-appear for encore showings in Mouse House. Let nature be your muse...
Thank you for visiting Your Nature, and if you like what you read here, be sure to follow my blog at its new home, to continue to receive creative fun and inspiration in your mailbox!

Doodling seems to really be making a comeback in the art world. In addition to being recognized as a valued artistic expression, it’s a great creative warm-up, mental wind-down, meditation, or creative exercise that anyone can do! This week, look to nature for doodle-like impressions. Examples might include: beetle tracks, spider webs, water stains on canyon walls, dendrites (mineralizations), larvae scars on old logs…you get the idea. Find an example of a nature doodle & copy its original, natural form/lines onto your paper. Enhance the original nature doodle by adding your own doodle art for a unique expression of creative “nature.”
