Creative Practice Revelations Happen in Acts Between the Seen and the Unseen

 Which Way, mixed-media painting, Hali Karla Arts
Art mirrors [our] struggle and captures the process of letting go. Every stroke pushes the painting to sacrifice itself: every creative act destroys something previously built. Imagination reveals not new vistas but revelations of reality behind reality. All art points to a transaction between reality of the seen and reality of the unseen.
— Makoto Fujimura

There is a Way that we only find in taking action.

Being present. Seeing. Listening.

Feeling. Not turning away.

Doing the hard work that is called upon us.

And then…

Believing so deeply in what we know to be real in what can’t be measured or seen, that we are willing to disarm, destroy, risk, transform, and let go of what is real in what can be seen.

To surrender to change.

Yes, there is something about this that speaks to my soul.


I was ‘supposed’ to be writing about re-releasing two well-loved Creative Practice ecourses today - now self-guided with unlimited access - but you know, these days I’m just not feeling the catchy-inspiration, lead-page, funnel-pitch in my creative energy… so, here’s to random shameless plugs at the end of short posts and keeping it real, because I trust my process AND yours:

Click the image above to learn more about each course. I’d truly would love to connect and be your guide on the side for a bit as you develop your Creative Practice. THAT is where my creative energy loves to flow. ;-)

Note: Both of these courses were previously released as part of my Making Art Medicine program.
