A few selective Week 7 snippets of art+life process+musings from my IG this past week:
Two of our household favorites.
Sketches in free-flying energy, charcoal and paint.
Making Art Medicine starts with knowing yourself, how you see and relate, and what your creative energy needs to thrive. Making your art, heart and hands all-in -- with *your* rhythm, mark and voice -- guides you to this knowing, unique to you.
(First Making Art Medicine session starts Feb. 29 - so excited! >>> Learn more HERE )
Everyone's happy about the sun visiting today.
To all the 21 SECRETS teachers I've had the pleasure of working with over the past couple of years, thank you for being you, and saying yes to sharing your creative heart with others. I've been Creative Director for 21 SECRETS for two years now, getting to select, invite and work with some amazing artists for four editions, and having an incredible working relationship with my dear friend @dirtyfootprints to bring art journaling experiences to artists around the world ... Meanwhile, my own offerings have been growing beautifully, too... So it was a tough decision, but the right one, to say this would be my last 21 SECRETS as CD. And, I have to say - this workshop and theme is absolutely fantastic!!! I'm honored and proud to get to be part of shining light on these brilliant teachers for you. They have created high quality, engaging, and inspiring workshops to bring very specific tools & techniques to your practice and play.
Head over to find out who they are and what they've cooked up... Bit.ly/artjournal21 ...
Page ten, in process. Paint may be my favorite way to celebrate, center and listen.
My sister is one of my soul mates and best friends. She is also one of the most thoughtful gift givers ever. And an incredible artist (that's my bday card). We've been through a helluva lot together and by each other's side, and sometimes separated for a time... She has watched and supported my artists journey and healing journey my whole life... And visa versa. And we laugh so much together. I hope for every woman a connection like this... With a sister of spirit, blood or both.
Hope you have a creative and heARTfull upcoming week - you can find me in the studio finishing up details for our first week in ESSENCE, starting Feb. 29!
