“Pink Blossoms” 8x10x.5 Acrylic on Canvas
Original
8×10 Prints

Walking into an art gallery for me is like walking into a church. The chatter in my mind slows and eventually silences.

I feel the broken parts of my spirit pull together. The scratches and scuffs on my soul smooth over, any emotional bruises fade and I fill myself with light. Even if parts of the world are depressing, the honesty and truth I find in images created by other humans is a balm.

It reminds me of how much I truly need art and beauty. It’s not an option, but an essential nutrient every bit as vital to my wellbeing as protein, calcium, vitamin A.

A Winter Underground…and a Spring Awakening

0 Comments so far

The sight and scent of new spring blossoms always reminds me of who I am: a creator.

This is when I start to feel like myself again. 

My old friend Seasonal Affective Disorder showed up at her usual time in late November, dumped her bags on my doorstep, and settled in for a winter in each other’s intimate company.

2014 Reflections and 2015 Goals

0 Comments so far

I don’t know why, but I get all kinds of jazzed up from planning my new year. One of my favorite parts of January is that it’s the time to reflect on the year that has passed, finish up on some things I might not have gotten to, and start dreaming up my plans and goals for the coming year.

For the past two years, I’ve used (and loved) Leonie Dawson’s Life and Business workbooks (aff link) to plan my goals for the year and good golly gosh, these workbooks are amazing. I plan to use them every single year for the foreseeable future because they WORK.  They’re a beautiful way to pin down your vision for the coming year and break it down into goals you can accomplish. 2014 was amazing and I owe a lot of it to these workbooks.

Some amazing things that happened in 2014:

My New Years Letter to You

Dear Friend,

2014 is a closed book and 2015 is a blank page, standing wide open. We’re moving on.

We’ve set goals, resolved to change our lives and our selves in one way or another, we’ve cast our wishes like lots. The holidays are over and now we begin the grunt work of making 2015 our best ever.

I hope this year is kind to you. I hope you find what you’re looking for, that you grow and stretch in amazing ways. (more…)
