Art of listening

The power to truly listen to that which wants to come through you can be a tough thing to accomplish. Life happens, distractions occur but finding a quiet spot to sit and let your mind wander works wonders…. When words find you in that space where your mind fades, magic happens. Sometimes we just need to get out of our own way.

Writing my morning pages brought forth this intuitive sketch..


 

 

Thank you for stopping by to view my work and videos..

Let it out

Go do that thing that is always on your mind and in your heart!

 

Just going with the flow, I let the watercolor paint form and take shape on paper until I found the image, The idea for a haunting formed during the process. – watercolor, pen on Canson 140lb paper

Mindful

Without a plan, I just let the paint take form on paper and this image came forth, as the words “my mind is full” swirled in my head..

Life in abstract

Every so often I like to change things up and create abstract art. I like the freedom and exploration of the process. The past few weeks I have been working on two mixed media paintings simultaneously. Working on these paintings felt like a tug of war, a love hate relationship, a labor of love with lots of juicy layers.

This image and the words were on my mind for days, I decided to draw it out and let it flow onto the page.

The purple dress

Sometimes it feels like you are deep in a frilly mess but then you realize you can change it! If the zipper sticks just grab the scissors!

 

 

 

Sometimes I don’t know who or what will appear when my pencil touches the page but characters are always welcome.    Song: Eet by Regina Spektor 

The release

Ideas are most welcome when they appear unannounced. When that creative idea makes a visit I pay attention, because if I ignore the visitor, it will taunt and haunt me all day.

This quick little illustration came about when I participated in the Deepak/Oprah 21 day guided meditation challenge. As I meditated on releasing negativity, an image appeared and stuck with me. I did my best to portray my version of letting go. Holding on to stuff internally, whether anger, negativity, old wounds will keep us chained, hold us back from from a vibrant healthy life.

Open up, let it out and be light.

Time off for good behavior

Shaking up my day this morning getting out of my little studio to meet up with a friend. It was perfect weather to be out and about today. I headed to a local cafe for a good cup of cafe mocha and to enjoy some engaging conversation. Afterwards I was inspired to create this little doodle.
