Back in the Studio!

After that quick taste of summer, school has started and I am finally able to paint again! Yippee! I am scheduling in painting time (among all my other fun things to do) daily using my new calendar app. It’s funny to me that most people who asked me how often I paint thought it was daily, but it was usually only once or twice a week.

Finished up these two and there are more coming! These will be available in my Etsy shop soon, but until then, contact me if you are interested in purchasing.

SelfLove365: Day 190

20140709-224710-82030539.jpg

I spent the afternoon painting at Lovecraft Gallery, which means company, different music than I’m used to, and a change of scenery. I found myself painting slowly; it almost felt too slow, after all the 20-minute paintings I’ve been doing! After a discussion of tentacles, I noticed that there were tentacle-ish shapes appearing on my painting, something new. They look more like brains, or Korean graffiti, maybe. I’m liking it, whatever it is.

SelfLove365: Day 180

Shame.
Loving myself in shame is tough. I feel all the shame of my lifetime, all the judgements from others, all colliding in me at once.

SelfLove365: Day 175

Grounding.
I brought this piece of hematite to the woods today and let it soak up the Earth energy. It feels heavy in my pocket, a reminder to me to leave my thoughts behind and settle into the Earth.

Self Love 365 – Live at Wolf Willow Studio!

For the last few months, I’ve been thinking about teaching, but not getting down to work and actually planning a class. As a professional procrastinator, this is nothing new. A few days ago, I was asked if I would teach a class about the Self Love inchie project I have been working on. I said, “YES!” and jumped right in. I love getting that kind of kick in the butt to get me moving!

I’ve really enjoyed collaborating with Michelina Bamford at Wolf Willow Studios, and I am super excited to share this project next week!

Here are the details!

“Do I love myself? I wasn’t sure with the voices in my head telling me otherwise. With the hopes of growing more compassion and gentleness towards myself, I chose to commit to a practice of drawing one thing every day that I love about myself”. –Belinda Fireman
