Time with Children

SelfLove365: Day 194

This morning, I brought my three children to Griffith Woods. My 8-year old son insisted he wasn’t coming, that I am not the boss of him, and as usual, I calmly replied that I am the boss of where he goes, but he is the boss of how he feels about it. I mentioned to him that the last time I was there, I brought my special rock, and set it in front of “my tree“, to gather some energy from the sun and the Earth. This piqued his interest, and he ran to his room to gather his special rocks.

What was supposed to be a 10-minute walk turned into over an hour, with all the children talking eagerly about whether their rocks wanted to be placed in the water, if they wanted to go gather more sun energy, which trees were calling to them, and the best part.. my son insisted that we come back in two days to visit the rock he left behind in the stream, and also, that this was so much fun, Mom!!

Inspired/Inspiring

SelfLove365: Day 192
I met Chris Cromwell tonight at the “Abstract” show at the Lovecraft Gallery. He is insanely inspiring, and an amazing artist. We share a love for colour, without a doubt.
I was also told tonight, by two people, that I inspired them to paint. This makes me so happy! Yay!

Painting Slowly=New Ideas!

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.

I’m happy to share that I was one of the featured artists on the Abundant Artist Live talk today, along with Michelle Leivan, an artist who has painted over 60 selfies this year – amazing! If you haven’t checked out The Abundant Artist yet, do it! They share videos, articles and posts all helping to dispel the starving artist myth, and helping artists to promote themselves.

Here’s the video!
