Studio Tuesday: Pay What you Want!


More and more, I experience things in my life that show me just how little control I have…and how much I need to let go and trust in this life. To that end, I am making this a

**PAY WHAT YOU WANT** painting,

and I am trusting that the universe supports me.

1. Today only, send me a message telling me about letting go of control in your life.

2. What is your offer? (Shipping and handling not included).

3. I will contact you tomorrow!

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 8: Self Worth – YES!


On the heels of open-heart yesterday, this seems like a given. We are all worthy – YES!

Now I’m thinking about my art, though, and how I can use that as a way to value myself. I recently offered a painting at a pay-what-you-want price. I was offered $5. Not only do I value myself enough to refuse that offer, but I also realized that PWYW requires some sort of minimum price (like I do with my auctions), so that I don’t feel taken advantage of, and unworthy.

The real challenge for me in showing myself that I value ME is in my moments of choice. Lately I have been asking myself, “Does this serve me?” I’ve just begun this practice, so I am making all kinds of choices that don’t serve me (sugar, Facebook, staying up late). But the more mistakes I make, the more I remember to ask the question, and the more I feel that self-worth.

Like Stuart Smalley (SNL) says, “I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And doggone it, people like me!”
