Filling in the contemplative moments with learning, experimentation and creative play !
After a few years of neglect I thought it might be time to revisit writing and posting in this blog. It feels timely and welcome back if you followed me before !. I will continue to send newsletters out to my subscribers which will inform re my upcoming events, sales and promotions-but I hope that here will be a space where I can be a little more informal in sharing with you. :-)
January and February have offered the luxury of snowy indoor days when I can try new things -experiment with a variety of media and ideas! I heartily recommend that you shelter time for exploration if you can . There are so many resources for learning now and from the comfort of your home if you please ! I have been receiving prompts (you can too!) from the marvelous artist Este Macleod . You can check her courses out here https://courses.estemacleod.com/ as well you can try the color prompts she offers weekly for free to inspire you! Domestika https://www.domestika.org/
also has an abundant array of courses to jumpstart your art creation.. Personally I have enjoyed instruction from artists Laura Mckendry and
Sarah Van Dongen both of whom inspired me to return to my sketchbooks ! Above is a moment in time -my winter chores with the outdoor critters honestly depicted !

I am of course looking forward to Spring..but also not lose sight of life in the moment..These cold weather days are reminders to focus a little more inward..to take care of myself and to enjoy the flow of imperfect exploration :-)
