Her Spirit Journey (she loves the wild)

Happy spring equinox!

I have been having some good days in my studio and in my life. I seem to have developed a new pattern of creating. I have BFD's...do you know what I mean by that? Big f#*%ing days! (it's a tree planter's language!).

Days with soooo much productivity and fervour! 

S L O W days always follow.

Such is the rhythm of my life right now. It feels fine, and it is different for me because I am typically someone who always has BFD's!!  Really learning a change of pace.

It feels timely.

I have been getting some painting time in my studio, as well as working on a couple of BIG glass projects. I will be sharing more pix and process about those projects once the clients see them. They have been challenging and fun! With a serious and playful dose of sacredness. A good combination for me.

I am, more and more inhabiting these words. We all can. If we choose.

When I say be creative, I don’t mean you should all go and become great painters and great poets. I simply mean let your life be a painting, let your life be a poem. —Osho

I've been listening to Danielle Laporte's  "The Firestarter Sessions" .

And LOVING it!

 

Sun Infused Glass (Colour Energy)

I LOVE to create with colour!

 

Colour Energy

I've been having  fun creating bright colourful fused glass work in a very abstract way. I love to work with colour in my glass in a very random way.

This is when I am the very happiest in my creating time. When there are no perimeters on what I create. This way I can create whatever comes to mind on that particular day, with what the energy of the day brings to me.

It feels like a more feminine way to create. Without restrictions or expectations. With more F L O W. 

To Flow: "proceed or be produced smoothly, continuously, and effortlessly"

I chose F L O W as my word for this year. I want to continue to learn to inhabit the meaning of the word more fully in all areas of my life.  The description above sounds good to me!  It happens often enough that I am well aware of how good it feels. Now my "work" is to pull it through into more areas of my life.

Stir Stix

As you can see the colours I am liking now are moving and F L O Wing between my fused glass work and my painting and mixed media work. Nice.

Lots of WARM colours...yellow and red in the mix right now. Maybe because it was been such a super SUNNY winter here on the west coast, in the rainforest. Typically we would have much more rain at this time of year. We've been sun infused.

"One Tribe" Mixed Media Art

I often listen to fictional audiobooks, music and spiritual teachings in my studio. Currently I have been listening to "The Desire Map" by Danielle Laporte! It is brilliant.
