Laura Hollick’s International Soul Art Day takes place on May 25th. This will mark my fifth year participating. It is an all day virtual event. Laura guides you through a thought-provoking journey, to help you connect to spirit and insights.

Ready for a day of fun? Open to everyone, you can join in as your schedule allows. Choose a favorite medium, or try a new one. It is empowering to know that you are connected with so many kindred spirits. Thriving in the energy that is artistic expression.

A couple of days ago I decided to clean out my stored artworks. I am recycling what I can. Six boards of different sizes are gessoed and ready to go. Twenty 6 x 6 pieces of Yupo are washed and standing by.  I even “washed” pieces of Arches. I figure that I can gesso them as well. So I guess I am ready for Soul Art. Don’t you find it interesting that the thought came to me, just before the invitation did?

I hope you will consider taking part in this creative cluster. Visit the link above for a short video introduction. Click on the images for a look back at my Soul Art Experiences.

Splatter stripe has been “favorited” by many of the designers on Spoonflower. A few that I really admire as well. (Very cool!)  I am going to take that as a good sign. Fingers crossed!  Still a few more days to vote!

 

Happy weekend everyone!

My January favorites.

Tomorrow I begin Leslie Saeta’s January 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
Hope to see you there!

Wishing you Joy, Happiness and Health!

May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
The rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.
― Famous Irish Blessing

 

 

 

 

Partly Cloudy Sunshine

The work is done. A painting for the day. Successful learning, if not successful  looking. The scan is not true to life. There is a playful interaction between the butterscotch and the yellow, only slightly visible here. The blues are deeper indigo, and the greens somewhat brighter.

I love the shape of the head, the way the berry pooled. That was laid down first and formed the shape of the center. (Yellow, butterscotch then berry, green and indigo.) I love the texture in the center.

Partly cloudy is my favorite kind of day. Changes the colors on the mountains minute by minute. Click on the images for a closer look.

Oh, these vast, calm, measureless mountain days,
days in whose light everything seems equally divine,
opening a thousand windows to show us God.
