Studio Re-Arrange - Do you love doing this, too? ♥

Have you felt the grip of Resistance when you KNOW you need to be getting something creative or soul-filling done? You are not alone! (at the bottom I share a great tip) Resistance uses our OWN voice to remind us why we should NOT be working. Why we should check social media instead. Why we should vacuum instead. Or have a snack. I could feel that I was stalling on some paintings this week, so, instead, I got a hair-brained idea that I NEEDED to rearrange my studio, because that would 'solve everything!'

WHO & WHY?

Over the last year or two it might seem like I've gone off the rails.

From joy through pain, and back to joy again.     I’ve just finished the final painting for the book. It’s not the last page in the book, though, I jumped around. On Instagram (stories) and in my Private Facebook Community, I’ve received lots of lovely feedback on this new dreamy sleeping painting, so, here I've paired her with the early sleeping page from the book.       This is an example of the transformation this book provides for the character,...

Silent Story Updates - wallowing

View the page devoted to A Silent Story   read more Silent Story Blog Posts   As always, you can get the most current updates on the Silent Story project by joining the Private Facebook Community.   I'm starting to feel this project draw to a natural and peaceful close, the creation of the book, at least. The Seeker will continue on in other ways. I have been enraptured by this project for almost 2.5 years, and have felt Resistance try to kick my butt many times. The emotions have run the spectrum.
