The Little Red & Green Christmas Painting Project

LittleXmas2015_iiLittleXmas2015_ivI’m hunkering down for Christmas now and playing with making a few little paintings. I snapped  a few shots during the process of making these  paintings which I’m calling ‘The Little Red & Green Christmas Paintings‘. These are each the size of a big postcard, each of them painted on a hand torn piece of 300 pound water colour paper (giving them a deckled edge) with heavy body acrylic paints using a palette knife.  I stared the series by choosing 3 parameters 1) colours – I decided green & red  with a few other colours to punch it up 2) composition – I decided these would be a landscape composition 3) content – these pieces are about freedom, space, playfulness and experimentation. Enjoy the in process pictures!

Have you made your road map for 2016?

Life is constantly offering us millions of options, every minute. We have to make choices on where we are headed, and, unless we get clear for ourselves, we’ll be following the pack, or taking orders from someone else. In this one day workshop, co-facilitated with Deb Chaney, you are presented with the structure and support to get clear on what you want for YOU in various area of your life; such as finances, health & relationships. And, for those who dare, dive even deeper into moving forward with your soul’s work and purpose – why you are really here. Please bring a journal, regular and coloured pens, magazines with images to cut out, a glue stick, and plenty of water and snacks for yourself.

100+ Ways I can be kind to myself

100+WaysICanBeKindToMyself.jpgI am working on a wonderful creative project (currently the project is a secret to support cultivating my creative energy and momentum to see it through and deliver it to you next year!). In support of this project, I put a poll on Deb Chaney Facebook asking my friends how they are kind to themselves. The answer is in this poster above! Enjoy, Deb. #BeKindToYourself
