What is Intuitive Painting?

Intuitive painting. What is it? Well, I can tell you what it is to me. I describe my painting process as color and shape based with an intuitive process. This means that when I’m connecting with my painting I’m connecting with the colors and how the colors make me feel, and I’m connecting with the shapes and how they make me feel. I like to feel some contrast in my colors but I also like harmony within the whole feeling of the painting. I like static shapes that just sit ther

Life & Painting-Dealing with feeling like, ‘I’ve made the wrong choice.’

And so it goes. The feelings that, I’ve made the wrong choice, or that, I’ve ruined something, rear their ugly heads all too often. My approach to painting mimics what I work on as my approach to life, though painting can be easier to implement my intuitive strategies and learn the necessary lessons along the way, the parallel helps me see things better on my life path about what is going on within myself. What has come to the surface about feeling wrong, feeling I made the w

How would I show up in the world if, I was like a painting on the wall?

A friend sent me a message the other day telling me the painting of mine she has hanging in her study has taken on a story of its own and the next time I visit she will re-introduce me to it. Wow! These words struck me as so beautiful and enlightening. The painting I once worked on to birth into this world has taken on a life of it’s own. I hope she doesn’t mind me copying what she wrote me so I can quote her directly, she said. “I loved the colors, and wanted to add some vib

My Guest spot on the Podcast-Being a Whole Person

You can give a listen or read the transcript over on her site Coaching for Creative Wellness. So, I got the lovely chance to be a guest on the amazing, Being a Whole Person Podcast with Rebecca Haas. This was from back in August so it was really interesting to see what I had to say back then! Feels like a life time ago. Really, not much has changed and everything has changed. I’m still discovering how I ‘want to show up with this positive energy’. I’m still making Yin Yoga,

If you’re not selling a lot than you’re not a real artist…BULLSHIT!

If you’re not selling a lot than how can you call yourself a reeeaaalll artist?! This is shit I call BULLSHIT to!!!! I’ve heard lots of questions in regards to my abstract art and maybe you have too. Those well intentioned curious people who like or don’t like your artwork and ask you questions like, what is it, what does it mean, or do you sell a lot, and the kicker, well if you don’t support yourself from your art can you really say you’re an artist?! Aaaannnnnddddd Bullshi

Paintings & Prayers-Divine writings-Spirit letters-Universe whispers

Paintings and Prayers. So this is something that was given to me yesterday. Though I know prayers sounds religious for some people and I don’t believe you need to have a religion to be spiritual so I came up with other ways of saying it. I love all of them! I’m thinking of creating some lovely little paintings and then channeling a simple prayer-writing-letter-whisper that comes through and typing it up and printing it on top of my aligned art work. My handwriting sucks so wr

Dear Divine-Day 3-The Circus-The Horse-The Anxious-The Love

Hey, it’s me. I just sat with you for awhile. Just sat. I got the messages. Too many to write here but I’ll write a few. The circus has come to me a few times. I like this analogy for my mind. My monkey mind. I picture a circus tent and within that tent is my mind/my thoughts/my ego. The circus is filled with so many things, going on all at once, the noise, the juggling, the animals, the people flying to and frow. I see it. I don’t always realize I’m in the tent but when I ca

Dear Divine-Day 2

I wrote you yesterday and it felt good. It feels a little weird typing to you since I’ve always been a big journal nerd. I have so many going at once for different topics. Weeeeellll they cross over a lot so maybe more so for different rooms. Haha. I don’t think typing could ever replace my journaling, there’s such a different feel to it. Anyhoo. I don’t really know why I’m even talking about that. It wasn’t anything that entered my head until I started typing. Last evening I

Dear God/Divine-Day 1

Today God-the Divine I felt like I really needed help getting grounded and feeling safe. My anxiety went up yesterday and like always my body feels so tense and tight, my chest is buzzing, my throat is tight and I had trouble quieting all the thoughts whirling in my head. Some thoughts were helpful as they told me things I had forgotten to do at work, so I wrote them down, yet while I’m lying in bed trying to sleep isn’t my favorite time to experience these things as I know t
