    buying art materials in bulk, ways we grieve, world peace & mind control

    buying art materials in bulk, ways we grieve, world peace & mind control

    what are the best places to buy art materials? there are great places online and locally but i have found buying in bulk to be the most helpful for me. do you ever think about "world peace" and what that would look like? which are more important to you: peace or agency/free will? which do you think will make the biggest difference in our world?

    loss, betrayal & change — everyone I talk with is grieving someone or something. grief is an uncomfortable but necessary part of life. when we don’t face or work through our grief it can come back later with a vengeance interrupting or triggering us at the most inopportune times. it’s normal to be affected by grief time and time again, but the more we bravely walk through it or talk about it, the easier it becomes and the more we can learn from the experience. what are you & your loved ones grieving? what helps you most as you process your grief? who needs your help most in their grief?

    painting our heavenly parents - the two trees of the garden of eden, 13 month calendar research, highlights of ‘23 and hopes & dreams for ‘24

    painting our heavenly parents - the two trees of the garden of eden, 13 month calendar research, highlights of ‘23 and hopes & dreams for ‘24

    are you familiar with valerie hudson’s work on the two trees in the garden of eden? she talks about their symbolizing our heavenly father and mother, their roles, purpose, mission and how it connects to adam, eve, and we their children. mcarthur krishna, artist and author of the “girls who choose god” and “girls/boys guide to heavenly mother” books, has curated artwork with the them of “heavenly parents”. yes, a book will be coming later with the artwork, but this time she is starting with the artwork. i cannot wait to see what the artists have created. hear about the piece i’ve just completed for the show – the symbolism and all the background thoughts that went into creating this painting.

    how do you feel about the moon? are you fascinated with its phases and how it so beautifully interacts with nature? did you know that there was a time (and there are still some cultures) that followed a 28 day, 13 month calender? how would that change the way you interact with nature? what would that look like for women and their typical 28-day cycle? what would it be like to have the same days of the week fall on the same 4 dates each month? would that alleviate stress & anxiety? if dec means 10, why is it the 12th and final month in the year and oct means 8 when it represents the 8th month? and what if the beginning of the year was really in springtime and april? what is april fools anyway?

    what are your hopes and dreams for 2024? how’s it going so far? are you as big into tweaking your plans and systems as i am? i’ll share some of my ongoing goals, hopes and dreams personally & in my art business and wish you the very best in this coming year!

Creative Inspiration, Practical Tips & So Enjoyable!

This is so enjoyable listening to while I'm in the studio painting, I feel like Katrina and I are just hanging out as I create! She's one of the most genuine people and it really comes through in her podcast. It's obvious that she has a true passion and a gift for supporting other women, espcially in their creative pursuits. Not only do I feel more inspired to chase down my artistic goals, but I also appreciate the practicle tips for maintaining and growing a creative business!
