Surrendering To My Creativity

In this post, I confessed that I’ve always longed to draw, paint, and in general, be creative, Sadly, I’d convinced myself that I couldn’t do so. Last year, after decades of saying “I can’t,” I overcame my fear. I jumped in with both feet, and first, began drawing lessons through e-courses and followed those with painting classes from many talented artists.

In less than a year and a half, my growth astounds me. Currently, I am taking “Bloom True,” taught by the acclaimed artist Flora Bowley. (This is the second time that I’m taking the course and you can read about the course and my first experience here.) Flora teaches all over the world, gives e-courses, is an author and accomplished business woman. Her style is intuitive painting, but the class offers so much more about surrendering to the process and following your heart. These pieces are my heart’s expression and my soul’s song. They ignite my passion

Listen carefully–what is your heart calling you to do? What are you passionate about? Be it writing, singing, or surfing–the possibilities are endless. Just answer the call, and embrace your “uniquely you” gift. There is only one you and the world is waiting for you.

Week 43, The 52 Project

Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty

This is week 43 of The 52 Project. I managed to get a shot of my 8-year-old g’daughter, D. It is the extremely rare occasion when one can find her still. She is usually in motion from the time that she wakes up until she falls asleep late at night. I caught this shot, one morning, as she lay sleeping. My curly-haired whirlwind is still and beautiful.
