Play-Full Times

Hola Dear Readers;
Summer continues to grace us with its presence...Thank Goddess!!! gotta love the blue skies and heat..Looking about the Casa and studio there is space,space on the walls,open floor space. Let me tell u its a concept having all of this free space.. Has it sunk in that very soon i am outta here.....NO! there is much to do yet before i can close the door here and walk on,However my to do me in list grows shorter by the day..

The packing and getting rid of has felt endless but as of Tuesday the studio is completely cleared out,now its the packing of my personal art collection,suitcases, figuring out storage .Well i am sure u get the picture.Life here consists of more than prep for Mexico,I'm having play-full times hanging with friends,enjoying my backyard space,dinners and much more.This time i am opting out of a going away party so its catch me if u can,if not till we meet again...

Today was a playdate,it was a blast as i facilitated my gal pals Monica and Irene in spontaneous intuitive painting,the setting was bootiful in my backyard on the water with the boats in the background and Loreena Mckenna singing away.The gals were testing a workshop out that i want to facilitate in Mexico called " Losing your Senses"

Losing Your Senses

By freeing ourselves from the intimidation that many of us feel about painting, Intuitive Painting is a way to create art that is fun. It encourages spontaneous artistic expression. No previous artistic experience is necessary. Each of us is unique and will discover the painting process in their own way, expressing our own perspective through painting with and without all of our senses and traditional tools.

Willingness to be playful and open-minded is the fundamental driving force for intuitive painting. The principle is simple: ground yourself in awareness, ease, and let your inner source guide you. Who cares how you mark up a page, as long as your marks are created from your inner-spirit?

During this four week Intuitive painting PlayShop series, we will approach painting from a fun new perspective as we take away one of our taken-for-granted senses. Based on the age-old monkey story, we will explore intuitive painted by removing our reliance on one sense each week to express (paint) our own unique story.

Last Sunday was Andy Tuckers Artist reception called "Heads Up" this is a very diverse one woman show and her many creative mediums that she does,interestingly enough her 3D works consists of trash from the bush,this show has bought some challenges from the viewers perspective it comes down to u really love it or can't stand it. so definitely its thought and feeling provoked art.

The arts council,community residents and supporters surprised me with a going away send off here at the gallery i was completely floored somewhat speechless(not for long) lol lol it was very touching and certainly the reality hit home that the hour glass will turn over soon.

The next artist in Residence Aaron M. will be incoming with new creative perspective and i am happy and ready to pass the torch on.So my readers its time to say so long for always good to see ya..

In Artistic Solidarity;
