Angels in My Studio

Am I the only one who puts off art-making because, well, I should be cleaning, or working on my "real" business, or....a million other things?  Then half the time, I don't do those other things anyway!  I'll go to bed finally realizing I should have just let my spirit play. 

I hope you don't have that issue.  I hope you make art all the time because it feeds your soul.  My soul needs feeding these days.  I came across an interesting e-course yesterday called Angels In My Studio and decided it would be just the thing to get me back to making art.  Bonus:  I love angels and want to connect with them in my life...what a perfect course for me!

In case you'd like to join the fun, you can find out more about the five month course at Painting Herself Into Being. Sheri Ann Ponzi organized the course and it's taught by a big group of fun and fabulous creative folks.

Today I completed my first lesson.  It was a lesson on intuitive angel painting presented by Cheryl Irwin.  You can find more about Cheryl at her website:

I had a blast making this angel, it really helped free me up.  Next time, I'll try to remember to take
in-progress pictures, but this time, I'm just posting my fun little angel.

What I learned today: 
Don't let perfectionism keep you from moving forward. 

My mantra:
I am enough.

May you walk with angels today!

Creating My Own View

I've lived in some glorious houses with beautiful views.  I don't live in a house like that at the moment.  That's ok.  I can always make my own view. 

I'm a firm believer in the maxim "To get what you love, love what you have."  So, I wake up in the morning to make my coffee and I relish the sun streaming through my little kitchen window. 

My plants love this little slice of sunlight too.  Their fresh, thriving beauty nourishes my soul every day. 

May your day be filled with sunshine and blessings today!
