I want to share a little video of how it began. It was good for me to be taking Mary Ann Moss' Full Tilt Boogie class because it allowed me to process deeply. I really needed to because there has been some conflict at work. Here is my dear little book. Continue reading

I have had such a good time lately making this book. I have always wanted to learn how to add a hard cover to my signatures but I never could. Now thanks to Mary Ann Moss I can. I love Mary Ann's Full Tilt Boogie class . Continue reading

Today my drought has broken. I managed to paint a portrait. I am sharing a self portrait pic too which has meaning for me. So at the same time I finished my new painting I found my Unfurling book waiting on the doorstep. It is Misty's book of course! I am so overcome I can't talk about it. Suffice it to say I have tears. So here is my art heart .. I think it's kinda cool my colour I explored today is also on the back cover of Misty's book. Thankyou Misty for sharing you. I'm proud of my... Continue reading

Art by Gina Rossi Armfield Dear hearts .. I want to talk about a new class coming in July which I will be taking. It's called The Daily Sketchbook. Gina always offers inexpensive classes which speak to my soul. She manages to combine some art therapy without calling it so. I've taken Gina's Tree class and Animal Spirits class and more. I guess I'm glad she loves watercolour because it is a new interest of mine. I always go looking for the right class for me. I'm not just looking for technique, but play, and art that supports transformation. I... Continue reading

It takes great courage to feel present and to embody your true self. Blocks arise and you have to push through. I have lately found comfort in 'The Four Agreements' by Don Miguel Ruiz. It makes me sad that human beings suffer to find authenticity. Feeling, and being authentic and finding your own voice .. is hard. For me I used to find work a place to survive, and I had to forge a path. I spoke out against bullying. I had to. My health was at risk.This year my job has changed so much. If you imagine that you... Continue reading

This year has seen a big change at work for me. Instead of having my own classroom and students I'm adjusting to teaching in other peoples classrooms. It means basically being on show and performing in front of other people. It has been difficult but I'm succeeding. I'm currently taking a few days off to rest because I've had a sore throat for weeks. Typepad is mucking up so I cannot upolad an image. Guess I'm relying just on my voice. Continue reading

I made this painting from a self portrait during Misty Mawn's onlone class.. And this other one is my favourite. It was done the day after I went back to work. There was some integration for me. I'm really proud of my progress. This is my third class with Misty Mawn and I am finally getting to a place I am happy with. Taking a class with Misty is definitely like 4 classes in one! She's taken us on a magical mystery tour and our souls are soaring. She is so talented and giving, and a very spiritual artist. I... Continue reading

Today I had a wonderful time connecting with my friends in the Sydney Sketch Club. I suggested going to Centennial Park and we finally made it. Adding Water Over Watercolour Pencil from Colette on Vimeo. I'm learning how to sketch with watercolour pencils. Some new members joined us today and we even had a Sketcher all the way from Dublin Sketch Club. That's Pat in the white hat. Continue reading

My heart is so open at the moment. I'm feeling the joy of being in Misty Mawn's current online class. So much beautiful interaction is occuring eventhough class hasn't begun. Everybody is just introing and sharing their personal stories via poems n stuff. Here is my 'poem' I made yesterday. I am learning to accept myself and it isn't easy due to childhood wounding. And after everyone opening so deeply of themselves I felt the need to do some art. Continue reading
