12 Reasons

I have to impose strict 'signing up to' rules on myself, before I skit off in a giddy rush, happily clicking on any promise of more color and fun and artsy inspiration in my life... I don't expect any different from you.

My Indigo June

Twelve Colors in Twelve Months: 2017 is my year full of color. I called it Twelvty. Because that's just the way my mind works... and because I like made up words. Each month I take another step around the color wheel, and focus on making art in just this color. I like the liminal places … Continue reading My Indigo June

Little Green Things

on letting go, on moving on

Continuing from yesterpost, as I'm finding my place in this book, it's finding its place in my days. I'm loving the contrast of my art against the books original purpose (which I spoke of more over here). The waves and the lines criss-crossing the verbal nonsense. More than this I'm enjoying the meditation of the evening ritual this book … Continue reading on letting go, on moving on

daily learning

Do you have daily practices? I kinda do, but my progress moves like a caterpillar - that scrunching-stretching motion, so while it averages out as daily, it might not always be technically daily. This is the thing: - I'm acknowledging this now instead of berating myself. I'm learning my rhythms and working within them.  I'm letting the process … Continue reading daily learning

where’s my muse gone?

Y'know the thing, where you've cleared some time, you've made some space, you've got peace and quiet for a reasonable stretch of time. All those obstacles that prevent you from creating in the usual day-to-day-ness of life............. ........... and where's your muse gone? ...... when did that perpetual freaking flood of imagination dry up? Sometimes (I think) when the ideas sense … Continue reading where’s my muse gone?
