By day I am an Optician... by night I am secretly a caped crusader, I mean a random painter! Really by early morn. I am not a night person. So I create between 5:30 am and 8:30 if I haven't gone on a morning bike ride or put in a walk/ run session. I really don't have a lot of free time to be in my artroom creating. I wish I was more disciplined but it is what it is. When I get home from work it is about 7:30 pm and I have absolutely NO creative juices flowing. On a day off I am usually found running around like a chicken with my head cut off and if I could ever get it all together I may, just may, get better. That is why I keep plugging away at it! If we weren't saving to take our annual Key West trip I would so be signing up for:
Flora Bowley's online class -OMG- brave intuitive you!!!
or hopping on a plane to England for Lisa Wright's one day class at Highgate House, Creaton on Oct. 20th http://thewrightbrainstuff.blogspot.co.uk/p/playing-with-your-inner-artist-one-day.html
or... the list goes on!!!! If you have the means, do it! Life is short, shorter than you may think!
I am currently doing a few little paintings to sell between $7.50 and $10 - all proceeds going to the organization Optometry Giving Sight. Some wonderful people go to third world countries and give eye exams & glasses to individuals that would not have otherwise! They have built labs to make glasses, trained opticians and provided vision for thousands!!!! Let me know if you see one you like over the next few weeks or if you can share a post that may bring in a donation - please let me know!
Today is the start of Angel Eyes!!! No. 1, we are the world!
She is obviously a result of my class with Natasha May, a somewhat Cotton Candy Girl. I just had to do the glasses!!!
Thank you to Kristin and Eva for hosting our Friday get together PPF - a place to see, be inspired, and encourage others!!!
make art, make friends - share art, share souls
