Soul Work...

Did you ever 
spend time 
working on your 
soul...
Your every day... 
I am here 
because...
I am gifted with
 and love to do this...
because...
soul???
That's where I have been the past few weeks. 
Under a construction of sorts~ 
unearthing,
turning the dirt over,
and digging deep
into the  
w h y 's  the w h o 's and the w h a t 's 
of what I am doing 
in this creative world.

This  s o u l  searching journey 
began at a most relevant time 
for me and my art.
I have been so ready to "grow" my art, 
and am now engaged in 
looking at that process 
from the inside out... 
from the c e n t e r... 
starting with my very own  
w h y?

Can you imagine what this world would be like, 
if more people were looking 
inward 
as part of their business strategy???

And that is why,
 two of the biggest hearts in the creative world
formed this 
r e v o l u t i o n a r y

Two notable women, whom I highly admire...
collaborated and co-created this 
10 week e-course, designed for creative businesses.

Kelly Rae is best known as an artist, author, and possibilitarian- 
(and I do believe, she could add a list of many, many more of credits to her name, 
after only being 3 weeks into this course. Take a look at her story!).

Beth Nichols is known as an artist, entrepreneur, 
and creator of DoWhat You Love artist retreats-
(I'd highly recommend reading her ABOUT ME tab on her website, as it will 
make one's jaw drop to know the ground she's covered in her young life.).

Learning from these two beautiful women, (and an online group of 300) 
has been making changes inside of me on a daily basis.

I am loving... every seed that is being planted, 
fertilized and cultivated through this process.

I am loving... that my paintings are starting out differently...
I am loving... that dots are being connected,
and I am loving...
that something 
soul-FULL 
is happening!
I came across a most appropriate quote....

"Change your mind 
to want what reflects
the You that you are becoming
rather than the You 
that you have been."
~Talyaa Liera

  5. I'm a tad behind in the HSHB course mainly because there really is a lot of soul searching to do. Hoping to get caught up when we get a breather. Love your colorful canvases.

  20. What is it that drives you crazy and puts you in the world of unseen fantasies at times. What drives you to endless imaginative possibilities and helps you ease up your mind and gives you the chance to be thankful for the gifts granted by nature. All this is done through inspirational music, which means we can reclaim our true freedom and be born again.
