The Soulful Artist

Life. Art. Transcendence.

Day 11 of my 30 Days of Creativity Challenge. I didn’t have a clear idea of what I would create today. I was kind of just going thru the motions, playing with paint and just thankful to be able to create. I have to admit that I was multi-tasking also: cleaning out my space and …

Day 10 of my 30 Days of Creativity Challenge. Who remembers Spirograph?!? Ugh! So. Much. Fun! So many memories! I remember getting my first one. I remember I was with my Grandma at the GoodWill store in San Francisco when I saw it and I begged her to please get it for me! It was …

Day 8 of my 30 Days of Creativity Challenge. Magic wands for the extension of my own magic! And a little potpourri for my creative space. (There were NO owls harmed in the making of these wands.)

Day 5 of 30 of my 30 Days Of Creativity Challenge. I talk to a lot of people about their passions and creativity. It’s not really what you think. I’m a Nurse by profession so I talk a lot as a distraction when I’m doing unpleasant things (giving injections, starting IVs, etc.). What I’ve learned …

Day 3 of 30 of my 30 Days Of Creativity Challenge. When it comes to creativity, for some, the most challenging part is in getting started. What I’ve learned is that if you wait to feel like it, you won’t ever do it. You just have to start. I’m a runner so when I think …

Day 2 of 30 of my 30 Days Of Creativity Challenge. When I first picked up a paint brush in late 2016, my “painting” was nothing more than a big, blue blob of blue paint on a canvas.
