The Soulful Artist

Life. Art. Transcendence.

Day 17 of My 30 Days of Creativity Challenge. Making art can be hard especially if your goal is perfection. This is an impossible goal to have as there will always be something to improve. Something will always look a little off, you’ll wish you used a different color or a different brush. Always something. …

Day 13 of my 30 Days of Creativity Challenge. I Am an Artist. Up until now, there were times I found it challenging to call myself “an artist.” I felt like that there was so much to live up to when you call yourself that: having talent, producing a “product,” revealing parts of yourself that …

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/Card 37 of 39 … Synchronicity … I was 14 when I learned of the word “Synchronicity.” The Police came out with their last album named the same, and I scored some amazing concert tickets and went to their concert with my best friend at the time, Salvi. It was such a great concert held …

Day/Card 36 of 39 … The Vortex … When you’re in “The Vortex” means that you are in alignment with all that is who you are. You feel enlightened, joyful, passionate, amazing, inspired!
