The Soulful Artist

Life. Art. Transcendence.

We all have them … little paper bags with handles. You know, the ones you get from the coffee shop, or cute little boutique stores. They’re cute and I like them, but the amount I have is a little ridiculous. It’s wasteful to just throw them out so I do reuse them, and I see …

It’s Sunday and it’s a new month. I’m sitting here in my happy place, painting to my heart’s content! I wrote a piece of happy snail mail that I’m mailing out tomorrow! I hit the local farmer’s market this morning, drank some damn good coffee, ate a delicious pastry, I have no where else to …

The last month has been a mix of frustration and elation. More happiness and elation versus the frustration because I walked away (temporarily maybe) from that that was causing me so much sadness and angst.

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.) The spiritual and mystical side of me surprisingly comes out more and more everyday. Where I’ve hidden myself …

Day 9 of my 30 Days of Creativity Challenge! Short and sweet today because it’s my weekend to work. It’s so fun to collage in my journal. I realize my theme today centered around not being afraid, about having the courage to be unapologetically yourself. Up until recently, I’ve had some imposter syndrome when it …

Day 1 of 30 of my 30 Days of Creativity Challenge. I love “pulling paint.” Just mixing up colors and seeing what comes through. I love blues and purples – they’re obviously my favorite colors. I never know what’s going to appear or what the end product will look like. It’s why I love abstract …

Day/Card 39 of 39 … Original … There is only ONE you. There will never be another you, ever. I heard somewhere that there has been a study where scientists did the math and took into account all the natural disasters, wars, and all kinds of other things and calculated that the odds of YOU …
