Iโ€™m moving nearly as fast on this as Iโ€™d like! Hopefully going to have something new to share this weekend. Maybe some tin boxes and more drawings or butterfly origami ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ Iโ€™m trying to make progress when I can, but itโ€™s slow going around here with all thatโ€™s happening in my life. I will always hold onto making art though. It grounds me and brings me closer to my spiritual life. #goodthingsarecoming #makingtime #creativehearts

Flagging, poorly me, poorly baby off school. Distracting myself with finishing pieces (which always feels good) and lines. ๐Ÿ’™

NEW WORK:
His Beard Isnโ€™t Really That Blue๐Ÿ’™
ink pen on paper.
29x39cm

A larger piece for the Beneath series. Inspired by Clarissa Pinkola Estesโ€™s interpretation of the tale Bluebeard in her amazing book โ€œWomen Who Run With The Wolves โ€œ๐Ÿ’™
.
It is a piece that celebrates the power of holding your truth in the face of external and internal forces of destruction. It applauds the journey from naivety into wisdom and the ability to see what needs to be seen. It is about bravery, self trust and the art of asking questions in the presence of demands for silence. It is a piece that explores the personal rebellion that will lead away from the murder room and into much calmer places of beauty. ๐Ÿ’™

Day 58: 100 Days of Feel The Feels ๐Ÿ’™
.
I heard today on the brilliant podcast โ€œthis is fiftyโ€ @thisisfiftysn the phrase, โ€œSelf care is health careโ€. Iโ€™m sick at present so this resonated. Iโ€™m trying to find a way to sleep more and even though, as the mother of a child with Smith Magenis syndrome, this is easier said than done, I know I must try as I have noticed over the last 58 days of this project, tiredness pervading everything. I understand my sleep situation will always be tricky but I also know I can implement at least little changes to help and itโ€™s needed as nobody wants to drag themselves through life like an exhausted turtle! @nancyhalastory @sherisalata thank you ladies for the dream team ๐Ÿ’™

Some people think that admitting to any kind of weakness means youโ€™re less than or a failure of some kind. But admitting weakness means that youโ€™re brave enough to stand in the midst of your challenges and trials with pure authenticity. With no masks of perfection and manicured garbage. Itโ€™s when we show this bravery that we stop people in their tracks....fight bullying attitudes and snooty ugliness and meet each other as our real selves, not our Facebook selves. It shows youโ€™re human and flawed and flaws are what make each of us uniquely beautiful. โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธโ€œEach time he said, โ€œMy grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.โ€ So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.โ€ 2 Corinthiansโ€ฌ โ€ญ12:9โ€ฌ โ€ญNLTโ€ฌโ€ฌ

THE FIRST TWELVE MINUTES ๐Ÿ’™
.
Battling sickness at the minute and my work output is down as a result, so my 12 minute quick draw every morning is a little creativity accomplishment that Iโ€™m appreciating more than ever while I get better. Please join me with the #thefirsttwelveminutes if you like the idea. I would love to see what you do. Have a wonderful Wednesday people and healing love to anybody like myself who is struggling with health at the moment. ๐Ÿ’™

In the study this morning. Iโ€™ve completed the cigar series for my client. Heโ€™s not on Instagram and Iโ€™d like for him to see them first ๐Ÿ˜Š
In the meantime Iโ€™ll put the acrylics up and choose some oils to paint those small boards I covered last week or so. A butterfly is up first ๐Ÿฆ‹ look forward to sharing with you ๐Ÿ˜Š
