Random glimpses into the thoughts of a woman- searching for life's answers - or maybe just asking the questions and living them. Trying to live creatively and authentically. Learning to BE - HERE - NOW.
I have been missing in action the last few weeks. Work was a bit crazy with summer music camps. Being with children is so much fun. They are like sponges and just absorb quickly concepts of music that adults struggle with. I am always amazed at how they take the two week camp and come out playing music and sounding wonderful! But, I was also completely exhausted each day! My normal job is running an office and taking care of a ton of paperwork. Switching to being with children all day wore me completely out.
And I have been taking Connie Hozvicka's FEARLESS BIG class. All of my spare time and energy went to this class. We are entering our 6th week and it has been an amazing adventure! It is hard to find the words to explain what this class and the women involved have done for me. Connie has created a tribe of painters that are truly fearless and a force to behold! The encouragement, support and laughter has been constant. I love these women!
I am a quiet, reserved person for the most part. And in my art work, I'm careful (okay fearful!). But the doors have opened for me the last 5 weeks. I've painted BIG and FEARLESS and I love it. I've covered a wall in the dining room with cardboard (to put up the large pieces of paper to paint.) I brought in a step ladder so I could reach the top of the page. I've learned it is okay to just paint from my heart - with my body dancing and the music playing. What an eye-opening, soul expanding experience it has been. And I have painted my heart out. I've discovered a passion that I suspected existed but I had no idea how much it called to me. It is all about the process and not so much the products which is very freeing.
You can take part in this adventure. Registration is open for the next tribe of FEARLESS painters. If you have ever dreamed about taking a risk and seeing what BIG is all about, this is the time to do it!!!!!
I received the most wonderful package last week from Connie at Dirty Footprints Studio. I am taking her class. I sent her an intention and asked her to paint a piece of artwork using my intention. What I received is an amzing beautiful piece that is now gracing the wall in my studio. I've been hesitant to write about it. Words to describe how this makes me feel are difficult to find. This painting speaks of possibility and hope and transition. I find myself just staring at her and smiling with the belief that she is showing me the way. Connie has a video about painting this on her website http://www.dirtyfootprints-studio.com/2010/07/fearless-painting-again.html
Connie, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the spirit and love that comes from this.
