I won't tell you the details of Tracy's amazing techniques, you'll have to do the course for that. But I will share with you a few of my poems. I did four because the process was just so much fun and I amazed myself with each one... it was a little addictive actually. Plus I don't expect I'll ever do it again I let myself totally enjoy it. Here's my faves....
Not sure if I told you there was gonna be any winner's at the end of Flora Bowley's Bloom True Boot Camp (see all in Sept posts here). But there was and guess what?....
I'm a winner!!!
Can you believe that? Woohoo, yeehah and woopdy doo!!! Someone pinch me... I'm soooo excited I have no words to describe. Holy Cow! That's about all I got atm!!!!!
My prize you ask?
A spot in Flora's Bloom True E-Course... "a 5 week groundbreaking and transformational approach to painting (and living) that celebrates intuition, connects body, mind and spirit and allows unique and expressive paintings to emerge naturally and authentically". Here's a snippet...
Thank you Flora. And the Universe. And my courage. And me :) You are awesome!
I won, I won, I won !!!
Sorry, going now :)
Life is great when you participate. Phillipa Cullen
You know that saying.. "When the student is ready the teacher will appear"? Well all I can say is I must be really ready because so many amazing wonderful teachers are showing up in my life and I am lapping up every ounce of their artistic and life wisdom and knowledge... like a paint soaked sponge :) And I'm love love loving it!!!
Again the universe has placed in my lap just what I need at just the right time. This time in the beautiful artistic shape of the lovely Tracy Verdugo. As I said in my last post I have recently begun her Paint Mojo on-line course. Here is a taste of her loveliness, can you believe that's her singing too...
And this is what I've done in the course so far.
Some thumb nail sketches to gather inspiration...
A scratch foam print...
And a mono print...
Soooo much fun... can't wait to experiment more with these mediums. Or find out what Tracy has up her sleeve for us next.
Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful sunshine. I I spotted this today... trees are so awesome, even after their death.
I learnt soooo much from Flora Bowley's Bloom True Boot Camp (see previous months posts). So many tips and techniques and a lot about myself. The main thing I got from it though was a wonderful realisation and belief that I can do this. I can cram. I can find/make time. I can (and indeed should) prioritise my artistic ambitions. I am worth it.
But I want to learn more. Learn whatever it takes. Keep going. So I'm now throwing myself into another on-line course called Paint Mojo by another of my very fave artist's Tracy Verdugo.
Soooo excited... I'll keep you posted :)
Prob should go do some chores now. Not a lot of that been happening lately which, considering my frustrated post back in December, is a huuuuge leap forward for me and something I'm actually very proud of :) I have a life of my own now and with practice I've learnt to re-prioritise, put things off that get in the way of my needs. I've found that the urgent must do stuff gets done and everything else gets done eventually, after I do the things that matter to me? Only took me 50 years to figure that out!
Hope you're putting your needs first too.
If the shelves are dusty and the pots don’t shine,
it’s because I have better things to do with my time.
"Art has given me so much. If I can pass it on and inspire even one other person to live their own creative passions then I'm a very happy artist indeed "
