remember your goodness.

the past few months have been a whirlwind to say the least . all good things. but for a girl who doesn’t whirl often and gets cranky when its windy. well. i get overstimulated. my noggin never shuts down when its slow. but when its fast. holy smokes. and i need to rest. but really even when my body looks lazy. my brain isn’t. (i have a feeling that I am not the only one either.) this week i actually had some moderate level, deep down panic. like what-if-i-run-out-of-ideas? (pfft. you say) and then i remember. that is literally impossible for me. remember your goodness and your greatness. my new mantra. the presiding jesuit priest at cuteGIRL’s grad mass gifted these words to the class. and to me. and they have stuck. remember the good in you and don’t forget the great stuff you add to this world. (yes, you.)

creativeGIRL class love.

Last week my first solo online class went live.  Wow. This online class thing is a whole new world to me. So much to share and learn and move forward with! (btw. the class content is available for a year so you can still get your creative on.  creativeGIRL: the land of light and shadows). and thank you again jeanne oliver for giving me the opportunity to shine. (An amazingly awesome bit of love from kooky makes about my class inserted here) My work always features translucency which is one of the many things I love about Danielle’s work. This made it easy to copy her techniques step by step in a few pieces but then create a piece of my own by substituting some of the materials with ones I love working with & changing the subject matter to things I love to paint.’ Thank you for such an awesome class. …
