I think I am still decompressing from those 30 paintings!
It's been a wonderful week full of inspirations
and new plans.
The first photo is a painting I started as a demo for my oil painting class
and later finished at home.
My inspiration was a Buddha in Maui that a friend discovered
in a magical orchid garden.
The second photo is from a drawing class I am taking with
Marie Donato at the OA gallery in Kirkwood.
The little sweetie is my grand nephew.
The next photo just shows a slightly cleaner and more organized studio,
which I spent a good chunk of the week working on,
when I wasn't working on a proposal.
The last photo are some books I am loving right now.
Yep, there's a Chicken soup book in there
and I am loving this one as it is all about reaching your dreams.
"Daily Painting" is one of my absolute favorites and I suggest it in all my classes.and
"Dinner with Lenny" is just so inspiring. His energy and life was an wonderful example for any Creative.
Ursula LeGuinn has been a favorite since I read her stories to my son,
But then I started reading her non-fiction and discovered a woman
full of spirituality and insight.
Most of these are library books so you don't have to spend a fortune to get this wonderful
energy into your life.

Art is my passport to a limitless journey. When I am not exploring my materials on a technical level, there is visual exploration before me. When that seems a bit thin, there is a deep calling from the realm of my imagination. Sometimes all three come together in a perfect storm. That storm, that combination of the real, the imagined and the very paint and canvas is what calls me daily, and I answer as much as I can.....
