Today I’m sharing about a very special event called, The Gathering of the Creatives, in Santa Fe, September 20 – 22, 2019. I would love for you to join me!
One of the most meaningful days of my recent retreat in Bali was our Giveback Day, and I’m so happy a little bit about it with you here.
On October 17 – 21, 2018, I’ll be filming a full-length Bloom True Workshop, with all the bells and whistles, and I’m seeking eight wonderful participants to be the stars of the show.
If you are wondering how to balance imagery you’ve found in life while staying open to inspiration and change in the Brave Intuitive Painting process, this blog is for you!
The very thought of public speaking makes my armpits sweat.
This is exactly why I said, “YES” to my first public speaking gig this summer at the Brave Girls Symposium in Boise, Idaho.
SIX DAYS AGO, I ARRIVED AT SQUAM ART WORKSHOPS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.
The woodsy scene there is all kinds of gorgeous — quaint cabins, an unbelievable lake, awesome women everywhere — but there I was with knots in my stomach.
I was there to teach a totally new class — one that involved more movement than painting and more watercolor, ink and pastels than acrylic. Most of my security blankets, comfort zones and feelings of “I got this,” had left the room.
Four years ago, I was invited to teach my very first painting class at Squam Art Workshops in New Hampshire.
Although I had never shared my painting philosophies before (or even considered doing so for that matter), the timing felt divine.
I was ready for a shift.
I’ve been home from my month-long trip to Bali for exactly one week, and I gotta say TIME is so strange when flying halfway around the globe is part of the deal. In some ways I feel like I was just there, but mostly it feels like a distant exotic dream. You know how that goes…
Anyhooo, my trip was lovely. Bali is lovely. My students were awesome and many thresholds were crossed. I know I’ve said it before, but AGAIN, I can hardly believe I get to do this work in the world…and all over the world at that.
WHAT AN AMAZING WEEK THIS HAS BEEN.
Sharing seven soulful days of painting, laughing and connecting with sixteen amazing women gathered from all parts of the globe (U.S., Canada, Honduras and South Africa), has left me, once again, in a state of gratitude and awe for the work I get to do in this world.
Although an incredible amount of energy goes into creating these special retreats, I can’t think of anything more rewarding than being a part of the beautiful transformations I witnessed here this week…on and off the canvas.
