Here is my Week 6 round-up of art+life+musings as shared on Instagram this past week. It's been a super busy week behind the scenes as I prepare Making Art Medicine's first session, and with 21 SECRETS Spring edition coming up, so just a few pics this week...
The new monthly theme is posted, and ready for your New Moon creative practice... Aquarius is a visionary, freedom-loving, true-to-you energy, and perfect for creative exploration of how your inner and outer worlds do or don't align. We're starting to play along here with tag #artpracticemoonmagic , plus there's a link-up for sharing at my site, too, anytime between now and the March new moon.

On the right, that's my guy. Tonight is the re-scheduled 7th annual Django Bday Party in Asheville. It is always an amazing show in honor of one of the greatest guitarists, and put on by some of Asheville's finest musicians. This is Hot Point Trio - Steve's band. If you ever come through town, they play several times a week, most weeks, and if you like gypsy jazz, or just fine musicianship - you will love them. Plus, both Steve and the bassist, Trevor, handmade their instruments!

A few more marks... Loving pencils over paint tonite.
(I was using my Derwent Inktense pencils - which are now listed over with some of my other favorite-supplies HERE)
Any other recovering office supply addicts out there??? Some things will remain forever analog in my heart, but being able to turn piles of file folders I no longer use or need into handmade home-bound art journals makes me so happy!
(The binding machine, binders and paper cutter I love are listed over HERE as well)
Practice seeing, eye to heart to hand to page. Quick studies.
(We'll be doing all sorts of fun studies, intentional reflection AND free-flow intuitive play in drawing and paint in Making Art Medicine this year. The first sesssion opens in two weeks.... eeeee! JOIN US?)
Explain less, stand strong and create more. .... ... .. . [see the blog post with full spread + musings]
Hope your week was colorful, creative and full of connections you love!
