Art was healing me long before I consciously realized it… as far back as I can remember really. In the spirit of the best-nine fun yesterday, I picked my 12 favorite spreads from my journal pages in 2015 – not for aesthetic, but for the way they make my heart pause and connect to my life, story and journey this past year. Here are six – there are six more RIGHT HERE, with some thoughts about art and healing.

Doing a little studio cleaning today, and there is art *everywhere* in this space, tucked, stacked, holding evidence of colorful visual stories… This is a little piece my man made for me some years ago that I’ve pulled back out of the shadows. I think it’s the inevitable nature of artist couples to influence one another’s styles and approaches over time… Or at the very least, our ways of seeing connections, discord, potential and beauty.

Just a few more days on the early-bird deal for Making Art Medicine 2016 – the single sessions or the whole series. Come create, reflect and connect with me and others interested in the medicine and beauty of a devoted creative art practice!

This pretty much sums up my week: Nourish and work on the launch for Spectrum 2016 next week!! This year we’re starting with giveaways before registration, and I can hardly keep all the goodness to myself… The teachers are *so* amazing, and their offerings full of love and brilliant inspiration! I can tell you who they are next Wednesday.

I’m exploring monthly New Moon themes in my creative practice this year, and thought I’d invite all of you along, if you’d like to play. January’s invitation is out since the new moon lands tomorrow, in earthy Capricorn. The theme for reflection is DEDICATION, perfect for this season of initiating change. You might enjoy exploring ideas of lineage, ancestors, maps, tending foundations and boundaries, or simply declaring new or re-shaped beginnings. More details and prompt ideas RIGHT HERE, including how to share what comes up in your practice in a link-up between this new moon and the next. We can share on IG too, with #holisticcreative or #artpracticemoonmagic tags.

 

I decided to stick with these weekly ‘snippet’ round-ups for the New Year after all. So you can find them here most Saturdays, or you can follow and play along, in-process, over at Instagram.

Hope your year is off to a creative start!
