trying a different approach

Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better Ralph Waldo Emerson

I bought new brushes that aren’t intended for painting, they’re make-up brushes. I think they worked out great! A lot of great movements and texture.

Trying a different approach. I encourage you to do the same!

in the search to find the story and the land of my grandparents, I have learned of the pain that has been carried and passed down for generations.

don’t hold your breath

learning to flow, using my art journal 

I have returned to my art roots and have decided to share my work  (refer to Show Your Work by Austin Kleon).

years ago my mother’s death inspired haunting night dreams that I wrote down, that I needed to express through art.  This art became Inside the Belly of the Whale, which has taken several forms,  from a gallery installation exhibition, to a DVD, to its current form, a journal.

I’m choosing to share the work from my art journal weekly.  My hope is to create a space for self-expression in all of its many forms because I believe art heals.
