Angels & Faeries Week: Spirit Doll

Angel Week 1

Welcome to Angels and Faeries Week!  I am celebrating the countdown to the grand opening of Angels In My Studio 2013 by sharing some of my favorite winged, spirited, and energetic artwork. Angels In My Studio 2013 is a 5 month online class that goes to that space where art and mystery, creativity and imagination meet.  As part of the art course, each week you will be invited to explore angelic imagery through art and guided meditations.

Featuring My Spirit Dolls

One of my favorite ways to find inspiration is within my own art.  Often I will do a doodle, sketch, drawing, or painting and some element will jump out at me.  That then inspires exploration of the element.  I might take that into a poem, a new drawing, a sculpture, or song.

The doll above is made of cardboard, tissue paper, and mixed media.  She is in-process.  There are a few more elements to be added but I am letting them simmer.  She originally came out of a drawing I was doing after a conversation that I had with my friend Kakali about near death experience.  I love that she is looking within.  When I hold her in my hand, she inspires me to look within myself.

This is a poem that bloomed from looking within.

I absolutely love how one work of art has inspired another which inspired another.  Perfect!

Heart Wisdom

Heart Notes
Hearts are tender….
They open and close like flowers chasing the sun,
resting quietly in the shadow.
sunny tree
Hearts are strong, resilient, and re-storing.
Hearts are vessels which hold love, dispense love, receive love.
heart of steel
They quiver gratefully in the presence of grace and resonate with courage
when witnessing the need of another which is in any degree greater than our own need.

Tonight my heart is all of this….quivering, blooming, courageous, and profoundly tender.

For this night’s sleep, I will cradle it in the rocking of my chest as I breathe
and marvel at its ability to be all I need it to be.
Deep peace…..

Dreamcatchers

One of my favorite art projects recently was one I did for the gals at Paint Mojo Texas.  It was a labor of love for sure.  I made 20 little wire dreamcatchers to give to them during the retreat.  I chose dreamcatchers because I wanted something that reflected the word Mojo.  And dreamcatchers, a few days before Halloween, did just that.

I worked on an extra one today that is going out in the mail to a friend who I originally met on the blog I had before Creativity Tribe. She has been an integral part of this dream for me, supporting, encouraging, sharing her wisdom and creativity.  She is one of the tribe’s wise women. I hope she enjoys it.

 

These little webs are close to my heart.  I would love to continue making and sharing them as I build the web that will catch my big, beautiful dreams.

This last dreamcatcher is also my offering for today’s Art Every Day Month Challenge. I have been doing a bit of art each day but have chosen to hold onto a few items for special projects.  Girl’s gotta have her secrets!

Art Every Day Month is a movement, inspiring artist around the blogosphere! Head over and see what they are up to today!  Then, consider joining us.  It is a small act that makes a big different.  Creativity…….. engage!

Textures {Long Way Home Series}

 

I am on the road this weekend, tackling three bucket list items.  First, attend an art retreat.  Second….visit the Texas Hill Country.  Three….study with an artist that inspires me.  In this case, Australian artist Tracy Verdugo.  I promise to tell you all about it!

To celebrate this adventure of my gypsy spirit, I have a few pictures for the Long Way Home Series with a focus on textures. I picked texture because Tracy’s art reminds me of the textures I imagine our spirits or souls to have.  Fun, huh?

The brick walkway along the water’s edge near the bay a mile from my home has begun to decay from exposure to the elements.  To my eyes it creates an elegant abstract.

The surface of my studio table is covered with a plain brown paper. Over time, color builds up to create a visual texture that encourages my mind to make images out of them. Often the doodles take on inspirational messages which invite me into a better way of thinking or acting. They encourage me to grow, and in this case, to have faith.

Even light can create texture where we might think there is none. This bridge which has been fitted with lights that put on nightly shows has become a beacon.  It leads me home after a long travel.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend. Tell me, what is something that is on YOUR bucket list?
