    Creating Fearlessly Art Journaling

    I fell in love with journaling the day it was introduced to me.  As an adult, I discovered you could create journals that held both words and images.  Mixed media journaling opened self-expression up to me in a whole new way.  My creative spirit and my art in general have never been the same! It has become a tool for ironing out ideas in my professional life, a stress-buster for my personal life, and a go-to source for personal development when I help other Creatives spin their dreams and engage more fully in creative projects. About a month ago I started broadcasting on Periscope.  Periscope is an app that allows you…

    Missing Mojo & The Skull Trade

     Missing Mojo Over the last couple of weeks I have been sharing about the Paint Mojo workshop I went to with Tracy Verdugo.  Last week I showed pictures of the process and got to one part of it that seemed to jump too far ahead….my camera pooped out on me and I just missed a few steps. I found one more image that I want to add. (Judy Witkins….this is especially for you.  Hope it helps you see the process a bit better.  It is a hard process to show.) Let me catch you up…. (for more pics head over to the original Paint Mojo with Tracy Verdugo post.) We…

    In the Studio {Wild Child Art + Chia Seed Yummines}

    Making Art…Making Life The art below is out of my journal that is chronicling my journey since my uterine cancer diagnosis.  When I first drew her, I wasn’t in love with it.  Her hair was a little big and it just didn’t feel like I wanted to.  But then I decided to keep going, which is a great exercise in trusting the creative process. I used my Yasutomo shimmer water colors on her with a few strips of collage paper.  The image is edited to help her show up a bit better for the computer.  In real life she is super shimmery and almost glows. Looking at her now, I…

    Girl About Town

    This month I have been all over the place… quite literally!  My art work is showing in four different venues in my hometown, and I couldn’t be more over the moon!  I can’t help but think back to the days when I first began showing my art.  Having one piece in a show was a big struggle for my self-esteem.  I was an artist, tight in the bud. Fresh out of college, I discovered a local artist co-op, KSpace.  I had taken a few art classes, was doing The Artist’s Way, and decided to follow the impulse of my Creative Spirit.  I took some photos of the little bit of…

    Art Opening {Apocalypse Show}

    A story in images…….. The old Kress Building…now the upstairs studios to the KSpace. Night shot into the studios. A quiet start to the evening. Contemplating Ascension. Ascension, an assemblege by Eric Payne My piece behind the bar. Existentia, mixed media by Rachél Payne Writing in a thank you journal for Michelle Smythe Artist stands beside self portrait…multiple realities. What kind of chaos would await us after the Apocalypse? In what would we find comfort and refuge? Where would our anger rest? Who would stand with us? Congratulations to KSpace Contemporary for their 5 years of keeping the doors open and the art flowing.  A special celebration and thank you, too,…

    Supernova Woman

    The Full Moon was waiting for me when I went outside this evening.  It surprised me.  I had been waiting for her, but I got busy with life.  Before I knew it she was there, hanging out on the edge of the neighborhood, wanting to play.  This is my first full moon after the end of my Touch the Moon e-course.  Offering that class was intense in the best way. It encouraged me to show up daily for several months and be in touch with that celestial beauty in the sky.  In turn, I was more in touch with myself. So here I am, a full moon in the sky…
