WOohoo!! We made it! Another year has passed, and we are here to embrace all that is new!! 2015 I decided I am going to be ridiculously happy!! I don't care what I do just that I need to laugh a lot everyday. I think that is important. Whatever it is..
On the art side: I'm working on some new art, combining line drawing with digital painting.. I'm allowing my experimentation with new techniques guide me to fit my life. Instead of trying to force an idealistic vision into a artistic life so I flipped it around. I started using the sensu brush on my ipad. Depending on the application you can really create some great effects with more of a painterly feel. I also am teaming up with Mindy Lacefield over at Tim Sally to create a online guest teaching video. If this goes well for me, I will be committed to create more teaching videos on that.
On letting go: I've also started the year deciding that happiness will take work, it involves a committed daily ritual for my health, creativity, emotional and physical. It means that I have a list of things I like to get accomplished this year. It's throw up worthy and there are deadlines and financial commitments. So it is no easy task. But the last two years proven highly transformative and successful for me personally, I've developed a system that works for me. I find that it is great to have mentor or coaching help but the most powerful person is you and your values. Also trust, and carving time out to get it done.. So I'm just going to stick it through and hope for some pops!!! Desire, vision, mission statements, commitment and actions is all you need.
On Forest Foundry Collective: is doing amazing things! We are currently preparing for surtex collections for MAY 2015 NYC! There a lot of other things happening with the group this year. I'm fantastically excited for us. With our humble racing hearts even with our differences we are able to harmonize and continue on a vision for our group. Through action, love and compassion it is possible to work even harder, smarter, faster and better. We truly or phenomenal and innovative for being so far apart with different timelines still we manage this. This is the power of love of what you do. I've learned so much from everyone that I feel like I have a garden in my soul keeping me grounded and nourished for my art career!! For everyone chasing their artistic endeavors and stepping outside your current boundaries to explore and play. Do it often!! Especially the Art moms! Wishing everyone, joy, health and wealth for the new year!!
