Wild Surrender online class

"The creative process is a process of surrender, not control" - Julia Cameron

I believe that when we surrender control of the creative process, we can reach higher realms in this journey. We become one with the process and in the process harness our own divine/creative light. Allow yourself to surrender to the outcome. Allow it to evolve and grow the divine spark inside you. I believe in doing so, we can share and inspire others. And the creative circle goes round, growing brighter and brighter.
Wild Surrender is a 6 month class. It is very much like True Free Spirit in that there will be a project each month. However, Wild Surrender is for only 6 months. Plus, 3 of the months there will be a bonus video from a guest artists, Nolwenn Petitbois, Micki Wilde, and Magaly Ohika. I'm so thrilled to share their techniques with you. 
Please head on over to their blogs. They have lots to offer this coming year and I'm so grateful that they are contributing to this class.

The lovely, amazing Nolwenn Petitbois. She has been such a light in my life.
Excited for you guys to see her collaborate with her 2 daughters Koala and Grenouille. 
Let me tell you, you guys are going to LOVE watching these little hands work (along with Momma) 
Pure Magic happens! January guest Artist

The talented, gorgeous Micki Wilde. Watching her create is intoxicating.
So thrilled for you to see her in action. February guest artist.

other for a while on etsy. I discovered her work back in 2009.

Cost: $75
Projects: 6 projects from me, and 3 bonus projects from Nolwenn, Micki, and Magaly.

Don't go

Something very special happened in my studio the other day. As I was re-visiting works in progress, a black poodle appeared. Through tears and paint, I finished the piece. Spent from emotion, my studio time was cut a bit short. Before I left I wrote these words:

Stars don't fall and stay. 
They are here for a little while 
to shine for a time.
Transformed into something brighter than their physical being...

They are here to bring love 
and you realize how much love YOU can hold.
I don't want you to go....
but I know that you must.

So that you can shine the way you were truly meant to.
To be a beacon.
To be an angel to watch over me.
I now know I never lost you.

I will meet you again and join your light 
and we will shine together.
I love you.

This is dedicated to all my dear friends who have lost fur-babies over the past year or so......Denise, Carissa, Dawn, Jayme, Michelle, Jessica, Pixie, Paula,......and so many other facebook friends that escape me at this moment. ********I knew I would forget some sorry...there were so so many lost - this is also dedicated to Kecia, Laura, Elizabeth, and Lenore. If you have lost a fur-baby please post here and let me know. I want to add you to this list. xoxo******

Each time you lost, I lost all over again. I cried with you and ached for your loss. Oh, but there is love. so much love. And we will see our loved ones again waiting on the rainbow bridge.

This painting is a gift for the lovely Denise Phillips who lost her little dark brown poodle last June. This is for you, little Sidney Matisse Laptop
