I don't like that word. Seriously, it makes me feel like I am in trouble. I think the word self-mastery or willpower is a bit easier to swallow? However, this is the word I am wrestling with this week. It is following me. Do you have tag along words in your life too?
In taking some time off this summer I have caught myself running at half speed. I thought for a week it was my age (lol!), and then I thought it was the too-warm temperatures. Nope. It is my un-disciplined creative self. She decided to put her feet up and stay awhile.
The dreamer, dawdler, over-thinker. Does she come stay with you sometimes?
Well, it is time to get going. I am finally back to my renewed discipline of daily starts & finishes. Yes!
Little projects are humming along.
Piles of canvases I played with this summer are heaping up ~ all bright and light. I love the way the things I did in my art journal this spring spilled out in new art. Have you experienced this as well? Isn't that cool? At times when I get lost on a project, when I can't figure out to do, I go to my art journals and see what inspired me before.
Brilliant treasures ~ our sweet art journals!
Our art journals are our best resource material. They are our own pinterests!
They carry our trials & errors, our heart-felt creations, and most favorite...favorites. Colors, styles, lines, content, all collected in those sweetly bound (and unbound) pages. Can you tell I love them? I do, I do.
They carry what hearts and heads have generously shared ~ they are who we are.
In my new hyper-disciplined state this month -- I opened all of my art journals, sketchbooks, and favorite reads. I collected all the jots & tiddles I have made over the past year and created our next Wild Art Workshop.
Yes~ It is time for the next Wild Art Workshop this fall!
I am beyond excited to have all this ready to go...it is all my heart wants to do. I am thrilled at the chance to share my passion with you, and I hope that you will mark your calendar for time to dig into your wild side again with me. The content is new and it just as funky-fun ~ Seriously, this is a class I want to take!
I hope your summer days are filled with wild inspirations ~ I would love to see!
In God's love and gesso~
