First Squares themes in my work, then triangles and now I’ve move up to the elusive CIRCLE…. This was sosoooooo much fun! The brown is a paint Sample from Home Depot, Martha Stuart Collection called Potting soil and now I know why…they texture feels just like rough dirt when paint smoothly or with a knife, I used both methods. it cost me 5$ at Home Depot and will last forever, so check out the paint sample section that people use to “try out” paints on their walls to see if they like it or not, and DON’T forget to look at the remnant bin where all the “mistakes” go and you can get a gallon of paint for $5!!
So here’s my newest “work” which I hate to call my pieces “Work” because I have so much fun doing them!! This one was a blast. Think I might play with circles for awhile…..just like the good old days in the sand box….”dirt” paint and all!!

I don’t know how to start talking about this book. The quotes I’m afraid if I began listing, the entire book would be there for you.
It’s changed my life and my outlook and I’m so blessed that the Universe led me to this writer, whom I”m now in love with, and the words he had to share. Thank you muses, God, Angels, or whatever you may call them, they wrote this book, they created my last piece. The trick of The War of Art is how to get out of their way and your own and get to the work that they have planned for you.. I’ve never worked harder than while reading this book. I just may have to read it again to get ready for a show 🙂 Enjoy and please take part in the poll below. Would love to hear from other readers whether it affected you in the same way it did me or if it bored y ou to tears…. But for me one paraphrase….Our job is to find out who we are and get busy becoming that person. How can I stay out of the studio after reading that!
Here are the same holes but painted….the bead and wiring will come last….
So in the last week we’ve gone from this to this…….Gotta long way to go so back to the studio….
If you like this piece or Post “LIKE” it below or share it with friends on facebook or just leave a comment….Would love to hear from you!! WK
This is a small board measuring about 6”x6” and it’s the first of three that will go together as a series. I’ve discovered this new medium called Iridenscent Medium and I just love love love it. If you haven’t tried it run out and get it!
“The centerpiece of a meaningful life for creators is meaningful creating.”
The above quote is from Eric Maisel’s book, Van Gough Blues, in which Maisel asserts that very often, depression in creative people can often be remedied by re-discovering the meaning in one’s life and one’s art. I certainly resonate with this idea, and believe that it is important for our creative projects to have personal meaning, on one level or another.
Very often, meaningful creative intentions are the bridge between thinking, “Oh, I wish I had more time to do creative things” and actually taking the time to engage in a regular practice of creativity.
What do I mean by “meaningful creative intentions”? It’s simple: projects that provide personal meaning for you, outside of simply just being “creative”, are YOUR meaningful creative intentions. Examples include things like:
- making handmade gifts for others
- creating for charity
- creating handmade items to decorate your home
- creating art to honor someone’s memory
- participating in a creative collaboration
- creating with a larger goal in mind
These projects can be fun, simple, and spontaneous. Sometimes projects that are “out of the blue” are, indeed, the very best way to get “out of the blues”.
Creativity, meaning, and time dance together in an unavoidable and rather effective cycle: the more meaningful your creative projects are to you, the more you’re likely to engage in them. Then, the more you are engaging your creativity, the more creative ideas you’ll be having for more meaningful creative projects.
In other words, creativity begets creativity! And, of course, regularly making the time for your creativity cements its importance in your life.
If you would like more support in engaging in meaningful creative projects, this Artellagram includes several resources that might be helpful. SARK’s Dream Boogie is still open for enrollment until Tuesday, and is a fabulous opportunity to diving into your creativity heart-first. Also, the free Conscious Awakenings Life Purpose Telesummit that begins next week is overflowing with inspiration for connecting to what really matters most. And the calendART project in the Creativity Tips section is a practical way to bring more meaningful creativity in your day to day life. Information about all these nifty adventures follows below!
For those short on time, to simplify this week’s Artellagram, here are some ”quick links” to the highlights in this edition. You can simply follow the links that you’re interested in and go directly to that section.
