Paint Mojo

I had an awesome weekend learning from and being inspired by the talented and very sweet Tracy Verdugo in Austin a couple of weeks ago. The techniques she taught us were really fun and freeing.

Creating shapes and symbols known to *me*, while she read poetry to inspire new marks, watching the colors flow together… ah, the magic!

Then finding images within abstract marks…

Made for a fun way to spend a weekend, AND inspiration to last a lifetime.

I walked away feeling light and accomplished. Thanks Tracy!

Of course, the icing on the cake was being able to create again next to and hang out with my good pal Marti….

and to learn from and grow with a whole new group of awesome artists.

I’m totally cheating! This experiment so far has proven that I have a hard time putting myself “out there” day after day AND…. I’m a procrastinator!! I say I’m going to paint, and then I don’t. I let laundry, work-outs, paying projects and organizing “stuff” get in the way… Okay, here I go. Time. to. begin. Again. 

That little hummingbird (Mr. Big Eye) I just did in the last few days. The other 2 were done weeks ago. 

Because I missed yesterday, today there are two.
