Art Prompt: Fear to Faith

Uncategorized Jun 05, 2020
 

We're going to use three simple drawings to explore fear, faith, feelings, freedom and what arises when we are present in our centers.

Instructions:

Draw three simple four petaled flowers. And connect each flower with actual experiences:

  • Flower One: A personal upset (likely physical) that impacted your feminine center. (No need to pick a super intense one here.)
  • Flower Two: A collective event (Covid or Black Lives Matter?)
  • Flower Three: A Positive change that you are considering

Then using your watercolor pencil, move use adding of color to each section to connect and name the truths that are there. Color with your non dominant hand and write with your dominant hand. Try to do both at the same time as much as you can.

  • Bottom petal: Connect and name with the physical experience of the fear
  • Top petal: Name the longing that is connected to this experience
  • Left petal: Feel and name what it's like to be stuck in fear in this event
  • Right petal: Feel and name what a creative free...

Art Prompt: For your Business

art along experience Apr 29, 2020

Ironically, once an entrepreneurial business is in motion it's almost impossible to carve out big retreats of time to vision and plan! Luckily, for those of us following a feminine (muse-led) model, what we usually actually need is a simple nudge - a subtle readjustment to roll us in the right direction and then the momentum will carry us forward. 

This last week, for my Giddy Up crew I revisited a favorite collage divination prompt of mine. For this simple session you use collage as an oracle to help you see what you haven't been seeing about your business.  I don't want to ruin the game by sharing the key before you collage but I will say that the poetic information I found in my towers completely opened up the floodgates with clear actions for what's next.  I hope you have the same experience! 

I've got the PDF up where you can grab it. No sign in required but I do hope you'll share what you discover:

Art Prompt: Fool Hardy

art Apr 01, 2020
 

All you'll need for this first foolhardy leap is a magazine, scissors and glue. (Watch video above).


Second Step. Grab that magazine and your scissors and let's head out on a treasure hunt. (Don't glue those 9 circles down. We're revisiting them in part 3.)


Third Step: You just need glue and gumption for this final leap!


Post Script

Okay. I've got to laugh at invoking the Fool and then trying to be correct!  Those three circles? I was - delightfully - mostly wrong in my translations.

As I went through my days I saw the broom show up where it was important to pay attention (not just for clearing). I saw the patterns in a new project that I wouldn't have anticipated. And the glass took on a whole different meaning after an unexpected experience.

Stay open and in conversation. The Fool has information for you!

Let's explore "The Tower"

audio Mar 15, 2020

There's just nothing like the freedom of being flung from the rigid stand you were taking. It's a bit bumpy...but better!

Mystic Tune Up (available with a monthly subscription) is one of my most favorite extended journal courses. Turns out I was a smarty pants while pregnant with Hazel! In this class we take a creative pass through the Tarot and the evolutionary sequence of the Major Arcana. Each "week" has a delicious diverse selection of prompts based on the themes, inherent inquiries and the gestalt of the card at hand. Videos, audio recordings, and simple written instructions alternate through the 160 prompts in this 22 card series. 

There's no way to find out what messages you'll receive without flinging yourself into the experience! Let's jump to the Tower:


PART ONE

Your instructions are to create three tower possibilities - a random magazine column for each. Gently cut out the top of the tower and then turn your attention to finding a conversation that is contained in...

On Transfering Lines

art along experience peek Feb 01, 2020

How do you spend your art time? Why do you make art? The biggest shortcut I take is that 7 times out of 10, when I'm creating a painting, I start by following the lines of a person in a photo. I coooooould be spending my art time teaching myself to draw by hand. But that part is a bit yawn for me. My favorite parts are playing with the paint as it layers on the canvas and finding the story that my developing character wants to share. So I jump right to those parts!

There are some seriously crazy ways to transfer images out there. Light machines, unwieldy tracing paper, a ridiculous technique where you lay down matte medium and then rub it away with water. Gracious, I don't want to spend my time doing any of that either! The easy peasy way is to use charcoal (esp on a canvas) or even colored pencil if you're in your journal:

Following the shape, choosing what to accent and what to adjust, feeling the grace of a curve, noticing the lift of a line - fun!
