Hi there! My friend Lori over at Art Camp for Women is currently offering a series called “Art Camp at Home.” She is highlighting various art classes and art projects that you can do for little or no cost… and is celebrating Julie Fei-Fan Balzer’s “Stenciling Live” class this week!
Hello! As 2013 draws to a close and 2014 is about to begin, I am reflecting on what a work-in-progress I am. I’ve been enjoying looking back at where I’ve been, truly savoring the experience of where I am right now, and looking forward to where I want to go next.
I haven’t had much time for art lately, since I have been studying coaching and devoting a lot of time to my studies. I just started this circular canvas and I am so excited by it.
It is 30 inches across – almost as large as a dining table! I love how the edges curve, too. It is soooo cool that it nearly makes me drool!
I am putting a Sri Yantra design on it. The Sri Yantra represents dualities, like the masculine and the feminine, the heavenly and the earthly, the spiritual and the material, the mental and the physical, and so on.
I’ve always liked geometric designs. And I’m finding that the pattern reminds me a bit of the quilts that my grandmother used to make. I’m so glad that I started this piece!
What about you? What are you working on?
I’d love to hear about your works-in-progress … whether it is something you’re studying (like me!) or your artwork or anything under the sun. What are you excited about? What are you doing that makes you so happy you almost want to drool?
Hi there! I hope that you and yours are enjoying the holidays – no matter what flavor you celebrate! Wishing you lots of love and laughter!
Here we are reflecting a bit on 2013 and all we’ve accomplished. How our lives have been changed by the people we’ve met and by what we’ve chosen for ourselves.
One of the things that I’ve been learning during 2013 is the importance of celebrating. Many of my friends have helped me along the way this year, encouraging me to celebrate – and now, at the end of 2013 – I find myself able to initiate the celebration on my own.
