We've certainly covered a lot of ground over school holidays, all Sydney local fun. Lots of exploring our history at North Head, my new painting went out into the big wide world to Late September in Glenbrook. I channelled my inner cow girl at the new and beautiful shop Bella Boheme in Springwood and of course my students and I explored some "Heart Art". Thank you to young Isabel who sent me a shot of her gorgeous work on her art wall at home.
My new painting has the longest name ever! But when I tried to rename it especially to make it easier for Sam at Late September (who is the poor person who has to say the name when anyone enquires about it) I just couldn't. From very early on in the painting process this became it's name without any doing of mine.
Angels Have Wings Because They Are Not Afraid To Fly
The idea of flight and believing in yourself is such an exciting prospect. Fear stops a lot of us from doing many things. It is often the fear of failure that prevents us from living true to who we are. Fear also gets in the way of creativity too, being fearful of making mistakes or creating something from within your very being that may not be accepted or liked by others. I don't believe in being fearless, this quite often comes with risky choices or dangerous outcomes but to step into your fear, acknowledge it and walk through it carefully to the other side, reaps such great rewards. I'm quite taken by the idea that Angels own their wings, were given them because they always had faith in knowing how to use them. What beautiful things were you given that you are not afraid to take flight with?
My new painting can be found at the lovely Sam's at Late September in Glenbrook.
Prints of my paining can be found in my Redbubble shop.
This Week In Photos.........
What a week (or two). Sydney put on a show with "Vivd". Some paintings were delivered to Late September in Glenbrook. A new amazing, awesome and exciting shop is opening in Springwood called Bella Boheme ,they are live on line to shop (gosh I know some clever people in the Blue Mountains). Sydney turned it on for our long weekend, look at the colour of that water! One of my art works on a scarf SHOP and last but not least, my boy is in Jerusalem, jealous? You bet I am!
Another Grateful Moment.
Any form of success is not complete unless it is followed with gratitude. Gratefulness, to the support of friends and family and gratitude for those who are part of your definition of success, which in my case are the people who love my paintings so much that they part with their hard earned money to own one. Thank you to the beautiful Sam from Late September for her ongoing and unwavering support of my art work. I am back at the easel enjoying being busy after she has sold all my pieces. Love and light to all.

New Painting....Dream Tribe
I am very happy that I have finished another painting. I had hoped to evoke new imagery but another lady appeared, unintentionally. I was mentioning this to a dear friend of mine and she said "Maybe you are creating a tribe". I loved that idea and so "Dream Tribe" was born. Filled with symbols and shapes depicting strength, unity and spirituality this dream scape is bound to the mountains tomorrow to the beautiful shop Late September. If you would like a print of her, have a look at my Redbubble shop where you can find Dream Tribe on all my products.
I found this quote today and it got me thinking (how, on so many different levels) of it's truth. Not only of the people in our lives (as well as those that are not present in our lives anymore) but in my case with my paintings. Creativity is such a vulnerable and personal road, one that can leave you very attached (with love) to the end result. Each one of my paintings is like a little birth of something within me and over the last few months I have had to learn this lesson of letting them go, quicker than what is my usual practice (gratitude to Late September, as she has a clever ability in selling them). My blessing with this quote is that if I know how to love, I will never run out!
Samantha from Late September posted this lovely photo of "Spiritual Warrior" on her Instagram account. I love my art hanging on her shop walls.
