A brave new world

A brave new world
January 26, 2013 Sue

This week I will be venturing out into a brave new world for me. If you have been following my posts here you will know that my word for this year ( instead of New Year Resolutions) is CREATE. I felt that I was at a time and place to experiment with some new mediums and to spend more time in the studio actually creating and filling my soul.

So that is exactly what I have been planning. This week I will begin an online painting course with Flora Bowley and a group of other creative souls learning to paint intuitively. I had purchased Flora’s book several months ago and was intrigued with her process so when  this class became available I jumped on it. Basically, painting intuitively is reaching deep down and painting whatever comes to mind and out on the canvas. Not your traditional landscape or still life. This will be way out of my comfort zone but it sounds like fun!

In anticipation of the class starting, Flora posted this video which was just amazing and I thought would be great to share. It is a wonderful example of her process. I can only hope that I can begin to paint in this manner- wish me luck!

    I love Sue how you have decided to push out of your comfort zone. I so look forward to seeing your masterpieces. 🙂

    Flora’s video really comes to touch me deeply. I cannot wait to join you in this class Sue. I can’t believe that we have just a few more days and we’ll be there.

      Susan- ME TOO! I think there’s something hiding inside waiting to come out. I’m just not sure what it is.

  4. I like the video but I know that I couldn’t be creative with technology around. When I was filmed for my Master’s I ended up tossing out one of my favorite outfits. Now if I could just accept my body a bit more. Thanks for the share. I especially loved the in and out between the painting and the inspirational phrases.

      Sheila- I’m going to have to leave the computer in another room for sure!

  5. PS. What font do you use for your site. It’s very restful but different enough to be interesting.

      Sheila- I’m pretty sure the font is “Coming Soon”. I’m glad that you liked it, it was hard to find something that was different but not too crazy. Thanks

    I saw this video earlier from your FB share and watched it. This was such a great video. I think you are going to have such fun with that course. I thought of you yesterday when I was creating pieces for my Tao Te Ching quotes. I thought of that video. Super cool share. Thx.
