Studio Day Monday

It was a busy day in the Queen of Arts Studio.


Pumpkin and I began the day with the Deepak and Oprah Manifesting Grace through Gratitude Meditation.

We are on day 8 and I am quite impressed with myself for not missing a single day !

Then I headed to the work table and continued work on this intuitive painting piece. Its a 20X20” canvas.

Its gone through quite a few transformations but I am liking the final orange version quite a lot !


IMG_2514The pics don’t quite get the vibrancy of the orange nor do they pick  up the gold metallic touches that I added here and there.


It was a little grey today so maybe I will try and get more pics tomorrow but I love the little details…

IMG_2518  I also did this page in my new journal.

It was a struggle !

I have been taking the Happy Painting class by Juliette Crane and it has made me play around with different materials and different ways of painting faces and I am kind of lost in the mish mash of styles right now.


I kept at it and pulled out the old dip pen and the inks and put my own messy style on page.

IMG_2523 In the end I decided to just let it be what it is for now.

Its definitely not my favorite page and I was kind of disappointed that it was the first one in my new Moleskine journal.

But then again, I have to remember that journaling is not all about making pretty art.

Its about taking the time to do heart art.


So f*** off, Inner Critic.

The page stays as is ! I will not be taking your advice to rip it out of the book.  ;)


While letting the paint dry on both of the other pieces,

IMG_2506  I decided to spend part of the afternoon stitching.

Stitching and watching a movie.

I watched “Words and Pictures” with Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen.

I give the movie a 6.8 out of ten.

The movie played with the question of whether words or pictures are more important in and of course, there was a bumpy romance in the story as well. A pretty good chick flick.

Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.

And my jeans are starting to look pretty badass, no ?


I feel so lucky to have had this day to play.

Tomorrow will be filled with errands and such, and then Wednesday, I will be packing.

Heading north to visit my Quebec peeps and get a bit of that Northern Summer beauty.

Really excited to hug some of my special people up there ! I miss them a lot !

Happy Monday, Beautiful Ones !

And in the end…

This is the last page in my Moleskine 12X8.5 watercolor journal.

I have worked and played in it on and off for about three years.


Lots of song lyrics were running through my head as this final page emerged…


“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”

“We’re just two lost souls, living in a fish bowl, year after year.”

“Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am, stuck in the middle with you.”



In the end, I will just let the Beings speak for themselves.


Close the book on this chapter.


And get ready to move on to the new.


Happy Friday, Beautiful Ones ! And to my American friends, Happy Fourth of July weekend ! Make merry and be safe !

Round here…

Round here…


we meditate like this.


Round here…


pages get filled with inner wisdom


bubbling up to the surface as we play.


Learning to love it all.


Happy Wednesday, Beautiful Ones !
