Join me in the studio for an amazing weekend of self discovery and freedom as we let go of judgment and grab hold of paint brushes and take a painting journey deep into our souls. We let go of this world and enter the other as we listen to our bodies wisdom, connect with our authentic parts and create paintings from deep inside our authentic core.

Everyone changes as they open up because they are free to create their own authentic art that is meaningful to them. Sharing this weekend with others lets you witness the power and strength of human creativity and how empowering it is to be authentic when we create art and life.

Anyone can do this no previous art experience required. Creativity is always with you and I provide all the art materials and inspiration you need. All you do is come play with the paint and the process caries you from there. Imagine a weekend with no rules, no judgement, no expectations just seeing, feeling and recognizing what wants to come.

Sign up now by emailing me or leaving a comment on this blog. Details about the weekend are below. I look forward to painting together and sharing this non ordinary experience together.

Thank you for your interest, see you there.

This is an amazing painting created by Marianne Wilson Stein during the last workshop. I wanted to share it with all of you. I love her painting and the story that came from it. It is an amazing two days where you are free to create from deep within your heart. I hope you enjoy it as much as we all did. Please click on the painting so you can see the whole thing.

This is a painting I created at a weekend intuitive painting class facilitate by the amazing Carolyn Winkler. I highly recommend. Carolyn and the other participants gave me the space and safety to unlock my own intuitive creativity.

Releasing the Dreams…
In the days before dreams, the world was made of water. It was dark and turbulent. The land was black and rich, full of every mineral, but there were no dreams. The earth goddess was still asleep in the deepest depths of the ocean. The sun god was hardly noticeable. And the world was left without dreams.
Buried deep within the sea was the vessel and the key. It was the way to unlock the land from the ocean and it was full of rich colors. The people of the earth searched and searched for it, but no one could find it. The priestesses were consulted. From their power of intuition they knew how to find the vessel and the key.

The priestesses told the people to find the sea turtle for it had survived for millions of years and he knew where the vessel and the key were hidden. The people called upon the turtle in the blackest depths of the sea to show them where it was.

Once found, the vessel and key floated to the surface and all the dreams that had ever been dreamed and all the dreams still to come were let out of the ocean and floated into the air; uniting the people of the land, water, wind and fire to be as one. To create the world they dream of…
