In my journey of self exploration in the past two years , I have read many inspirational, self help and metaphysical books . And the one resounding theme in many of them ....is find your passion and follow your heart.
So take baby steps , find out what it is that fills your soul and ignites your light . Finding and working from that energy and that place of joy will start you on your path and lead yo to the next step.
Heres a painting I entered for a Hay House Affirmation Card Contest . Love the affirmation from Hay House . I just added the painting . It was one of the ones chosen for second place.

This weeks photo was done with much sadness as a tribute to one of my daughters close friends who lost her life on Sunday morning .......... another casualty to drunk drivers . Her best friend is also in a coma due to this tragedy . I wrote the poem to try and capture her beauty and gentleness.
Forever in our hearts Crystal .
To see some amazing work visit Texture Tuesday at Kim Klassen's
I'm taking part in this yearlong journey at Willowing and Artist Friends
For the whole year , two different artist teach different techniques that we use to make pages of our own Life Book. What a cool way to record Your Story"
I'm really excited about all the different artists' various styles. Being a traditional oil painter, I am feeling quite a pull to branch out into the mult media techniques.
My first exercise was a bit of a bust though .....as I was quite time challenged and didnt really have time to experiment hopefully that will come later.... Plus I'm soooo used to painting it was totally a stretch to get back to just drawing. So I basically just got it done.
The excercise was to find Goddesses who's qualities you were drawn to. Goddess' who's qualities were somewhat contrasted . I chose Kwan Yin with commpassion, love and enlightment , and Isis ........still feminine and compassionate ..but more assertive in her feminine power , a leader.
Totally looking forward to seeing how my style evolves as I learn the different techniques.
Have a blessed day !
