The Holidays seem to go by fast in my neighborhood. I didn’t travel anywhere this Christmas season. Instead I stayed home and attended to some chores on my to-do list.
So, with the old year leaving and the new year coming, I thought about some New Year goals. What did I want to do more of and how would I decide to cut a few things loose to make those goals happen?
2018 numerically represented endings and things coming to the light, especially in learning the truth about a number of things. On the collective scale this was certainly true. Governments across the globe have been hiding truths from much of their populations and these truths came to light in many countries including our own before the end of 2018.
I try to stay informed on such matters, but by no means am I politically minded. The Bigger Collective tends to help me when I am doing tarot or palm readings for folks within some of the seekers questions. Although I do very little predictive work, we all need to be mindful we co-inhabit this planet with each other.
2019 is said to be the year of creativity, molding and shaping your vision for the year and for the future-the next chapter in our personal stories.
Personally, I want to create more art this year and set up an e-commerce store. I gave up my commercial studio space last August and I have been challenged to finding space at home to feel the painting flow. So most of the work you are seeing on my sites are of the digital variety. I don’t need the table space for all my paints, pencils and inks. That being said, I love feeling the tools of live painting in my hands. Goal #1- finding that space to create.
In the meantime i will continue doing my digidoodles.
I have had some really amazing comments on my instagram page working on a Christmas Challenge.
I love working on challenges, they get me motivated in short order to keep moving with an image. Most of the challenges I have worked on over the years go on for a month. If the prompts for the day inspire me I usually will make it through the month. If the prompts are more hand painting then I usually unravel relatively early.
The Christmas challenge was pretty light and relatively easy for me to find and be inspired by the prompts.
These 3 images had the most views during the challenges. I think the reindeer prompt was one of my favorites to create.
Most people are amazed to learn that I create most of the images on my iPhone or iPad with several apps. I move those images onto my desktop and run them through Photoshop to add type and sometimes backgrounds.
Here’s a pic of what my station looks like most days. New tools for a new day. But I still miss my paint and brushes.
Time to create, Happy January 2019
