Wallowa, that is so terrific...

I am sorry I have not been here on the team to support you in the Artistss Way. I finished awhile back pretty much alone with the support of another team that had some members that had done The Artists Way. Great Artists Date. . .

My artist's date Sunday is to go looking for places to recommend to our en plein air painters this summer. (I'm putting together a dozen spots, close in and further away, so out of towners can experience the varied ecosystems of our county during their painting show.

Checking in with some progress. Completed my illustrated poetry chapbook and sent 5 copies to a reading in Bend, Oregon. One sold!



Continue drawing, usually daily.

Learned rudimentary animation (with Paint and PowerPoint, lots of fun!)


Shared 3 framed pictures with Iberian Horse Rescue for their online raffle - raised $206 for their rescue winter hay supply for rescued horses.

Was encouraged to and DID enter 3 drawings in a women's art show/sale (that also benefits the arts center) locally. Even if none are accepted, (will know next week) I DID it! It's not about the money (well, yes, it is, but it's more about the excitement of doing something new, even just a little bit new.)

English dance workshops start tomorrow. Only $20 for the lessons and the Gala Ball if there are enough participants.

Despite delays, starting a ceramics class next Monday... have some ideas - a roman lamp, pendants, poetry slabs, a mosaic surround for my fire place, who knows what else? And lots of drawing designs.

yes, interested in another round... have been monitoring to see if there was one planned. in any case, I'm planning to do some "self coaching" that involves brainstorming "what I want, at least 6 solutions to that want (alternative ways I can get it) and creating a 3 week action plan". Anyone else interested? It's much easier to have other people popping in with what they want to create, and their alternatives and ideas for action steps, than to go it alone!) Any interest? We could create a thread and try it for, say, a month.

emoticon Hello fellow Artists! How is everyone doing?

Fall weather has finally given us a break from the yucky humid hot weather here in Mississippi, and I can feel my spirit responding. emoticon I have started walking again, and I'm feeling better already.

Does anyone have an interest in beginning a group round of The Artist's Way?

Hey, there! I would like to start morning pages again. I'm game. I found another Artist's Way person in my area and we are discussing some of the chapters in the book. She is an excellent artist, too. It's great to have her to bounce things off of. It's also wonderful to have my Artist's Way spark buddies. Happy creating, everyone!

emoticon emoticon emoticon Good morning!

Another sunny and hot day on tap for us here in Mississippi. Today is my Friday because I am off tomorrow. Woo hoo! I'm planning on going out to a new walking trail the city made in our park early in the morning. It winds through some woods and around a little pond, and I'm actually looking forward to walking it.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Exercise is one of the hardest things for me. Most of my life is spent sitting down - all day at the office and all evening at home when I'm stitching or on the computer. It is pretty overwhelming to me sometimes to make myself do something I rarely do, get up and move. Plus it means I have to give up some of my beloved stitching time. I found this motivating thought on the internet, and I thought I would share it.

"Iíll Feel Better Once I Get Started - The hardest part of working out is usually getting started. Sometimes the idea of going from sitting or sleeping to jumping up and down and sweating is so overwhelming, we can't imagine bridging that gap.

This is the time to remind yourself that you'll feel better once you start moving. There may be some discomfort at first as you get your heart rate up but, that initial discomfort fades as your body warms, your temperature rises and blood flows into your muscles. When the endorphins kick in, you'll feel even better and, at the end of the workout, you'll get more satisfaction because you worked out even though it was hard."

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday!

Hugs,
Lisa

Dwelling in guilt is like living your life with an anchor tied to your ankles dragging you down.

Giving ourselves permission to feel at peace with our past actions is one of the most positive steps we can take toward living a life free from regrets, disappointments, and guilt. The more we are able to remind ourselves that the true path to a peaceful mind and heart is through acceptance of every part of our lives and actions, the more harmony and inner joy we will experience in all aspects of our lives.

I made a light beef stew. I had some small pieces if stew meat. I sauted in garlic and olive oil. then put in small pieces of potato, carrots, celeary and frozen edamame beans with some water and a teaspoon of low-sodium powered grave mix to thicken it. I wonder if this is a low-fat healthy meal. Any comments?

When we are willing to look at all the possibilities, we also become willing to accept that there is room for more than we can imagine.

I find that relying on my imagination limits me in ways I don't even realize. How can I imagine something of which I have no concept? Instead, if I allow the Universe in, I can feel great expansion and openness, and new things come in.

I am going to Sedona AZ on Monday, to take a Reiki Drumming Class, and I'm very excited about it. I have never been to Sedona, but it is a place I have always wanted to go. emoticon

Good morning Artists!

Woo hoo! Five days in a row I have sat down with my morning pages! I'm off tomorrow, so now comes my weekend. I tend to feel like I have more time, so there isn't the urgency to sit down RIGHT NOW and write, so a lot of times the weekends are when my good intentions slip. I am challenging myself, and I am accepting that challenge, to write my morning pages first thing for the next three days.

How is your week going? I would love to hear from you!

Hugs,
Lisa

Good morning Artists!

I wanted to create a thread where we could all get together and talk about whatever is on our minds. emoticon

Feel free to post how you are feeling about the week you are on, your successes with morning pages and artist dates, your blocks, your vents, your joys, your gratitudes, whatever you want! I hope this will be a place where we can get to know one another, support each other, and have fun as we grow.
