It has been a while since I updated this blog,- summer flew by visiting family, some vacationing, and a recent Society of Layerists in Multi media conference in Atlanta. It was a wonderful gathering of like- minded artists sharing ideas, techniques, offering solutions to challenges. We were inspired doing a couple of workshops; one using collage, and a Zentangle workshop. The Society of Layerists is a term to denote those artists who are more interested in cooperation, sharing, and holism, rather than competition. We understand the truth which both scientists, theologians, agree on, that we are all connected in myriad ways, and what happens to one part affects everything else. I am happy to serve on the Board of this organization and do what I can to further understanding and expression of our premise of holism.
I work in several mediums and lately have been enjoying painting on plastic and applying heat, which causes the plastic to bubble up in various ways. I find this exciting and will continue to work on this process. The Creative energy within is always finding different ways of expression and new ideas emerge when we least expect them. This is a glorious way to live; remaining awake and alert to intuition! More and more I feel a deep connection to all that is, and this brings with it more peace, contentment, and real joy.
