Playing in the Studio..

I facilitate a women's art support group twice a month at my studio....it's called the Medicine Art Group.  Art making is a medicine when we open to its ability to transform and soothe our souls.  

We have been working on intention setting since the begin of the new year, using art as a way to visualize our intentions.  This past week we moved into creating Affirmation Cards as a way to support our intentions for the New Year and as reminders to hold positive thoughts.   It was so much fun, I plan to keep making them myself, perhaps a whole deck of them.  Here are the ones I created on Friday.




I am facilitating an Encaustic Weekend at my studio, next Sat. and Sunday, so this past weekend I have been having so much fun getting prepared for it.

I have been cleaning wax off of brushes, rearranging,  making encaustic medium and altogether having a great time, priming the pump so to speak. It seems like part of my creative process is to periodically, organize, revision, clean and renew my enviornment.  

 I am excited by the possibility of doing more encaustic classes, and am begining to see myself moving more and more into my artist life, now that I am no longer teaching at the JC.  I am beginning to revision the layoff as a positive...an opportunity to really live my dream and make a financial success from it.   

My affirmation cards, tie into this, by opening to abundance coming to me as I grow my dreams, out of the simple pleasures that fill my soul....all the while allowing for Great  Mystery to provide the details.

I will post photos from the Encaustic workshop next week, so stay tuned.

Hi Cyndee,
Actually I am opening the group to a few more members. It meets alternating Fridays from 12:30-3:30. Next time we meet is March 6th. Email me privately @ cmm@sonic.net and I can give you more details or call the studio number 707 538-4696 and we can talk and find out if it fits your schedule. Warmly....Caterina

I sure wish that I could join you - I would be there in a heartbeat! It is the 3000 mile commute that keeps me from your studio.

I love these beautiful images. thank you for the inspiration...

Hi Julie,
I wish you could join as well....ahh distance is in the mind.. Make a set of affirmation cards for yourself...and imagine a circle of women supporting you as you do it. My best to you.
