“Owning our Feminine Wisdom”

May 7, 2016 from 10-5pm
316 E Fourth Plain Blvd., Vancouver, WA

We will be working with decorative and hand-made papers on a 10″ by 10″ wood panel to create an abstract portrait of the timeless wisdom within each of us.

Using meditation, music, writing, art and ritual we will gather and reflect upon that which we have received from the divine feminine.

No art experience is needed, just a heart that is open to hearing your own inner guidance. Please bring a sack lunch and tea will be provided.

My office/studio!

P1010420
316 East Fourth Plain, Vancouver WA

 

More pictures of my new office/studio! I haven’t decided exactly what to call it. Office sounds so official and business-like, and studio sounds like I consider myself an artist. After all, artists have studios. And calling myself an artist makes me nervous. Because if I call myself an artist, doesn’t that mean I think I’m good at it?

Yes, even deciding on a word can send me down the rabbit hole!

One of the definitions of “artist” is a person who practices any of the various creative arts. I guess that makes me an artist!

Which means I have a studio!

OMG! I have an office/studio!

Well, things have changed since my last post. I now have an office/studio! And I wasn’t even looking for one!

The past few years I have been withdrawing from the world. I have stepped back from groups and activities and pretty much hibernated at home. I could tell a big change was coming, as the old fell away, and I waited for the new to show itself. Turning 50 and my children leaving home finally pushed me into asking the big question “what do I do with my life now?”

I started Life Book 2015 in January, connecting back with my art. To be able to create and play has been so much fun! And hard work! I think the Life Book work has finally prepared me for new opportunities…and one of those opportunities is a new office!

The fabulous Kathryn King was looking to expand her office, and the suite of offices next to her were available. Kathryn asked Pam Dusenberry (a fellow Life Booker!) and me if we had ever thought about having studio space. We both said yes, and then started talking about how fun it would be to have workshops, and open art times and sharing our love of art with other people.

Next thing I know, I have an office/studio! In Vancouver! I know, right? Me, working in Vancouver (I live in Portland). Pam and I share an office, Kathryn has an office where she sees her clients, and then there is a bigger room where we will have classes and workshops. I don’t know what I will be doing specifically, though stay tuned, because I will be posting it here once I know.

Here are my thoughts right now…art workshops, studio time, reading tarot, teaching tarot classes, graphic design, Photoshop Tutorials, etc.

The possibilities are endless!
