Moving From the Center and Into Action: Part 3

Moving From the Center and Into Action: Part 3

Moving from the Center and into Action: Part 2

Sometimes, when finding my center, I imagine myself in the radiant center of a flower, with the petals representing all of the different aspects of myself that I move in and out of all day long. Other times, it’s more like a hurricane.

Hello Dear Friends! I am so excited to share with you a new, organic shift in my art business. In effect, I’m not entirely certain where this will take me, but it is time to set sail in a new direction, allowing myself and my business to unfold and evolve along the way. To that end, I am embarking on a journey in blog-land. It is my intention to write about my artful life and share stories with you a couple of times each week.
