inspiration realized

On Saturday I posted about a little section of scrap paint had inspired me.  
Here's the link if you hadn't seen the post:

I was on a mission to use that as inspiration to make a piece of abstract art.
Well I did it ~ Tah - Dah!
8" x 24" on gallery wrapped canvas
acrylic paint + charcoal
YES... it's for sale.
I like it.  I really like it!

when inspiration strikes...

I get a thrill when inspiration strikes AND I get it!
In my studio I have my table covered with white craft paper.
Any extra paint from my brushes I swipe onto this paper.
Later I cut up the paper into 9x 12 sheets and I use them as jump starts to create art with abandon.
Here are a couple link where I've talked about this before, in case you missed reading hem.
Today while I was working on another project there was a snippet of the paper on my table that seem to "leap out at me".  I've outlined it in black.
I was fixated by this little section.
I got out my phone a took a picture of that section.
Here it is.
Isn't it an awesome beginning of an abstract piece of art?
I believe my creative spirit delivered me a message.
My intention is to replicate it, to the best of my ability, on a canvas.

What a way to start my day.

When I do this (my) ritual before entering my studio I am blessed with tremendous success, especially from within.
I am no longer concerned with the results, I am simply grateful for the opportunity to create.

When I don't do my ritual I am riddled with self-doubt, frustration, and creative blockage.
I walk around my studio smudging with a Palo Santo stick all the while saying my intentional prayer.
Today I feel the presence of Spirit who is with me always in every detail of my life.
It is the clear light of Spirit that leads the way to complete success in all things.
Spirit is the source of all inspirations.
I am an essential part of creation.
It is the power and creativity of Spirit that expresses though me.
There is a deep yearning that lives in me that is the light of Spirit.
I am one with Spirit.
Today I walk in the pathway of inspiration.
I am serene and confident that my projects are infused with great outcomes, for I am allowing myself to be guided by the living Spirit within me.
It is divine inspiration that moves me to create.
These creations are a blessing to all who encounters them.
I give thanks for the success of this art and the joy of creating it.
I release attachment of all outcomes to the Spirit, knowing the response will be to its highest intention.
With quite expectancy, I let it be.
And so it is.

Do you have something you do before you start your day?
If so, I'd love to hear about it.

Oceanside studio

We just returned from a vacation in the Dominican Republic.  Eleven days of relaxing, enjoying each others company, the warm weather, sunshine, and the ocean.  I love the sound of the ocean waves crashing on the shore.
The resort had me from the very beginning.  As soon as we watched into the main lobby I could smell incense burning, I was captivated.  I LOVE smelling incense. I burn it a lot during the day.

I had a oceanside studio where I created art on the beach every day.
With an extremely limited supplies including 2-graphite pencils + 1-charcoal pencil + 1-flat brush + 1-pen eraser + 1-kneaded eraser I created these ladies in my art journal.





No matter where you travel or how far you roam there's one thing for certain 
"there's no place like home"
