It has been a while since an art post-but I haven't stopped creating. I have finished the first cycle of my Color of Woman training and what a ride it has been. When I really sit and think about how far I have come in my creative path and my confidence since April, the growth has been incredible to me. I find myself checking in more with my heart desire-asking myself what do I really want. It is so easy for ego to take over, or worry about what others think or what they might feel, putting others needs above my own constantly-and it is hard sometimes for me to tell the difference between the two. but it is getting a little easier each day.
In a way I feel I didn't go as deeply into the training (thus far) as I would have liked, but another side of me encourages me with the other side of things. The other side being-with my new status as mom, I needed to learn to balance and set priorities for my own wellness, and know that I did the best I could do during that time. I think that I went deeper than I think I did-I think that my struggle over my expectation, and time forced me to look at things differently-something I am still struggling to balance, but at least I recognize it now.
Now I am moving into the teaching cycle of the training, and I am feeling refreshed and ready to move forward. I have been working on putting together some online content for classes, working on on person content, and thinking about what my soul work is.
I am so excited to be a part of the intentional creativity movement that is happening all over the world (and is not just done by Color of Woman). This path is one that I have been working towards for a few years-and to finally have the confidence to voice it feels so magical.
In November I am going to California to graduate from my Color of Woman training. Every time I think of it I get giddy. I will be staying with a few other women from the class and I know we are going to have a blast and learn and discover so much.
The above painting is titled "Soul Waker" she is the final painting for the first cycle of Color of Woman. She has the eye of the visionary woman and is wild at heart. She speaks the language of the heart that is heard as a whisper between the silence. She represents that which we know and that whihc we don't know we know. She is Alchemical. She breathes new breath into each step.
