My New Muse

I thrifted this beautiful mermaid figure on the way home from work today.  She is my new creative muse ~ and a role model for riding the waves of busyness and overwhelm with confidence and grace.
Finding her today was the end of my dream the night before, in which I dreamed I was a mermaid.  I interpret this dream to mean that I have not been spending enough time exploring my creativity recently ~ and I plan to dive back into that sea this long holiday weekend!  To read about the meaning of mermaids in dreams, click here:

Cozy Dogs

The dogs are staying warm and cozy on the couch on this chilly night. We are all staying at home tonight, out of the chilly wind on this Thanksgiving Eve.

Lazy Sunday

I spent the entire day actively procrastinating ~ busily doing many things, but none of the things I was supposed to be doing (including coloring my hair ~ so gray Monday it is) ~ I watched three movies on Netflix on my laptop while reorganizing my art supplies (no small task) and catching up on Project Life ~ and these pages were pretty uninspired, I must admit.  I didn't have one photo on either weeks' spread!

No more down time until next weekend, if then.  So I needed this lazy stay-at-home day.  Tonight, take-out pizza, Caesar salad and red wine.  Oh, and chocolate.

A Weekend of Art at MOCA ~ with SOMMA and Golden Acrylics

Contemporary Art Exhibit // Michael Goldberg

I had a great weekend at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) ~ a lecture and three classes taught by artist K.D. Tobin ~ Please check out his work here:

The weather was gorgeous all weekend and it was nice to walk around downtown in the sunshine.

The view from our 5th floor classroom.

Examples of the fun I had playing with interference and iridescent acrylic paint on black paper today. I am looking forward to working with these paints in the future in my art journals, ATC's and hopefully, fine art.

Thank you to the Society of Mixed Media Artists (SOMMA) for facilitating these wonderful classes. I am so excited to be the newest member of SOMMA!

Sunday Morning Art

Chloe working in her art journal before Sunday School.

I found these cute half-sized Avery 3-ring binders at WalMart for $3.97 ~ they fit My Right Brain Planners perfectly!

Working in My Right Brain Planner this morning ~ will rely on my inner voice to guide me this week.
