Welcome to this new series of courses based on my visual journey through tough moments in time. A project that needed isolation and some reflective time to kick start it to birth!
Come with me to gather our thoughts and express them creatively as an offering, releasing them to a safe place for your hopeful soul, and a record of this moment in time.
You can sign up to each course and find a new painting project each time. You will be encouraged to paint, draw, collage, mould, sculpt etc. something in response to this water drop in the size of 12x12cm square. You might like to find a blank journal to collate them into as you go, and watch the outcomes emerge to each week. Feel free to just take 5 mins or 2 hours or more hours, whatever time you have to give.
This course (Blessings no1.) will provide you with the resources to paint a water drop with grey led pencil and with oil paints. There are full length videos showing you step by step how its done! Plus a downloadable booklet that encourages you to write your own reflections as you travel this journey!
Keep in touch, I would love to see what delights you create!
