faces

Remember..I’m painting or drawing 100 faces…
I am slowly slowly getting there;)

Here are a few pieces I’ve recently done. I’ve used charcoal and gesso on paper which is a lot of fun for me, a no-fuss way of creating, where things flow easily…









For art entwined workshop, Misty Mawn made us studying several artists by observing, connecting, analysing and then re-creating our own interpretation of their art. This is such an interesting process, so rich but also challenging and profound.

This is about finding deep within myself what is my emotional response in relation to a piece and then trying to translate it with my own interpretation. The following piece was inspired by Oswaldo Guyasamin and by my friends Anne & Jeanne Marie ;)



By the way, a year ago I painted my first face in my first art journal!! Things are evolving;)

have a great week end dear ones💚

I recently saw a wonderful documentary about brain capacity and how our brain keeps developing special connections when we practice a sport, a music instrument or a task over and over.

What our brain does is that more we practice, more our brain builds up connection so that we keep getting better and better at this thing! 

I know this as I use mindfulness and neuroscience theoretical modalities all the time in my professional practice however watching this on tv stroke me. The emphasis was on the repetition and commitment to a certain practice. 

Does it give you hope? it certainly does for me…

A recent exchange with my friends Anne and Jeanne Marie on Instagram was a great reminder of that.

Jeanne Marie commented about a book she had read, the Talent Code, which talks about practice and talent and how talent is grown by practicing…

Great syncronicity… I think I needed this reminder for my art practice!

Here is another reminder of some sort!

Ole to you! Keep showing up!

Have a great Easter everyone xx

something happened

This is what I’ve been working on recently and I must say, I have experienced the most exciting feeling with this technique.
Mixing colors, creating values, adding a touch here or there fascinate me.
It’s like painting through my intuition, without the use of rational or analytic thinking.
Something different happened..some sort of letting go…
