This is after about 4 layers of paint. It's a process! I'm enjoying all of them, though, even the yoga moves! Very effective way to paint, and I'd love for kids to start out painting this way. What amazing paintings they would do. hmm. thought.

And some beautiful, heavenly music to go with it. I love Lisa Gerrard, her music sounds like praying to me.

Time to paint and sew

I delayed holiday gratification until February, and enrolled in Flora Bowley's 'Bloom True" online e-course. Because I love her paintings, and her funky groove-chic style. It all starts on Monday, and I have a notion to blog on the progress here. I've cleaned out the studio, restocked the paint table and am ready to go. I haven't looked forward to something like this in a LLoooonngg time. :D

Here are a few of Flora Bowley's gorgeous paintings. And more here..

Goregous aren't they? Can not wait to go for it on Monday!
