A year and a half ago I spent a month doing an artist residency through @springboardarts in Fergus Falls. Hinge Arts is currently accepting applications for the next round of residencies, due 9/1. Spending time on the grounds of a former state mental hospital- and in a rural town where the arts are pivotal in creating community- was such a profoundly cool experience, and very influential on my thinking/writing about medical care. Even if this round of applications is too short notice for you to apply, I highly recommend checking it out for the future!

Today is your LAST CHANCE to register for 12 Weeks of Conscious Creativity at the early bird rate of $450. Starting on September 2nd, this online course from Contribute Your Verse will bring together aspiring writers to explore Julia Cameron's classic book on creativity, The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity. 🖊 Together, we will spend twelve weeks cultivating daily writing habits, learning how to honor & prioritize our creative selves, and joining together with like-minded writers to support each other’s creative journeys. I truly believe that this will be a transformative experience & I can't wait to share it with you. 🖊 If you are an aspiring writer who could benefit from this experience (or have a friend who might be interested!), you can learn all about the course on the Contribute Your Verse website (link in bio) 🖊 #writing #writer #writers #writingcoach #artistsway #juliacameron #writingcourse #onlinecourse #creativity #artist #poet #novelist #fiction #poetry #memoir #creativewriter #creativewriting #inspiration #dailyhabits #creativehabits #creativitycoach #contributeyourverse
💜With acceptance of what is - comes love. 💜 Elkhart Tolle
I was told not to paint animals, goddesses, or use gold if I wanted to be a successful artist. I was told I should stick to one recognizable style. A gallery threatened to stop representing my work when I started painting the Divine Feminine. I faced loosing a gallery that sold the most of my art and supported my family. But my heart said differently, no matter the cost. 👑 Creative Courage, following your heart, paving your own path, is the journey of Creators. I’ll tell you, painting exactly what asks to come through me has been the catalyst for the most beautiful connections and friendships. I receive messages all the time that bring me to joy-filled tears, from people who buy and see my Divine Feminine and animal paintings. I wouldn’t trade that for someone else’s approval, ever. 🎨 When we are called to create something, someone in the world is asking for that creation, knowingly or unknowingly, THAT creation that wants to come through you is medicine for another. 🔥 As artists (aka Translators of the Divine) it is our job to cultivate courage... courage to really share the messages and stories closest to our hearts. Courage to share our creations, no matter how terrifying and vulnerable. Courage to BE our different, unique, weird, one of a kind selves. THAT is magic. Your “different” your “weird” IS YOUR MAGIC! 🦋 I INVITE YOU to a FREE 7 day Cultivating Creative Courage Challenge for Artists & Creators!!! I invite you to share your Creations with deeper Courage, trust and vulnerability, reaching a wider audience and calling in the collectors your work is for 🌹 🦄 What you will learn in these 7 days: ~INSTAGRAM CRASH COURSE for Creators! I will share how I sold $11,000 of my art my first month selling my HeARTwork on Instagram ~I will be sharing my own story of how I quit my job to be a full time artist, the steps, the strategies, the breakdown of how I TRIPLED my income the first year I went all in creating full time ~Powerful daily Soul Work Assignments & sooo much more!!! To join this FREE 7 days of Cultivating Creative Courage, click link in bio and sign up to join our private Cosmic Creators Community ❤️ See you on the inside ❤️

Starting a new round of The Artist’s Way. A beautiful thing to realize the progress and forward motion happening - transforming from “shadow artist” to “artist in the light”. Even if there are starts and stops and resets, the motion is always forward. #LetYourLightSoShine #GodLight #CreativeLife #ArtistsWay #writersofIG #poetsofIG #artistsofIG
So excited to lead a group of inspiring, ambitious ladies in the “Artist’s Way” starting this September. I have one more slot open for this group, if anyone is interested ;) #artistsway #creativity #helpingothers
My sweet friend @hatchedhalifaxheidi kindly mailed this wee treasure to me when I spotted it on her page of adorable artworks. I’m definitely a person who rocks boats, sometimes to the chagrin of others (rather like my dear old radical Dad), but only after a long period of self-doubting hesitation, which I wish I could just skip over!! I love to look at this little boat and remind myself that though I sometimes choose the path less followed, my little boat is quietly heading where I want to go. I might be weaving and bobbing a lot, but eventually I’ll get there ❤️ Thanks, Heidi! #roadlesstraveled #artistsway #artlife #writerslife #rowboat #boatlife #eastcoast #Halifax #crafters #travel #outdoorwomen #lifestyle #destination #miniaturepainting
#ArtMondays got pushed forward this week to art Sundays. Ever since reading #theartistsway by @juliacameronlive I've dedicated one day a week to what she calls #artistdates and it feeds my creative soul. Her concept is that our creative energy is like any relationship that needs attention and these "artist dates" keep the relationship strong between myself and my inner artist. #feedyoursoul #juliacameron #artistsway #arttherapy #glitterforthesoul #doodleeveryday #artistdates #muse #createordie #allthatglitters @heathercarusoart #psychadelicart #glitterart #hairbyheatherboom #bighair #wildhair #livefree #freedom #livethelifeyoulove #glitterbrows #dragqueenrealness

Back in the mud. ☺️ Would any of you be interested in a little pop up shop with pieces like this? 🌿 #kindlecuriosity #whpcircles
Went out for the first time after work yesterday and painted from nature.🌿 . . I gosh darned loved the patooty out of it!!!⚡️ . . Presented challenges, especially since I chose to paint flowing water as my first subject. And that sure as heck ain't gonna sit still so I can get every little detail. It ended up being more much more intuitive v. realistic. 🌊 . . This ended up being an unexpected gift for a lovely human.🙏 . . I feel the connection again. I know that I've been lacking outside community for awhile, now that I'm integrating back into growing a new one. . . Dats just the introspective creative flow though. It's sometimes easy to forget to remain connected to my fellow beans. . . . . #waterpainting #oilpainting #oils #pleinair #pleinairpainting #pleinairpainter #paintinginnature #tinypainting #smallpainting #ocean #surf #surfart #surftown #oceanart #textural #texture #connciousliving #connection #flowstate #intheflow #community #consciouscommunity #artistsway #sunlight #santacruz #bayareaartist #sfartist #entrepreneurial

Be your own muse. __ Lately, I’ve found myself reluctant to scroll very far on the ‘gram. I admit, after I transitioned this account from solely quotes to one that represents my own holistic healing journey, I spent a little too much time seeing what everyone else was up to. I unfollowed all of the accounts that I felt didn’t represent where I was headed and curated my little feed to be a source of inspiration. A perfect vertically oriented vessel of aspiration and vision. __ Thing is, that could only take me so far. Those visions are created by someone else, with their own set of values, goals, beliefs, and circumstances. They aren’t mine, and their life isn’t mine. __ That’s what makes us all so unique. The fact that there will never be someone with the same DNA, upbringing, culture, perspectives, conditions, etc. as you. There’s never been anyone like you before, and they’ll never be anyone like you after. __ So when I need some inspiration these days, or just a reminder, I often turn to my own words. I’ve reread my blog posts for the first time since hitting publish and wincing a bit that I’ve shared too much. I’ve often revisited my Instagram posts to remind me where I was at it in that point of time, and where I’m at today. And I’ve learned to think clearly for myself, not based on what’s popular or trendy. __ As a result, I’ve decided that the best muse will always be the one inside you. Let your art - and your life - speak for itself, literally. __ #creativeexpression #creativity #artistsway #expressyourself #speakyourmind #speakyourtruth #selfgrowth #selfawareness #selfadvocacy #selfhealing #holistichealing #holisticwellness #holisticlifestyle #lifebydesign
Are any of you into the habit of morning pages (from the book The Artist's Way). Basically you write three pages every morning. Write whatever. Helps with a creative flow throughout the day to clear the blockages and create! Worth a try. #create #creativity #art #artistsway #morningpages #routine #journaling #bulletjournal #createexplore #flow #productivity

Skimming through my new read this am. I am thinking of facilitating this course in the fall...12 weeks of creative exploration. Anyone interested in joining me? #artistsway #create #write #learn #artistscircle #expandmycreativity #iamawriter #iamanartist
My idols from my teen angst days were people like Kerouac and Bukowski. I still love their work but I’m no longer under the delusion that I’m a drunk old man sitting in a 1960s dive bar feeling lonely and into my existential pain. And not to reduce them to that...it just helps me to see the humor in it. Anyway. I get you old archetype, but it’s time to make room for new stories and role models...new artists to inspire me. Enter Patti Smith. I’m digging her and her hunger for her art. Her rawness and realness. Her edge and poetic tenderness.
August Day 17 #Reallife #AugustBreak2018 . This year marks 30 years since my workplace was opened, so they decided to organise a series of fun challenges each month during the year. Last months event was a company sports day with bouncing castles, sumo wrestler suits and a few sporty challenges thrown in. After weeks of amazing sunshine and really high temperatures, the day of the event it lashed rain all day! We still had great fun but it was very much #reallife , you can never depend on the weather here! . #irishsummer #irishweather #rainysportsday #mindfulphotos #mindfulphotosmindfulmoments #mindfulness #dailyphoto #photooftheday #huaweiphotography #artistsway #photographersofinstagram
Morning journal: There is a magic that is “working” in my favor the more and more I believe in it; it gets stronger and stronger. This Universal Force feels my excitement and wants to create even more good for me to experience. I am learning to take pleasure in life and to “stop and smell the roses” along the way. It’s really that simple. Approach it all with ease and grace, remove the guilt, fear, worry, and obsessive thinking, and feel the lightness that takes over. A relief, a vacation from the crazy swirling of thoughts and ideas and lists of things to constantly be doing. Doing, going, reacting, struggling, trying to stay afloat. It’s exhausting and really gets you nowhere you actually want to be, not on a soul level anyway. And your heart knows this. It’s just waiting for your mind to get out of the way so you can hear it again. The struggle is not real, it is a choice, a choice one must make in every moment of every day. Do you listen to the head or the heart? The calm waters are here to soothe your soul, because peace is the true essence of your being. The rest of it, anything that isn’t peace, was added and inherited. But it’s time to let it all go. Let it all burn away, whatever it is that has a hold on you, and let it be transmuted into love. Any forgiveness, regret, worry, it all goes in the flames. That contentment, that feeling of “all is well in the world” is your real reality, or at least it can be if you so choose. It is not naive or foolish the think this way. One must function from the overflow, emphasis on the flow, so they can bring more beauty and hope into the world. If we are all drowning below the waters then who will lift us back up and help us to see the light, breathe the fresh air, and feel the warmth of the sun again? Who will clear away the clouds to reveal the blue skies above? It may not be the easiest path, but it is certainly the most rewarding, and pleasurable. Hope floats and love heals. Remember, in the darkest night, the stars shine the brightest. So Rise and Shine.
