It sounded intriguing so I signed up. She also has a free download on her website titled Creative Joy Journal + Playbook. She says about it, “Write in, draw in, and dribble crumbs on, paint on, and cry tears over! Download for free at http://jenniferlouden.com/workshops-retreats/ (near the bottom of the page).…

Painting on a sunlit morning. http://artbylindy.com/2016/10/painting-sunlit-morning/ http://artbylindy.com/2016/10/painting-sunlit-morning/#respond Fri, 07 Oct 2016 05:13:15 +0000 http://artbylindy.com/?p=9488 Painting on a sunlit morning. The forest shines beyond my window. Soaking up the light through the window, paint is selected. Cadmium yellow, Phalo blue, a vivid red, Mars black, white. A clear mind. Tapping into intention. I become a conduit of energy, conjuring images, my brush moves across the canvas. Pattern. Shapes. Texture. String dabbled in paint. Pattern scraped and printed, brushed and stamped. More color here… more color there. The art is magic. Harnessing the sacred moment of…

Painting Inspired by Niki de Saint Phalle Art http://artbylindy.com/2016/08/painting-inspired-niki-de-saint-phalle-art/ http://artbylindy.com/2016/08/painting-inspired-niki-de-saint-phalle-art/#respond Wed, 17 Aug 2016 07:13:38 +0000 http://artbylindy.com/?p=9408 A number of years ago I discovered the art of Niki de Saint Phalle, a French-Swiss painter and sculptor. She created some colorful, full figured sculptures which I love! Here’s an example: I had created a few drawings in my sketchbooks over the years inspired by her work. Then recently I did this painting and I’m pretty sure it was inspired by Niki’s art and my other painting titled She Wanted the Rainbow So She Put Up with the Rain.…

Spirit Bear Painting http://artbylindy.com/2016/08/spirit-bear-painting/ http://artbylindy.com/2016/08/spirit-bear-painting/#respond Sat, 13 Aug 2016 03:00:17 +0000 http://artbylindy.com/?p=9416 I love it when the unexpected appears in my paintings. This spirit bear showed up as I was painting and I love that he did! There is much symbolism in this piece and it feels very special. The sacred spirit bear is the keeper of dreams and memory. I like that the symbols float above him as if the dreams and memories are floating through time and space. I really like the night sky with the stars and moon too!…

A good day to be working on my paintings. I love painting in the studio! It’s not that cold out but I am bundled up so I can have the door open and the fresh forest air come inside. This is what’s on my art table. Belle likes keeping me company. 🙂 What a sweetie! I like using my old 2007 Jubelale six pack packaging to store some supplies. My studio gnome “Oleg” watches over…
