I’m so excited! The paintings for my July show are coming along and I have a title for the show — FLOURISH!

Check it out…

I love this word because I consider it the next level of becoming alive. To flourish is to move into a higher level of the human experience. It includes conditions such as creativity, self-expression, curiosity, and awe! It’s almost a childlike state of wonder and amazement at the mysteries of life. Without these nourishing emotions, our state of mind and, naturally, our work can be less than it could be.

I want to flourish while making my art and it’s how I want the work to feel. It’s not there yet but holding this word ignites my curiosity and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Does this word resonate with you? Let me know in the comments.

Big news! We are very close to announcing our new 2024 Art2Life Destination Workshops! We are so excited about where we’re heading to make art this year and we hope you can join us! These workshops sell out quickly so if you’re not on our workshop notifications list yet, be sure to sign up so you don’t miss out!

Hope you make some art today!
