(photo credit Harriet Carlson)I have been experiencing some lovely synchronicity these days. For starters, I have joyfully accepted a new teaching position at Huntington University in my home town where I will be teaching ART Therapy. What is so special about this opportunity is that this job found me first. I love it when the Universe gives me what I didn't even know I wanted and then I realize it is totally what I needed. I start in January.
I am so stoked about teaching at the University level. It's only one class but that is plenty for me. No more teaching eight classes in one semester for this girl. I remain committed to my ARtful Journey but look forward to spending some time outside my studio to teach something that I have instinctively applied to my own life. ART SAVES indeed!
On another note, I did a photo shoot yesterday! This was total pro with the infamous local creative genius, Harriet Carlson. We're talking lights, camera- action! I wasn't prepared for how uncomfortable I would feel sitting in front of the black lense of the camera with only me to shoot-to see.
To say that I was uneasy is a complete understatement. It was painful. After two glasses of white wine (it was only 2pm), I was able to sit and take part. My edge was gone but some awkwardness still remained.
It is so humbling to sit before this lens. I hope one day to find my inner diva and strike a pose like a semi-pro at least. But for now, these pictures will document my present.
I can't wait to show you the fully edited shots, but for now I had to share the one above.
I have a HUGE sale starting next week on all original paintings. I will be adding some old favorites to the bunch so please sign up for my newsletter to be in the know. I will be sending out the next newsletter soon!
It's Friday and I sit here in a book store with my favorite grande non fat caramel macchiatto, grateful for the gifts I have been receiving from the Universe. My arms are open to receive and I thank-you for all that you bestow upon me. Happy Friday all! I hope the Universe smiles upon you too. Ask and you SHALL receive! xo
