I cannot begin to tell you how powerful this process is, how it really shows you where you are blocking, and believe me it shows things you really never saw coming.

It’s like they do the trnaslation for you.
Goodness feels like a very long time I haven't written something here but then that's not surprising as this is the first year, after 20 years in France, that I decided to join the french in their annual shutdown. The world gets infuriated that they cannot do business with the french during the month of… Continue reading Why the French August shutdown is good for me
I haven't painted for a long time. Yesterday I really felt the need to release under the energies of the new moon as so much as been happening lately, emotionally, and I needed to get into a place to let go of some emotions. Remember this time of painting is concerned with the end results,… Continue reading How oils help you with creativity
So yesterday I wrote a blog on climbing out of darkness, and I really don't know what happened but I suddenly got loads of likes and followers (thankyou!).

Happy Easter everyone. Today for me it is a celebration of transformation, rebirth, that difficult times means simply change. Like a baby being born, the birthing canal squeezes the baby so hard it deforms the skull, when the caterpillar emerges from its crysalis, its wings are crumpled and it feels pain as the circulation rushes… Continue reading A thought to mull over whilst eating that chocolate egg!
Someone asked me what I really do through my work. The Art The emotions The painting I went within and found that I connect people to the essence of themselves. We were born creators. Just give a 2-year-old child a felt tip pen or a paintbrush and he will paint without a question or a… Continue reading And the creator awakens…
How do you paint? I mean do you dive in? Do you plan? Do you think? What is your style? Me? Well you know when I paint, I normally dive straight in, having no idea where I am heading, I only know when it's finished as there is a harmony and balance with the colour… Continue reading So this happened when I painted

"What was your proudest moment? What are you proud to have accomplished?" Aside from my beautiful daughters of course, the one thing that springs to mind is my move to France.

Yesterday I met up with an incredible woman, a fellow artist who also runs art workshops like me, with the slant of using art as a tool to help others.

Today’s challenge is to for me to write about what people thank me for, or rather what I love helping others with.

Day 2 of my challenge with Live Your Legend, and today they set me the goal of writing about anger and what makes me angry.
