An Ambitious Heart Filled Project


For the past 3 months my gal Mati McDonough and I have been leading an ambitious heart filled project: a year long painting practice e-course that we are calling 52 Paintings. This is the first e-course I have led so I didn't know what to expect, and I've actually been caught off guard at how deeply this course would sink into each part of my studio practice...as I work and film the painting demos for the class there is such a community feeling, which is just what Mati and I intended for the course from the start. It can sometimes feel lonely working in the studio, and having this group to vibe with, throw ideas around, and talk about each other's work has already become such a wonderful community.

In the group Mati & I are sharing everything that we have gleaned from a collective 40+ years of painting! This is not a quick fix program but a way of being an artist that takes into consideration the seasons, the ebbs & flows of inspiration and being part of a supportive and thoughtful community of artists. There has been so much soul stirring heart opening beauty shared in our online classroom and in our private Facebook group where we gather for weekly videos demos from Mati and I, along with lots of inspiration, sharing of work and peeks into each other's studios through out each week. Here is some of the beautiful work that has come out of this course already...

On June 16th we are excited to begin our second module of the course and we'd love to have you along! In this second three month module we'll be covering:

~Incorporating Words with Meaning into your work.
~Layering with Stencils and Silkscreens.
~Working with Geometrics.

Along with lots of other juicy tidbits that we've gathered.

I am a closet artist who is finally after many years leaving the closet. This coming year will be about letting my wings unfural and soaring, discovering, learning and creating. This is exactly what I need to assist me in this process. I have subscribed to your newsletter and shared to my FB page.

I would love to enter the Life Book contest because I want to find my voice. The past 8 years I have focused on being a mom and giving it all to my children. It has been a very powerful and rewarding experience, but in the process, the artist inside me stopped creating. I'm slowly finding myself again through photography, but that person that once created with her hands feels like she's lost somewhere. Through Life Books, I hope to revive the true "me" again and give that artist a new platform to express herself. To find out more about me, you can find me on IG at cggphoto. Thanks for the consideration!!
