All this time I've been going about it the wrong way: changing my outward circumstances instead of finding peace and safety within myself.
Tonight's Gallery Stroll at 15th Street Gallery was cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic Nevertheless, the show is up and it's beautiful!

“Calibrating your creative compass” simply means periodically taking the time to check in with yourself to make sure you are on the right track. The following 6 questions are designed to help you identify your motivations and how they influence your creative process.
I am trilled for the opportunity to share my "fearless" abstract painting philosophies & techniques with this amazing new group at the University of Utah. The excitement in the air was palpable!

I’ve been asked wether teaching my painting techniques & philosophies has created my own competition. Honest answer? Maybe. However, I continue to teach because not doing my part to create positive change in my tiny corner of the universe would be a super waste of resources.
Participants walk away from my workshops changed, inspired, happier & less afraid. What else are we here for but to share our bounty with others & raise the vibration of our incredible planet?! Thank you @uofulifelonglearning for giving us the opportunity to paint fearless.

Guess who came by the studio to experience Fearless Abstract Painting? If this dynamic duo looks familiar, it's probably because you've seen them on TV on Good Things Utah.
