I AM PURE SPIRIT


I AM PURE SPIRIT

"Be aware that you are pure consciousness.
You are not lonely or lost or abandoned.
You are one with all life
You are pure spirit"
- Louise Hay-


Artfest here we come!!!!!

I just wanted to let you know that I will not be around for awhile. I should be back by April 13 and be blogging about my trip to Artfest 2011
I will be taking classes with Lynne Perrella, Roxanne Padgett, Misty Mawn.  I am sooooo excited.  I need to get away!!!  I believe this will be such a different experience then the first. I will not be the newbie anymore. I won't be so nervous. I did not know what to expect.  People don't realize that I am very shy in the inside.  And when I say that people laugh!! But it is true! I'm not kidding!  Inside I feel all scared and shy.  So I make up for it with my humor. I know how to make people laugh.  I think I found out early on with my parents the way to get them to notice me was by making them laugh.  Well that is another story best saved for another time......

Life is Good!!!

And don't forget to check out the Art on Paint Party Friday!

You always manage to create such a wonderful sparkle in your girls eyes...a reflection of you own i am certain..shy or not! A beautiful painting, reminds me of the victorian era....very atmospheric!

Heather - LOVE this piece ... perfect words! Enjoy every bit of ARTFEST 2011!

Carola Bartz said...

Love the "pure spirit" painting! Enjoy Artfest - I am envious and know at the same time that I probably would never go because I'd feel small and not in the right place.

Roban Studio said...

ArtFest!!! How fun. I've always wanted to go. Please give us all the details when you get back. I know what you mean about being shy...I'm actually the same way. It takes me awhile to open up. Have lots of fun! :-)

Carrie Wachter~Martinez said...

Heather, this is an amazing piece! The vibrant colors with the white outline and all over the reflection of Spirit...her long neck signifying her upliftment. Oh, these colors! The way you added little touches of cool tones amidst the reds...just perfect! Plus I love the wisdom of Louise Hay. I too am shy, though no one would guess, and yes humor absolutely helps when the nerves start :)..Have a great time at Artfest

Love your PPF...a journal page?
Louise Hay is an amazing person, I still get something out of her books and my copies are 20 yrs old. Best of times at the ArtFest!

This is stunning. I have no idea why especially because i've never even been, but this totally makes me think of New Orleans! I love the colours and the writing.
