easy and natural 

The explorations must continue, the art must go on, the heart must soften and open, easy and natural, so that the creativity can come pouring out.

Food for the heart and the soul

The Mahaloness painting is coming along, and what would art process be without some key ingredients: the sky being one, colorful flowers, books, coffee from my favorite coffee shopThe Roasterie, and good ole comfort food, of course*. The sky is key becuase working so close to the canvas can cause eyes to strain, I often take a moment to step outside and look up, and as far up as is possible. As for food I like eggs, they are quick and easy and offer yet another kind of canvas to nourish the creative zeal.
*there are some additional key ingredients and medicines that offer good headspace, heartspace that put me into a healthy creative mindset, this list will be expanded upon.
