Jan 2010

Well, 2010 is finally here. I wish you all a peaceful and joy-filled year.

My intentions are mostly artistic, and once again I intend to drink a lot of tea. :D

Last year I started the year off with Denise Linn's Soul Coaching program, and I'm doing it again this year, officially starting tomorrow but I did the prep work today.
I got so much out of Soul Coaching last year, and am really looking forward to the positive changes and insights it brings this year.

There are two journals kept during the 28 days of the program- a process journal and a joy journal. The joy journal I have decided to keep here.

The Vasari Paint Angel visited and brought some very nice paint...I had to try it out, so set up a little still life and did a quickie painting, maybe 2 1/2 hours. The candle was a little tough, since I am used to working with (mostly) single pigment paints and the paint set I got were all blends of greys.

  5. I LOVE how you rendered the candle! All the very best to you and Daya for looks like you are already off to a great start. I LOVED the Soul Coaching journey too and I look forward to you sharing your joy journal on your blog. :)
