Before I started painting these abstracts the most beautiful images in my head were my nightly dreams. I am a vivid dreamer; dancing the tango with Picasso, that I am not only a ballerina but that I can hold my jumps for amazing lengths of time, that I can fly above the city and land safely, that I am walking down a long tunnel with brilliantly colored plaster walls, aged and warmly beautiful.
Now it is like I have walked into these dreams. Only these are even more magical. I never know what's coming. I just show up and push the paint. This way and that, all the colors that sing to me. And in the end my heart is so full that I feel complete in a way that is utterly new and wonderful. I am closer to heaven.
One of my teachers in trusting my heart has been my friend Katie Kendrick. I have taken classes with her several times and each time I gain a little more trust in my instinct and benefit from her fearless model of treating the search as a playful adventure.
Katie is teaching in Malibu this weekend; here to be exact.
If you want to curl your toes in the sand, paint with Katie, revitalize yourself as an artist, please consider joining her for one or two days (yes, you can choose). She is a very good teacher; a most wonderful example of how to live and get the most out of our time here.
