I’m hunkering down for Christmas now and playing with making a few little paintings. I snapped a few shots during the process of making these paintings which I'm calling 'The Little Red & Green Christmas Paintings'. These are each the size of a big postcard, each of them painted on a hand torn piece of 300 pound water colour paper (giving them a deckled edge) with heavy body acrylic paints using a palette knife. I stared the series by choosing 3 parameters 1) colours - I decided green & red with a few other colours to punch it up 2) composition - I decided these would be a landscape composition 3) content - these pieces are about freedom, space, playfulness and experimentation. Enjoy the in process pictures! www.debchaney.com

Setting New Year’s Goals, Intentions, & ResolutionsONE DAY WORKSHOP
Life is constantly offering us millions of options, every minute. We have to make choices on where we are headed, and, unless we get clear for ourselves, we’ll be following the pack, or taking orders from someone else. In this one day workshop, co-facilitated with Deb Chaney, you are presented with the structure and support to get clear on what you want for YOU in various area of your life; such as finances, health & relationships. And, for those who dare, dive even deeper into moving forward with your soul’s work and purpose – why you are really here. Please bring a journal, regular and coloured pens, magazines with images to cut out, a glue stick, and plenty of water and snacks for yourself.

I am working on a wonderful creative project (currently the project is a secret to support cultivating my creative energy and momentum to see it through and deliver it to you next year!). In support of this project, I put a poll on Deb Chaney Facebook asking my friends how they are kind to themselves. The answer is in this poster above! Enjoy, Deb. #BeKindToYourself

I received a beautiful email on FaceBook from a student who took one of my mixed media abstract painting workshop s several years ago. She told me that when she goes for a walk she does The SMIGLs Ritual with herself out loud, the one we did in class during that workshop, and how after all this time, it has stayed with her! We did this ritual again at the end of the workshop last weekend at the Beaumont Studios and I thought I’d share it with you in the case you haven’t heard of it yet. xo Deb

She is clear in how an artist should set her priorities in creating a full, creative and inspired life." Patrick M, Yoga Instructor, Vancouver BC. "I learned to look deeper into my creative process to find inspiration and also to honour the boundaries an artists needs for her own self care." Jenny C. Teacher/Singer/Artist, Vancouver BC "[ If you have the opportunity to hear Deb speak ] Bring your notebook and take notes!

If the world had a song/anthem, what would it sound like? Isn't it time we had a world anthem to unite us all? A beyond inspirational 11 year old, Capri, came to visit our Toastmasters Group (Club #59) this evening, asking us this question. She spoke to the group and shared about the world voyage she is embarking on with her Mom, Dad, and little brother, leaving Vancouver this November. She is going to sing 80 national anthems in 80 countries, each in their mother tongue language, with the intention to raise money for orphaned kids around the world. Her first stop? Ottawa. Number of people in attendance? 20, 0000 to which she will speak AND sing to. #INSPIRED. Learn more at AroundTheWorldIn80Anthems.com
