As you may know by now, I have a new book, Creating Personal Mandalas, Story Circle Techniques in Mixed Media and Watercolor, coming out this Spring (I'm pretty excited!!!). I have been working on it for a year and a half and in a little over a month it will be shipping out to the world! I have poured hours and days and love and tears in to this book and I am so excited to share it with anyone who is interested in receiving the gifts it has to offer.
It explores the circle as a vessel for creative expression, self connection, visual story telling and so much more. It is an art instructional but also a guide back to center for those willing to embark on the creative journey. It is permission and direction with step by step instructional for those wanting to creatively express but feeling like they might not know where to begin. For those that do it is a collection of prompts and inquiries to send you on your own creative way.
Why am I sharing all of this? Because I just received permission to share an entire chapter, including two step by step instructional exercises with you. I believe art is for anybody willing to engage and explore and this offering allows me to make the book, at least in part, available to anybody interested as well.
The chapter I will be sharing is titled "The Circle as True North" and shares some of my own personal experiences surrounding values as well as one mixed media and one watercolor instructional. The instructional guide you in exploring that which is important to you while simultaneously exploring creative expression and offers technical direction for those that crave it.
Please accept this gift by signing up and let me know how the exercises go for you. I would be so honored...
