Soulful Art

Liquid Acrylic and Resin Art

I can count on one hand how many times I'd been in Michaels crafts until I saw a video on Facebook about creating geodes out of resin, paint and crystals. And, BAM! I was hooked. Now I've been to Michael's so many times that when I asked our son for a gift card for Mother's Day, he stuck out his hand, introduced himself, and asked me "who are you and what have you done with my mother'. 

I was in a menopausal funk and found my way out through liquid art. The meditative, creative, nothing-is-a-failure world of liquid art. I jumped in with both feet and haven't looked back. I love the process and consider each experience just that - an experience. Whether it's resin or acrylic art I'm having fun engaging my soul and senses in a way I haven't done in years. Now I know why people have hobbies. And I now understand the statement "I work to support my hobby'. But it's worth it. My soul is full and I'm happier and content again. Art as therapy - it's true folks.

So, join me for a painting class and get inspired. You never know what's next on your journey!
