Thoughts on Critique, Isolations and The Drawing Center. Studio Practice #7 video

I used to class myself a perfectionist like it was a negative trait to have because it drains me knowing the energy I would put in to whatever project I was about to take on. It was when i started this journey that I realise really really quickly that there will always be room for improvement with whatever work one does. One of the main factors with growth is trial and error. I feel like the more you try and experiment, the closer you will gravitate to whatever it is that resonates with what it is you classify as “perfect”. Perfect is not a black and white statement, it is simply a perception through ones eyes due to the knowledge they have at that time. And until this piece is in my definition of perfect.. ill be here. My own little production in the making ☺️❤️🙏🏽 Ps. Thats me laughing at my own awkward “concentration face”. Dont ask me why I pout I DONT KNOW 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️😂
Her-story exhibition artist @fleur_stevenson_ is inspired by the geometries found in Sydney’s urban landscape. Working with mixed media (acrylic and spray paint) on canvas and board, Fleur’s paintings explore the negative spaces between (permanent and temporary) objects and invite the viewer to discover and navigate through these seemingly empty spaces. Come and see Fleur’s fascinating artwork this week @artgalleryondarling along with ten other wonderful artists who have come together to celebrate women in the arts.

Work in progress by 2019 Her-story exhibition artist @karennortheyart Paintings begin by creating a loose abstract foundation using acrylic paint and large brushes. Finely detailed line work is then developed intuitively using acrylic paint pens. What emerges are images that are often very much up to the interpretation of the viewer. Everyone sees something different!
I paint because with art in my life, life makes sense. I paint to help me focus on the beauty in the world. Her-story exhibition opens today! Drop by and meet the artists in person, see their art and find out more about how and why they create the art that they do. #herstory_exhibition #whatsonsydney #brisbaneartist #abstractartist #intuitiveartist #contemporaryart #emergingartist #acrylicart #posca #artistlife #studiopractice

New pots just in by @victoriabuchler, a Portland-based maker. This gorgeous piece not only has drainage, but a saucer built into the overall design. Swipe to see how it works—sheer genius!
I consider it an honor to be able to share my experience resulting from teaching art for over 19 years. I started young, yes, and I learned so much about the struggles and also the simple solutions to living a creative life. As a practicing artist, I embrace the highs and the lows, knowing that the lows precede the GIFT!
I'm grateful for my students at the Leah Lopez Atelier it is an honor to support you on your journey and relationship to the artist within.

This piece is very close to completion. It’s the hardest thing right? That infamous question of knowing when it’s done. For me there is a building up of different elements and various steps. Once I get into the later steps, I know it’s nearing completion. Still never easy! When do you know when it’s done? Next, the oil paint will dry while I work on the other three. Then I’ll paint the sides, wire and sign. Yay! There is momentum and rhythm building! It is so important for me to always work several at once. I have until April 22 when my photographer @rebekah_johnson_photography comes. 🙏🤞🏼My exhibit “Divergence” opens May 2 @frederickholmesandcompany in Seattle.

As I head off to TO this week, I want to send a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to everyone in Ottawa who has supported me in my journey as a photographer. From patrons, to galleries who have shown my work, to people I have collaborated with, to friends who have encouraged me, and finally (but not least) to @spao_613 I am profoundly grateful.
The smile on my face says it all. I feel so blessed to be able to pursue my passion.

The dreaded fouettés..😆
Probably something I have struggled with the most in ballet for quite awhile, and I didn’t know why. I was doing everything I could to help it-core strengthening, leg and feet workouts, and practicing the motion at the barre but it never came together seamlessly for some reason.
Yesterday in my ballet private I think we finally nailed the issue! Turns out my retiré was slightly too high, which I find ironic! Obviously, during most turns in ballet a high retiré is required, but in fouettés, at least for me, it was ruining my lines and also throwing me off.
As soon as I applied this correction my fouettés were so much better and smoother!
Still so much to work on though. Mainly I am going to focus more on spotting.😊

Inhale / Pause / Exhale / Pause. Yesterday I took a yoga workshop @midtownchicago with @josephlauricellayoga on breath work and you might be surprised how much focus it takes to "inhale / pause / exhale / pause" and do it well. I am always grateful to be a student because I know these lessons will find their way into my studio practice. Maybe it is an exhale before I start in on a new section, or a long pause between brush strokes. More mindfulness is always good:)

Flotsam, Hot Hands. Edition of 5. Sold another piece.
Flotsam picked up at the Inauguration. What nerve-wracking times right now. I was devastated at the US news then and I am even more now. Even when you think we must have reached the bottom it seems as if there’re new depths to plumb. I am so crossing my fingers about the midterms.
