100 Days Of Heart Whisper Paintings

100-days=of-painting

What do you do each day that keeps your heart in touch with your creative spirit?

I have continued my daily 10-15 minutes of painting each day since I completed my 10 x 10 series back in January. I love it. Usually I do it when I first wake- It is like a morning meditation and sets the tone of the day well

Four Years ago Angela Artemis gave me a prescription and I started painting on paper, something I hadn’t done for years.  I painted for 21 days and shared each one here on the blog. Painting then became part of my healing journey and the birth of the Heart Whisper Weekly Ezine.  Then I set myself a goal to paint 45 hearts.

 This was prescription 1

Painting then became part of my healing journey and the birth of the Heart Whisper Weekly Ezine.  Then I set myself a goal to paint 45 hearts.

 My 100 Heart Project was inspired by Melissa Dinwiddie.  After I finished my 10 x 10 project I painted for 2 more days and then I declared to the Big Bold Creative Life Community that I was going to paint 100 hearts. I have been sharing them daily in our private group and last week I started to share them on my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter  pages. From tomorrow a heart whisper painting will appear daily here  on the blog.

100 is a lot of hearts, there have been days where I wonder what new will appear on the paper or do I have any more ideas and then as I let the brush chose a color and guide my hand onto the paper new impressions emerge.

What this project has done for me is get me back in touch with my passion. It’s so easy to forget to make the time to feed our creative spirit.

How did you feed your creative spirit today?

The End Is The Beginning

10-x10-day-10 Reigniting My Creative Spirit: Day 10 of 10 x 10

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from. ~T. S. Eliot

I started my 10 minutes a day x 10 paintings  both as an assignment for Your Big Bold Creativity Life and a way to reignite my creative spirit.

 I intended to create some new backgrounds I could use on my website and blog I am currently rebuilding.

I realized that I had only done this on day 3. So when I started painting on Friday ~ day 10, I started without even think about painting a background. I chose acrylics and picked up a fan brush and allowed the  brush to go make the patterns on the paper. Starting with the blue.

The process of life is an ever changing scene from day to day from moment to moment. Something doesn’t end  but that stage reaches a completion and a new one begins. ~ Suzie Cheel. Opening verse from my book on change Emergings

 I then added in purple

Followed by white

Then I added more purple and white. This was a very meditative painting time. Now I have four backgrounds that may appear throughout the site.

The-end-is How often do you find that you are in this state, where what you think is the ending, is just a doorway to a new journey?

There are opportunities often when we least expect it.These 10 days have opened many doors for me.

Painting today and reflecting on my purpose in starting  this 10 x 10 project, has taken me a full circle. I am finding it is a reflective time

So what’s next?  I am continuing painting each morning and currently on day 3 of my next painting and I will be sharing on Instagram, Facebook , Pinterest and Twitter and will set up a page here for all my art posts.

There are ripples of change afoot

How do you embrace change?

Freeing My Creative Spirit

Day-9-10x10

Reigniting My Creative Spirit Day 9

Day 9: I broke out today, I heard my heart whisper: bigger paper Suzie time to be bold. I used acrylic paint (I have been using watercolors) a fork and surf wax comb were my brushes. I felt freer, more child like, I heard my inner critic come in as I was painting and say: “careful it could become like mud!” I knew that there was a heart to complete this painting  so I left it to dry before I painted what I see as my opening heart.

I have made a video so you can see the process I used.

I think my creative spirit is freeing itself.

As part of this process on Monday I started using the Inquiry Cards to ask a question Today’s was : What needs to change?

inquiry-cardsI followed this with drawing a card from  the Wisdom of The Realm Cards from Collete Baron-Reid and out came Card for the day: The Phoenix: resurrection, surrender to change! How amazing, the synchronicity  that just is. 🙂

My Resting Heart: Creativity 10 x 10: Day 8

Creativity-Day -8

The title for today’s painting came as I posted the image to the page. When I started painting this morning I used a fan brush and for the first time in this series, acrylic paints rather than the watercolors I have used for the past week. The waves of the sea came to mind as I painted, the foam of the wave rolling in on the sand.

The heart then seemed the natural addition.

Then I drew this card from the Inquiry Card Deck : What is my body trying to tell me?creative=inquiry-cards

I followed this with my new morning card drawing and used  the Wisdom of The Realm Cards from Collete Baron-Reid and out came The Resting Tree: patience and silence The-Resting-tree

The message from the card was interesting for me as today I have planned a working on my website day!

The Resting Tree is a sign for you to stop focusing and planning and be at peace in the moment.  This is the representative of nonaction and relaxation.  Patience is the key to being with this Ally.

The Resting Tree asks  you to slow down, sit back, and watch the roses bloom and the birds feed in the meadow.  This isn’t the time to forge ahead in any way.  You may not be taking enough breaks, so you’re invited to be still and contemplate your good fortune, even if it means blessing the chaos in your life.

This is a sign to allow everything to fall away except the stillness of the moment; it’s like living within the space between breaths.

When the Resting Tree appears, it signals that you’ve done all you can for now and it’s time to unwind and allow your story to unfold of its own accord.  You’ve earned the right to rest and relax.

Amazing ideas will come if you do.  Remember the ancient saying, ‘we do without doing and everything gets done.

On this note I am going to go and be still, do some journaling, meditate and see what story arises for me today. Reigniting my creativity is opening my heart to new ways of being and doing. I am wondering now if this painting will become My Patient Heart? Patience has been a real teacher for me.  Another lesson in self-love!

What is your body trying to tell you?

Sometimes things aren’t clear right away. That’s where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead. ~Mary Pierce
