This white throated sparrow has been tapping in my windows and following me around the house. He sits on the ledge and looks into my eyes and sings his little heart out. This song and dance happens several times a day and has been going on since the beginning of the week! Quite an amazing experience! Beautiful messenger.

#birds   #sparrow  

Ce bruant à gorge blanche communique avec moi depuis quelques jours. Il cogne dans mes fenêtres et me suit autour de la maison. Il me regarde droit dans les yeux, puis il s'ouvre le bec et chante avec tout son coeur. Ce jeu se produit plusieurs fois par jour depuis le début de la semaine. Ce n'est pas commun comme expérience!

Of all the paintings I've created so far, none has been more polarizing than this one. People either love it or hate it with a passion (and they often feel compelled to tell me in vivid detail. wink emoticon I used to feel crushed when people didn't like my art, because I felt they were rejecting me as a person. Thankfully, I now know better and I've grown out of the need to get everyone's approval. I'm grateful that my art provides strong emotions and gets people talking. I rarely decide what I'm going to paint, I just follow the flow and allow things to come through and then I embrace both the process and the result without judgement, for the most part. This Mixed media piece is called Celeste and I've added words from one of Joseph Murphy's book (The power of your subconscious mind) in the background. She speaks to me. I see her as a strong, independent and fearless woman or shaman. What do you see?
De toutes mes oeuvres, celle-ci provoque le plus de réactions vives. Les gens l'adorent ou l'haïssent totalement (et ne se gênent pas pour me le dire. wink emoticon Au début, ça m'affectait beaucoup, parce que j'avais l'impression qu'ils me rejetaient moi, personnellement. Par chance, j'ai récemment passé l'étape d'avoir besoin de l'approbation de tout le monde. Maintenant, je me réjouis lorsque mon art provoque une émotion et crée un espace pour une discussion. Je ne décide jamais ce que je vais peindre. Je laisse seulement le pinceau glisser sur la toile et je me contente de suivre le courant. J'accepte le processus et le résultat final sans jugement, autant que possible. Cette oeuvre en technique mixte se nomme Céleste et j'y ai intégré des mots provenant du livre de Joseph Murphy qui se nomme Le pouvoir de votre subconscient. Cette oeuvre me parle. J'y vois une femme shaman forte, indépendante et courageuse. Et toi? Que vois-tu?

It takes courage to speak up and give an alternate point of view. It takes courage to create something and then share it with the world. It takes courage to be who you really are, flaws, qualities and all. It takes courage to love and be loved. The world becomes a better place each and every time you find the courage and take action. Isn't that a wonderful thought?

Il faut du courage pour partager une opinion qui sort des normes. Il faut du courage pour créer quelque chose et ensuite le partager publiquement. Il faut du courage pour être qui on est... avec nos qualités et nos défauts. Il faut du courage pour aimer et être aimé. Le monde s'améliore à chaque fois que l'on trouve le courage et qu'on le met en pratique. N'est-ce pas magnifique?

Is a painting ever finished? My paintings usually let me know when they are complete, but from time to time, I feel they need to evolve and improve. I recently revisited this painting called "Focus" for a solo show and she feels more complete (and serene) now. ;-) Do you every revisit your art and take it in another direction or improve upon it?

‪#‎SpringIntoAction‬ D-25 This is for you, my friend. ‪#‎Courage‬
A Heron totem teaches balance; the ability to progress and evolve --
to walk into deeper waters without fear. It is important for someone with a Heron and Egret totem to learn to stand on their own two feet, to become independent and self-reliant.

I was talking about my future projects when he told me that I dream in technicolor and that I should see life the way it is. I do! My life is in technicolor and I believe that it's possible to achieve our dreams! It's all a question of perspective!  This piece is called vivacious 18x24

Je parlais de mes projets futurs quand il m'a dit que je rêve en couleur et que je devrais voir la vie telle qu'elle est. C'est ce que je fais! Ma vie est haute en couleurs et je crois que tous les rêves sont possibles. C'est une question de perspective! Bon début de semaine!

Eliminating my consumption of cable news doesn't mean I'm not aware of what's going on. I don't watch because I feel hyper aware, already. With compassion and empathy in my heart, I try to create as much beauty and as much positive energy as I can, to compensate for the sadness. It doesn't always work, of course and I get into funks like everyone else. But I feel this is one way I can contribute to the co-creation of a better world: Sharing creations instead of spreading news of the destruction.
As a coach, I meet a lot of creators who stay hidden in their caverns. They tell me they are afraid to share the essence of who they are. I understand the fear, but the world needs to see your light, now, more than ever. Shine, dear one. Shine and support others who dare to do the same Love and light to everyone today and every day. This piece is called soaring and it represents perfectly how I feel today.

Je ne regarde plus les nouvelles ni la télé depuis des années, mais je suis encore hyper-consciente de tout ce qui se passe dans le monde. Je commence chaque journée avec l'intention de créer au lieu de consommer et de faire rayonner le plus d'énergies positives possible. Je ne réussis pas ma mission à chaque jour, bien entendu. Moi aussi, j'ai des moments sombres et difficiles... mais je crois sincèrement que partager nos créations au lieu de partager les nouvelles de la destruction c'est une façon simple de contribuer à la co-création d'un monde meilleur.
Dans mon travail de coaching, je rencontre beaucoup de créateurs qui sont dans leurs grottes et qui ont peur de partager leur lumière et leurs idées. La planète a besoin de votre lumière! Rayonnez et soutenez les autres créateurs aussi! Cette oeuvre se nomme "Essor" et elle représente exactement comment je me sens ce matin. Je vous envoie plein d'amour et de lumière !

D-5 ‪#‎SpringIntoAction‬
I wish I had special powers that would instantly make people release their fears and feel empowered. Empowered to speak up when it matters. Empowered to be who they are, fully and completely. Empowered to unite and make decisions that will help co-create a better world for all our children. The greatest downfall of humanity is our collective silence and inaction as we allow fear to govern our thoughts, words and actions. It's sad to think that one day, our children will have to bear the responsibilities we are not assuming today. I have hope for the future, though. I understand I have a responsibility to occupy the space I am responsible for. There are many ways to make the world a better place. it depends on how we occupy our space. I want to fill my space with optimism, ideas, positive actions joy, laughter and love and co-creation. How about you?

Introduction
Bonjour and welcome! 

I'm a mixed-media artist from Quebec, Canada and I joyfully pour my heart and soul into everything I create. I'm greatly influenced by nature and through my art, I'm exploring the "liberty" theme. I often paint and draw birds and flowers and I greatly enjoy working with everything from pen and ink, acrylics, watercolours and even my #wacom Tablet. 

I'm an art unschooler, for lack of a better term, and I enjoy guiding people and showing them how to allow their creativity to flow. 


My art is now available in my Boutique Special orders are accepted, when possible. 

Our family embraces voluntary simplicity and we plan to build a sustainable, green home and learning center in the future. 

I love to learn and I live to help. 

As Howard Thurman once said : "Don't ask what the world needsAsk what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
