Moving in new circles....... is an interesting experience. Lately I have become involved in joining new circles. A couple of new art groups; one a new art journal group that my dear friend Lena has set up, so that like minded friends can meet regularly in our neighbourhood (eastern suburbs), and a contemporary art group once a month on a Saturday run by the artist Julia Mattea. Also a sacred healing circle that meets fortnightly run by the gifted and world renowned healer and best selling book author Michelle Mayur, who helps women to empower themselves and to reach their fullest potential both as women and as change makers in the World. Her sacred circle group includes women from across the world.
I have met some wonderful giving souls through all these experiences and feel my cup overflowing with friendship and joy. Most importantly to me is that I have found that the energy and knowledge I am gifted by spending time in other's company is limitless. There is always something new we can learn by stepping out of our comfort zone, extending ourselves outwards toward life, (read: getting out of my art cave), to continue my art journey of learning new things, new styles, create more expansively, and you really do need the positive, encouraging and supportive energy of others to stimulate this.
Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements
in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions.
It encompasses a diverse range of human activities,
creations, and modes of expression....
