Some inspirational quotes from a mother and artist, featured in the book: 85 8×8 Paintings ~ A Dance of Intention & Creation:
“Spreading word about my idea and the intention behind it gave me a reason to follow through. When others were watching and waiting, they were unknowingly holding me to my path. Plus, the excitement and anticipation was viral, and I couldn’t help but want to succeed!”
“There is a daily conflict for a mother of young children. For myself, it is a challenge that reawakens every morning as I balance my desire to be a patient, graceful, loving mother and at the same time fulfill an instinctive urge to bring forth the creations of my soul and realize my dreams.”
“Creating these little paintings allowed me to make a complete mess of my studio while giving in to the process; surrendering to the pull, and recognizing the eagerness of my new community who kept asking for more. I’m a clean freak, but the surrendering, thus the mess, was necessary.”
“Sometimes I feel ~ and I am ~ so strongly outcast. But I smile and feel joyful thankfulness that I get to be me in my world, despite my awkwardness. I might feel like a mama with a completely separate set of ideals, but I realize millions of mothers share my feelings. I frequently find one of these mothers, and feel so thankful to be connected…” Journal Entry: February 2009
