is that I don’t want to ruin the painting. I really like the look of the letters—it will require a lot of practice today. Hopefully by tonight I am showing you the finished piece. Off to the sweatshop…

Creativity nestles in a corner of Poplar

It’s a real moment in one’s Life when you can read a beautiful, evoking piece of writing about something you’ve created, that is close to your heart.

Well it’s happened and thanks to East Londonista I am brimming with pride and gratitude for her creative efforts in her latest blog. http://londonandeast.wordpress.com/2013/08/25/creativity-nestles-in-a-corner-of-poplar/

Do check it out… it perfectly evokes the feelings, sensations and sense of connection we all co-created together early in August 2013…

It really goes to prove the power of Twitter which is how I first met East Londonista and our creative connections online went from there…

Beautiful…

I can end this day a wee bit more happy and proud than I started off.
And keep the momentum going for the next Dinner & Drawing

On a close and sticky August evening I emerged from the Docklands Light Railway, and headed towards the East India Dock Road in search of the Aberfeldy Estate and Open to Create, a live-work space occupied by Anna B Sexton. I had signed up to her intriguingly titled ‘Dinner and Drawing’ event held monthly at Anna’s Open to Create studio in E14, a short walk from the Blackwall Tunnel and London’s Docklands.

The noise of the traffic raging around us soon passed into the background, as I was welcomed into the tranquil space. Anna, a mentor and coach who has specialised in helping people realise their potential through creativity for more than 10 years, poured me a cool glass of cordial and explained what would happen in the next 2-and-a-half hours as we waited for the rest of the small group to arrive.

This evening’s class was to feature collage…

Finding paintings in the everyday…

How often do you wander down the street and not really see the magic of the colour & brightness around you…

On an art walk today after a creative coaching workshop @ Idea Store Shadwell Learning Centre I spotted this gorgeous slice of abstract art hidden away off The Highway,  Shadwell,  Limehouse,  East London.

What slices of colour do you see in everyday life in and around your day to day wanderings?

Thankful on Friday

Sometimes when you think there is no real point in going forward – that’s where I was this morning not so cosied up in bed…

I choose to tell the truth about the wealth I have in my Life and all the different places this is gifted to me from and by…

And then I am invited to read Suzie Pindar’s blog after working with her this week…

How delightful to read what I know in my heart to be true, if only I give myself time and space to hear it and re-remember it.

So thank you to Suzie for sharing your gratitude and re-reminding me of why I do what I love i.e. support artists & creatives to grow more and sustain their practices across all the amazing forms of creative self expression.

It is really true that when I / we get grateful for what we have there is more to be shared

The Naked Artist - SUZIE PINDAR

Had a meeting this week, quite last minute on my part with the Creator of ‘Open  To Create’ Anna B Sexton, what a pleasure to meet someone that understands who I am and what I want to achieve and how to make it possible. A big plus in my life to get some confusion out the way and re focus on how to drive myself forward.  I felt upbeat and alive afterwards.

Doing a lot of soul searching at the moment, its interesting to hear ‘ you spend alot of time in your head’ i wonder how i can get out my head. I keep seeing little stick figures working away in my head. Lol

im sat on my bed, waiting for a phonecall from work, but who knows if it will ring today. If not i will be very active today and sort my life out constructively. Do away…
