Moving to the Heart This Full Moon ♥ ♥ ♥

Another celebration calls, I am so happy the full moon is almost here! Tomorrow, March 5th the moon will be in full bloom, giving us another cycle and opportunity to reflect and grow, as all things are amplified with the full moon. This time of month always serves as a reminder for me to be aware of the state of mind I am in and what thoughts and actions I have been choosing, as everything is amplified, so is my state of being. Sometimes the ride is more rough than others. Good news, nothing is permanent and we always have a choice and a hand in creating our future. Here’s to renewing my vows of consciously choosing love in every thought, action and decision as continual, ever evolving daily practice ♥ Cheers! My Intention for this full moon: To truly “See the Bigger Picture- which does not paint one side as right and the other side as wrong, but is able to see the Light and shadow of all parties or parts involved so that the full picture is illuminated- We can experience deep healing and release at this Full Moon” ~Quote from Mystic Mama 

full moon, aries in mars, neptune in pisces, astrology, love, encompassing moonlight and love

Figure Studies & Gesture Drawings

Figure Drawing with the family!
I love visiting my family, full of talented artists and excellent models. It still mystifies me how I was so lucky to be born into such a creative hot spring of a family where we all share the same passion, love and talent for art. It was my brother Skyler’s last request to spend his last few days with us together drawing each other, rotating modeling while the rest draw in a circle. He left to Indianapolis for two years for us, and I am so glad we got to spend a few hours in pure artistic bliss – time has not gone by so fast as when you are with the people you love so much doing what you love so much.
Here are a few of my favorites sketches from that session:


More to come! My sister and I are attending a figure drawing session at another artist’s local studio tomorrow, excited for another day :)
