Kitty in love

Kitty in Love painting & necklace by Kathy Crabbe

“Kitty in Love” painting & necklace by Kathy Crabbe

Kitty in Love is my newest commission and is painted with acrylics on reclaimed pine board. It comes with a matching necklace.  My client cried when she first saw it and I take that to be a good sign!  She also suggested I paint more kitties in this style which is quite a bit more realistic than my usual style. I tried to explain that it’s just not my thing and that doing so wouldn’t be true to my nature.  It got me thinking about how approval-seeking is just not how I, as an artist operate. I must paint first from within, expressing my heart and soul, because that’s what it’s all about for me. That’s also why I paint in so many different styles. It’s because it’s how I’m feeling on that particular day and it’s also most likely just what I needed to hear and see. I think that this quote explains things quite well.

We want you to understand at this moment that eighty percent of what you are doing in your life has been motivated by a need for approval from someone else, or a cultural belief that what you need to do is a certain thing, or by a certain time…How can you be in your own knowing when you are operating from truths that are misaligned to your requirements for growth?  ~ Paul Selig, “I Am The Word”

Prosperity in Bloom because you’re worth it!

I took this photo of a lone artichoke planted in front of my house early this morning. It doesn’t especially like hot, dry weather and so I won’t have a chance to eat it, but instead will enjoy it’s beautiful purple bloom which ties in neatly with my good friend Chad Woodward’s article about yesterday’s Sagittarius full moon. He poses the questions: “What is blossoming for you now? What great, gestating truth emerges into the light for you to embrace?”

For myself, I had an incredible marketing session with Marisa of Creative Thursday yesterday and feel invigorated, re-charged and ready to  initiate a new project and make some big changes creatively and soulfully. What I’m learning is important for all of us, but especially for artists and women.  We need to learn how to value ourselves and our work cause if we don’t, no one else will.  To supplement this work I’m also doing a 40 day Prosperity Program; a meditation that I’ve shared with my Creative Soul Circle, so if you’re a Museletter subscriber you are more than welcome to join us and try it out for yourself.
