Dreams of Atlantis

Dreams of Atlantis (Stacy Wills, 2012)

I've heard the stories told
 so often, 
I think they are my own.
of happier times -
a glorious Golden Age;
but  I was born long after
 sank beneath the waves.

Learning Something New

At the Butterfly Ball (Stacy Wills, 2012)

I met June Rollins earlier this year during an online retreat through Abbey of the Arts.  I was captivated by her sweet spirit, and fell in love with her incredible art; in particular, a process she calls "Dreamscaping."   June has been offering in-person workshops for awhile now, and has recently put together a dvd showing her step by step process for the rest of us who live too far away to get to one.   The process involves using alcohol inks on yupo paper.   I love experimenting and learning new techniques and methods to bring beauty into the world, and June is a wonderful teacher.  So if you're in the mood for  something new, I'd highly recommend giving "Dreamscaping" a try!    I created At the Butterfly Ball   by following June's method, plus a little "sacred altering" for good measure.

Creative Bliss

Under the Full Moon (Stacy Wills, 2012)

Under the Full Moon is the result of  a recent Saturday afternoon of creative bliss at my friend Bev's fantastic new studio in Clinton, MS,  The Intuitive Painting Place, plus a little more "sacred altering" at home.   I went to Bev's studio not knowing what I would end up painting - this is not the kind of place where everyone paints  the same thing, but rather,  the kind of place where leaning into one's own intuition and innate creativity is supported and encouraged.  All art supplies are provided for you, you don't need to bring a thing except yourself and a willingness to PLAY!   Love to paint?  Great!  Don't know how to paint?  Even better!    Group, as well as, individual sessions are available.
