LET'S FACE IT 20 Class is Open(2)

If you missed my last post

…Let’s Face It 2020  is now open for registration !

If you register by November 31st, you will get a discount on the price!

Please use this link https://karabullockart.com/ref/84, it is my own special link and is how I get paid for the class ❤ Everyone that registers using my link will get a set of 5 postcards! Just message me after you register.

As you know,  LET’S FACE IT is a course created and hosted by Kara Bullock. It is for anyone that wants to practice creating portraits and figurative art, but is especially designed for those of you that have felt scared or intimidated to do so at some point in your life. Together, we want to share with you our strategies, tips, and techniques that we use in order to create our portrait and figurative artwork. You will leave this course feeling confident enough in your skills to never feel intimidated again. In 2020, we will be studying style development and the course will equally focus on portraits AND figures! I personally  will be teaching a figurative piece which is something I don’t do as frequently as portraits so it will be a learning experience for me too! I will be doing a main lesson and a min lesson. It’s going to be awesome!

Canadian Thanksgiving sale ❤️

This weekend is thanksgiving here in Canada and I’m so thankful for so many things. Have you ever done a gratitude journal? I have kept one on and off for over 25 years. It’s a great way to stay aware of your daily blessings. One of the things I’m consistently grateful for is being able to make a living as an artist. It is truly a blessing.

To Be Seen And Heard, mariapacewynters

12″x12″ mixed media painting on gold canvas. The sides are 1.5″ deep and are gold.

This painting is available in my Etsy shop. HERE 

The last few months have been such a struggle. I have fallen out of step with myself. I am not sure if it is my age (turned 51 this year) or my kid’s age (13 and 16) or that I feel like a huge transformation is coming.  Maybe it is noticeable in art, maybe it isn’t. I can’t tell because I am too close to it. My girls are becoming so independent; these amazing, opinionated, goal oriented people. They are not mini me’s or mini Chris’, they are their own people. They have their own likes, their own thoughts, their own style …I mean, they always did but it has become so much more apparent as of late.  They are getting ready to leave me, they are preparing themselves for schools they want to go to and cities they want to live in. I am happy for them but I am sad too. I just wish that they could stay this age a little longer. I know that I have always wished this, at every age, but I want them to stay with me a little longer. I think that is why I found it really hard to work this summer. I wanted to spend all of my time with them, drinking in all of this special togetherness that we have right now. I know how fleeting this time is. I try to live in the moment, but I’ve never been good at it.   I know we have a bond that will never break, I know that red string can go on stretching forever, I know all of these things. I also know that as they transform themselves, I too am going to have to transform myself. These are the growing pains that I am feeling right now. That is how life works. That is the beauty of being alive. I will transform, I will heal and I will transform again.
