A New Love

Hey, it's been some time I've posted. It wasn't my intention to stay away so long but there have been many reasons for my delay. I'm hoping that you all have had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. It's been kind of blah out this way for the past few weeks actually and I think my mood has been matched by the weather.
Some good things have happened though. My grandson took his first steps all alone on May 22nd ...YAY..!!! They had been on vacation and the little sweetie decided to wait til he got back to grandma's to go off on his own.
I've been taking a few workshops online . One of them is over at Roses On My Table. It is such a wonderful place to find awesome projects and Zinnia is such a fantastic teacher. Her latest workshop is using beeswax and oil pastels on your image. Well, I've got to say, I have found a new love. There is something about the smell of the wax and the texture it gives my pieces that just makes me HAPPY. I can't stop myself from looking for images to use and my ideas just don't fit in my head
Here are a few of the pieces I've worked on and am working on at the moment.

I am also taking a wonderful workshop with Paula Insall "Divine Romance". This is a workshop that helps you to channel God's work through your art. It has been a very positive experience for me so far and I recommend it to all who would love to project your feelings through your art.

This is what I have so far..

I am also doing my morning pages from "The Artist"s Way" and I need a new book. I found this juicy fat book in my stash but didn't really like the cover. What would any of you do ???? Of course, transform it to your personal liking and that is what I did....what do you all think? Still have the back to do but here is it..


So, I have lots of ideas floating around in my head and am thinking of sharing some ideas with all of you via videos...Is there anything you would like to see or have anything you'd like to share with me just leave me a note and I will get back to you. Happy Creating to you all and many Blessings..!!!!!


  1. Love your new work, it's so different from your others. You can feel the sense of peace and love oozing from the new style of painting. It's so nice to see your passion in the form of you're art.... Love love love it. I'm also digging your new Artist way cover, your such an inspiration to me and everyone. I too have been working my artist way, after last week I felt an unnamed source brought the worst of me out, and I need to find my spiritual self again. I've also been listening to Eckhart Tolles book A New Earth. It always grounds me, and puts my thinking back where it needs to be. I love where your going, can't wait to see your new videos... I bet your going to be an amazing teacher, I love everything thing about you and your art... so I guess I'm but that's what Soul Sisters are for!!!! Love and hugs Yolanda. Call me later if you feel up to it, I'm here working on a collage piece. XOXOX

  2. Hi Yolanda....I popped over from the Tag Art Group at Roses. I love the altered front page of your book....the difference from before and after is inspiring! Your ladies are also gorgeous!
    Kind Regards
