Today, I thought I’d celebrate Friday with a speed painting of one of the spreads I did for Book Of Days not long ago. Here you go.

MUSIC BY KRYSTYN PIXTON who you need to know, because GORGEOUS!

I’m making some changes in my life that are making me incredibly anxious, and, frankly, triggering the fuck out of me, so I’m going to be self-soothing this weekend by doing lots of painting and puttering. I find transitions easier to bear when I keep myself too busy to think too much. My brain can be a dangerous place.

I also wanted to remind you that Journal52 is on sale for $20 until the end of this blog along! Please check it here! And if you visit my Patreon today, you can get this week’s edition for freebies! Yay!

About The Blog Along

Every year, twice a year, once in April, and again in September, I blog every day for a month, and invite others to do the same. We have a Facebook group, and in that group the only rule is that for every link you post to your own blog, you go off and read three other blogs and leave a comment. This is simply a way to ensure that a community happens rather than just a ‘promo’ group. You’re welcome to join in as long as you are willing to read and comment on three blogs for every blog you post. Click here to join us!  If you’re too busy for that, you’re welcome to just blog on your own for a month. Easy peasy. No one is keeping score. There are no prizes except that you get to build your own readership by regularly populating your blog with good content.

Before You Go

I would love it if you'd join my "Beloveds List", which is my newsletter. I use this list to invite you to monthly live gatherings on YouTube, send you coupon codes and information on classes that are opening for registration, to announce giveaways and other subscriber perks, and to provide you with access to my VIP resources page. This list is especially for my people, and you are obviously one of my people. xo

P.S. If you believe white privilege isn't a thing, that we are a post racist society, that 'the wall' is a good idea, that artists should shut up about social justice and stick with posting pretty things, or that gay people are going to hell, please don't join this list. I'm definitely *not* going to be your cup of tea. Thank you!
