I. Today is better. Less wild-eyed in my misery. I feel myself rising a little again after a few days of spiralling. I’m trusting the process.
II. I got everything done for month-end except for the parts where I talk to the camera, and I’m saving that for tomorrow since I have to get all dolled up for a Samhain gathering with my art witches anyway. I’m looking forward to having an excuse to do more than a lick and a promise worth of self-care. This may result in selfies. :)
III. There are rumours of a fire taking place on November 1st, and I’m looking forward to that, too. We’re going to do a releasing ceremony. I will go to bed with the smell of campfire in my hair, and all will be well with the world.
IV. Darling Human is ready to be released into the world, and you’ll be hearing more about that next week. Moonshine will also be opening up for registration. BOD will open up in November, and new things will be happening on Patreon in 2021, so stay tuned. Subscribe to my newsletter if you want updates.
V. Today is for clawing my kitchen back from the usual work week ignoring of all things cleaning. I need to do something about the corner of chaos in my studio, too, since it is now full of broken-down cardboard and I can’t get to my closet without tripping over shit. AND I want to paint today. I have done no art just for myself since art winos last Sunday, and I really disliked what I painted for that. It’s just been sitting there taunting me, waiting for me to take another stab at it. If I can get it back from the brink of disaster, I might show it off. It’s for one of the Life Book taster sessions.
VI. Speaking of which LIFE BOOK!!! Use coupon code FEELHAPPY20 to get the early bird pricing!
VII. The rise in cases has taken the heart out of Halloween for me. I can’t find my enthusiasm for any of it, and I doubt I’ll get any door knocks anyway. After my Zoom session with the witches, I’ll do Samhain alone this year, I think. Me & the ancestors & candlelight & an oracle deck & journal. Maybe an intuitive painting. It’s also a blue moon – good for big wishes. Impossible ones even.
Make a wish.
VIII. LP Livestream!
IX. This song on repeat because LP!
Graphite transfers of selfies are fun, easy, and make me ridiculously happy. This is going up for BOD2020 on November 1st as my last official lesson for this year’s edition. The hair is giving me life.
Another graphite transfer – this one done with a colouring page created by the lovely Lore. This is going up in Moonshine as our monthly themed painting. THAT HAIR THOUGH! Also that pomegranate!! This one is called “The Ascent Is In The Descent”, and I am in love with her. She feels like a visitation, and I love it when that happens while I’m painting.
And that’s me today. Subdued, I know, but I’m okay with it. Today, I will do what I can, and that’s all any of us can do.
