Healing Art of Writing (+ painting)

Demo:  Inks and collage on w/c paper 10 X 11″

The gears of shared art making were spinning yesterday afternoon at Dominican University in San Rafael, California as I shared my approach to art journaling with health professionals, poets and prose writers from all over the country who were mid way through a week long retreat titled “The Healing Art of Writing”.

I was honored to be there, and they seemed content to be setting words aside for an afternoon and  diving into colors and shapes and images with ink play and collage.  This playful demo piece tells a story of the afternoon – that of gears turning smoothly as we joined together in play, generating creative energy and with it, healing. The little red heart on the right appeared as the ink ran, revealing my feeling about this group!
