Inspire Me Thursday

"doorway", Soft Pastel on Paper

This weeks "Inspire Me Thursday" challenge is for us to do a self portrait without a camera.

So, I did what felt natural...I played with my pastels.

This is me, entering into a new doorway within my soul. In this new sacred place, I am a woman who is learning to hear her own voice, pay attention to her own intuition and trust her own judgment.


Thank you to each of you who have sent your love, support, encouragement and wisdom my way this week via comments, emails or a parcel in the mail. Our appointment is tomorrow morning and I feel so, so brave and full of courage. I will imagine all of you standing around the doctors office, holding hands in a big sisterhood circle.

My cup runneth over...

Great self portrait. I love oil pastels. I used to work with them for years and now sculpture has captured my attention. They are still fun though. I keep a stash in case I feel the urge to get my hands dirty.

Your drawing is gorgeous! Speaks to a lot of us, I think. You are an amazing artist, can't wait to see more. Good luck tomorrow- everything happens for a reason, even if we don't know the reason when it happens. Oh, I tagged you as well- hope that's ok!

wow... there's something very magical about that picture. the way you created it, it seems to move if you watch long enough... as if i can see her foot rising and stepping through that door.

I love it. THANK YOU.

This self portrait is sooooo powerful and beautiful but there seems to be a sadness about it, my prayers are with you today, maybe it's the uncertainty and your HOPE to have a child that is showing sadness, if it brings any comfort at all, I am through that door with you
