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
