Chapter 8: Half way there

Welcome friends and visitors to our The Artist´s Way mid chapter 8 Check In!

Time to talk about our morning pages. Do you number them? Do you keep count of them? Do you keep them steadily at three or write more or less pages according to the circumstances?

Have artist´s dates gone missing? Are you asking for too much of your dates? (as in "I need to go across country to the best and biggest museum ever?" type of train of thought instead of going to the mall for some window shopping)

Talking about artists and dates, let me introduce you to a local artist.

I met my art teacher Mónica Dominguez on my birthday this year. She is one of the best birthday presents ever! :D

I discovered her new art station while on my way to meet friends for lunch.

This is the view from the main entrance, there are still another two walls full to the brim of pretty pieces to make and the most scrumptious colours. She also has three classrooms downstairs and more upstairs. Inspiration galore!
She paints a wide range of subjects from flowers to pottery going through abstracts, vegetables and portraits. Here are a few examples of her pottery series.
A close up to show the yumminess of her textures.
And the faux leather frames effect.
The glass series. I´m in love with this one. Look at the reflections! Pure light genius.

She answered task #4 to play with us.
I am violet. I am creative. I can go from an idea to another one, from one technique to another. I am thoughtful, I can vary my colour and therefore the sensations. I like all the range from purple to violet.
A room in those colours is: freshness, life, love.
Violet is the colour of transmutation. It can turn bad into good, just thinking about it.

How to share with MrLinky: you type in your name in the first box (the way you´d introduce yourself) and then the url/link to your post (not your whole blog url) where you share your work with the current chapter. When you come back next week your name will likely automatically be entered but you need to redo or paste over the url/link with your new post's address.

Paula, thank you for keeping all of us going with the Artist's Way. I know I have tried to do this on my own and have never finished. But now I look forward to your post each Sunday and to everyone's comments and links. So I know I will finish and I will also learn alot by doing so. How wonderful to have such a beautiful place to visit so close to you. Her work is very special. Thank you for sharing it with us.
