A romantic collection

A couple of months ago I did a 5 days of art project on Facebook with some of my fave art people. I'm looking back at the little collection of art I shared and really digging how the "gingerness" carries a feminine enchanted tone throughout all the work I'm doing whether it be portraits, mantras or abstracts. It's good to take a moment of pause to enjoy, look with fresh eyes, and simply be happy that I can put paint to canvas and have it soothe my soul the way it does and inspire joy in others. Here is the collection of 15 paintings I shared:
Left: Truth Journey / Top right: Allow / Bottom right: Be True

Left: Winter Angel of Light / Top right: Winter Angel of Dark / Bottom right: Courage 

Left: Bloom / Top right: Spirited / Bottom right: Unfold

Top: Solace Abstract / Bottom left: Abstract, untitled / Bottom right: Pause 

 Left: Summer Flowers / Top right: Grow / Bottom right: Summer Flowers II

With heart, G

p.s. many of these pieces can be found as fine art prints in my etsy shop. If you don't see what you're looking for there please contact me and I'll be happy to create something for you.

Six Breaths Retreat!

Lovely friends, I am going to an art retreat! I am so so so excited and blissed out about it. It's been awhile since I've taken time away for myself and my creative heart. It will be a really unique experience working with two completely opposite teachers on a farm in a tranquil setting, along with daily yoga and fresh local food. Heaven. Here's a peek at the instructors:

DANIELLE DONALDSON – whimsical, feminine

BLU SMITH  – bold abstract

It's happening June 12 – 14 at Sleeping Dog Farm in Victoria BC (Canada) and I'll be posting and tagging on Instagram as I go with #sixbreaths2015. Follow along to see all the goodness and fun that comes from it! And if you have any super recommendations of inspiring things to do while in Victoria please leave me a comment below or email me at ginger at redpearcreative dot com.

The retreat is hosted by Poppet Art Studio, a Victoria based creative studio run by the talented artist Andrea Soos, with lots and lots of classes for everyone. Check it out!
