Angel Painting by Texas Contemporary Artist Laurie Justus Pace, Workshop Day One.

Angel Bidding
14 x 20 ft  Watercolor
 While going through unpacked boxes and art bags I found a few of my angel painting from the 90's.  Wow that was a long time ago. Talk about growth and change in work... you will be seeing the things from 12-15 years ago.

Day One Selah Ranch Discovery Artist Retreat

“Life Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zone”  Neal Donald Welsch

As this workshop journey begins you must be ready to work on yourself in uncharted territory.  There is much inside of you that you have never explored or allowed to surface.

Now, today, is the day to “try your hand” at creating and enjoy the process with out worrying about the product.  No one has to  ‘approve’ your work.  No one has to tell  you “you are doing a good job”;  There is no right way to do anything, there is only the way you are doing it.

Write in your journal this morning about ‘releasing yourself from the rules that bind you”.  For just this journal entry only, imagine yourself to be ….simply to be.  Give yourself permission to forget the rules you learned on being creative and embrace and accept the permission I am giving you to play and enjoy the day.  Write in your journal the things you want to ‘leave behind’ today… the things you want to be free from.

Sketch something that catches your eye in the room in your journal along with your writing.  Date it.

Today we will be talking a lot about who we are and what we are attracted to in art and in the world. I have several exercises that the artists will be doing and after we go through those... we will be painting from still life set ups of fruits, onions, plants and flowers.  IF I remember to take the camera this morning I will take pictures if they do not mind me putting them on the blog.  Wish you were here to take this journey with us.

Choose to forgive yourself and move forward in His Love.


"And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. "--Matthew 6:12
