Getting ready for Flora Bowley!


"Open Door" Tracy Verdugo 60cmx60cm. For sale here

Well its official and I am so excited! The amazing Flora Bowley will be sharing her talent with a very lucky group at an amazing Venue in Jervis Bay on April 2nd and 3rd 2011. There are just a few spots left so please let me know ASAP if you would like to attend. I've been getting a little free and practising my splashing and spraying, dabbing and intuitive mark making. I even pulled out an old canvas I've been meaning to paint over for a while, a crazy Mexican cat that sits in our loungeroom and really PLAYED!!

Not sure if I'm finished with it yet...I might just play some more :)

Wishing you all time to play, time to seek out the beauty around you and most of all remember to cultivate a sense of WONDER!


A place of definite awe and wonder! Our family at Yosemite while on a 7 month trip in 2008. More of our adventures here :)





People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering. --Augustine

Guess who's coming to town!!




A little lesson in manifesting this week so thought I would share. For about a year now I have been in love with the paintings of Flora Bowley. Not just the images but the energy and the intent that seem to be behind each one. In getting to know Flora a little better I suspect she has unlocked some magical key within that allows her to tap into her divine creativity in a way that most of us dream of and maybe even sometimes obtain in small beautiful glimpses. When I first read that Flora had started teaching I resolved that I would be attending one of her workshops ASAP..never mind that I'm on the other side of the world in Australia..it was definately going to happen somehow!





Fast forward to last month when I sent Flora a little note on Facebook suggesting she put Australia on her list for a workshop. To my surprise and delight Flora wrote back to say that indeed she would be in Australia in March to run workshops in Perth and Sydney. Somehow the Sydney one was not quite panning out so I suggested a little foray into the beautiful surrounds of the South Coast, sent off a couple of suggestions for possible retreat sites et voila!! Flora is coming to stay awhile at mi casa and teach a weekend retreat for 12-18 amazingly lucky creative souls. Be sure to let me know if you'd like to come and I'll send you details as we work them out. The retreat will be somewhere around the pristine shores of Jervis Bay ( 3 hours South of Sydney) probably on the weekend of 25th March. I cant wait!!!!!
