beginnings, middles and ends

The Possibility of Pleasure. Tracy Verdugo. 2012. acrylic/mixed media on ply. 30x30cm.


a time of exploration and play,

new discoveries and endless possibilities

dancing and dabbling,

letting go and loosening up

my favourite time ♥


a sometimes tricky, muddling time of uncertainty,

losing the way, finding a new way,

losing trust,

wondering what the $%&^#% I'm doing,

self doubts and mini breakthroughs

and breakdowns...

( I have lots scattered through my studio in this stage :))


This Sacred Journey. Tracy Verdugo. 2012. acrylic and ink on canvas. 20x40cm. Sold.

a time of resolution,

"Sit a While by this Deep Pond of Love". Tracy Verdugo.2012. Acrylic/mixed media on ply. 30x30cm.

problem solving,

Just Stop and Breathe. Tracy Verdugo. 2012. acrylic/mixed media on ply. 30x30cm.

exhilaration and the thrill of seeing something new created,

The Possibility of Pleasure. Tracy Verdugo. 2012. acrylic/mixed media on ply. 30x30cm.

thanking the Universe and shaking my head at the wonder and beauty of the whole process ♥

What's your experience? I'd love to hear!

Tracy ♥♥♥

hi tracy ~ it's wonderful to hear that your workshops are coming to the US. thank you for sharing your amazing talents with us!

I am an artist who is discovering her "mojo" through the pages in my art journal and is excited by the growth i see there. One day i will take the leap to canvas! ~ vicki xo

Pretty much the same. Even going back to change that one thing in a painting that just doesn't feel right, even if I've already called it done and signed it. I love it when I stick with it and bring my work through the rough patches of uncertainty.

Hi Tracy. I love this post! I will certainly help me in my painting process as I'm feeling a tad lost with a few pieces I also have scattered around my art room. Paula xo
