I’m reading Soulistry by June Mack Maffin in BOD-P with the gorgeous women who have opted in to deepening their journal art experience with me. Every week I release a PDF and full length video in which I ‘art to’ a prompt contained within the book. While not formally instructive, these videos do cover supplies & techniques as well as my own musings on the subject we’re tackling that week.
It’s mahoosively fun, and the work around self-inquiry that I see being done is totally gobsmacking. Totally. *Awestruck*
This week, we’re talking about digging deep and letting the waters of the well within flow. In response, I made a Glastonbury inspired painting of what could be Mary Magdalene or Morgan Le Fey or a mermaid. Who knows. What I do know is that I spent two hours in the zone. Here’s what I made:
She’s wearing a pendant that’s modeled after the cover of the Chalice Well. I sewed it on. Fun, fun! Around her hair and face, I’ve included portions of The Charge of The Goddess by Doreen Valiente.
Here’s a close up of her tender face.
She’s truly mixed media. I used mark makers, water soluble materials, acrylics, charcoal, spray inks, all on a piece of watercolour paper.
While Soulistry and what we’re doing within it is definitely very much a part of the Book Of Days experience, it is also a beautiful stand alone experience. If all I ever did from week to week was sit down to make my Soulistry inspired spread, I’d be satisfied. I intend to begin releasing these full length videos and PDFs as standalone, instantly delivered ‘mini workshops’ for a nominal fee ($5 per mini-workshop) with a Facebook group set up so those who are ‘in it’ can be ‘in it’ together. Info about that will go up shortly. If you’d rather get the full meal deal, signing up for BOD Premium will get you in for all of BOD plus Elements plus Soulistry. It’s a sweet deal.
Here’s a Time Lapse version of the hour plus long video that was released in BOD-P yesterday.
Thanks go out to June Mack Maffin who has been sharing the link to the BOD page since she previewed some of the work being done in Soulistry. She approves. :) We are very stoked to have her as a guest in our platform so she may witness the beauty her book is creating in the world.
