Reflections of an Artistic Mystic

Shelley Irish, 1/23/19

I wrote a jingle! I’ve been working up to producing art tips and info videos, and this week I hit a milestone. I was able to get a lot of the work done to make the video intro for my next art tip video, Editing Oil Paintings – Dry Underpainting. Omg! So excited.

I am organic while my husband is more techy. He has taught me so many things that help my organic-ness become assessable through technology. I am appreciating him a lot. When I played him the jingle last night he said it sounded like me. (I play piano for his/our band.) I wrote the jingle through a computer program instead of noodling around on my keyboard, so the process was very different. That he recognized a style that crossed over between the 2 methods really happily surprised me, it meant a lot to me. 

I’m giving myself a goal to produce one S’ATI’S video every other month. S’ATI’S stands for Shelley’s Art Tips and Info Show. This one I will finish next week. 

I had a nice week otherwise. I taught Meditative Painting on Saturday, painted a lot on Sunday, did a bunch of business tasks, wrote my S’ATI’S jingle and prepped for another video the last couple days. Today I helped a student get his artwork listed on an art networking website, and made and scheduled my art and spirit sharables for February. 

Thanks for letting me share my art world with you. I hope the rest of your week is great!
