Portraiture and Colour – two difficult concepts!

Last week we did portraiture…our own.  That was way more difficult than you can image.  Look at yourself in a mirror and draw what you see.

I can no longer be considered a terrified beginner, a beginner, definitely, but not so terrified. However, I think every class is going to have its own challenges and therefore terrors.  This week we finished, or mostly finished, our “ribbons” of the week before.  This was an exercise in shading and shadows.

But let me digress.  I mentioned in a previous post that I wasn’t sure why IContinue reading “Naturopath or Witchy Woman? by Liz Saunders”

End of the first 5 days on the new supplements and I can sleep!

For those of you who’ve never had any trouble sleeping, this won’t mean much to you, but I CAN SLEEP!  I started the new supplements on Monday.  Here they are (except for the NutraSea which I started 2 weeks ago)   A friend of mine who’s a sequential homeopath told me, simplistically, they were toContinue reading “End of the first 5 days on the new supplements and I can sleep!”
