Moving forward step by step

A new journey and a new learning curve!







I am pleased and excited to announce that I am branching out with my first official website (after so many years as a faithful blogger!)
As many of you know I have been offering online instructional classes on the Trodden Path for the past couple of years and have been so very grateful for the opportunity of working with Jane Spakowsky and this fine artistic community..As the site is closing-I am  now in the position to feature my own classes and occasional one of a kind larger paintings  in one spot  .
Navigating my way around in baby steps at this point..but if you would like to subscribe to my mailing list there I will keep you in the loop! .I am feeling activated with the possibilities! http://www.heathermurray.net/





I will continue with my Etsy store for now as it will be a place to offer small works at an extra friendly cost to patrons

For now  I will also continue with this blog as it is rather dear to my heart :-)

snow days lead to creative frenzy!

Well that is the hope anyway..Although  I do admit that staying put fosters an appreciation for simple soul nourishing moments ..and slows the tempo down re obligatory things to accomplish..in saying that today I made an awesome two pot vegetarian shepherds pie ..Sorted my errant leggings, tights and stockings into a few small vintage suitcases and drank copious amounts of tea with yummy local honey..




I am planning to enter a local gallery's  call for artists for a Mexican themed show..just because I am yearning for colour again..yes ..already! Frida Kahlo is my subject and I am trying to expand my palette with her as my muse.



  I also altered and embellished a Frida Cage doll made as  my working subject for an online class ..She was looking under dressed and fragile ..so I changed that with beads lace and a new plant stand bottom!
