Mindy Lacefield is a mixed media artist who draws inspiration from the nostalgia and rainy days of her childhood. Creating from the heart of a 7 year old, Mindy cherishes the tactile process of painting. As the layers and colors evolve, decisions are made in the process of making mistakes that fosters growth. Surrendering to the outcome of moment. Mistakes are applauded and accidents cherished. It is only through the finished work, allows her to be one with the process. Through surrendering, the most beautiful thing about this creative journey. Stillness is achieved and a new awakening of hearing the voice of God has been.

Appreciation


Last night, I was in my studio painting and thinking about appreciation. " A walk, appreciating planet Earth"
How appreciation can change everything, making us focus on the good side of life.
When I walk my dog after lunch, I make that time, a time to appreciate, after all we live in this planet, this is our home. Even I live in the middle of the city, I can always find things to appreciate - the sunny day, the trees, the way leaves move with wind, the flower that is blooming in the sidewalk, the clouds with funny shapes, the way someone gives me a beautiful smile, the stillness of that moment....
When we appreciate, that love is coming right back to you, I believe that.




Note:
( a very important one ;) 

My online class "Watercolor fun" will open for registrations this Monday 

(12 April), so stay tuned ;)


Wishing you a great, fun weekend
Appreciating your support and love

Thank you!

Snow White in watercolor


During the last weekend I bought a new book - The art of Disney from Golden books by Charles Salomon, and this pages make me so happy. All this stories and characters are part of my childhood and I have all this sweet memories, songs, smiles and magic, that I have to journal about it :)
So I have picked my watercolors (while my videos for watercolor class are uploading) and Snow White was the choosen one.


I thing this was my first movie on cinema so it's really closed to my heart, what a pleasure to create
Snow White. My inner child is jumping with joy :)


Try this: pick one of your favorite child book and with your own style try to draw, paint, journal about it.
If you like share with me your favorite Disney character ;) I really would love to know.

Magic is something you make!


While I am working on my new online class "Watercolor fun", filming, editing, organizing.... I make some tiny, tiny breaks to play a bit on my studio. Paper tags are perfect because they can make small but beautiful pieces of art and I really have fun making these.
In fact the tag above will be in the Watercolor Fun class has tutorial ;)



Today I have finished this one with the quote "Magic is something you make", because really it is what I feel. Believing in yourself, focus on what you want, act and expect the best is something magical.
Really!!!!! your point of view changes everything and with a glimpse (a thought) everything ajust to what you believe. That is making magic!
Wishing you a great weekend

Flow and paint - mixed media art class in Italy


Today I am sharing some pics of my Flow and Paint class in Italy. 
I have made this class in partnership with Simona Anghileri and Color and crafts shop and I am telling you they were the perfect partners for me :) 



The class was in 21 March in the first day of spring, I have started with a circle on the floor where we have made some breathing work and meditation to set the tone for this Flow and paint class.
Simona had brilliant ideas to start working with this group of 18 wonderful woman - they made the background using fresh flowers and vegetables to create wonderful textures into those canvas, so much fun!!!!
The perfect idea to put the class flowing :)





What a pleasure to work with a person like Simona, we were in perfect sync :) love you girl!



After the background we started to discover and feel what that canvas and shades of painting want to try to say to each of us, and so a new phase of the painting started and beautiful things emerged :)


Me painting :)





All the girls have made a terrific job, even they were beginners they have completed all steps with a smile on their faces, exploring, discovering, feeling ....woman that opened doors to creativity. 
Here is a proud teacher ;)



What a blessing, to share and paint with all of this wonderful ladies.
Thank you universe!
