{what do your fears tell you}

Where Dreams Grow
a glimpse of my new teaching space

Do they tell you to do it anyway?
Are they a sign that you're on the right track?
Do they drown out your hope and confidence?
Or are they fire in your belly?

I said to Ms L at the start of the week "I don't think I've ever felt quite so scared shitless" and she replied "well you must be on the right track then".  She's a gem that woman.

I'm running a little behind schedule but I hope to launch details of my first in-person painting workshop next Tuesday.  This is going to be an amazing journey with painting, suitable for beginners or the seasoned painter.  It's going to be intimate, joyful, playful and colourful, just as painting should be.  There'll be inspiration, conversation and exploration.

This is a dream come true, and the beginning of a much, much bigger dream. Which is why it probably feels so scary!

I hope you'll be able to join me in the studio.

Have a lovely weekend peeps.


  1. What a beautiful space! And a fantastic idea.
    I know you can do it. I know you will do it. And I know it will be amazing.
    Ms L is absolutely spot on. Gotta love that Dr Doch.

  2. I can't wait to talk about this!! I sent you a personal email about skype, I can do it this weekend if you can. Sooo very excited to hear everything!

  3. How incredibly exciting Cathy... love your art space... and as they say... feel the fear... and do it anyway... is there anything better than dreams coming true :))

  5. Oh how I wish I could join! I have the weekend free of responsibility...but then there is that pesky flight to Australia. I will look at your art (which I am going to hang over my desk) and smile. Thanks again.

  6. What lucky students they will be that enter your creative space. I'm sure you will enjoy it as much as them!

  7. Can't wait to join in ( : your space looks awesome.
    and totally agree with ms L. that you are on the right track.
    I have butterflies for you too.
