What happens to artists when their personal life turns their lives up side down? I truly believe that everything happens for a reason.
For the last year and a half or more, I have been making the needed changes in my art career.
When someone you love has physical problems and can not help physically anymore, I am speaking of my husband, it was time to move back to Calif. to be closer to our two daughters.
I am ok with the move, but it has taken some time for me to find myself again. I had been so used to being the metal artist and was not sure what to do now. I am not going to give up! We each have special gifts to give to the world. Being creative and following the creative process is a necessary adventure in the world.
So, I have always been interested in painting on silk. Taking baby steps right now! I have started to create silk scarves and absolutely LOVE painting on silk. I can not control it much and that is the perfect way I like to work. It is like Christmas! The artwork never comes out quite like you envision it but it is perfect! Every piece of art seems to have its own mind.
With this work, I still employ the same with putting healing energy into the artwork. My mother, who passed at 92 years, was a great inspiration to me. She used to iron all our clothes and put love and protection energy into everything she ironed. So I am doing the same thing but adding in Reiki Energy, love, peace, joy, abundance and protection for everyone who wears my silk artworks or has them in their homes. Feels good to be back to being both the artist and the energy healer and continuing my Peace Prevails Project.
New adventure: in the past I relied on galleries to sell my artwork through. Just started a facebook shop and starting to sell my artwork. Take a look and watch my progression. I have plans for creating wall hangings, framed artwork, clothing and more! Take a look here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/catherinefosterart/shop/
I am feeling very humbled. So many people have been helpful in me starting up my new art career. It is not easy to ask for help, but I am finding out that more and more artists are needing to ask for help to keep their creative process moving ahead.

No donation is too small; I am totally rebuilding my studio since i gave away and sold most of what I had accumulated over 25 years in Washington. Do you believe that helping to bring conscious awareness to the world to practice being the peace we desire in the world is important? Join me in the Peace Prevails Project. Thank you ahead for everyone who believes in me and the artwork I am creating in the world. Your donations fill my heart and give me hope. Onwards!
