I discovered the world of Contemporary Mixed-Media art a few years ago, and I haven't looked back! It gives me a way to be creative and express myself. Exciting changes are taking place here at Mixed Grill Favorites. I'm expanding into a podcast! Each week, I will interview a different creative person, in hopes of learning more about their art, their processes, and their creative lifestyle.

Gelatin Prints

I had some people ask for photos of some of the prints I pulled off myhomemade permanent gelatin plate. I am fighting a bit of a cold, so I’ll keep this short– but I did want to share. These were originally 11″ x 14″, but they have been trimmed down to 4.75″ x 8.25″ to…

A Glorious Experiment!

I haven’t written here in a long time, I know. Since my life has rearranged itself, there just isn’t much left for me to say about art, or even life right now. I do most of my blogging on my coaching blog these days, but I just did the most incredible thing that I’m dying…

Making Your Creative Mark — A Book Review

I recently received a review copy of Eric Maisel’s new book Making Your Creative Mark: Nine Keys to Achieving Your Artistic Goals and I wanted to share with my creative friends. Eric agreed to answer a few questions for me, so be sure to check out his mini-interview at the end of this post. (I…

RIP Frankie

As some of you already know, a few weeks ago John and I made the very difficult decision to say good-bye to one of our beloved kitties, Frankie. That decision is never an easy one for anyone to make, but for those of us who are “pet people,” the decision is nothing less than emotionally…

Progress …

Several days ago, I posted that I was working on getting my studio straightened up so that I can use it for coaching office space. I am pleased to say that it is coming along nicely! In fact, I can finally see the surface of my desk! It had gotten cluttered enough that I didn’t…

More Than a Little Bummed

Yesterday was a delightful day. John and I got up early enough to go have breakfast at one of our local hangouts. I always enjoy eating out, but I particularly enjoy breakfast out. It feels like such a luxury. When I was a child growing up, we occasionally went out to dinner, but the only…

So Many Books … So Little Time

Like many readers I know, I’ve usually got several books going at a time. I don’t read a lot of fiction these days, so I don’t have trouble keeping the plot points and characters in the right place (although I have had that happen!). Currently on my nightstand: Man’s Search For Meaning, by Viktor E….

On Spiritual Experiences

At my coach’s suggestion, I just started reading  Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul: How to Create a New You by Deepak Chopra. I’m actually not a big Chopra fan (not that there’s anything wrong with him), so I was surprised that on page three, still in the introduction, I had to stop and capture…

More Money Thoughts

Yesterday, I typed up a quick post on money, simply because that’s what was on my mind and I needed a blog topic. Today, I’ll continue that trend, because it’s still on my mind. I know my money stories don’t serve me, but I’m not sure how to tell new money stories. Actually, I know…

Thoughts on Money

I’ve come to realize that I have a problem with money. I’m not talking about making a budget or saving money (although neither of those are my strong suits), but rather my relationship with money. It seems that I have “money stories” that don’t serve me. I grew up in a home where money seemed…
