Spread 255 – Payne’s Gray February 26, 2015

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

255-Payne's Gray

Working working working on the pages of my animal anatomy book, the one I got from my good, good to me friend. Altering them, to almost no recognition. Witnessing once again my sweet and comforting uncertainties, the ones that make me, me. In utter love with Payne’s Gray. In the middle of black and blue, where mystery resides. In excitement to see what will decide to stay after the constant movement from veiling to unveiling. Claiming advancement. Going back to the knowing that all falls into place in the end, since the beginning of time. All sorts of things end up here, including a piece of very worn out tarp found by the river that is connected to the ocean by the coast of Oregon. Payne’s Gray from the tube creating background to receive the miraculously matching Payne’s Gray that is engrained in the tarp. It’s really not Payne’s gray any more. It’s mine now.

253-Found in Assertion

I’ve been living the illusion of being free and at the same time with the knowing that I wasn’t at all. Next week I’ll turn 56 and can say, ever so delicately, that I am free, that I feel it in my body, and that I feel it not being an illusion. I feel like I earned every line in my skin. I feel all my flaws huddling, rushing to tell a truer story about who I’ve been and where I am going. I am not ashamed of my self.

My 2015 Schedule December 19, 2014

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Dear true Art-Journalers,

This year I am looking to deepen
the practice of art journaling,
to find wholeness,
to find me: the individual,
you: community,
and place: man-made and not.
I am looking to deepen
my understanding
of how all is interconnected
in beautiful and mysterious ways.
Will you join me
sometimes this year?
00--2015 Schedule
More information will be available soon here on my blog at Workshops and Retreats and always available by emailing me at: orlyavineri@gmail.com

IN MY BONES: A visual journal – The Book – Giveaway November 23, 2014

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Givaway picI just returned from San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico, where I had the most luxuriant time teaching, learning, being and engaging in the most profound experiences humankind has to offer. Seriously. Until I digest the abundance of it all and be able to share some of it with you, I’d like to offer you one of these little pink printed journals.

That’s my new book IN MY BONES: A visual journal. Behind all my journaling, teaching, and book making, is my deepest wish to share my gaping need to speak with whoever wants to listen about this incredible form of expression which I believe brings about intense changes, miracles of sorts, both personal and most certainly far-reaching.

Some have gotten the opportunity to peruse the pages of the book and find something luring there for themselves. This is a chance for anyone, whether you have it or not to receive a copy from my stash I have at home. To get that chance please share with us a one-liner describing what Visual-Journaling does for you, or if you have a copy already please share your thoughts about it.

The winner of the Giveaway will be announced a week from today on Sunday, November 30, at 12PM.

-Support me best by ordering it through my Createspace eStore

-Through my blog

-Much less supportive (-: nevertheless available at Amazon

-Pick up a copy at one of my workshops in Southern California

Until then, please find new ways to create, recreate, be here, and with us.
