Be Your Finest Art

Dorsey McHugh and Joanne Miller are artists and writers. Together we have written a book BE YOUR FINEST ART released June, 2014.  This group will involve and target anyone who feels they have a creative bent and we believe everyone does. Sometimes that nature is long buried or thought to be frivolous and not to be taken seriously.  We are here to prove otherwise. We want your input as we dialog about the importance of tapping regularly into your right-brain.  We promise it will enhance your well-being on many levels.

Our Book Is HERE!

After a long wait while our book Be Your Finest Art was being printed in China, our shipment finally arrived last week.  During our Wednesday morning art class we heard a big truck lumbering up the lane with our load of books. To say we were excited would be a gross understatement! We all gathered outside and took photos and had a grand celebration. If you are local (or not far away) perhaps you can join us at our first big book signing celebration at Two Old Hippies in the Gulch in Nashville.  It is June 24th from 6-7:30 PM and Dan Miller will be interviewing us.  Light refreshments will be served. Hope you can join us!

I so desperately need to make a change in my life but I don't know where to start.  Creativity has always been a part of my life but can you be too creative?  By that I mean attempting too many different forms of art.  Painting, drawing, needlework,…Continue

Just finished a week of the Create a Beauty Journal from the workbook. Great experiment, had fun with it and will be doing it again! http://instagram.com/martadgoertzen/

September 28 - October 4th. Not all the pics turned out the way I wanted but that is okay, it kept me alert while outside each morning and made me think more about how I was describing what I captured on my camera. The descriptions were half the fun!
