my journey

My GardenI’d like to share a little bit about myself and the ongoing evolution of “Meadow Bug Studio”, my art, and myself…..

For some of you, this may be the first time our paths have crossed.  For others we may have had the wonderful opportunity to share a creative moment or two together.  Some of you may be dear friends who are stopping by to visit.  Whatever the case may be, I’d like to extend a GREAT BIG WELCOME!

This particular post is about My Journey.  Usually, I am not one to share in such a public way; especially in such a “social media” kinda way.  But I am giving myself permission to share with you in this “public” way, BECAUSE I truly believe I am not the only person on this great big planet that may be feeling the same way I am feeling right now.  I know this may seem a little bit cryptic right now, but hang in there with me a bit longer.

I am a firm believer in “CREATIVITY”!  I believe “CREATIVITY” is the purest medicine for the soul!


Over the past 8 or 9 years I have been on a path that has taken me away from my art and my passion.  I know this can be a natural part of life at times.  We can find ourselves on a path that was not on the map.  It’s not where we had planned go or even wanted to go! Or maybe it was, but something went a little a little bit side-ways.  I also know this can make us feel lost, stuck, unhappy, walking in circles.  But sometimes all we need is a little nudge (or 2×4 up aside our head) to get us moving in the right direction.  

Honestly, I barely remember 2018! There have been challenges this past year that have absolutely drained my energy; I am depleted!   I find myself longing for that very special, intoxicating force, that I feel deep down in my very soul that comes from creating!  Remember, earlier I said that “CREATIVITY” is medicine for the soul?

My soul is dry, and it is time to self medicate!Sunshine on a stem

So as I embark on this new journey of mine; to reinvent myself and my art. to experience fearless creativity.  I thought I would invite you to join me.

It’s time to dive back in fearlessly!  To find my passion again and what feeds my soul creatively; vibrant colors, lavish textures, new mediums, experimenting fearlessly, loving, laughing, crying, & drinking a little wine with my friends!

So the journey begins today, February 6, 2019!  I invite you to join me!   

Feel free to share your thoughts!  I’d love to hear from you.

Enjoy the journey!

Best wishes,
Cyndi Mahlstadt
