Words from Pema Chödrön. ❤️
Pages from my latest sketchbook! Enjoy. You can view all of these as still images over on my Instagram account @lisacongdon (go to the #lcongdonsketchbook hashtag!) In case you are interested, this is a Moleskine brand 29x21 inch watercolour book! Most pages are painted in gouache.
My latest book, A Glorious Freedom: Older Women Leading Extraordinary Lives, is released today into the world! Today on the blog: an excerpt about my motivation and inspiration for making the book, along with links to purchase (there are signed copies in my shop!) and more information on my book tour. Thank you for continuing to support my work!

Happy Valentines Day, friends!

Southern California friends! I'm having a big solo show in your vicinity that opens March 8, and I hope to see you there! I'm also giving a public lecture on March 13. All the info on both these events, plus maps, etc, on the blog today!

I'm super excited to announce my upcoming solo show (my first major solo show since 2011) at Fullerton College Art Gallery, in conjunction with my residency

Thank you Portland Monthly!

For artist and author Lisa Congdon, aging means gaining value.

Happy New Year, friends!

This is most definitely the SILLIEST video of me ever made - and it’s announcing my very next class with Creativebug, a 31 Day Pattern Challenge, which starts January 1st! If you’re not already a Creativebug subscriber, it’s an online learning platform that is incredibly affordable (at less than $5 a month). Subscribers can take all my classes (I’ve got something like 25 on the platform). Follow the link below to my blog where you can learn more about the class and register to begin January 1!

The December Print of the Month is here! This month, I'm doing an open edition of this 11x14 inch print to raise money for my friend Betsy, who was just diagnosed with cancer, late stage metastatic carcinoma. I first met Betsy 30 years ago when she was diagnosed with cancer for the first time when she was 20. Betsy is the older sister to Katie, one of my dearest friends since college. Betsy is now 51, and a single mother to 7 year old Lena, who she adopted when Lena was a baby. Betsy has survived cancer twice already (the last time eight years ago), and we are doing whatever we can to help her fight to survive a third time. All proceeds from the sale of this print through the end of January will help with Betsy's uncovered medical expenses.…/57…/i-got-you-art-print-lisa-congdon…
