Exciting News! (at least for me)

I'm so excited to be getting a new website soon! It will be easier to shop, and there will be some groovy new products to choose from. Also, I will be having a few give aways in the very near future. It would be awesome if you added me as a friend on facebook (I just got my account up again) so I can keep you updated as things move forward...:) my badge is over there on the sidebar.

Woman's World...

"Another world is not only possible, she is on her way! On a quiet day, if you listen carefully, you can hear her breathing."
--Arundhati Roy

The Sacred Feminine...probably not a topic I should be tackling at 11:30 pm. Especially because I'm too lazy to really do it justice. All I know is I want to help women find their power. This doesn't mean I don't want men to find their power. I just think it's time we tapped into the energy that is feminine. Joseph Campbell stuff you might say.

Happy Birthday Natalie Wood

I keep editing, and re-editing this post. My thoughts are, "hope I don't offend anyone by saying 'Happy Birthday' to someone who's deceased." Specifically I don't want to offend any of her kin who may still grieve on her birthday. Though she's no longer with us, I want to acknowledge personally how inspired I've always been by the lovely and talented Natalie Wood.
I'm currently reading a biography of Ms. Wood, and interestingly enough today is her birthday. It's a cosmic thing dont'cha know...and I'm all about the cosmic stuff.

She was a woman whose face was utterly flawless, I really could just look at her face all day long! And there are plenty of photos to choose from.

According to her biography, she would never go out without her make up. Her need to please and be viewed as the perfect Hollywood star must have been wearing.

"I didn't know who the hell I was. I was whoever they wanted me to be."
Natalie Wood

I think I relate to that statement, though not to the degree that she experienced it. In other words, my journey has been about discovery as well. Who the heck am I? What am I about? How to be authentic? Where is my tribe?

Not being a true "writer" myself, I struggle to express my own fascination with this woman. She was such a little pixie, really. Acting aside, she had a gift of "being" that was cut short. I'm sorry for the loss.

Thank you...

I have been extremely remiss in thanking some of the bloggers who have generously posted about my art on their blog. I'm lazy and irresponsible when it comes to saying "thank you." By the way, it REALLY helps monetarily when someone blogs about me. It gets people clicking on my website, and hopefully buying some of my work.

Mostly, I'm just not technically savvy enough to link to their blogs, etc. Also, I feel awkward, like I'm bragging. I know I'm strange. Anyhow, I'm going to give it a try right now...(tried and failed)therefore, I will put links to their sites on my sidebar to the right...I would so appreciate learning how to do this!

First, thank you so much to Susan Ellison at Bluesprings Home. She has been a long time supporter of my art. I owe her big time! She has a stunningly beautiful store in Costa Mesa, Ca full of unique items which she has artfully displayed. Please visit her site, and if you're local, drop by her store!

Blue Garden

I've been totally absorbed and obsessed with Polyvore!!! It's a really cool way of demonstrating the sizes of my paintings in relation to other pieces of furniture...
