Santa Fe Spell

Aspen leaf webTraveling with intentions for healing and inspiration, my journey has begun in spiritual wonderland: Santa Fe, New Mexico. The flow has been completely sweet, with joyous friends and fun, joined by peaceful interludes of nature’s soul food.  Finding myself in a multi-million dollar house-sit, with every luxury a girl could want, has been icing on the luscious cake. I have been wishing for dogs in my life and there are FIVE of them here!

Because I need to continue my income streams, and because I just cannot stop being creative, I am painting. I started a new series of graphic colorful backgrounds in oils before I left town, to make sure they would be dry enough to travel with, and am now adding abstract florals to the patterns.

Yesterday, I began the first floral with a cannabis bud, because exquisite artful nature must be recognized and exalted despite the past political stigmas of government repression. I painted in a grove of Aspen trees. At one point I stopped and looked around as the wind blew their shimmering leaves, and the stream next to me gushed down the mountain side. My tears joined the flow in reverence to the overwhelming majesty.

Life is delicious.

Oil Paintings of Yabette: Healing through Art

Although I have painted professionally on furniture for ten years, my heart had a strong desire to work with canvas and oils. I closed my retail shop to allow for a proper focus of time and space and dedicated myself to this exploration with fervor. I painted with the spiritual intentions of infusing the images with healing qualities for all who view the work. Any Feng Shui enthusiast will tell you that adding the energy of serenity or joy through art to an atmosphere is holistically beneficial.

For next week’s Infinite Union Show, I am including the works that explore the connections with Earth and the great “All That Is”.

While concentrating on healing energies, I also focused on the idea that we are all connected, and the universe is more vast than we can imagine. I looked into the deepest seas for creatures of which our scientists are continuously studying.
