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.

The Satori Stretch

y stretch
oh yeah, that’s me all happy with my headphones in the sun.

Yes! Victory is mine! At this very moment, I uploaded a completed image and story painted and written by yours truly. It was edited by writer, Storm Arcana, and read aloud by the talented judy-b!

There are many characters of Jubilieu with stories to finish, but the satisfaction of seeing the first one complete from imagination to entertainment reality is quite satisfying.

They will all be available to hear with a link to online recordings on Sunday for our Jubilieu Artist Reception Event this coming June 22 at Sweet Inspiration.

And even better, come to the reception and hear judy-b read them aloud!

Until then, you can get a preview here.
