In my meditation  and prayer practice, I often send love and light to the creatures of Earth’s oceans. I saw the synchronicity for me to be contacted about this event. I was honored to be asked to donate Beluga towards the Save Lolita Fundraising Event in Chicago this May.

This is Lolita, who has been in Miami Seaquarium for 43 years.

Lolita is a real whale at a water park in Florida who has been held captive for 40 years and has the best chance of being moved out of her inhumane residence back to the wild with her pod, where she belongs. Get the full story of Lolita here. If you have not seen the Blackfish movie, please do so to further educate yourself on this topic.

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.

While the original is gone, you can still get this as a print on stretched canvas in 3 sizes.

This size is $100, while  larger options are available as well.

When seahorses find a mate, they wrap their tails around each other so the tide doesn’t drift them apart.

They have that one mate for the rest of their lives.

May we all find Sea Horse love.

Affordable Alchemy for All

“Art is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge

to all the generations of the world.” — Leonardo Da Vinci

I have been browsing Airbnb lately as I plan a short trip to NYC this summer. It was interesting to run across a listing in which the feedback complaints were about the lack of art. People are recognizing more and more how necessary art is to creating an inspiring environment. The highest priced places were the most colorful, with an artful presentation that brings a relaxed joy to the eyes.

With this in mind, I have been looking for ways to offer more affordable options of my own art, yet retaining a quality and presentation that is tasteful and lasting. So after researching and testing, I have found the solution with high quality art prints on stretched canvas. These are available in my shop listed by size and shape. For example, this “Joie de Vivre” Oil 48×60″ original is available for $3000. But you can get a high quality canvas print version ready-to-hang and delivered to your door in a 30×40″ size for $300 plus shipping. Or get the small version for your bath at an easy $100.
