It’s almost time! This will be your inspiration as we paint our very own Goddess Icons this weekend, June 21-22nd at Glitter Gypsy Studio in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii. I’ll be leading you step-by-step through the process, so don’t worry, even if you feel that you can’t even paint a stick figure–seriously. All you need is a desire in your heart & soul to EXPRESS YOURSELF…to find yourself…to reclaim YOURSELF. If you’re feeling a tug or stirring inside, that’s your soul trying to get your attention, trying to get you to wake up & create the life you really desire. Signing up is easy. Just click on the “Events & Adventures” tab & you’re in! Sending you much love, beauty & aloha, Susan Conrad Risse, aka *The Glitter Gypsy*

Aloha Friends and Fellow Goddesses!

Looking for an adventure? Tired of the same-ol’-same-ol’? Feeling like you’ve lost your spark? Needing a kick-start to access your divine goddess energy and creativity?

Then I’ve got just the right medicine for you! You are cordially invited to “The Goddess Alchemy Painting Retreat,” a very exciting and empowering painting weekend. It’s happening here at Glitter Gypsy Studio, in gorgeous Honolulu, Hawaii.

Over this momentous weekend together, we’ll journey into the very depths of your soul’s innate wisdom, allowing you to discover and then create your own Goddess Icon.


You’ll be welcomed into a serene and peaceful environment, promoting sharing, ritual and a community atmosphere. No painting experience is required, just a desire in your heart to connect with your Divine Feminine Self through creativity.


Throughout this inspirational experience, using Intentional Creativity, you won’t have to worry about a thing. I’ll be guiding you through a simple step-by-step process. As your journey progresses, you’ll become enlightened, allowing your insight to guide you in creating your own “Goddess Icon.” When you leave with ‘Her,’ you’ll continue to feel the essence of the energy and intention that you’ve put into Her & she will continue to bless and inform you.

I welcome this opportunity to get to know you better and would absolutely LOVE to inspire and create with you!

A light lunch, healthy snacks & beverages are included. You’re also welcome to bring something for our snack bar, if you’d like, but don’t feel obligated.

Hi everybody! It’s been a very busy & adventurous year & I must admit– I’ve been very absent here! What I’ve found is that it’s much easier to follow me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/SusanConradRisse ~ OR ~ on my Artist Page at http://www.facebook.com/GlitterGypsy. I’m also on Twitter @SusanRisse, LinkedIn( Glitter Gypsy Risse) & am now getting started over on Instagram at glittergypsies. You can also check out my “OMG’s” (One Minute of Glitter) on my YouTube channel gypsyinparadise. I’m posting on Facebook nearly every day, so I really do hope that you will come on over to one or better yet (for me, anyway) ALL of these windows of my world & “friend, follow or like” me! I SO appreciate your following me here & really hope that I’ll see you over there now too! I’m also COMPLETELY REVAMPING my website (this one) http://www.glittergypsy.com to a beautiful, updated visual feast that will include all of my new artwork, offerings AND an on-line store, where you’ll be able to view & purchase my original art, giclees, prints, jewelry & more all in one place! There will also be workshops & other class offerings (on-line & in-person) & other projects that I’ve been working on all year for your perusal.  I’m super-excited to be working on this & can’t wait to open it! It is, however, a huge undertaking, so I’m not exactly sure when I’ll be launching it, but I’ll announce it here, as well as over on my other social media sites. Again, thank you so much for following me here. I’m not going anywhere, but I just wanted to offer you some additional options as to where you can follow me. I really hope that you will.

I’d like to leave you with a quote from Rumi, as well as my latest painting, which is still drying on the easel.

“What you seek is seeking you.” Rumi

She Creates Her Own Sweet Reality

1.) A place or object hallowed from its history or associations; as a shrine of art.

2.) A case, box or receptacle, especially one in which one deposits sacred relics.
