How was your summer? Mine has been busy, and full of creative adventures! It began in June with the Champagne Art Salon that Lucie Lynch & I co-created, with the theme of “The Voice” emerging. Lucie is a sublime international singer & songwriter that I feel so fortunate to not only to call my friend, but a colleague as well. You’ve just got to check her out on Facebook or at http://www.lucieslighthouse.com. You’re going to love her & her mesmerizing voice & song writing.

So the evening began with an Open Studio Art Salon, mingling & sharing my art with the beautiful group of people that joined us. The champagne was flowing, delicious food was partaken & we all enjoyed the hypnotic views of Koko Head & the endless blue of the Pacific Ocean. What a treat it was! At 7:00pm, we gathered in our living room for an incredible living room concert with Lucie. I unveiled my latest painting, “She Activates Her Voice” & shared my story of her creation with everyone. I explained how this painting literally manifested itself by my using a method known as “Intentional Creativity,” as taught to me by artist & mentor, Shiloh Sophia McCloud. This is a process in which one sets a particular INTENTION for the painting and then intuitively ALLOWS the painting to come into form. A give & take relationship develops between the painting & the artist. Lucie then began the concert by telling us her story about activating her own voice & continued to sing & tell us many more stories through her beautiful music.

I am so grateful to everyone who attended, supported & had fun with us! I am humbly honored to have shared the stage with Lucie. I would also like to thank Leo & Marika Hura of LeoVidPro for filming the event. You can view the synopsis of the evening on their YouTube channel. And a huge shout out to my wonderful husband for helping out in whatever was needed.

Angels In My Studio

Are you an artist or creative person?

Do you love angels?

Would you love to connect more deeply with your angels and guides in your everyday life as well as in your creative practice?

Are you interested in learning techniques to incorporate the energies and forms of angels and spirits into your artwork?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions you are in the right place. Please consider joining us for Angels In My Studio — a 5-month long online course dedicated to both mixed-media art and angelic connections.

Angels In My Studio begins on May 1st 2012. This course is designed to allow beginner and seasoned artists alike to connect more deeply with the angelic realm through their creative practice.

CLICK HERE to register and pay in full – a one time investment of $111

~~~~~

When you join us for Angels In My Studio you’ll have the experience of:

  • connecting energetically to the angelic realm, as well as your personal guides and angels through monthly angelic attunements and activations from Michael Golzmane, a powerful angelic channel and psychic healer with clients throughout the world
  • receiving guidance and support from your higher self, guides, and angels through engaging in written exercises and guided meditations facilitated by Sheri Ann Ponzi
  • developing strategies to bring this powerful connection into your creative practice more consciously
  • being in community with other creatively-minded folks who share your love of angels 

As you can see, Angels In My Studio is much more than “just” a course in art technique (though it certainly *is* that). This course is intended for those that are truly open to deepening their connection with the unseen.

Each in-depth video lesson will provide you with both the tools for creating a variety of mixed-media art from a place of connection to the intuitive realm and grounded technical skills in depicting angels, guides, and spirit. Over the course of the 5-months we spend together you will deepen your skills and abilities in allowing your artwork to unfold from a place of conscious connection to spirit.

“Angels In My Studio” lessons will be delivered right on this site each month through embedded and downloadable video, audio, and written word. The first lesson will be released on May 1st. You will be able to download and keep all of the materials forever — and the community forums will stay open through December 31, 2012. So you can take your time and enjoy the journey.

Yeah! I’ll be back at the “Mendonca Building Courtyard”-1126 Smith St. Honolulu 96817,(Chinatown)for the 1st Friday Art Event again next month, 3/2/12 from 5-10pm. The Courtyard is located off Maunakea AND Smith St. (2 entrances), near Hotel St. Look carefully, as it’s an INTERIOR Courtyard, & easy to miss unless you look in. There are also loft galleries & a Vintage Shop upstairs, so look for those signs,too. In addition, Mark’s Garage will be hosting a fun “Biergarten,” including live music, food & of course, BEER at the end, IN the courtyard area. I’ll be there again with my art, prints, jewelry & more. I will be having another give-away drawing, so be sure to stop by & drop your business card in my box & I’ll let you know if you’ve won. February’s winner was Sarah Jo from San Francisco! Congratulations, Sarah!!! Really hope to see you there!

Hi, everybody, & thanks for checking in on me! Last Friday night (1st Friday Art Event in Honolulu’s Chinatown District) was just fantastic! I’ve posted a couple of photos of my “booth” which was in “Chinatown Courtyard,” off Maunakea St. It’s a lovely courtyard setting, with beautiful exposed brick walls to hang my paintings, with room for a table for jewelry & prints. I met so many wonderful people there & got giddy in the creative environment. Many people stopped to look, compliment or purchase my wares. It was an artsy crowd and we had live flamenco music playing nearby.

I definitely plan to be there again, as it was a huge success & a really fun venue! I’ll keep you posted…

Sign up for my newsletter to remain “in the loop.” You’ll receive a free art gift from me, as well as remain on top of my events.

Aloha……
