**Please note our *DATE CHANGE only.* It’s come to our attention that our *ORIGINAL DATE* of 1/16/16 is on the MLK Holiday long weekend, so we’ve changed the Event to 1/30/16. If you’re feeling anything like we are (maybe a bit overwhelmed, over-scheduled, or just plain exhausted after all of the Holiday Festivities, you may find this to be a welcome change!)

As you ease into this threshold time of a brand new year ahead, we invite you to take some time to dream, meditate, spend time in nature or just begin browsing through magazines, old calendars, maps & books. When you feel an intuitive connection to an image, word or phrase, just tear it out & begin your “Vision Board Folder.” Don’t worry about ‘why’ you’re drawn to something, just trust that there’s a reason for it. Stay out of your head & instead, remain in an open & curious heart space. As we begin to assemble our Vision Boards on the day of the event, connections will begin to form & puzzle pieces will perhaps(??) begin to make sense. This process is about tuning inwards & listening to your soul’s longings & desires. If you don’t have time to do this ahead of the workshop, that’s fine too.

So, yes, please join us at Glitter Gypsy Studio for this magical Vision Board workshop! Just show up; we’ll take care of the rest. You’ll begin your day being nourished & nurtured by enjoying a gourmet, healthy & scrumptious feast (vegetarian, vegan, gluten & dairy-free options available.) Think delicious salads, fresh herbs, local tropical fruits & fresh seafood, if desired–yum! We’ll then go into a women’s visioning circle to get grounded & connected. Next, the creation of YOUR vision board! No art experience necessary & all materials & instructions provided. Find your “spot” to work- on our ocean-view & Koko Head facing lanais, in the courtyard around the swimming pool, on a cozy chair or cushion, wherever you feel comfortable! Do your own thing, or feel free to ask for guidance. As a special BONUS TREAT, singer/songwriter LUCIE LYNCH will be inspiring us with her angelic voice & beautiful songs! Delicious & nutritious chocolate shakes will be served when you need a little boost mid-afternoon–mmmm… At 4:00, we’ll gather for our closing circle & sharing–breakthroughs, insights, discoveries.

Your hosts: Susan Conrad Risse, Visionary Artist, Teacher & Guide. Susan’s artistic background includes studying, training & coaching with Shiloh Sophia McCloud (founder & CEO of http://www.cosmiccowgirls.com & creator of the 13 step Color of Woman Painting Process & Intentional Creativity.)

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*

Gypsy Night MarketIMG_2280

Come join me this Friday evening, December 6th, from 5:30-10-00p.m. at Honolulu’s “First Friday Art Event & Night Market.” I’ll be in the “Chinatown Courtyard,” located street level below the “Chinatown Artist Lofts” at 1126 Smith Street. Finish your Christmas shopping in one place! My current inventory of paintings, art prints, jewelry & more will be on sale for this one night event. I’ll also be having a drawing for a door prize. Just stop by & drop your business card or name & email in the box & I’ll let you know if you’ve won. You needn’t be present at the time of the drawing to win. We’ll also have live music, food & a *Secret Beer Garden* there. What’s not to like? For your information, I also accept the “ID Card” (Hawaii Isle Discount Card,) which will save you an additional 20% off all purchases! Not sure what to buy someone for Christmas or Hanukkah? Buy them a gift certificate for merchandise or one of my art workshops, parties or private lessons!

**Note: It’s a little tricky to find because it’s a courtyard, located between Smith and Maunakea Streets, with an entrance off either street. It lies with the square block between these two streets & N. Hotel Street & N. Pauahi St. (It’s not well marked, so if you can get within this square block, just poke around or ask where the Chinatown Artists lofts are.) One of the entrances is located catty-corner from the Maunakea Marketplace on Maunakea St. Whew! Trust me- that’s the hardest part, the rest will be fun! See you Friday! Thanks!

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

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

3.) Ritual Altar: An altar that contains objects placed for specific intent which have deliberate symbolism. An altar created thoughtfully enhances the ritual’s meaning for the individual or group.

Hi, everyone! I just wanted to take a moment & share my painting, “Earth Angel” with you on this most sacred of days, “Earth Day.” When I look at her and the way in which she is holding the Earth as tenderly & lovingly as a newborn baby in her arms, I am deeply reminded of the importance of treating our “home” with that level of intense care. Our planet & all of it’s abundant resources provide endlessly all that we need, more than we need, really. Yet we seem to be facing one crisis after another, much caused by our general lack of appreciation & abuse of what is more than enough. Let’s all take just a moment today to think of one way that we could tread just a tad more lightly on this Sacred Ground, and then try to carry that forward into our week, year, perhaps even our lifetime. Maybe just recycling a little more, or eating a little more organic food, or re-using, recycling, up-cycling or donating items, rather than just throwing them away. There really is no “away,” is there, because it all stays right here with us. It just gets moved to another place.

Thanks, as always for stopping by & for reading this & supporting me.

***”Earth Angel,” acrylic on canvas, original 16″x20″ painting is available for purchase, as well as prints, cards & giclees. This painting is not yet up on my fineartamerica.com store (Under Artist Susan Risse,)but there may be others there you might like. If you’re interested in purchasing “Earth Angel” just leave an inquiry below. Prices are comparable to that you will see on my other pieces in my fineartamerica.com store (Susan Risse)

Aloha nui loa!
