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.

What an amazing event at the Kahala Resort in Honolulu, HI that I attended on Saturday. Professors Bliss Lau (Designer) & Jasmine Takanikos (Branding Strategist)from Parsons The New School of Design in NYC held a Master Class & Networking Workshop full of incredible information for creative entrepreneurs. Such a rare chance to learn from such successful leaders in their respective fields.I’m always eager to learn new information & new ways approaching business.

Happy MLK Holiday, everyone! On the wings of the courageous Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I, too, would like to say: “I have a dream…” Do you have a dream?? I’ll bet you do. Several years ago, while living in a new city (suburb, really) with my husband and two preschool children, a seed was planted in me. I had no family or friends in this new place, so I spent a lot of time by myself or in the company of the children. I was no longer working as an International Flight Attendant, as I had done for many years. Instead I had chosen, with the support of my husband, to stay home and raise the kids. Firstly, I must say, I’m really happy with that choice. But some of those days, as I’m sure many stay-at-home parents will agree with me on, were extremely challenging. But, gradually, things began to change. I believe that every cloud does, indeed, have a silver lining. And often, behind that cloud, waiting in that silver lining, is an angel. Now, my angels come in many forms.  Sometimes, they appear in dreams or thoughts; sometimes in image, word or prayer. But, I must say that, at least for me, my favorite angels appear in human form. I can cite a number of examples, but I’m certain that if you think about it for a moment, you will know exactly what I’m talking about. Which brings me to my point. I believe in DREAMS, just as Dr. Martin Luther King did. And, I believe in ANGELS. And this is why I am so excited to announce, that I will be teaching in an on-line course, beginning in May, called “ANGELS IN MY STUDIO,” led by Sheri Ann Ponzi! We will be joined by a number of other amazing artists & teachers, as well. So, you see, I believe in myself & my dreams, I believe in the messages received from angels & I believe in YOU! Just look at me for an example. I am now a working artist, & fulfilling yet another dream: teaching an on-line spiritual & creative workshop with an incredible group of artists & teachers. Believe me, if I can do it, you can do it! Sign in for my newsletter to receive all of the latest information on the course right here, up on the right, in the box that days “SIGN ME UP!” (That’s just for my newsletter. Sign-ups for the course will begin in March.) “ANGELS IN MY STUDIO” course description can be found at: http://www.paintingherselfintobeing.com ***P.S.***DON’T FORGET TO COME DOWN TO THE GYPSY NIGHT MARKET IN CHINATOWN FOR FEBRUARY’S FIRST FRIDAY ART EVENT ON 2/3/12 5-10 PM
