SHOP updates:

Due to some financial difficulties in Dec and Jan, the shop is looking to open in March 2017 rather than next month. Hopefully there won’t be any more delays, and as always you can message/email me about any products you’d like. I’m always interested in suggestions, and I will do custom orders (i.e. Tapestries) if requested.

Weekly Update 12/9/2016

Not much to say about the shop updates this week. I’ve been working on preparing for my art show at St. Andrew’s Hall in Detroit, MI coming up this Tuesday (12/13), and I just sent off “The Awakening of Self” to San Diego where it will be on display in North Park for the ABK Top Artists’ Metaphysical Art show. More detailed event info for both shows below.

Today I am checking up on live painting applications for the spring/summer/fall festival season and tying up loose ends before the shows. On a different note, I am working on a speech on how to manifest your goals through optimism that I will be giving at my brother’s Jr. Optimists high school club. Depending on how it goes, I may refine it and see if I can present it as a workshop in the future.

~~ABK Top Artists: Metaphysical Art Show~~

ABK is celebrating its 2nd year anniversary with a Metaphysical Art show that opens Wednesday, December 14 at the Mike Hess Brewery in North Park, San Diego, CA. There’s no cover charge, and many of the artists will be there. Unfortunately, I cannot make it, but my piece “The Awakening of Self” will be showing there from 12/14-1/2/. I’m offering gratitude packs to the first 5 people that take a picture with my painting at the opening which will include an 8×10″ print of AoS, some stickers and a code for 10% off their first purchase when my store re-opens! Event info can be found here ——-> Metaphysical Art

2016 goals, works, ideas and such..

My goal for 2016 is to complete at least 1 piece of visionary artwork each month. For January’s project I am focusing on finishing this piece (working title: “The Water Spirit I see in Meditation”), which is a representation of a spirit I often see in my meditations. She exudes a very serene, aquatic sense of wholeness and acceptance, and I am working to manifest her energy onto canvas so that others may feel her comforting presence 💜

  
Thank you for reading and supporting my work! Love and Light to you all 🕉
