I am thrilled to have my new mini Mandala Paintings and cards available at Longman’s Art, Books and Craft store in Estepona.
A week back from the most amazing time in Morocco with Amy Butler and April Meeker and a group of wonderful creative souls.
Just one more week to go! I am SO EXCITED to be embarking on this AMAZING art adventure with Amy Butler and April Meeker – WOOHOO!
Spending a month in Bali this past August was a gift of time to myself. I was to spend a whole month relaxing, exploring, slowing down and most importantly painting and creating with a group of beautiful women on the Sacred marks retreat with my wonderful friend Tracy Verdugo.
I wanted to go into this new piece of artwork with a focus on painting one of the statues that inspired me near where we were staying.
On the Sunday after our first session of “Sacred Marks”, we were enjoying our wonderful breakfast by the pool and saying our last goodbyes. All of a sudden, we heard the loud noises of cars, motorcycles and people cheering as they passed our entrance way along the road. You could see big structures moving along and giant flags waving down the road.
It was so beautiful today, you just couldn’t write it into being. There was a breeze blowing it’s way through the area (as it usually does here on the coast!) and the ocean was a little wild for a while, but then it dropped and the calmness settled in.
It is my favorite party as there is always an amazing musician/band and around midnight, the lanterns are lit and we send our wishes out into the world from the beach, barefoot in the sand.
I collected these gorgeous petals & leaves I found on my walk yesterday to make a nature mandala inside against one of my new paintings. I just LOVE the vibrant colors and energy is portrays.
