Custom Canvas, from start to finish!

I have, literally, just created one of the most fun custom paintings I have ever had the pleasure of painting! This one was so fun for me, I almost passed out a few times from the sheer cuteness of it all while I painted.   The original sketch of the artwork…   I love painting custom pet portraits. I offer that here in my Etsy shop. A fabulous woman over in the UK wanted me to paint some of her pets for her… pets past and present, all gathered together in a field. This is right up my alley, because […]

A Goddess Delivers…

  A Goddess Delivers, canvas and Giclee prints and cards now available in my shop!   My lovely midwife and herbalist friend Adrienne Leeds, of Abundant B’earth, was generous enough to share a writing from Whapio Diane Bartlett called The Holistic Stages of Labor that I truly enjoyed, and *felt* very much like what I wanted to convey in my painting: “The time of the Birthing Tides generally feels good to women. No matter how tiring or exhausting her journey, the Mother experiences a second wind, a new spurt of energy and excitement. The birth now becomes more of an

Cleopatra, A Mummy, and Some of My All-Time Favorite Etsy Artists

My daughter wants to be an archaeologist some day… some day soon. I’ve talked about how our backyard is the site of her first dig… and how she has a deep connection to Ancient Egypt.

Thoughts on Health… the Brain

There’s a lot of suffering in thinking you should know and be right and figure things out and that sort of thing. When we are out there in ego, we believe we can know and should know. When we come back to center, we realize that we don’t know and we don’t need to know. So it’s a coming back to center that has us on the right path. – Cheri Huber The brain is our knowledge power house. It is our database, stores our memories, sorts facts, a filing cabinet which processes new information and fits in into our
