Sneak Peek (and first listen!) into The Grounded Soundtrack

Last week I shared how I painted the front cover of the soundtrack to the motion picture The Grounded.   This week, I want to take you behind the scenes of the creation of the back cover of the CD.   The amazing and talented composer Stuart Mitchell gave me free rein over the design of the back cover. Here is what I came up with!     1. Sketch out a composition until happy with the design, then draw onto a canvas. For the back of the CD, I wanted to show footprints on sand:     2. Paint […]

Painting the Energy of The Heart

Since this is Heart Health Month, it’s the perfect time to show you a little behind-the-scenes of a painting series I just finished!   I thought it would be fun to show you all the different layers of paint that went into the final painting.   I generally get images or ideas of what I want to paint as I lay in bed at night inviting sleep in.   One night I felt overcome with the desire to capture healing images of each chakra, so I spent a few weeks honing in on the words I felt activates the energy

The most vivid intuition I’ve ever gotten

My lovely grandma passed away early last Friday morning…   As I head up to here part of the country for services and to hug my beautiful precious mother and spend time with her, I feel extremely open to spirit and tender.   It is during these times I like to remember some of my most vivid intuitions and enjoy knowing my grandmother is a part of the pure, positive world of spirit.   I remember my very favorite spiritual vision I’ve ever had and I’d like to share that with you here today in memory of my grandmother’s life

Empowered Birth Awareness, save the date!

I was watching Good Luck Charlie the other evening with my daughter on The Disney Channel, and the mother of the sitcom went into labor as part of the plot line. As predicted, the following scenes were full of screaming and panic. I leaned over to my daughter and told her, like I have many many times before, that real birth is not like this. That giving birth to a baby is one of the most natural things we do as women, in fact, it is the reason that human being have survived on this planet in the first place!

Inspiration Wednesday… Your New Rx

  You know all those prescription commercials you see on TV? The ones where they have some actor smile and say how much better they feel on a certain medication? And then the actor walks along a glistening beach playing fetch with her dog while some slick, fast speaking man says things like “side effects include, but are not limited to: rash, headache, nausea, diarrhea, infection, depression, mental status change, stroke, heart attack, or death. Do not take this drug while taking any other drug. Do not use this drug if you are pregnant, nursing, laying down, standing up, living,

Inspiration Wednesdays… I shredded my old anatomy textbook and came up with this instead!

Okay, maybe I didn’t shred it… more like tore it apart. I created several new works of art out of it, and wanted to share the first one with you here:       I had so much fun with this artwork… I literally ripped out the page from my old anatomy textbook and painted in the new *reality* that I have discovered is the true secret to health. Being a physician it is so interesting for me to look back and reflect on what we were taught as impressionable young students in medical school… the model for disease and
