How Dreams Come to Life?
Beginning with a dream scrawled in my journal, words quickly morphed into thumbnail sketches, and a new series of abstracts is born!
See the birthing process.
For years I've relied on dreams to inspire my paintings, yet never have given them space to be the star of my art. Now it's time. So excited to explore these more fully, I set about creating a series of pastels on 30" x 22" Arches Oil paper.

Circle of Life Message from the Other Side
Tears welled up as I carefully drew the tenuous circle I'd seen in the vision. Near and far, the space opened up 3-d > 4-d then tranformed into a vivid 5-d dream experience showing me the message of my newest painting collection!!!
Dream: "I arrived without my baggage. Mom was with me. I was 'out there' and now I'm back here in this body of work: Circle of Life. Come and go as you please. At times you reach across t…

A week doesn't go by when I am not contacted by someone who has acquired one of my artworks ~ who does NOT KNOW who the artist is! The value of the artwork is tied directly to the artist. You've seen stories of people finding valuable artwork in attics, but not having a clue the art has any value.

Creativity Essential #3
Healing Spring Energies
3rd essential of creativity is NOT KNOWING!
I find I know less and less as I grow older. I still WANT to know everything. Now a split second of NOT KNOWING accompanies nearly every action. This enables me to conduct the Healing Painting Session in today's video.
This session began with three large canvases flat on the tables. Participants stood surrounding the tables on all sides with me. I drew cues for the painting from their collective energy. The video picks up at…
Creativity Essential #2

In the first 10 seconds of the video, how did I receive instructions from the Creatrix?
List 3 times you heard, but avoided using t…
