NYC is 90, unhealthy, and sensitive. NYC is a curmudgeon. The music vibe perfectly conveys the tension of hobos and heatwaves on the subway ride home... I could not get home fast enough! #humpdayvibes#johnzorn#soundon
I’m interrupting five Days of beach fun to join @the12weeksof summer for their weekly theme: mountains. Before leaving for the beach, I sat with these glass mosaic pieces in a much-needed quick creativity moment in the art studio late at night. As I often do, I turn to art as a form of worship, praise and peaceful therapy! 🙌🏻💖 They’ve been sitting here as #truth Reminders and since it’s mountain week, well, time to share 🤗 . A Personal note: If you have followed along with me for a while, you may have read our family has been climbing a mountain for some time. In this treacherous journey, we have learned so much along the way. We have been lifted up over the sharpest and hardest peaks. And we have fallen down and needed to start our climb all over again - and again and again. Throughout the climb, one thing has remained steady and our ONLY source of strength - the Lord’s grace. . Our family may be beginning a new journey, as a new road is opening up for us. It’s a road untraveled and absolutely a bit scary but I remind myself God is with us - he’s gone before us and will follow behind. There is nothing to fear. I have learned over the years of being a Christ-follower, he turns mountains into roads. ⛰🛣 . I lift up my eyes to the mountains; where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. -Psalm 121:1-2
Haha! Someone attempted to trace over (& sign!) one of my old pieces. Kinda lost the lines, there, Bud (& a good chunk of the concept). But I’m pretty sure this means it influenced this person... er... in some way, or other... Really though, good for whomever for having the guts to draw on the walls!
If I had to sum up my 42nd year with a theme it would most definitely be a “divine liberation.” (The name of this painting.) It started in March 2018, when I had the idea to paint what was going on in my soul. The visions, the feelings, the stirring, the energy, the power, the freedom - it was hard to describe in words. So I knew I was gonna have to learn how to paint people in order to bring to life the powerful transformation that was going on inside of me. Basically 2018 was spiritual bootcamp in love & what showing up raw and authentically looks like and feels like in relationships. My 42nd year kicked me in the ass & knocked me off my feet as, countless times, I buckled to my knees in tears, grief stricken & confused with the overwhelming pain of a heart hurting more than I ever thought possible. But out of that pain and anguish sprouted a fiery warrior woman who is determined and has learned through experience that nothing can break her when her heart remains open - despite how others act. 42 was the year I MOST learned about unconditional love - giving it & being it even when it felt like the hurt could crush me. But it didn’t. It made me love more. I learned how to both love & walk away when it hurt too much to love. 143 is my number. It’s been with me my whole life and has spoken to me in the darkest times reminding me that I’m loved and I AM love. So I look forward to my 43rd year on the planet. This will be my greatest year of love. I will set the world ablaze this year in greater and mightier ways than I ever knew I could with my fierce and fiery determination to love with abandon, remain open know matter what & dance & sing & create because we don’t need weapons. There’s nothing to fear, And if we do, all we need to do is sing. 💗 . . . #sfartist#sanfranciscopainter#acrylicpainter#intuitivepainter#channeling#artishealing#painter#sfpainter#acrylicpainter#commissions#commissionsopen#createeveryday#openheart
As you noticed I am playing around with frames and borders and quotes and layout lately... Well today I do add a bit more confusion by playing with the posting order too. And yes the solution of last years posting will come after... Late, - this evening.
WILL ALWAYS SEE YOU … Il y a des projets hors du commun. Celui ci est particulier tant dans le fond que dans la forme. A l’occasion des 25 ans d’eurotunnel j’ai été invité à réaliser une œuvre qui se déploie en France et en Angleterre. J’interroge l’horizon que nous proposons aux jeunes générations: comment leur donner la curiosité et l’envie d’aller de découvrir l’autre, de dépasser les frontières? Cette œuvre célèbre l’amitié qui unit nos peuples et souligne l’enjeu de garder nos yeux ouverts pour continuer à se découvrir, se regarder, se connaître. Les stéréotypes nationaux se nourrissent souvent des crises internationales et des messages que véhiculent les politiques. J’aimerai à travers ce projet véhiculer un message d’union plutôt que de désaccord. Et cela me touche d’autant plus que je suis moi même franco britannique.
Wild woman body oil with Calendula and Rose Petals growin in the garden. . . Being a wild woman for me means you paid your dues and you paid nothing because you never owed anyone anything. Only to yourself to live what you came here to do in this particular chaotic time and embrace it. Embrace it in all its ups and downs and all arounds. Some of us have been exploited at a young age, later in life or for a long period of time. We delevoped shadows from the pain, yet we are here. We became wild and feral and fell in love with our scars. Wished to let the road’s snakeing Wild take us away forever. Still we are here. Healing and blossoming all the same. We are growing beautifully. We are gloriously painting the path ahead with our dreams and dirty ol boots that seen all those miles and heartache and joy and heavenly western sunsets. We OK 👌 .
