Bloom True Bali

I went to Bali for a month in March and April to assist with two transformational intuitive painting retreats. It was my first time in Asia and it took nearly 30 hours to get there. I don’t know how to describe the heat and humidity other than to say that even my Viking ancestors were sweating. Hauling around a 600g uterus… Read more →

Beloved.

Beloved Festival. It was my first time. I was able to attend this year because I was invited to install some dreamcatchers on the Sufi Path.  I camped with Flora Bowley and Lynzee Lynx — you’ll see the live painting photos below. I had been to Bread & Puppet several times in Glover, Vermont. The vibe was similar, yet dramatically… Read more →

Abundance is a feeling

It’s not about the money. Whenever I feel contracted around money and want more of it to flow (have you noticed how money really does FLOW? now let’s be serious sometimes hard times can come round and you may even have to get the facts on borrowing in times of financial need), but when it’s flowing in abundance I like… Read more →

So it was a bitter sweet time, and here in Oregon, it just seems to go on and on. It’s…amazing. I had… Read more →

terrarium interior

diy terrariums

…terraria?!  i made mine by getting some activated charcoal from the pet store, and put a layer of that, a layer of pebbles, a layer of soil, and tromped around the woods for fun mosses and whatnot.  i even made a tiny one out of a horseradish jar.   Read more →

holiday nature ornaments with deer and butterfly

another in a long series of deer-obsession pieces…a project for a snowy afternoon in Vermont: holiday nature ornaments.  these look pretty nice even though they’re plastic and not glass.   I used some scrap sheepskin but cotton batting would work too.  Craft foliage and random little animals are so cute — if I had more globes I would put in some… Read more →
