Song gets edits

Song for a New Consciousness

This morning I nearly finished Song for a New Consciousness. She is lovely and now in oils. The oil paint gives here a gloss and a bit of a mysterious look. It was hard to know when to stop painting. She was breathing this morning so I stopped. I’ll look at her again in the dark of tomorrow morning and make a decision to release her. Photos soon, I promise.

In the meantime, here is some video of this painting and the Thank You for my Kickstarter launch.

Always in gratitude of this beautyfull life,

There is an amazing painting reward for one lucky backer, her name is Song. After I returned home from Asheville, (following a chemical burn on my eye and a few weeks off from painting), I returned refreshed and very ready to paint!! The result was a facelift to one of my favorite paintings. I hope you like the results!!! Backers have an option for large and small prints of this painting too!

Song’s sister piece, Seven Sisters is next. Similar subjects coming out of beehives in the sky, several women. This very large work is also listed under the backer rewards on the Kickstarter. I will post pictures as the painting progresses.

Here is the link to the Kickstarter rewards:

In gratitude,


Thank you to Brenda at the Frame Outlet on Kerr Ave in Wilmington, NC for shooting some casual pictures of Song. Stop by to see the painting in person if ya like. It is awaiting its final scan. The folks at Frame Outlet are super friendly!

  1. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question
    that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing
    my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy
    writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!

    1. Hi Truly Free!

      Only you know what time of day would be your most productive. For me, rituals are important for creating. Some of them are: a music playlist already made that is my yoga stretch music, then my intro to work music. Yoga is great for setting your intentions and I have the best days when I adhere to doing yoga before I begin. The music cues on and I go into flow mode. Other ways to quiet the mind chatter are to light a candle, burn incense, put headphones on… Working during the early morning is best for me. There’s no one trying to reach me and nothing that anyone needs from me at 4 a.m. The muse likes to visit then. And ya know what, if I’m not up and ready to receive her, she’ll go on to others. As for writing… have your desk ready… cleared with only the items on it that you need. I keep my creation area free of numbers, to do lists, etc as much as possible. My yoga mat is right in front of where I paint. After yoga, the dialog with the painting can begin. …. Happy creating!!
