'I brought you here to show you were we've been. Our bond. Trust. That I am always with you. Your heart is healing right now. You feel it, its warm.
We are all interwoven and come around again. Do not fear, these rocks have been here forever.
I'm quite sure i dont need it anymore. i am but a pebble. the earth is so vast. we are pilgrims just passing through. but this earth, is meant to be enjoyed, adored, its sacred because we experience it.
The wind blows the cleanest air my lungs have ever received. I am so deeply loved. The sun is on my face.
i am everywhere. this moment - its everything. now let me get there....
What am i here for?
your inner workings
what does this trip symbolize?
simply beauty, in its pure natural form.
Just like the water you are carving your own unique path right through hard rock.
My dreams became present at the red rocks with a feeling of such knowing - i've been here before and i'll be back in a new way, a new life. What i've come to learn is we are all existing here and now, ever present. and we have access at all times in ways unique to each individual, we each have a unique way of existing, to the best of our own inner knowledge. Its really very simple.
We don't need anything we weren't born with or God given.
presence with God
its all in here
our selves, the treasure, its here - Now
we need only be quiet and look within
sit with ourselves and be
love of ourselves love one another
I want to use my hands and heart, to trust and know. to remind myself of all my wonderful magical pure experiences. And so we say, AMEN' - excerpt from my journal on this trip
Needless to say, Boulder CO was a magical trip and I go back to it time and time again for inspiration.
"Here I Am Am I Here"
"Pocahontas in her Tipi"
We all have a story to tell, this is mine, through my art. "I am endlessly creating myself."
I have some good friends who bring home barn wood for me and this was one of the pieces. I love when there is a knot at the top left or right corner to symbolize the sun or the moon. This painting is about a Native American life in Montana. I started dreaming of Native Americans almost ten years ago and feel very connected to them. We have native american lineage from my grandmas dad's side. My grandmother looked very native american.
This is an ode to a life connected to nature and mother earth. Its something I admire, especially when i'm starting to feel the pull to retreat into the forest for awhile and just 'get away.' We have an amazingly big oak tree in our back yard I go to when I need grounding, or I'll look at this painting and feel myself being very grounded. I like to paint a fire with smoke because it symbolizes life. There has to be someone there even though you can't see them. The smoke goes right up over the trees and mountain to the sky and connects heaven and earth. I feel at any moment Pocahontas will emerge from her Tipi and tend to the fire.
This is Boulder CO, I sat on a rock in the middle of this stream. I watched matt fish. I connected with my dad, my Guru, and many other guides and got present. And i wrote what came to me....
This is one of my favorite paintings. It makes sense to me and I love the color, pattern and vibe it gives off. I don't know that i'll ever sell this piece. Its a self portrait of who i was in another life- looking back over the mountains, through the terrain, and gathering my thoughts about it all. She's a sage. A medicine woman. A girl who walked the mountains foraging for herbs. She's bright and intense and knows what her purpose in life is. She is happy doing it and is fulfilled. Theres a longing for where she came from but a contentment being exactly where she is. Everything she wears is art, an extension of her inner being. She is very connected. I can learn a lot from her, and have already. I saw her in a few dreams and this painting depicts her perfectly. Its the gaze in her eyes that I was able to capture. I am very thankful for the dreams that inspire paintings such as this one.
