"Where Bloggers Create" Par-tayyyy is Here!

 My Theme This Year Is...

My Oh My! We are doing it..yet again! How fun!  Much thanks to that beautiful, creative gal, Karen Valentine for making this happen!  5th year! Last year my studio was in Portland, Oregon.  September brought more changes for me (only 2 months after posting for the 2012 WBC party),  I moved to Las Vegas to be closer to my 94 year old mom. She was having some health issues that called me to be closer to her and help her with the end of life process.  Making her transition in January of this year, from " Independent Living " into " Assisted Living"  has had me going through some real " emotional stretching " for sure. It's so very sad to watch your mom become weaker and weaker.. A heart that has become worn with time. So I ask myself what is it I can draw on to keep my vibe high and not get pulled into the sadness? My Art. I rented a condo here and made the place into my art /healing studio...Here are the pictures. Enjoy! The second bedroom is under construction and that is where I will do other art projects and quantum-reiki. Will post that room when I finish designing it.

This is a bouquet of flowers with the signature peacock feathers that I made for this years party! Got them at Trader Joes! So Inexpensive!

I have been inspired by this book, this year and it has been a GOD SEND from my daughter-in-law! It has led me to painting..and writing! ( She is a GOD SEND) ...Thank you Mrs. Absher!

I have been very inspired by these two books, as well, and have been teaching myself to paint with acrylics.

This is where I paint. 

Yes, that is fresh lavender. Had to!

The beautiful triage...that helps me through it all..

New Stories, Scripts and Re-Imaginings in my journals also help. My favorite goblet sits right beside me.

This is where I am sitting.. blogging to you! The end of the chaise is where I make my jewelry. I also give over-the-phone intuitive readings in this space. Thinking about covering the mirror in leather. How do you RE-Imagine It? Huge Chalkboard?

The RE-Imagine That!  Studio. 

One of the things that got me back into painting was participating in Wine and Canvas..they are going on all over the country! Soooo much fun!

First painting @ Wine and Canvas/ Las Vegas

My next painting....FLOWER POWER begins to EMERGE !.

Next FLOWER POWER painting is really bright I am finding how much I love "getting back" to painting!
Another one.
This is the start of my new painting. It will become a peacock feather. Can't wait to see how it wants to reveal itself!
So we come to the end of my Art/Healing Pad! I need to get busy on this painting. Enough about me...I want to see your art pad!  We actually have all week-end ! Have a groovy day and know you are LOVED!  Stay cool and creative!

Presenting another RE-Imagine That! Artist ~Bobby Furst!

 Hope you all had a great 4th of July week-end!
A long one indeed! My son, daughter-in-law and I had an opportunity to visit an amazing assemblage artist in Joshua Tree, California. We went to his art compound after a wonderful " Summer Solstice " celebration in Pioneertown, CA.
 His name is Bobby Furst and he " Re-Imagines " most anything into unique and wonderful pieces of art. The mixed media that he uses in his art may include musical intsruments, old signs, ribbons and string, wire, cables, wheels, spokes, chains, bones, helmets, bells, clocks, lights .... you name it!  Taking everyday objects and creating pieces that challenge our mind and spirit to "SHIFT" into that deeper perspective regarding social, political and enviornmental issues. I was especially taken in by this art installation. The word peace is made out of empty bullet casings which depict all the waste of lives that war brings about. Behind it he has placed the American Flag. Books sit below with the names of soldiers that have died in war. This photo I doctored up for the 4th of July, but you can see what an amazing artist he is. The rest of the photos are of his Art Pad and Art. Enjoy!

One of the many buildings on the property that display his art. 

Far-out metal pieces line the driveway!

Even a PEACE cake!

Bobby with my son and daughter-in-law.

Thank you Bobbie Furst for a great tour of your Art Pad!

I also like to RE-Imagine photos... so these are more pictures that I RE-Imagined. You are free to use them to help spread the word of Peace and Love!

This was a flag that was blowing in the wind when we got there!

I RE-Imagined it into this.

Our imaginations are our most valuable tool in creating what we want in our lives. It is where all ideas are born. I Feel. 

This sign that Bobby made says War- Wrong Way

I RE-Imagined it into this.

So there you have it! Hope you enjoyed the show and have a wonderfully creative week. I will be back with a view of my own studio for the " Where Bloggers Create Party" that opens up to over 300 artist/ bloggers studios this Friday the 12th of July!!!

Peace and Loverly Re-Imaginings!
