Some New Art

These are a few things I've been working on.

I'm really excited about a new opportunity that has landed in my path.

Two weeks ago, I got my Kindred Spirits newsletter from Anne Marie, the SoulCollage wonder of the Universe! She always includes suggestions for books, movies and websites. One of the websites in the May 19th newsletter was the gallery of Shiloh Sophia McCloud (who inspired my latest little doll). I was so touched by her paintings. I cried as I looked at them and read her words. I am not often moved in that way by art, as much as I love it.

I had to know everything about her and so I started finding out tons. Boy, is she amazing! It all seems like a dream, but somehow I came across her sister and contacted her (I think through MySpace) and we quickly made a beautiful friendship. I have joined the Cosmic Cowgirls Ink publishing group.You can read for yourself what it represents, what it is. I think I could talk about it forever but you can easily see for yourself.

I feel this is the next step in my life's work that I have been praying for. I can always feel when something huge is going to happen. I knew this was right the moment I found it. I am so excited at the idea of having a medium through which to explore and share my dream of showing other women that they can change their lives. It doesn't matter what our history is. It doesn't matter how our childhood was. It doesn't matter what kind of mistakes we've made. All that matters is that we recognize that we can have our dreams!!

Life is amazing. God is so generous and loving.

I have friends who are hurting for various reasons. My heart weeps for them. They fuel my desire to help bring healing to any hurting woman (or man, for that matter).

I have no idea (well, a few ideas) how this will play out. I am completely in the hands of Source, of the Universe and this sense of passion and love. I know that my path is laid out before me.

When I am confused about the next step, it always comes down to, "how can I serve?" and always, every time, an answer is thrown before my feet to guide me.

It's a thrilling life. I can't wait to see where it takes me.

I love you all. xoxoxoxox

I think I mentioned this before but I have been a fan of Shiloh for over a year now. I was lucky enough to stand in her Mendocino gallery and look at her fantastic original paintings. All of them spoke to me on such a level that I knew it would influence my own art one day. Her messages are fantastic as is her vision. I talked about her on my blog after that and own 2 of her prints.
One day in the not too distant future I hope to take one of her workshops.I am very happy for you that you have joined the Cosmic Cowgirls. I will be quite interested to see where this leads you, I know it will be to great things.
Love and hugs,

I love that you put it all out there and trust that an answer will come. You are right, the universe does answer, but some people dont listen. This new step sounds wonderful for you. Congratulations.
