The conversations with visitors (and other artists) about life and art ARE the Studio Tour. Like giving encouragement to a woman to just jump in and make mandalas (after she asked me if I taught mandala classes). We all have hesitated, at times, to break out of old concepts and restrictions, especially when it comes to creating something entirely new.
So I will listen to my own words and make mandalas in new and freeing ways, breaking out of my old patterned grooves after 25 years of making mandalas. I have no idea how it will come about or what will show up, and that’s the point. We are living in an atmosphere totally new to our life here on this planet. It is permeating everything.
The last push, getting ready for the Studio Tour next week. It always seems that the art shows up in concrete form at the last minute, after being in my head for a long while. Reminding myself how much fun this is!
You are cordially invited to visit me on the Studio Tour.

I am redesigning The Other Shore cards.
The original set of 64 is being pared down a bit.
They are collage images with poetry.

And new cards are showing up, a bindu series,
named after the center of a mandala and in square format.

Listened to an intriguing talk by David Wilcock, at the Awake and Aware Conference last September in LA, while I worked in the Studio today. The talk was split into 15 segments on You-tube. It is the story of now, the major shift that is happening to all of us, whether we want it or not. I love how people like David are researching the science and are open to the invisible realm.
