"May all things move and be moved in me
and know and be known in me
May all creation
dance for joy within me.
This morning was so cool, so refreshing - I just walked around my lawn and captured the beauty
of the morning. This is the cupid fountain, herbs, and flowers,
and lanterns outside my studio. I am going through the pink door soon
to create in my studio.
I wish each of you a beautiful and creative day.
Treasured stones - all shapes, all sizes,
all colors .....
gathered on the beach of Lake Erie.

or in your hands."

The photo is a picture of a close up panel
of an Oriental screen - oriental room
dividers - that I painted with silk paints &
India Inks. I created this screen this last
fall for a solo exhibit where 42 pieces of
my art were on exhibition at the
Ashtabula Arts Center in Ashtabula,
I like not only the sound of the words
"Feng Shui" - but also the concept.
It, as some may know, is the art of the
placement of your surroundings -
whether it be your living space, your
work space - the areas around
which you live.
It is a very, very old art. The Chinese have practiced it for over a thousand
years. The art of Feng Shui enhances the flow of engery surrounding
you. This flow of engery creates peace and harmony in the way you
conduct your daily life.
It has to do with the arrangement of furniture, mirrrows, placement of
your bed and even having a living plant in your rooms.
I hope that you close your eyes; and think of clean, and crystal
thoughts and how you might bring Feng Shui into your life.
