the past week was a convergence of fear and creativity, a confluence of thought and action. i invited ines dali to sit for a painting, and thought i would grab a few snapshots of her for reference. my car was broken into the night before, and the camera i anticipated using was stolen: an intervention of the universe that collided me with a new camera the morning of our meeting. i turned my living room into a studio, did hair and makeup on ines (yes... myself), and shot through 3 batteries.
magic and more magic.

going green?

by far, one of the greatest ideas i have seen for encouraging us all to go a little greener is change: a starter kit. partners melanie monroe and del harley, both accomplished musicians, met years ago in nashville. they now live on opposite coasts, but have remained friends. they believe that change CAN happen one person at a time, and their kit gives you a place to start. their recycled box contains a booklet, an arbor day plantable seedling, gratitude cards, sudoku booklet, recycled pencil, a funky tote bag for groceries with ghandi's quote "you must be the change you wish to see in the world," fair trade hot chocolate, a charity envelope, and a handmade journal made from shavings of a lotka bush, requiring no trees to be cut down.

your jupiter sign

my friend pam is so amazing. she is the woman that everyone wants to be. she has an awesome husband, a beautiful daughter, a great house, and she radiates beauty and love effortlessly to everyone she meets. her recent, as she puts it, "hilarious obsession" with astrology prompted her to bring me a book last week called madalyn aslan's jupiter signs. its a magical little book that gives you a guide for discovering your jupiter sign by your birth date, and then a detailed chapter illuminating how you can take advantage of your unique gifts and become your highest self, accessing your authentic and true nature. i am a "sadge" jupiter, as jupiter was in sagittarius when i was born. pam suggested i make a digital collage of my sadge jupiter self, as "queen of the universe" to help me connect with the ideals put forth in the reading. last night i created the collage, below. i can now do jupiter sign portrait readings for you too! with a birthdate and a portrait photo, i will create a jupiter sign portrait for you, and provide an intuitive reading to accompany it. please click on the email link below for details and pricing.

"married to the universe"
me, in all my sadge jupiter glory.
ask me to make one for you
