Randomly had an art night and some beautiful creations came out of it. Jake, Kristen, and Marc came out to my house and were totally down to create. See pics below.
Jake is one of my coolest relatives. I’ve actually only had the pleasure of making his acquaintance over the past few years. Growing up an only child, it was nice to discover that I have blood out there that thinks like I do. Not only that, we look alike! : p Jake’s really quick and has a rich inner world informed by interesting knowledge he’s gained through research, introspection, and relationships with cool friends/fam where he grew up near Augusta, Georgia. Just talking to him is a pleasure because he expands your mind without hardly any effort at all. He makes music too! His bandcamp is here: https://jakcipher.bandcamp.com/releases
Collaboration get Down – Marc and Kristen
Marc is one of my most interesting friends (He’s a Gemini which I’m particularly fond of) We don’t get together often but he’s always down to make art and talk spiritual vibes. Reiki and mysticism are interwoven into Marc’s world as he continues his journey as a healer. He came out with his good friend, Kristen, who I had the pleasure of meeting for the first time. She’s a badass artist and a really sensory oriented person. They enticed me away from my own work for a while and it was fun to collab together. We were like little kids pigging out on icecream. This really wicked delectable work came out of it. It looks like it’s moving. The painting sums up the energy of the night.
Progress on Tree Rings
Somehow with all the fun, I still got to do my own work last night and am really excited as the details come together on this large piece hanging out in my dining room currently. Thanks for keeping up to date as I make progress on it. Can’t wait to share a final version for you that I hope to make so beautiful you could jump into it and spend years swimming among the abstraction. L O V E
Focusing this week on Growth and what that means for me.
Where I’m At
I’ve spent the past two days playing around with WordPress and figuring out ways to make my website a better destination for visitors. Not an easy task for an introverted visual oriented meditation aficionado. But, hey, sometimes our lessons in stillness come from a little effort crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s.
The new additions to my website include a shopping experience, this blog, and an updated list. I’m also hiding a few goodie widgets here and there and hoping you will find them amusing and inspiring.
About My Journey
The name Lotus Heartsong is chosen by me and represents the intentional creation that I put forth into the world at all times. I think, as artists, we have the rare opportunity to shape culture as a whole and I say, why not then, lean towards beauty and flow… and our inner lotus. Heartsong is all about that life – the unfolding – the courage to be more of myself – and to dance un-apologetically like no one is watching. My artist persona is simply Lotus. It is the culmination the rapture and awe, tribulation and ease, love and resistance, and gentle passivity that I have come to call my own on this planet.
Another key aspect you will notice in my work is the balance and interplay of light and shadow. I feel this is important in our personalities as well. Head in the clouds and feet on the ground. My life, personal work, and endeavors in guiding others would be wrapped up by the effort to play with and balance light and shadow within each of us. I am fascinated by the importance of polarity and hope you will take pleasure in that too if you decide to purchase any of my art. It is designed for healing your spirit and your psyche.
I look forward to sharing more visuals, music, and my life with you here on this adventure.
My Sacred Connection With You
What have you been up to today? Ping me in the spirit world or online. It’s all about community and I thrive from our sacred connection. Let’s uplift each other and if we can’t make the world a better place, then certainly a more funky place will suffice.
