Glimpses of in-process art+life+musings from Instagram this past week…
Even in my photography days, I was apparently painting worlds! Found this old photo in a scrap bin tonite… Funny how we spiral again and again with all the things we love… Organic lines, color, trees, magical places of layers, texture and life…
when you are

Aries is where you will find the moon today. First sign of the zodiac, Aries is direct and self-assertive. The energy is about spontaneity, making decisions and taking action. Welcome this into your creative awareness today and see what flows for you. Trust yourself. Learn through and enjoy your experience. It’s all yours. I almost forgot to share the moon sign today because I took one step in my studio a couple of hours ago and knew exactly how I was rearranging it – which I had no intention of doing, but it feels so much better! Any spontaneous or effective movements showing up for you today? Go with it. Get to know you and how your urges guide you. What do you know you want, what feels adventurous or fresh – even if it seems absurd to practicality or you’re not sure why??? Sun moves into Sagitarrius today, too.
Whatcha making today??? (I’m exploring paths to colorful worlds in seemingly arbitrary textures, layers and marks. This one’s coming along at its own pace, for sure.)
Moon in sensual Taurus today. You might feel most at home or in the flow by staying grounded, quiet or connecting with mama earth. A good day for expressing gratitude for your resources and offering a little loving care toward your amazing body and all it does for you. What has felt true to your creative energy today? I’d love to know how you have felt the gifts of this strong sign emotionally or creatively. Any of you amazing Tauruses out there?
Finished up a handmade journal and monthly calendar for next year in between baking pies and Moon gazing tonite.
How’s that Gemini Moon treating your internal world? Gemini is all about the way we listen and ‘speak’ with the world around us through our perception… It is the storyteller energy, sparked in all the wonder that is to be experienced and the amazing details to observe… And how all of this is part of a vast network of clues to the intricacies of life that beg us to keep our approach fresh, our eyes open, and our stories receptive to change. Gemini flows with an inquisitive and vital energy – and with the moon’s influence, this might be the approach where you will find your own emotional harmony right now, too. How has this full moon in Gemini shown up for you?
On our woodwalk today, we also stopped by Warren Wilson to say a little thanks to the farm animals for all they give us. The pigs were *loving* the gorgeous weather, cows were happily grazing, and flocks of birds were dancing magic in the skies over the field. I kept thinking what an amazing and beautiful world we live in.
See you on Instagram next week!
