I'm a intuitive artist inspired by and confused by life. By combining art and meditation with a flow-of-consiousness style, my process becomes an vision quest and an escape into a world of symbols and color. I stop here occasionally to unravel my mind.

Thanksgiving or Taking?

Today is Thanksgiving.

And today we have First Americans peacefully protesting unapproved use of their land by a powerful oil company with government puppets and the law on its side. And yet, they are the trespassers. Meanwhile, our president is invisible and makes no statements about the mistreatment of peaceful protestors.

WATER is more important than OIL

PEOPLE are more important than MONEY.

There is much to be disgusted with in our country today.

Today I am thankful for the courage of our water protectors. 

Blue Waterfalls. 
Inspired by the beauty of waterfalls.
Oil Puker. My response to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. 
Unfortunately this is still relevant.

Recycle Love, Not Hate

It's impossible to make sense of a world where human beings shoot other human beings dead based on differences and prejudice based on those differences. 

We are stuck in a cycle of revenge. 

Hate creates more hate.

How can we not hate someone who kills someone we love based on their hate and revenge toward someone else? Someone else who just happens to have the same skin color, sexual orientation,practices the same religion, or has the same political or employment as our loved one? 

I don't know the answer. 

But I know that hate and revenge are not the answer.

If hate creates more hate, than love creates more love. 

It's time to evolve people. It's time to get stuck in a cycle of love.

But how do we get there from here?

Finding inspiration (and wine) in the Finger Lakes wine country

Slinky Wine Women, acrylic and ink on canvas. 

Slinky Wine Woman is slouching back, sipping wine, and allowing herself to be transported by the music. Her toes are tapping and it won't be long until she's up and grooving to the tunes. #liquidcourage

Put a Bern on it

Hello February...

January was BUSY.
Busy. BUSY. B U S Y.

My partner and my mother had big milestone birthdays. Lot's of fun and excitement.
Now I'm ready to re-focus my energy back to art, where it hasn't been since before the holiday chaos.

Here's a painting made for mom. Her backyard is visited by hummingbirds all summer. The animal totem energy of hummingbird is: heal, joy, happiness, love, timelessness, read more.

Mom's Hummingbird, mixed media on canvas, by Shera Delia. 

When you do things from your soul,
you feel a river moving in you.
A joy.
