This luna moth painting was inspired by an experimental intuitive art/energy healing workshop that I hosted in September. Only my sister and two friends in attendance because they didn't mind my experimenting with [on?] them. 😁
I've been painting intuitively for longer than I can remember but my practice became "intentionally" intuitive just in the past 3–5 years as part of my personal path back to radiant health.
I've decided to share the process, partly for fun, but also to push myself out of my comfort zone. Turns out it is not easy to put an intuitive practice into words!
So Luna came through while I was stumbling around in the dark... and that seemed like a good thing.
I was very excited to have my design selected to cover one of seven new electrical boxes commissioned by the Ithaca Arts Council in the spring of 2017.
My mural lives at the corner of Court and Tioga streets.
The image I submitted and eventually painted — was inspired by the global woman's march and resistance movement. During this ugly divisive political climate, I wanted to create something beautiful, spirit-lifting, joyful, and empowering that represents our role as stewards of our planet. Tapping into the energy of the women's march, these are goddesses that look like flames shooting out from the ocean to support each other and the earth!
Here are some images of the mural throughout the process.
