It’s been over a week, almost two since I last blogged! EEEK!
I have been busy the past few weeks planning shows, creating and “cleaning house”.
Just this past week I began to follow the book “Spiritual Diary: An Inspirational Thought for Each Day of the Year”. In the first few pages of the book, it explains how to use the diary. In my words, this is how: Read a passage/inspirational quote each morning, meditate on the passage and then throughout the day, refer back to the passage for inspiration, courage, clarity and guidance.
Today’s quote is from yogi Paramahansa Yogananda ” Live only in the present, not in the future. Do your best today; don’t look for tomorrow.
This diary has been such an amazing, yet simple gift given to myself and Nick by his father Craig Bullock, a Kriya Yoga teacher and ordained minister with the Center for Spiritual Awareness and also the founder and spiritual director of The Assisi Institute.
I have been busy preparing for a few shows coming up in the nest few weeks…
The first falling on a Friday and Saturday July 30th, and 31st. I will be exhibiting my art at Spark Contemporary Art Space in Syracuse, along with over 10 more artist! There will be live music from bands like Gracious Sakes Alive, Failed States, One Man Riot/Underground River, Donna and more! For more info on this event check out the Facebook event page here. I almost forgot to mention, all proceeds of this event go to bikes for refugees!
The next event is August 8th at the front outdoor lawn of The Museum of the Earth. The event is called Art Fest at the Mote. I will be part os this lovely art day celebration that will have tents and booths set up with local artist selling and showing all of their awesome work. I will have my own tent, self-titled.
This will be my very first art festival ever! I’m so excited! I have been busy preparing all new work and items to bring with me that day like hand-printed fabrics, journals and cards.
And of course, some of my original work and prints will be on site too! Some other artists like Ryan B. Curtis, Rachel Philipson and One Swell Gal will also be there!
I almost forgot to share some photos from Independence day. The lights are mesmerizing and so full of energy. I could stare at fireworks and sparklers all night while listening to radiohead. Click on radiohead, then scroll down while listening.
