Bright shiny objects just call to be photographed. After dumping the block of ice that had frozen in my garden wagon, I noticed the sparkling lights and winter colors and of course, could not resist a few photos and then patterns/reflections – voila! Ice Jewels.
The slide gallery shows all six of the designs that are derivative artworks from that wagon full of ice.
You can see four of them (framed and ready to hang or giftwrap) at the 12th Annual Art In Sixes holiday show at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance 37 Main St. Narrowsburg, NY (Great Holiday Shopping at this event which features 168 artists and over 500 works of art!)
As you may know I also represent other artists via the virtual Gallery Number Nine and just want to add that six of us have work in the 2016 Art In Sixes show – the others are: Philip Jostrom, Tamara D’Antoni, Louis N. Pontone, Ramona Jan and Susan Miiller. And, of course you are invited to see all of our art online at Gallery Number Nine.

I’m very excited to participate in the first “INSPIREWORKS Art Institute” with SUNY Sullivan at the Narrowsburg Union!
INSPIREWORKS presents 23 Art Institute courses that SUNY Sullivan is presenting NOW – this summer into the fall at Narrowsburg Union in Narrowsburg, NY. As one of the 15 teaching artists*, I’ll be presenting a leading edge, sacred geometry, law of attraction, power of positive thinking, adult coloring, meditative version of my Seeds of Intention workshop. You can sign up for either Saturday, August 6th or Saturday, September 10th, 2016. It is a 3 hour workshop from 1 to 4 pm and all of the materials are included in the course fee.

Seeds of Intention – course description:
This workshop combines the therapeutic benefits of music, meditation and coloring within the informational patterns of the universal Flower of Life. Yo will be guided to create a work of art that is energetically aligned with a relevant-to-you, career or personal goal. The final artwork, your unique SEED of INTENTION is a visual representation of having already achieved your goal and it functions as nourishment towards your success.
The image below is a Seed of Intention that I created to represent my goal to facilitate the most enjoyable and authentic Seed of Intention workshop for myself and all participants:
