Tedx Sacramento Reflections Ted Talks

It is a beautiful thing to witness another's greatness! It was evident that many caring and energized people supported this event. Curator Brando Weber and his Ted Staff gifted us all with a day filled with generosity !!! I enjoyed being on the campus of Sacramento City College. The innovative speakers shared their unique individual visions, artists shared their music. I sat back row center taking it all in. We were invited across the street to a park for Magpie boxed lunches. Cardboard mats and benches, orange chairs, shade trees and many wonderful people enjoyed lunch together. I would be very interested in the Ted Salon events. If you have an opportunity to go on line and visit their web site you will certainly be glad you did.  Check out Ted Talks for more.

Canyon walks

I Live at the rim of the American river canyon. My early morning walks with my black and white dapple mini dachshund Lili fill me with inspiration and peace of mind throughout my day. The perfection of shape, colors, and sound. It all speaks to me. Awakens my senses. It is my belief that I bring all this nature into being through my art. A celebration of the blessings that surround us each day. In gratitude.

Yoga and Art

I have been away from my yoga practice for far too long. The past four days I have started back. The East Wind Yoga studio in Auburn CA. is where I practice. I am welcomed by my paintings in their front room. Scott Emerich who brought East Wind to Auburn commissioned me upon his arrival to create a paintings for the studio. His only request was that I embed in the painting his logo. It was the first time I had done this. The painting is a four foot circle which was inspired by a section of the American a river that flows near our community. His logo a sail and his favorite yoga pose. The painting was designed to hold him and our community in the many blessings of our neighborhood. Rich in so many natural resources. The stone apatite showers the logo. This stone is know as a learning stone and can assist in clarifying your purpose in life and assist in strength to follow it. Scott has now moved on to his next chapter and Ryan and Natasha will continue bringing us all nourishment in the form of the opportunity to do yoga surrounded by our friends from the beautiful community we love. In gratitude.
