Trusty Owl Studio Healing Sessions




The Process Art page is designed for transparency. It is an avenue in the process of creating a series to give each stage of creation proper time and attention to present itself. The songs that I choose are not for anybody or about anybody in my personal life. They are songs of the series, songs that are on repeat in my studio that create the climate of our stories being told. It is important to give other artists credit floating in the ethers of creative consciousness. When creating, I am in relation with others; songs, stories, folklore, animals, and paint. Rarely are these stories "mine", but do represent parts of me joined with parts of you 

>>> like aspen trees or river rock<<<

stories shared from underground. The paintings created are reflections on humanity, the struggles and the J0YS of living at a deeper and more poetic level. At times, there is amazing synchronicity with songs and my personal life; when lessons are to be learned. When that happens, I pay close attention to lyrics. However, more often, it seems emotion/frequency/intention of the storyteller is what I paint with and all aligns mysteriously. Sometimes it takes years to unravel the stories but they always direct my life. Animals in the paintings often physically appear in my daily life many times before and after a message is being delivered. The animals tend to "show up" in many forms ~ in waking life, in dreams, or sometimes repeatedly through conversations/photos/material/people. The messages are rarely literal but rather a series of events in my life that I decode until awareness resonates with colors. I love dearly this process, and it changes me from the inside out.

 My hope is that by being transparent about my process, others will pay close attention to what stories are being revealed to them through nature as well. What is "showing up" in your life? Is it a certain flower, tree, animal, body of water, mountain, plant, song, or a place in nature that keeps visiting you? They gently reach for our attention but they are not noisemakers, they do not scream like a pharmaceutical, or a drilling rig, or the big promotion. Rather, they are the most whispery of willows influencing and seeking those open to their unique language and direction. 



 Phase II of Trusty0wl
"The Castle" is now finished after 2 years (5 years total for both buildings)
---- stone by stone----each placed one at a time by my father, "papa Milo"
(who turned 73 yesterday) inspiring.
He built both of the Trusty0wl buildings with his hands & heart joined with my vision. A patient man, able to take my ideas and make them come to life. I am most grateful for his ability to "see" my inner world and build it outwardly. Excited to share this family creation from artists with other artists. A home for strumming, writing, presenting, storytelling, painting, designing, and teaching new and old ways of living in simplicity.
"Food as medicine" and herbal teachings take us back in time to relearn how to heal our ailments with phytonutrients, water, rest, nature, creativity, and relationship.
The PAUSE Series will currently be held in Boulder at ~~ Seidel City ~~ a new "modern museum" with an even more modern take on the arts-- a stage-- a kitchen--a pool-- firepit-- musicians ranging from the opera to punk bands- from photography to bronze-- fine art to farm to table. Truly my dream venue. The pause series will be held in a string of 3 private events from December to February with a range of surprise guests.
Workshops will follow the February event, beginning at the end of April / May in Boulder.
Our first summer artist-in-residence begins at Trusty0wl in Red Feather Lakes, Co late June/July
info will be available at events


Why is that?

that way ahead

around your face

around your neck

isn't it a curious thing

her underwater me

scurry right

scurry left

and back and bone

to front alone

may I hover here

above watching

you near

may they drop

or may they hold

my heels

or at my gown

swim twice alone

or drown

long enough to

count color

count home 
          --------------J pod -------------------

bled my bone

ground sucks me


underwater will

swallows shallow sound
her vibrations

walk me around

speak and chase
speak and
listen and listen and listen
to her face

still a ghost illuminates

I am so curious about that

In physics, sound is a vibration that typically propagates as an audible wave of pressure, through a transmission medium such as a gas, liquid or solid. In human physiology and psychology, sound is the reception of such waves and their perception by the brain.
