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 the 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 the songs of the series--songs that are on repeat in my studio to help me understand the sound and emotion of the stories that want to be told. I also want to give the other artists credit that are floating in the ethers of creative consciousness >> share some not always mainstream talent. Songs, stories and paint then collide and rarely are these stories "mine," and not meant to represent "me." They do represent parts of me joined with parts of you; Like the Aspen trees, stories shared from the roots. The paintings created are reflections on humanity and the struggles and the J0YS of living at a deeper and more poetic level. At times, there is amazing synchronicity with my personal life; especially when lessons are to be learned. When that happens, I pay close attention to the lyrics. However, more often it is the sound/frequency/intention of the lyricist that I am picking up on that support the storylines >> rather than their words. Animal visits in the paintings often show up 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. 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 with my process others will tap into what is "showing up" in their lives as well. Enjoy!

Turkey waltz

Ahhh, Thanksgiving

time reserved purely for reflection--ritual-- fireplace

time intentionally set aside to share nuggets of gratitude with others 

often a surprise by who and what will arrive 

not always the obvious gestures of kindness (perhaps because they were acknowledged in the exchange) but the gestures of challenges that need attention in order to transform for the greater good

I call them "mirror moments"

people show up to help you locate what is suspended in the shadows

~~~If we are reflections of each other ~~~~ what we like in the other lyes dormant in the self

 or the seemingly "dark" qualities wallowing

waiting to be known

sometimes strangers in the mirror 

shedding light on where I am treading 

a familiar face


a visit from bear, owl, hawk, deer, the wild turkeys, aspens or pine

 all mirrors

>> of equal value <<<

 neutrality = opportunity deep in the soil

 owning & growing all parts 

perceived "good"

perceived "bad"

become one

gratitude & reward follow

happy Thanksgiving everyone

much love


 “Joy is the reward, really, of seeking to give joy to others. When you show compassion, when you show caring, when you show love to others, do things for others, in a wonderful way you have a deep joy that you can get in no other way. You can’t buy it with money. You can be the richest person on Earth, but if you care only about yourself, I can bet my bottom dollar you will not be happy and joyful. But when you are caring, compassionate, more concerned about the welfare of others than about your own, wonderfully, wonderfully, you suddenly feel a warm glow in your heart, because you have, in fact, wiped the tears from the eyes of another."

~Dalai Lama book of J0Y



This waltz was played for the Turkeys, hard to tell from the photo, but they are actually waltzing.
