A Big Beautiful Giveaway

Since it’s the New Moon in Sagittarius, which is popping with sweetness, optimism and divine spark, I thought it apropos to have a gorgeous giveaway.

If you have already purchased A Year of Painting, you get your money back!

As for this New Moon, let your heart’s wishes and desires be spoken and known today and tomorrow at sunrise. Feel the blessing and expansion. You’ve worked hard all year and dove deep into shadow-realm, unearthing the next steps in yours and the collective’s conscious evolution. So it’s time for a little electric celebration–a time to write down, paint, dance and sing the bones of your deepest dreams and visions. Let’s make 2020 the most magical authentic year yet, where living from our hearts comes easy like butterflies dancing on the vine, like the hummingbird gathering nectar.

    I’ve been getting your muse letters and following on IG for some time and have posted there and posted a little collage/painting and tagged you 😀

(I hope this post is not too late – I had a busy holiday) Love your museletters. I usually wait to open them up so I can savor your messages and links. YOUR Oracle deck is divine. I would die and go to heaven if I had a chance to have an ArtBiz mentoring session. But to be in one of your classes would be especially exciting. So many months, I click over to your website, watch every video and think about how I would love to take one class or another. I have not had the money to sign up but hoping that is in my stars for 2020. Wishing you a beautiful holiday. Grateful for your inspiring good spirit.
