Peace Day at the Labyrinth

Saint George Episcopal Church 
24219 Witte Road S.E. 
Maple Valley, WA 98038 

Cole and I were once again invited to paint next to the beautiful labyrinth on September 21st for Peace Day. As people come to walk the labyrinth in quiet contemplation or in fellowship with others, we will be there capturing the joy and beauty of the event. All are encouraged to join. We will have hands-on activities for the kids since it was such a hit last time!

Please invite others. Build a community of peace in your own part of the world!

Cash Mob at Happy Delusions

Sadly, our friend Mary Clymer is closing her store in Renton. Happy Delusions had been a bright spot in Renton as many businesses struggle to stay above water. Mary has given many artists and crafters a place to showcase and sell their work for the last 5 years. August and September will be the last chances to visit and support this great shop. A cash mob is planned on September 25th to show our love and appreciation for Mary. Don't miss it!!!

Happy Delusions

A good Read - The Artist's Rule

Cole Here~

I am enjoying reading the Artist's Rule: Nurturing Your Creative Soul with Monastic Wisdom, by Chirstine Valters Painter.  This book takes a look at where the monastic traditions and creativity intersects.  It is a beautiful book full of interesting techniques for creating a daily creative process.  Pick it up!  Here is one of the new pieces I am working on "Fisher of Men"

Lent - A time to subtract & a time to add

Hello Cole Here -

I am an Episcopalian and we are Lentan people.  In the past few years I have tried to enter this time of stillness with both subtracting some bad habit stuff and adding something to focus on.

I am subtracting - drive thru food!  I hope I can stick to this

I am adding - projects that I have put in the someday pile.  This is my year for everything in it's place.  I hope to finish the studio and start the pantry in the next 40 days.

My first project was to make sauerkraut. So this Ash Wednesday I cleaned up my crock.  Bought a couple heads of cabbage and started some Kraut!

40 Days - What could you focus on?  What would make your life easier & better? What have you put in the someday pile?

Much LOVE!
