I must admit, I find deep peace in my daily routines, which begin with early morning yoga. But not this morning - I woke and rushed off to (art)work right away. It was so special to create ART first thing this morning, with the rising sun, welcoming SPRING in Colorado. It is was refreshing outside, and see the beauty of Mother Nature at the start of the season, the first rays of light.
To join us this morning was this lovely young woman who is part of the sacred feminine art project I've been working on - I adorned her with henna a couple days ago. It is really an incredible experience to explore with each woman what her idea of sacred feminine is, whether with words, art, dress-up or simply feelings. In this case, she was reminded of this lovely velvet cloak she has her in closet but doesn't wear very often. Only occasionally.
Henna and photography present a *unique occasion* to dress up and also undress... many nude images will be in the book I create from this art. The sun rises and turns the clouds gold, orange, and pink, and the light of the new day falls upon this gorgeous woman, who is in her Maiden phase of life, glowing in the morning rays.
I absolutely love all the orange in this photo of her by the lake.
Now, it's time for a nap, and there will be more photos to take this afternoon, more women and children to adorn this evening at a sold out event in Denver. I love my life as an artist.
