Why did I paint We Are Here To Love?
I felt this was an awesome way to start 2018. I started painting the 100 pieces of art right after Christmas and for the whole month of January. 2017 was kind of an intense year for a lot of us. I wanted to start the new year on a positive note - what's more positive than LOVE and making art?
What are the Make 100 Paintings?
Each painting is on 5x7" canvas. Most of them are acrylic paintings however, I love experimenting and playing with color. I created a few different abstract varieties. I will posting random pictures of different styles throughout the campaign.
- Series l - Acrylic / Horizontal
- Series ll -Acrylic / Vertical
- Series lll - Mixed Media
- Series lV - Oil Painting
- Series V - Collage
You select the series and the paintings will be randomly selected for you. Once the campaign is completed, I will send an email to everyone, asking for a suggestion for their personal affirmation. I love writing affirmations for people!!
Humanity needs Love.
My hope is these paintings will remind you to keep your heart open. No matter what else is happening, it is important to keep an open heart.
What does the campaign fund?
My public art project, the Magic Passion Love (MPL) Manifesting Mobile, a vision/dream board for humanity. The hanging mobile is a collection of cardboard circles that people have shared their wishes and intentions for themselves and the world. The circles are hung on a string in a room so people may walk through the strands. The intention for this project is to show how everyone really wants the same thing. The thing we need most is Love!
I traveled with this project in 2012 across the United States. After returning to Savannah, I spent the next few years getting grounded in my new town. Now that I have a place to live, an art studio and a great community, I am ready to take the Manifesting Mobile to the next level. I feel like it is a perfect time to activate Magic Passion Love with more people!
- According to health studies, many people are feeling the effects of stress. Stressed about politics, finances, injustices and the future. There are so many ways to be reminded of what to fear or hate in this world.
The Manifesting Mobile and these 100 pieces of art are ways to remind ourselves to LOVE. There is more power in LOVE than hate.
I am excited to share that I have a exhibition booked this March. The Mobile will be part of a collaborative art show in Beaufort, SC. This show will be the first time there will be a sound healing element to the art project. The ambient sound will allow the viewers to enjoy a walking meditation while reading the circles. I believe when more people are able to experience a walking meditation through the Manifesting Mobile, this will help raise the positive energy vibration of our planet.
My goal is to take the Mobile to every state and potentially around the world. This project is a collaborative project. I am currently working with some friends. If you would like to co-create with me - call me!
I am a community activist. I believe in the power of thinking globally and acting locally. I am currently the festival director for the Savannah Earth Day Festival. All of my work is funded by people and businesses who see the value in collaborating with each other. I am grateful to work with a lot of people who LOVE our planet and want to protect it.
Part of the intention of the Manifesting Mobile is to give people opportunities to get involved in their own communities. When the Mobile is on view, I invite community organizations to be involved. Because we are here to LOVE and to take responsibility for what we LOVE.
There are many kinds of LOVE – sister love, brother love, romantic love, pet love, city love, friend love, nature love, spiritual love, human love. This series reminds us that we must LOVE one another – especially those who we do not like. In order for us to make real change, we must LOVE everyone.
LOVE is the key to creating more peace in the world.
More LOVE means more peace of mind. The world needs more peaceful minds.
We are here to LOVE.
Your are here to LOVE.
I am here to LOVE.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact me. I look forward to creating affirmations and sending my art to all of you!!
