…..As curator of the Gallery of Enlightenment at CHHC!

The remarkable element of spirit is….wait for it……………. you put something out there and watch and feel what happens!!!

I have always held a vision of bringing many different artists together to display transformational and soulful work. This is the case with the gallery that I am now a curator of at Community Holistic Health Center in Lafayette Colorado. Truth is, this is not any little “ol” gallery. This gallery is filled with incredible art, straight from the heart.

Each piece in the gallery, including those of yours truly, is hand picked in an incredible process through word of mouth and also yes indeed the web and craigs list!!! I look for art and artists that speak to my soul, that are resonating to the frequencies and the devotion of spirit in our evolving process of awakening.

I frankly, am passionate about the idea of a gallery that enriches, transforms and empowers people to develop their psychic awareness. With that being said, CHHC currently has 16 artists on board who represent a unique facet of artand who are allowing us to expand our vision, our delight and sense of wonder. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I encourage all of you to drop by CHHC, 409 S. Public Rd. in Lafayette and check out our gallery and see what I mean.

Our next art night out is Sept. 21st from 6-9pm. I feel that you too will be enriched by your experience and maybe find a piece of art that speaks volumes to you and that resonates with your soul! Ps. Community Holistic Health Center is non profit community based on Sacred Commerce. We have wonderful practitioners, classes, and meditations to also attend to your physical, mental, and spiritual needs. We are open Tues. -Sat. from 10-6pm www.communityhhc.org

An Incredible Opportunity to Stir Your Painters Soul!!

Have you ever wanted to paint in the zone?! Have you felt that your paintings and subject matter have become uninspiring? Do you lack that next step to take you outside the “ creative box”? If you answered yes to any of these questions then do I have the class for you. This class is brought to you by the angels…no kidding!!! I have been given a grace filled opportunity to teach with a master painter and soul friend, Gary Markowitz. In orchestrating this, the angels have created a remarkable intuitive painting program guided by myself and Gary over an October weekend in beautiful Boulder Colorado. I can say with all of my heart that I have felt this bursting light to help others to develop their inner psychic guide and become aware of their luminous sparkle, their creative edge, their divine light! This is one not to be missed if you are hungering for more awareness and intuition in your artistic process…. you can go to the website www.ilovepainting.wordpress.com for more info

Sometimes for me the starting of a painting is the a strong challenge. Egads!!! I already have scared myself out of painting before I even get started. True for you too! Have heart. As in life it only takes going to the next step. Just dip the brush in your paint and begin. Have faith. Know that like life, this too is just the process and if you get caught up in trying to figure out the end result, then the magic might get lost. Sometimes it’s more important to not know and trust…..breathe, call on your guides, angels, beings of love who have always been with you and take the leap. Remember it’s only that next brushstroke, and the next, and the next….and the n e x t.

Ancient Callings

 

Ancient Callings is a lesson is humility.  More and more I find that I must surrender to a greater knowing when I am called to paint.  This was the case with this painting.  The process required a deep listening of my known landscape to reach out and touch the ancient, sacred calling in a Divine ceremony of renewal and transformation.

The Juicy Fruits of Life!!!

It is still amazing to me how these seemingly small connections in life are the seeds of amazing and fruitful future encounters! In 2010, I became a founding member of a website that memoralizes, through art , a loved one who has died. The website is called Bereavement Artists- http://bereavementartists.com/ The idea and brainchild of this was formed and created by myself and two beautiful healing artists, Gina Klawitter and Anita Larson of Denver Colorado.
This was something that we are passionate about and still continues to this day under the leadership of Gina and Anita. As a result of this work the three of us were noticed by Renee Phillips, a successful Artrepreneur Coach of Manhattan Arts International in Manhattan New York. Our mission to help others cope in their bereavement process through memorializing a loved one through art was one of many that were featured in her book “Artists Who Inspire”.
I have since moved on from the Bereavement Art Group but it is still going strong. . If you want to memorialize a loved one with art in painting, jewelry, ceramics, collage etc. this is a jewel of a resource to go to. I am proud to say that I helped in hand picking these beautiful talented souls for this process. More juicy fruit……….as of today, I have been selected one of 44 throughout the country to be a featured online gallery artist for the month of May-June in Manhattan Arts International, Celebrate the Healing Power of Art.
This was a juried competition offered by the one and same Renee Phillips, director of Arts International, , as well as Edward Rubin, New York based arts writer and curator, and Nancy Reyner, artist/author and instructor. I believe this online gallery reveals works of art that best express the nature of transformation and healing through the powerful vehicle of art.
Here is a link: www.manhattanarts.com/Gallery/Healing-Power-of-ART/Winners.htm My painting which was selected by this committee is called “Another Angel Gets Its Wings”. My interpretation of a soul moving on to greater heights and the celebration of That!

I fully rest in the belief that art should inspire and move a soul deeply to the greater awareness of self. You can also check out my passionate process at www.livingworksstudio.com Woo hoo!!!! What goes around comes around in the most magical of ways! As I want the paintings to expand and be seen in the greatest possible way, I do feel that this is a wonderful fruit to come from a tiny seed. May all of our most passionate and heartfelt creations turn into the juiciest of fruits!!!

The Spring of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride!!!

Spring is finally here……and with it comes the move for our co-op Uniquely Natural and many new classes. This feels like a time of such heart connection and celebration. Do you too feel like you have been on Mr. Toads Wildest Ride! Well join the crowd. I am painting like there is no tomorrow…come to think of it…there is no tomorrow …only the present moment. There is a wonderful teacher named John Kadela who is coming to facilitate Akashic Records classes Level I and II…… for all interested souls around the 1st of June. Also to be offered is a Mandala workshop. With all of the new goings on at the co-op, you will just have to check in and see what is up next.

Otro dias en paraiso!!! Another day in paradise.
“This painting is called Illuminated Self and was done for two beautiful healers in Mt. Shasta.

Back from Mexico and so Ready for 2010! Bring it on!

 

As I write this, I am truly in awe and amazed that so much has been accomplished this year. I am grateful to have so many dear ones to support me on this continuing journey.
I have now officially launched the memorial icons and made my work available in print form. Hallelujia!
The painting that I have posted called “Angelus Harvest” is going to be on the cover of Natural Awakenings magazine for January. She came in a vision as an angel of prosperity and abundance – it is time for all of us to reap the harvest of our labors!
My intention this year is to bring the paintings to a wider audience and continue to create from this divine place of energy and healing. You can call me if you see something you can’t live without or email me at teresadunwell92@msn.com.
The co-op continues to prosper and grow. It is almost a year old and going stronger than ever. I feel blessed to be part of a team of very talented practitioners, artists and soulful people. We continue to expand and morph into our mission to make a difference in our community and in each others lives. I encourage you to click on our link and meet some of the members. http://www.uniquelynatural.com/
Many blessings to all of you and to all a good day….just had to say that! So in the spirit of the season I wish you a warm cozy place to light and good food and friendship.

Sacred Dance

In every experience, there is a cosmic dance… One lives to give glory and celebration through the movement of the body creation.

This painting which was done in 2003 depicts the universal oneness of energy through the heart. The dance creates a window into the heart which accesses creativity, inspiration, and the purification that lies within each individual. see the post “panorama” for more info on prints.

Who I am and What Inspires Me…And the Memorial Icon Debut!

Bio

Greetings and welcome! I am Teresa and I live in the foothills of colorful blue sky Colorado.

My journey with art has been about the bridging of spirituality with the power, passion and vibrancy of color. Over the last 20 years, I apprenticed with a world reknown Hungarian visionary artist and learned the alchemy of Renaissance painting. This process has opened many doors and allowed me to create luminous, radiant color. My work has allowed me to paint with my heart and soul, and to help others discover their divine nature within.

Over these many years, I have been led into working with transformative energies having to do with rebirth, celebration and afterlife experiences. I paint specifically on a prepared wood surface. My inspiration comes from an interior silence that flows bringing on all the wonders of magical, mystical, and the angelic.

An interior direction has led me to create a form called the ” Memorial Icon” to celebrate and honor a loved ones’ life after they have passed on.

I invite you to join me in this healing process to honour their spirit. I use a very extraordinary Renaissance process, adding your loved ones’ cremation ashes and exquisitely blended essential oils to the work . Your painting is then created as a remembrance of your loved ones’ spirit which can be honored, celebrated, and passed on from generation to generation.

Thank you for stopping by… enjoy these images in the joyful heart, gratitude and light that they were painted in and I welcome the opportunity to help you to create a sacred space for yourself, beloved person or your companion animal.

I have my paintings in many healing venues throughout the world. For more info. you can contact me at teresadunwell92@msn.com and see further work at www.angelfire.com/art2/tcd
