Last Week of June 2015

All in all I feel this has been a very good art and emotional month for me. I did miss two days (the 13th and 30th) of gluebook pages but feel just fine with that. I also traveled to Salem, Oregon for six days at the end of the month but was able to keep to my practice.  So here are the final pages for June 2015.  I've added a bit more description for those curious souls who asked.

Thresholds
June 24, 2015
This is the threshold to the awakening I am venturing.  It is ancient and earthy and I need to trust the deepest parts of me to continue my quest.  This is the clay and mortar of our souls that goes deep, holding us altogether.


What Resonates?
June 25, 2015

Who looks outside, Dreams Who looks inside, Awakens.  In  looking for my true nature, I'm cracking open and shattering the old seeds and reflections I've been holding on to. Looking to find the music in me. I'm ready to finally live my intended life.


Underground Shadow Temples
June 26, 2015


These are my Shadow Temples.  They are layered and go deeper and deeper into my Underworld.  My shadows, also known as Anima, live here. They are sacred places.  We visit only occasionally, if ever, in an effort to find hidden meaning in our lives. They are places of boundless beauty and veneration.

Compassion
June 27, 2015
 
The birds signify dreams and ideas I thought were long gone, categorized and filed away.  I have undeniable compassion for these things as I find my way awake.  It’s with the awe of innocence that I can bring these dreams and ideas to full bloom.

Sunken Treasure 
 June 28, 2015
 
I say; “Alleluia!!!!”  I have detected treasure within myself and there is true value here!  Most of what I’m finding is ancient and useful. Thank you! Ancestors.  I am still sorting and finding more and could be for a long while.  I realize my adventure has only begun.

 Seek Tranquility
June 29, 2015

I know that no matter how far I may travel or how deep I may dig and no matter what I find, I need to seek tranquility along the way. This is finding beauty in my life to rest in as often as possible.

Thank you for visiting and feel free to comment.

Peace,
Ellie

Siapo Desgin Greeting Cards

What I've been up to lately!  Greeting Cards!! I have created some greeting cards that are near and dear to my heart. 

They will be available at my brand new Esty shop called AliiTasiStudio, opening at the end of September 2016.  
My greeting cards are one of a kind. There are no two exactly alike. In this series they are hand made from recycled tea bags and stamped with my hand carved stamps using archival inks.Each tea bag is a piece of signed original art.
I was inspired to create these cards by my Samoan ancestors and from living with Siapo hanging on the wall of my bedroom as a child.They are reminiscent of traditional hand pounded Siapo, also known as Tapa, made from Mulberry Tree bark.There is a long history of Polynesian Tapa in Oceania.Siapo was/is used as an element of value, given at Births, Weddings, Funerals and important ceremonial gatherings involving High Talking Chiefs and Village Chiefs..I would love to include you in the tradition of giving Siapo as a valued gif…

Grace Hudson Museum

The gift shop at Grace Hudson Museum is now carrying my AliiTasiStudio greeting cards!!! Yay for me!!!

Wikipeida has this to say; The Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah, California is adjacent to the Sun House where artist Grace Hudson and her husband resided until their deaths. The house and museum are owned and operated by the city of Ukiah.
Returning to California, Grace and John Hudson lived the rest of their days leading a modest bohemian lifestyle of collecting, traveling, field work, reading, entertaining, photography and painting based in The Sun House in Ukiah, a Craftsman-style California bungalow they designed and had built of redwood in 1911. The Hopi sun symbol was adopted by the Hudsons as their family symbol; the Sun House displays the emblem prominently over the door. John Hudson died there in 1936.
With no children of her own, Grace Hudson left The Sun House and its land to her nephew, Mark Carpenter. Carpenter preserved the house and its 30,000 collected objects fo…

To Be Organized!

My old and favorite blog, artstudio49.blogspot.com has evolved to contain my ART as a clearinghouse of sorts.  It’s what I think will keep me organized, and possibility even sane.  I have joined forces with several online artist/designer-selling platforms. 

These companies manufacture, ship, and pay the Artists/Designers an agreed upon stipend for the use of their digital files containing the artwork.

I won’t get rich or even famous but these platforms are a way to get my work out into the universe or even just the virtual universe.

First in line is Fine Art America, which I joined last year.  My art is in a state of flux and I’m giving birth to new and different kinds of art everyday.  Fine Art America is a great place to start keeping it all categorized, as you’ll see in my shop.  I have uploaded; Collage, Paintings, Photos and Digitally Altered Collage and Photos.  You can get to my shop Me at Fine Art America
Redbubble is similar to Fine Art America in that you can purchase Wall Art…
