Painting & Self Portraits Day

I love photography just about as much as I love painting.

How I Heal Myself Through Art & Creation, Without Even Realizing it!

Each of us has darker aspects of our personalities. I know I do. There is value to EVERY part of one’s personality, and problems really only occur when we are out of balance, when we are out of touch with our Source–our Truth–and those “dark” parts take hold. Art and creating, of any form, has …
