Running as spiritual practice

I just got turned on to the running episode of Krista Tippet's On Being. You can check it out here, . It was so inspiring to listen to what running means to all the people who were interviewed. I am trying to have a practice of being in my body more, moving more. Running comes and goes in my life, but it does always seem to come back. It can be hard and is something I really love. 

The Offering Project

I am thrilled to announce the launch of a brand new venture today.

It is called The Offering Project.

The Offering Project will span the next 12 months with the unveiling of a new and original painting each month. The paintings will be in a 12 x 12" format, and will be for sale in the SHOP section of this site. I will be posting my progress along the way on Instagram.

The part of this I love the most is that - all proceeds go to charity (translation: I will donate 100% to your pick of 1 of these 3 charities: Trevor Project,  Humane League or the Natural Resources Defense Council.

What do I hope to achieve through this?

1. I create more art on a more consistent basis than ever before.

2. I get to share art with a wider audience. 

3. The money goes to great causes.

Please join me, and watch for the work coming out on the last day of each month. If you like it, donate, and it's yours!
