spring 2023 greetings friends! New Moon Visions was founded almost 3 decades ago. A few years back, I considered closing shop. But Life (and elders) are subject to CHANGE and a new idea has sprouted… I want to keep going! 
I love my biz, connecting with customers and offering Beauty to the world. 

Thank you from my heart for your support of my artwork over all these years. mara



Where we live

Is no place to lose your wings

So love, love.

No one
Could ever paint
A too wonderful
Of my heart
Or God

translated by Daniel Ladinsky ©1999 The Gift
listen..she will teach..
Where is the door to God?

In the sound of a barking dog,

In the ring of a hammer,

In a drop of rain,

In the face of


I see.

translated by Daniel Ladinsky ©1999 The Gift

listen..she will teach.. copy

Your eye is so wise

It keeps turning, turning

Needing to touch


It keeps turning,

Needing to find a mirror

That will caress you

As I.

And love



"I will,

I will take care of you,"


To everything that is

In the midst of despair, sometimes light breaks thru. Sharing a 2020 painting titled ’Tender Alchemy', an expression of the bursting joy and electric energy felt at a moment of Hope. It is also a symbolic exploration (white plus red equals pink) of how we move from division/polarization into understanding/unity.
