Warm greetings friend. The arrival of covid19 has changed everything as we know it.
Individually and collectively, we hold great uncertainty as to how this transition into birthing new patterns will unfold. 
May we honor ALL our feelings as they arise with tender acceptance and compassion.

New Moon Visions SHOP
After 26 years in business, I have decided to slowly bring the ARTGIFT branch of New Moon Visions to a close. 
This transition will be over several years.
With this in mind... many of my artgifts are now offered at very low prices.
All orders receive FREE gifts of appreciation!



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.

translated by Daniel Ladinsky ©1999 The Gift

listen..she will teach.. copy copy

And love



"I will,

I will take care of you,"


To everything that is

Welcome Friends

Blessedly, in the midst of despair, sometimes the light breaks thru. Sharing a recent painting titled ’Tender Alchemy' ©2020, 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.
