Sending Love and Healing Light Painting

Sending Love and Healing Light

I painted this painting intuitively as I often do with my art. Sometimes my paintings feel as if they develop all by themselves and I am just the channel for the creativity. When I was through with it the title instantly came to me as that was what I was feeling from it. It uplifted me and I felt the positive energy radiating from it. I decided to dedicate it to my hubby, Greg, as he was feeling under the…

Especially when Greg doesn’t get a single bite and I get a bunch! I do not like spraying chemically infested mosquito repellent on daily that isn’t natural. So I decided to make my own. Sometimes when you are traveling it’s hard to find the ingredients you need. In the small…
