ole's starlight club + so much possibility

when i was in elementary school, my dad owned a bar called
"ole's starlight club" (ole was his dad's name).
he died a few years ago + i received his blue club shirt
+ decided to transform it + sent these drawings, along with his shirt,
 to this sweet birdie blue in australia to work her magic!
+ here's what she did!

woo hoo!

on another ((love)) note,
 i'd love to share with you
the story of when much changed for me
a few years ago... as an example for all of us ~ of how
the impossible simply ~ isn' kelly rae beautifully puts it

listening to you

this lovely artist is
junelle jacobsen

i am Yes and Amen, Junelle Jacobsen ~ an avid photojournalist, prolific sketcher, a wild art teacher and mentor,  mum of boy-men, a nun-in-disguise, and lover of the sheep.  

i am a passionate advocate for playful curiosity and living life through daily adventures ~ i want to see, to experience, to understand and then share the goodness that abounds in this life.  it doesn’t matter if it is sketching, smearing gesso, shooting photographs, biking or hiking, writing prose, or sharing a laugh...whatever helps to see the world anew everyday -- that is my daily work, my call in life.

a huge part of that is learning to live life with open & unclenched hands, follow the divine path wherever it takes me, and remembering to have a bag packed for what’s coming next.  i choose to live life with a “Yes” on my lips, a welcoming heart for new friends, and that *adventure* word scribbled at the top of every day’s list.

+ this lovely artist is
monika welch

i am a mixed media artist, tutor and i own a gallery here in NZ called hot ginger. i like painting woman figures, who are sometimes, strong, playful, haunting, mysterious, .....but all with stories. i like writing stories, writing songs and painting stories...which are always open to interpretation. i love to teach and share the creative LOVE. creating is its on therapy and i feel it is my life's pleasure to teach people to create....and give them permission to play!
