Artist of the Mysteries – Hilma af Klint

I had never been to the New York Guggenheim until last month when I saw the Hilma af Klint exhibit. Seeing her paintings, in some ways felt like a coming home. Born in 1862, Hilma was a spiritual seeker who devoted her life to expressing the mystical realms through painting.  Having discovered Theosophy in my early 20s and Anthroposophy years later, Hilma’s paintings resonated something familiar.

Audubon – Bird Beauty, Bird Help, Gift

Birds bring wings to our hearts with their song, movement and beauty. The language of birds, which if understood by humans, has been told in ancient texts to reveal the wisdom of divinity. Perhaps it is the divinity of their beauty that has inspired some of our most famous artists, especially John James Audubon.

Georgia On My Mind

Georgia O’Keefe was born outside my hometown of Madison Wisconsin in 1887. She lived there until 1902. I recently went to Madison to visit family and friends. On the 6 plus hour long drive home to Saint Louis, I was surrounded by clouds that made me feel like I was in the twenty-four foot long Georgia O’Keefe cloud painting at the Chicago Art Institute.

Ginger Bear Cookies

Each holiday season I make these cookies from a recipe I created that was part of a greeting card illustrated by my friend Hawley Wright. 

Monet’s Garden & Art Magic

I visited Monet’s garden at Giverny in the fall.  I also visited the large waterlily pond paintings in the Paris museum designed by Monet to display them.  Seeing both was the most powerful art and garden experience I ever had.
