Is it a nun? A sailor? Or a man with a prayer cap in an archway?

THE ART ANGEL has landed in Northampton, MA

Finally! I have landed! I’ve been traveling back & forth from Lenox, Ma to DC area all Spring & Summer…

living out of a suitcase! I’m pooped!

Happy to settle in for awhile…I’ll be hitting MAIN STREET wearing my wings & doing cartoons for people,

for donations & selling my art as THE ART ANGEL!

I hope to raise money for my documentary “Message-We’re All Writing This Story”…where I’ll be dancing across country wearing my wings for PEACE! AND doing art with strangers!

I’m back doing “CANVAS DANCE” ™, Paintings For Peace workshops! YEAH!

I’ve actually started another blog dedicated to this workshop: http://www.canvasdance.wordpress.com

I have several newspaper articles about CANVAS DANCE but only found this one so far:

So, I’m here…Northampton, MA.!

I’ll be leading a CANVAS DANCE ™ Friday November 14 at Hay Market Cafe…

A "Canvas Dance" (tm) by Bethann Shannon & Stewart Prather

I LOVE this town!

I’m still in boxes, so, I can’t share any photos from my adventures in the last 4 months…but soon!

I just wanted to say I’m back & hope to write regularly soon!

LOTS of LOVE people!

The bottom line is LOVE…

THE ART ANGEL~How to make GOD laugh…

Painting by Bethann Shannon

You want to know how to make God Laugh?

Tell him your plans!

Old joke…I know… but it still rings so very true! I know, personally, I made a whole bunch of plans in my life…but GOD, (The Universe, whatever the name!), had other plans for me…so, as usual, I surrender to this path and continue to trust this process & remain grateful & and think positively, even through difficult times…

especially

through difficult times.

THE ART ANGEL ~ You Are Buddha~Full

HELLO! I’m back from DC and will start posting pictures of my adventures with wings…

I’m also back to work on my on-line shops and I’ve posted some new products on:

www.TheArtAngel.ETSY.com

Including a limited edition of my trade marked slogan:  “YOU ARE BUDDHA~FULL” bumper-stickers.

ETSY is really a fabulous place to shop! Go there if you haven’t already!

Well, on a personal note, I hope to be more public with my wings this year and continue with my documentary.

It’s called “MESSAGE~ We’re All Writing This Story”. I will be running (& dancing!) across country wearing my angel wings as a symbol/ message of peace. Along the way I will be interviewing strangers and getting their take on the possibilities of peace on earth. I will also do collaborative art with strangers called “Canvas Dance”.

I will have several pairs of wings for people to sign & write their “message”. I will also be passing out hearts to all I meet… to remind them of the sweetness & power of love.

I am currently researching grants for women artist & film. If you have any resources you can share with me, I would be so grateful! I am also looking for sponsors.

Going to & shopping at my ART ANGEL shops is a way you can support my mission as well!

Thanks for visiting!

Hi! I’m back from the DC area, where I was able to take care of some business, see some friends and family AND run around wearing my angel wings! I got some photos & film to add to my documentary, which once I get some technical help, I’ll post some pics of my adventure with wings!

I LOVE wearing my wings in public! People are 98% of the time grinning severely! This time I carried paper hearts with me & handed them out to people who smiled at me or stopped to talk.

At one point I was at Union Station in DC and had to kill 7 hours! I walked around a lot, so, many people saw me. At one point I sat down & started drawing …when I turned around I  found 4 children staring at me. They  started asking me questions…5 minutes later, I had 8 children sitting with me…all drawing with me! It was so cute!

I’m kind of a kid magnet…with or without the wings!

People were very kind and gave me FREE things! I was at Port Authority, Union Station & on the MARC train. Sometimes on this trip the world seemed magical.

I’m now back in The Berkshires and putting all I got into feeling healthy & happy! Updating my ETSY.com shops & Cafepress.com.

Unfortunately, I’m still dealing with my legal issue of my business flooding…almost 5 years ago! It’s so stressful to carry the financial burden I was left with! Hopefully, it won’t go on another year!

In the meantime, I just want to be POSITIVE and live my life in health & love!

I send BIG Wishes & Big Kisses to all in this NEW YEAR!
