Thanksgiving Day ~ Every Day Prayer~

Thank you for my head, my heart,

Wanting to share some Performance Art from 1986 I did in NEW YORK CITY/ Times Square….

100 Strangers Praying Photobooth 1986 Times Square

I found myself praying (really praying!) in a photo booth, in NYC, on Times Square, 1986.
I really loved the pictures of me praying and started a series of self portraits. My plan was to take a praying self portrait everyday…but then…
I got curious about other people…

Do they pray?

What do they pray for?

And how do they look when they pray?

I started approaching strangers everyday for 4 months to pray with me.

These are some of the pictures from that series at these links:

I wrote a play based on my life in 1994…”The True Life Story Of An Earth Angel”

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:

I’m still traveling back & forth from DC to Lenox!

Both places have displayed voluptuous, abundant,

 bold, breathtaking clouds and skies!

My head was in the clouds everywhere I went!

I couldn’t stop staring at the sky!

I have some excellent pictures of some excellent skies!

Some say …”Stop & smell the flowers

 I’d like to add…

STOP AND SEE THE SKY!

The sky brings me so much JOY!

I really do live for clouds!

YOU ARE BUDDHAFULLTHEARTANGEL BethannShannonTheArtAngel.Etsy.comThe Art Angel

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!
