I like posting this prayer every year around this time. ..I hope you like!

Thanksgiving Day ~ Every Day Prayer~

Thank you for my head, my heart,

my hands, my feet.

Thank you for my shelter and food to eat.

Thank you for my eyes, my nose, my ears,  my voice…

Thank you for my freedom…my freedom of choice!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

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

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!

THE ART ANGEL ~ HEAVEN

SMILEY FACE SKY by Bethann Shannon 2008150-dpi-etsy-frida-by-bethann-shannon-001.jpg

I love the SKY!

The sky is HEAVENLY!

 I live for clouds!

 Each sky I see is a work of art, each with a feeling, each with a story…

some filled with intense drama!

 Some simply like a storybook!

I find great happiness gazing at the sky.

It almost feels like a longing !

When I was 21 I was a flight attendant for TWA.

 It was my favorite job ever…because of the sky !

(and I also love people)…

I was thrilled and excited to be up there! So beautiful!

I found abundant joy in that job…

then I was laid off.

Now, I look up everyday and still think Heaven is just Heavenly!

I paint it when I can and love the painters who paint it well, like Magritte,

and my artist father Joe Shannon…

I started taking daily pictues of the sky this month

and will start a collection of excellent skies!

The 2 places I lived or visited that had the best skies was in

MONTANA, which is called “BIG SKY COUNTRY”…

and ASHEVILLE, NC, called “Land Of The Sky”…

both places had breath taking skies

that put you in a total humble state of AWE!

Third up for me would be San Francisco…

amazing drama with the clouds & fog over Golden Gate Bridge!

OH! THE SKY!

“SIGH”

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

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!
