THE ART ANGEL – MY DAILY “THANK YOU” PRAYER ~

THANK YOU!
THANK YOU!

Ever feel sorry for yourself? Dive into a “pity party”? This is a prayer I wrote about a year ago to remind myself how lucky I really am…it actually really helps me put things in perspective…

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 ears, my nose, my VOICE…

THANK you for my FREEDOM…

MY FREEDOM OF CHOICE!

P.S. It’s fun to say this prayer with children & touch your head, hands, feet, eyes…etc & act out shelter & food to eat! (Try it!)

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,

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!

Discover artist Bethann Shannon and support her run across country for peace wearing her angel wings. She will be making a documentary during this cross country event and interviewing people about peace. Bethann, dressed as THE ART ANGEL, will bring people together doing collaborative art with strangers. Bethann believes that ART is a great outlet for anger and violence. Whether the art comes in the form of dance, music, writing,  paintings or sculpture…anyone can do it and benefit from it. Bethann believes the more people engage in some form of art, the more peace will be on the planet.

It is Bethann’s mission to leave a message of LOVE…bottom line.

Support her mission/ documentary and producing her play by shopping at one of her shops online!

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!

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!
