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!

BIG SKY ~ BIG SIGH

THE ART ANGEL (Bethann Shannon)

I’m on the road again!

I’ll be back and forth from DC to The Berkshires for the next 3 months!

My friends & family invited me…and since I’ve been depressed where I’m at now…

…some travel will probably be good for my soul!

Eventually, I hope to land in NORTHHAMPTON, MA. I LOVE it there!

While traveling, I’ll be doing some odd jobs, lots of babysitting, working on a video,

tweaking some books, cartoons & safe sex stuff  I’m working on

and of course…FACE PAINTING!

WOW! KIDS LOVE GETTING THEIR FACES PAINTED!!!

It’s wild! They will wait in 2 hour long lines…patiently!

It ceases to amaze me!

It gives me great joy to make them sooooo HAPPY from such a simple act!

Well, I’m off and those are my summer plans!

P.S. I may not be writing as often…but I’ll be back!

Have A Happy & Safe Summer!

LOVE

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 ~ 5 weeks on the road…

The Art Angel Bethann Shannon painting facesThe Art Angel at Sizdeh BedarBlack Hills Park April 6, 2008Voluntering at Sizdeh Bedar CelebrationI’m just landing from a 5 week art/family and business trip in the DC area. It was really good to get away, as, I have been frazzled.  Yes, art angels get stressed out on earth too! Getting away was just what the doctor ordered! The weather was absolutely beautiful in DC! Perfection! Blessed with good friends & family! Lots of love from sweet children!

I traveled to DC boldly wearing my wings on the Greyhound bus. I handed out pet sperm when appropriate…O.K., if you don’t know me , I make safe sex awareness, sperm shaped products & cartoons… besides promoting peace, love & art…I work for safe sex awareness.

Both my wings and my sperm make people smile…and that makes me feel good.

That’s me in a nut shell!

A big chunk of my trip I helped my friends with their new home & their kids. Had to do taxes & other stuff with my business partner for Widespread Awareness LLC – Safe Sex Stuff.  The rest of my time I rested & visited friends & family.

The highlights of my journey were “THE FREEZE”, against the war, at Union Station. Where at 5pm on March 18th, demonstrators, walking around & looking like regular folk/travelers suddenly FROZE in place for 5 minutes to make a statement to stop the war in IRAQ ( similar to the FREEZE at Grand Central Station organized by ImprovEverywhere).

I’m not sure whom organized this FREEZE, but there was some time confusion…during my 5 minutes of being frozen, someone whispered in my ear “They changed the time to 5:30″…I wasn’t sure if this was a joke or an anti demonstrator or what…weird. Then another person whispered in my ear & I decided it’s true…unfroze & felt a little foolish. I wasn’t alone. Many of us froze at 5pm…we didn’t get the time change message.

I did not wear my wings during the first 5pm freeze but decided to wear them at the 5:30 pm freeze because I noticed many people dressed in costumes. Lots of people wearing PINK from the CODE PINK activists.  Oddly, I happened to have a pink scarf & a pink suitcase! I do support the hard working, pink wearing, peace activists at CODE PINK & get their newsletter via e-mail. It felt good to be part of a peaceful demonstration, with a group of humans coming out to say… stop war & violence.

It was a very peaceful event. I love the silent FREEZING! Very Powerful!

The 2nd big & fun event was Sizdeh Bedar, at Black Hills Park, Germantown April 6th. Celebrating the last day of the Iranian New Year, where it is bad luck to stay indoors! No matter what the weather is…you must be out & have a picnic! I volunteered to paint children’s faces at the event. All day it drizzled and it was muddy! But what FUN! Great music & food and a huge crowd! I loved it!

Hope my friends invite me next year!

Overall, it was a good trip!

P.S. Let’s stop war…PERIOD. Violence hurts us all.

We tell our children to “stop fighting!”…

let’s grow up & find creative ways to solve problems…all violence must end.
