My First Public Art Showing...The Bowen Center

Anyone who knows me well, knows that I am in LOVE with all things BIRTH. 
I have had lifechanging, wonderful births that have made me feel more connected with my sense of spirituality and magic than any other moments of my life. 

I used to be a labor doula as well because I wanted each woman
 to have a positive birth experience!

So, it only seems fitting that my first public art showing (that is if I have time to make any) will at the Bowen Center for Women's Health. 
 I've finally finished a few pieces that I've shown bits and pieces of in progress over the last couple of weeks.

I'm very excited to get my work out there!  And thanks to my two-time doula and friend, Jamison, who works there, my art with hopefully be inspiring and empowering pregnant women who visit their center. 
(Oops.  that's what my face is expressing after i accidentally had nora at home in a labor tub.
 jamison, the proud doula who saved the day, looks on!)

  Jamison and I have had the best time during the labors and births of my last two children.  We talk and hang out and just totally are in sync

Having a doula was hands down the best decision I ever made to prepare for birth!  It is a totally different experience when you have one!

PS--I finally finished my sister's painting with a quote from the book, She. 

I've decided that I'm going to do a series of paintings based on quotes from that book and hopefully hang some in the Bowen Center.

PPS--Big, Big News to Share Next Tuesday! 
Hope you'll stop back to share some major excitement with us!
