Holiday buzz...Winner announced!

Hi Everyone! 
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. We celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas, so there were lots of festivities going on around here. That is my official excuse for not announcing the winner of the Soul Food 2015 Giveaway on the 22nd as originally planned. As soon as family arrived, and the hustle and bustle of the last few days leading up to Christmas ensued, finding a few moments to get online seemed to always get pushed further down the to-do list! Now that the presents have been opened, guests have departed, and the only busy-ness to do is plan the snacks for New Year's Eve, I'm back on the blog to announce the lucky winner! 

With the help of my lovely assistant (my daughter) we carefully placed all of the names into a hat (appropriately a Santa hat!) and she drew out the name....Priscilla Hawkins!! You are the lucky winner who will be joining us for Soul Food 2015.  You should be receiving a notice from Heather shortly at Soul Food with all the details.

A special thank you to everyone who entered. Registration begins January 1, 2015, check out the Soul Food facebook page here for more details and chances to win. Looking forward to seeing you in 2015!

Seeing what others cannot

Spirit Owl by Shari Sherman, ©2014, acrylics on canvas

Today, I'm getting ready for a painting workshop that I'm doing later this afternoon. We will be painting the above Spirit Owl. I base these spirit animal workshops on native american animal medicine and the awareness of the animal's characteristics and the power of this knowledge to guide us. Everyone is probably familiar with the owl's image as a "wise" creature who is often used as a symbol for wisdom. But what is it that makes this bird so wise?  It is no secret that owl's eyesight is keenest at night. It hunts in the darkness. It can see what others cannot. It has the ability to see the most in the darkest hour. When we look at it this way, we can easily see how it might benefit us to sharpen our senses and see what is happening when darkness falls upon us. Often the darkness that we feel in life is a necessary part that gives way to light. Notice the contrast. Value that there is much to learn in the darkness... if we can appreciate that there is just as much abundance in the darkness as there is in the light, if you embrace the power of seeing what others cannot.

Mermaids Drink Free!

This is a mermaid that I painted recently during my "How to Paint a Mermaid" workshop called Bubbles and Bubbly! I embellished it with a super cute painted and glittery starfish which adds some extra dimension to this she needs it! This would be awesome hanging behind the poolside bar or at the beach house.  I'm offering it for a special price to my friends and followers before I list it on ETSY at the end of the week, $65 plus $10 shipping (continental US only-we can work something out for others). Message me if you would like to have her (or give her as a gift)!

Lovebeams Mermie Lovers!

Oh P.S.:  It is acrylic on canvas measuring 10" x 20" and comes ready to hang.
