Awakening Your Spirit Art Fest

On March 7th one of our most favorite stores, you guessed it, Diggin' It! was host to the Awakening Your Spirit Art Fest.

Kelly Bartlett's art requires the use of pencils, pens, markers, and a TON of patients.  Kelly creates mandalas using words (which she holds classes for at Diggin' It), as well as images.  She also creates very detailed and brightly colored pieces including the intricate moths and butterflies that you see in front of her.

Ka Horne will create a special painting just for you.  These custom paintings are generated from a relatively short sitting with Ka involving you choosing the colors for your painting and, through a physical connection with you, a personalized message which she writes around the frame and back of the piece before starting to paint.  The result is a very personal abstract painting done while you sit and talk with Ka.

At the AYSAF there was also a community art project involving butterflies.  Kelly Bartlett drew out several butterflies and visitors were asked to choose one and color it however they wanted.  After the Fest these butterflies will be used to create a single piece of art which will then be gifted to a facility of the group's choosing.
