Canyon Road, baby!

I knew when my art did a MAJOR shift, coupled with several mind, body and spirit purges, that my life was getting ready to rearrange in a huge way.

Every time I shift series….my art flies out the window. Until it doesn’t and I paint over those that don’t sell for the next series. Always having fun and creating something.

These are different.

A few sold. But not like usual. They received sometimes upwards of 800 plus reactions on Facebook. With tons of ooo’s and ah’s.

My standard reaction would normally be…oh well.. I gave it my best shot..time to move on…and promptly follow the next squirrel on my path. Always using the paintings that didn’t sell as a base for my new ones.

I could NOT for the life of me even CONSIDER painting over these. Perhaps add color or marks. But NOT the whole painting. They literally have blood (well, not blood), sweat and tears in them. Each one contains messages and lessons.

And depth. So so so many layers. So much letting go of control.

So, I listened to my intuition which said…there is a reason…just fully trust and surrender.

AND continued to create because I felt driven.

My human design says that opportunities must come to me to be truly authentic…I must not seek.

Difficult for a doer.

I meditated. I got lost in my creations. I surrendered.

I could feel something brewing.

It came.

“Interest in your artwork.”

As artists we’ve all received those.

I paused.

The return address was Canyon Contemporary.

Oh holy moly.

I spoke with friends and family and convinced myself…by making SOOO much shit up…that there was no way because of x, y and z.

Turns out, that was definitely about worthiness…after all…this is the NFL for the art world, and I’m highly aware of how many artist submissions are sent there…because I have done it. It’s Canyon Road guys. An artists wet dream.

She called me. We spoke for close to 2 hours…and we could have spoken for 2 more.

She’s doubling her gallery space. She’s decreasing her amount of artists…and adding one.

Her vision for her gallery space is what and why I know art is created from and for…(did that make sense?)

All of my excuses crumbled.. honestly…I’m a bit afraid of this growth…but I know that GUS totally orchestrated the whole shebang because of how it unfolded.

We discussed my excuses and she made me feel safe and addressed my concerns with honesty and integrity.

Turns out…I’m worthy. I’m worthy of being in a gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe. Please hear that I don’t think that I’m all that, etc etc etc. I’m just finally to a place on my journey that…most of the time…I can see the gift of every moment. AND, they keep reminding me to share that THIS is what happens when you have faith and put no parameters on what you are manifesting.

This gallery space is already expanding consciousness….and I am so grateful to be assisting in the shifting of humanity…just by being me.

Plus….I get to go back to my beloved New Mexico.

It looks like 2024 is a huge year for faith, trust, and surrender.

Oh…and guess who the one artist she’s adding is?

three guesses.. first two don’t count.

It’s time to get eyes on this art and the healing vibrations that they carry.

still giddy

might last for a hot minute

makes me so excited for the light

  1. You are so cray cray. Your artwork has been amazing since day 1.
    Have known of you since we both flitted about in a previous timeline. Who knew!!

    My mind is blown watching (y)our universe open up wider and wider with the beauty and endless depth of your art. Each piece created from your soul and a little bit of yo ass. Fighting with your guides as you do. lol

    It’s exquisite and so uplifting. Our world is hungry for this.
    Such a great day!

  2. SO deserved! I am incredibly happy for you, Paula! Not at all surprised, though, that you are finally recognized. Love and hugs to you!

  3. looks like 2024 is a huge year for faith, trust, and surrender.

    Yes! Exactlly!

    We are surfing on the 2024 frequency , no doubt!

    Paula, I think authenticity is our message,no matter how rediculous it seems to us we must share all messages God assigns to us without shame. Being honoured we have been chosen to be the conduit on which such messages get delivered.
    Im a resident in a nursing facility,talk about a rough assignment, lol.
    Guarding the void while each soul makes its transition home.
    We studied most of our lives for
    these moments because we stayed strong,faithful and trusting our gut. How wonderful it is to be seen and loved for staying true to our source. Whoo-hoo!
