Daily Card for Sharing
Four of Fire 31st May 2012
Completion, change, settlement, successful conclusion as much as a positive beginning, harmony.
My interpretation of the card to share with all...
Something important is drawing to an end, reaching its conclusion. Accept that everything in life has a beginning, middle and an end. Welcome the fact that every situation has its own resolution.
By consciously going through a certain situation all the way, you become capable of finally letting it go completely. As the incense of healing herbs clears stagnant vibrations in the atmosphere, you must let yourself become inwardly empty and clear in order to welcome the new. (If thinking about a relationship this signifies the possibility that may soon change profoundly).
Daily Cards For Sharing
Daughter of Fire 30th May 2012
Self Actualisation, inspiration, love, faith, courage & hope. Innoncence, sincerity, an unwillingness to bind oneself.
My interpretation of the card to share with all ......
Lift up your hearts and let your prayers, hopes, and dreams rise up with the smoke to Spirit. You feel deeply connected with all of creation, thank Spirit for your inner realization. Remember that this oneness of existence includes you and remains intact for ever.
Trust your inner voice your intuition it will guide you. Trust this force
that drives you forward it wants to lift you up like the smoke rising from the sacred herbs. The greater your faith in this force the more surefooted you will be on your journey, your path lies clear before you. Karen
Peace and happiness are available in every moment.
Peace is every step. We shall walk hand in hand.
There are no political solutions to spiritual problems.
Remember: If the Creator put it there, it is in the right place.
The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.
Tell your people that, since we were promised we should never be moved, we have been moved five times.
An Indian Chief, 1876.
Today my most recent painting has been finished. It is a 16 x 20
inch, pastel portrait of Native American Fast Elk of the Sioux. I have used a
mixture of Unison and Sennelier Pastels on a sanded board. The preliminary
sketch is drawn out in charcoal, followed by the initial under painting. The
pastels are then applied in layers and blended with fingers and tools, until the
required depth of colour and tone is achieved. This is built up in stages, and
can take many hours to complete. Some of the stages of the painting can be seen
If you would care to see the completed artwork please visit the New Painting Gallery on the website. Karen

A Mothers Love
The love that a mother feels for her child and that the child feels for its mother, lives on even when the physical link is broken… for all of us who still have our mother with us, cherish her,…..for those of us who are parted from her, look forward but also remember all the love that passed between you and hold it in your heart.
