January 2007 has been a truly fabulous and action packed month for me. I am officially incorporated in the state of California, licensed with the city of Los Angeles to both sell paintings AND give clairvoyant readings. 13 paintings I sent to Chicago will be in a show there this weekend. I'm hanging another show this Friday in West Hollywood. I'm giving readings next week to several women I met at the Sundance Film Festival. I'm in another show in Pasadena this spring. Life is good.
Two weeks ago I met with an amazing man named Calvin Goodman who has been working with artists and art dealers for 40-plus years. He wrote a very well known book called 'Art Marketing Handbook', which is packed with useful information. Calvin was very validating and informative; seeing him helped me to blow a great big picture about the value of what I do. I am taking a step as an artist, and working on BEING SEEN.
90% of the people I've given readings to lately are working on this same issue. Whatever they may ask, it often comes down to being safe enough, validated enough, having permission, etc... to be seen. Can you be seen as being capable, talented, beautiful, psychic? Do you have permission to stand out, to shine? Can you think of yourself and what you want first? It always seems more fun to me to be able to define for yourself how you are seen, rather than let something else do it for you.
At the Sundance Film Festival this month I met so many amazing people. The whole event was about seeing and being seen. A 10 day party, though I was only there for 4. Filmmakers, actors, producers, celebrities, movie lovers, et al.
While there I met a woman from Portland named Jenn who, after hearing my name, told me she'd heard of me. A former client of hers had seen my website and loved my work, telling Jenn about it. Jenn had lost the information until she met me. Her whole face changed as she told me this. It was a very cool experience for me, wow! I have never been to Portland. Of course I gave her my card.
I will be visiting Chicago in early March, and I am booking readings now. If you will be in Chicago then and want a reading with me, email me for an appointment.
