Over the last couple of weeks I've been receiving the images from some of the artists who participated in our worldwide collaboration. It was very exciting to see what other artists created! Shown here is my contribution titled Perfect Peace and Structure. Please view http://www.sheila-kern.com/ArtforHumanity.html to see, hear and enjoy the results. Thanks again to everyone who supported this event!

This Tuesday is the final day of four where we will be joining together as artists with the intention of bringing hope, peace and harmony to humanity. Its been inspiring for me to know and feel that other artists are creating the same time I am, with our hearts in the same place. Thanks to all again for being part of this!
I'll be heading back to Paris with my painting in hand on Sunday night, so I will be back home on the final day of our collaboration. It felt special and different working on my painting here in India, different locations do have different effects. It's been a fantastic experience for me, I'm very grateful!
As I had stated in my first mailing, the artwork deadline for web page is Tuesday, December 2, 2008. Completed work to be sent to me as a jpg image maximum size of 750KB. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm so looking forward to see what everyone has created, as I'm sure you all are as well!

When I began to put the word out about my idea to bring artists together from all over the globe to create art at the same time with the intention of hope, peace and harmony for humanity, I specifically wanted someone in India to participate. Don't ask me why I felt strongly about that, but as it happened no artists from India joined in, that is until this week as I find MYSELF in India! All rather last minute and at the invitation from a friend. So, I'll be painting from Mumbai, India tomorrow! I brought my painting with me, hand carried it onto the plane. Isn't life amazing?
Thanks again to everyone who is participating, looking forward to joining with you again tomorrow!

"Like a ray of light, you are an entity of Love"
Love Without End by Glenda Green
It's no accident that one of our days of joining together with intention falls on Election Day in the USA.
I love the idea of focusing on Hope, Peace and Harmony for Humanity while emotions, tensions, and expectations run high tomorrow. For me, to be in a place of compassion and higher perspective brings me a sense of relief from the intensity and hype. We're feeling it very much here in Europe as I'm sure is the rest of the world, all things being connected and never so much as now!
Thanks again to everyone who is participating, looking forward to joining with you tomorrow!

Artists from eight countries will be joining together for the next four weeks to create art with their intention focused on Hope, Peace and Harmony for Humanity.
I'd like to thank everyone for their enthusiastic response and words of support! Starting on Tuesday, October 28th at 10am EDT we will begin creating our art with an attitude of compassion for yourself and humanity, while holding the vision of creating Heaven on Earth.
Along with artists, there will be people giving their time and support in meditation, prayer and even playing crystal bowls! Alexandria Tyber, creator and founder of a non-profit Arts Center in addition to Three Fish and a Ram Gallery in Cape Cod, MA, is hosting this event locally by opening her arts space and inviting artists to join together and create at her premises during the four dates! Elise Zotos (www.eluvmusic.com) will be joining us by composing music that will be available to be listened to on the page with our artwork. And happily, two artist who are listed under my favorite sites are also part of this collaboration, Bryan de Flores (www.bryandeflores.com) and Daniel B. Holeman (www.awakenvisions.com).
A special note for those of us in Europe, we turned our clocks back an hour today unlike the US where they do so the following Sunday. I'm keeping to the US time as that's where most of the artists are participating. So for those in Ireland and the UK your time will be 2:00pm - 3:00pm and for the continent (Paris time) 3:00pm - 4:00pm. This is for Tuesday, October 28th only!
I'm very excited to be part of this with all of you and grateful for your participation!

I will be actively seeking a physical venue to display what we produce with this intention. It is my hope that in early 2009 there will be a gallery space here in Paris to put together an exhibition of our collaborative works.
I am looking forward to joining together! I also welcome anyone who wishes to be a part of this in any supportive way. By simply being still and focused on our intention and vision during those hours would be a great encouragement and add to our collective force.

Well, it was a great day but I wouldn't go that far. So said Richard Strauss when he first visited Sintra in Portugal, and I recently had that pleasure with my friends Patricia and Don who live near by.
"This is the happiest day of my life. I have traveled to Italy, Sicily, Greece and Egypt, but I have never, ever seen anything which is equal to Pena (the Castle). It is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. This is the garden of Klingsor - and there, up above is the castle of the Holy Grail."
Ever since earliest times, the Serra de Sintra has been magical territory. Roman geographers such as Varro and Columella described it as a "Sacred Mountain." I have to agree, I felt like a child lost in the wonder of a magical place. A fairytale with hidden paths leading in many directions, castles, caves and tunnels, natural beauty and man made.
