My newest painting in honor of The Rainbow Warriors
Painted on 3 – 16 x 20 canvas panels – acrylic painting on gallery wrapped stretched canvases
What is a Rainbow Warrior?
When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. They will be known as the Warriors of the Rainbow — Old Native American Prophecy
Raven activates the energy of magic and links it to our will and intention. With this totem, we can make great changes in our life; the ability to take the unformed thought and make it reality.
The raven shows us how to go into the dark of our inner self and bring out the light of our true self; resolving inner conflicts which have long been buried. This is the deepest power of healing we can possess.

Who knew that beyond the silver lining was also a rainbow!
If nothing else this photo is a reminder to hold on when the storm is brewing. The storm will only last for a short period of time and when it has passed and the sky has cleared, the silver lining reveals itself and if we hold steady and remain grounded, we may also get the opportunity to see the rainbow!
I’ve seen many storms and been through all kinds of weather. The silver lining is always there. I may not see it right away, but it’s there. Looking back now at all the storms that have passed, I see more of those silver linings that may have alluded me at the time. The storms often felt unbearable and many times I wanted to just give up. I am glad now that I have held on and that I did not give up. Those storms shaped me into who I am and who I have always been … I just didn’t know it. The storms show us our strengths and what scares us is not knowing just how strong we are. It’s not the storm that causes as much fear as the not knowing. We fear the “what ifs” far more than we fear the “what is”.
The clouds may continue to roll in… but don’t fear the storm, for it shall pass as all the many storms before it.
Hold tight for the silver lining will some day appear and bring with it… rainbows!

You just never know when inspiration will speak to us. I could not turn out my light tonight without writing about this rainbow that from out of nowhere… appeared and lit up my creative soul.
It is midnight and I have to be up at 5am … I am crawling into bed and as I reach over to turn out the light on my bedside table I notice inside one of the crystals lying on my table this beautiful little rainbow hidden inside. I began to think about how that tiny little rainbow inside my crystal is like each of us. We all have that rainbow inside us. Layers of color that decorate our souls. Light from within that tells a story of who we are, who we have been and who we will become.
Think about this little rainbow when you meet others on your journey each day. Think about how we are not just what you see on the outside. We all have so much more to us. Layers upon layers of color inside and a light that is as beautiful as we allow it to be.
Also I want to think about yourself and the rainbow in the crystal…. you are also equally as beautiful. You contain all those many layers of color and light as well. Let your light and those colors shine. Allow others to view the wonders of your soul and don’t be afraid to share your light.
By sharing our light, we encourage others to shine and share theirs as well.. together we can create the rainbow this world needs to improve and become a better, more caring and loving place.
Ok with so much stuff about rainbows today I must .. yes I must blog about it …lol
So have you ever thought about what it is about rainbows that make people stop in their tracks and take notice…. how it makes them feel happy and warm inside and how no matter what is going on in your life.. when you see a rainbow .. you feel hope… have you ever wondered about that?
I bet you thought it was just the many colors in the rainbow and how beautiful it is that did all that…. I know for the longest I thought the very same thing .. it is a natural wonder and beautiful to boot ..
Then one day I asked .. I said silently to myself and the Creator .. What is it about the rainbow?
He said to me.. Silly girl, don’t you see.. it is the bridge to heaven.
And with that one whisper I understood .. enough said.
So if rainbows made you smile before… now you can smile inside and out brighter than before.. because you have the same knowing as I.
