The name of the fund raising event is perfect for me, Hallelujah Truth, because it has been named, SUMMER SOULSTICE SOIREE, and I applaud the use of the word "SOUL" in place of the prefix "sol." How magnificent to celebrate all of our SOULS at the summer equinox, the longest day of the year! Hallelujah!
|COLOR HOLDS ENERGY. Painting with color is a joyful process! For me, I follow my heart for color choices and love to see what kind of energy is evoked from the calamitous rioting colors. (art by Hallelujah Truth)|
|FUNDRAISING NAMES AND LEVELS REQUIRE PLANNING. WHOOPS! To fulfill its mission as a fundraising sign for both the Summer SOULstice Soiree event and advertising donation levels, I needed to call in planning and...CHIBOOGAMOO's assistance! Here, in this photo, you can see that I have measured out even lines on the mermaid's body and made rows of light and dark turquoise. Now, that is planning! (art by Hallelujah Truth)|
|CAREFUL LETTERING. Hallelujah for CHIBOOGAMOO's careful clear writing! You can now see the donation levels and the cool names of each! Don't you want to be a "Stampeding Pumpkin"? (art by Hallelujah Truth)|

Dear Pilgrims, I painted passionately from Saturday morning to Wednesday morning, examining my interior life while focusing on making this Summer SOULstice Soiree sign for my community garden, Mulberry Fields. When Jesse came by with her truck to take the sign away, I felt happy and sad simultaneously.
Hurray for artists and their art. Hurray for me and my connections to community. My Chiboogamoo and I do not have any children; therefore, our works are our offspring. And when these quickly reared offspring go rapidly out into our communities to lead their own lives, there is an "empty nest" syndrome experience.

However, there is always the next art project and the next blog. And, in this case, there is Mulberry Fields and our garden plot that has been planted with tomatoes, beans, basil, peppers, and eggplant.
That's Coffee with Hallellujah on this day of June 13th, 2013. What will you do today Pilgrims to serve your community and to plant something that will feed your body and soul? SOUL BLOG with me and share your ideas!
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS: Thank you so much SOULMATE, Chiboogamoo!
