 CANDYcolored studio podcast episode 236:

are you familiar with valerie hudson’s work on the two trees in the garden of eden? she talks about their symbolizing our heavenly father and mother, their roles, purpose, mission and how it connects to adam, eve, and we their children. mcarthur krishna, artist and author of the “girls who choose god” and “girls/boys guide to heavenly mother” books, has curated artwork with the them of “heavenly parents”. yes, a book will be coming later with the artwork, but this time she is starting with the artwork. i cannot wait to see what the artists have created. hear about the piece i’ve just completed for the show – the symbolism and all the background thoughts that went into creating this painting.

how do you feel about the moon? are you fascinated with its phases and how it so beautifully interacts with nature? did you know that there was a time (and there are still some cultures) that followed a 28 day, 13 month calender? how would that change the way you interact with nature?  what would that look like for women and their typical 28-day cycle? what would it be like to have the same days of the week fall on the same 4 dates each month? would that alleviate stress & anxiety? if dec means 10, why is it the 12th and final month in the year and oct means 8 when it  represents the 8th month? and what if the beginning of the year was really in springtime and april? what is april fools anyway?

what are your hopes and dreams for 2024? how’s it going so far? are you as big into tweaking your plans and systems as i am? i’ll share some of my ongoing goals, hopes and dreams personally & in my art business and wish you the very best in this coming year!

let's chat about all things adam & eve, how we can learn from their journey and what blessings do we enjoy because of their Fall? i've been researching across different of christian thoughts as well as from a messianic jewish perspective too. so many different feelings and impressions...some scientific, some symbolic...all led me to deeper possibilities -- ultimately, making the old testament feel alive and new in a way.
