Currently we are in 150 countries around the world with events celebrating Love Day. May 1st Annually celebrate on an incrementally larger scale:  Next year as we gather momentum, we will have events all around the states and we won’t stop until eventually reach and connect every country with simultaneous events on Global Love Day. We will create the the largest collective art/light/human collaboration with all of the world as lighting up in a series of dots circling and connecting the Earth in a giant heart circle to be seen from space.

Full Moon Series – 30 Moons in 30 days

The moon is my muse and a “star-lost” love of mine who I run to night after night. It seemed natural to sync up with the lunar calendar and paint a entire series of her and also appreciate each stage of the moon. I started this series on July 2nd with the first full moon and completed these along with the moon cycle ending on the blue moon July 31st.

There are so many different instances that inspired these different moon paintings through out the month. I will write more about these individual inspirations in the descriptions of the paintings. I have enjoyed becoming preset to the subtle changes and energy shifts inside of me and how the moon cycles effect me. Please email me directly at melodyowensart@gmail.com for any questions/ inquires on purchasing any of these moons.

Moving to the Heart This Full Moon ♥ ♥ ♥

Another celebration calls, I am so happy the full moon is almost here! Tomorrow, March 5th the moon will be in full bloom, giving us another cycle and opportunity to reflect and grow, as all things are amplified with the full moon. This time of month always serves as a reminder for me to be aware of the state of mind I am in and what thoughts and actions I have been choosing, as everything is amplified, so is my state of being. Sometimes the ride is more rough than others. Good news, nothing is permanent and we always have a choice and a hand in creating our future. Here’s to renewing my vows of consciously choosing love in every thought, action and decision as continual, ever evolving daily practice ♥ Cheers! My Intention for this full moon: To truly “See the Bigger Picture- which does not paint one side as right and the other side as wrong, but is able to see the Light and shadow of all parties or parts involved so that the full picture is illuminated- We can experience deep healing and release at this Full Moon” ~Quote from Mystic Mama

Figure Studies & Gesture Drawings

Figure Drawing with the family!
I love visiting my family, full of talented artists and excellent models. It still mystifies me how I was so lucky to be born into such a creative hot spring of a family where we all share the same passion, love and talent for art. It was my brother Skyler’s last request to spend his last few days with us together drawing each other, rotating modeling while the rest draw in a circle. He left to Indianapolis for two years for us, and I am so glad we got to spend a few hours in pure artistic bliss – time has not gone by so fast as when you are with the people you love so much doing what you love so much.
Here are a few of my favorites sketches from that session:


More to come! My sister and I are attending a figure drawing session at another artist’s local studio tomorrow, excited for another day 🙂
