Bend Fall Festival
4 & 5 October 2014
I will be in the heart of this pretty city, downtown area, participating in the juried artisan section of this autumn festival. Come out to the eastern part of Oregon, relish in the autumn deserty-scapes, and see art!
Juried artists participate two of the three days.

Open Studios of Beavercreek
10 – 12 October 2014
Friday, Saturday, Sunday
10 am – 5 pm
Again I will be hosted in another artist’s fine space. It is always fun to see folks drive in, and the comments continue to be that this tour is an all around pleasure due to the variety and calibre of art and the exquisite countryside tour. Get your map and list of artists at the site.
I will be hosted at the beautiful property Studio # 7
16342 South Moore Road, Oregon City, Oregon

The thumbnail painting is a detail of a new piece “Saturn Comes To Port.” Not yet published, as there is one more line of paint to add in its ‘just there’ position. So, I sit with it as I do other studio work, gaze on and contemplate, feel into its composition and what Saturn and I are saying. My comfort zone was challenged with its vertical dimensions, as I adore the square which accommodates the circle so beautifully. Yet, Saturn is afoot, and the lessons of material structure and building needed more than psychological attention–they needed an art piece! And, true to myself, the edges are soft and the tone is gentle. I work King Saturn along with him working me!

Have you been considering collecting one of my
nature spirit art pieces?
Not sure of the color, design, vibration for this or that wall?
I will send you a downloadable printable image which you can
carry around your sacred office or home space,
assessing the right placement for your
purchase of original art.
Let me know!!!

I hope to see you at any art events, and hear your story of the day, and speak about art!
New work is published on the amazing internet, http://www.CherilynSunRidge.com

Before and After Nature Spirit Earth Poetry

Before you experienced “it” and after you experienced “it” are seamless in the ways of the constellatory configurations.

It is all a matter of loving the depths and the heights of the experience, the encounter, the neurological underpinnings of nature spirit earthy creative acts of dreaming/breathing/acting.  In the natural and primordial ways of living, the living into and through the experience is all there is.  These were the energies of living in the resonance of the Fir tree as the above piece evolved.  

FIR IN SWAY

“Regal,

subtle ruffle of needles
Exploring existence on flat or slope
Unspoken determination
to dance with Gaia’s breath–
And dance she does.
Swaying, bending, scratching.
Seizing purchase,
to be formed and reformed and twisted,
while anchored, rooted, nourished.
The internal network adores this
external manipulation.
Feeling and knowing,
acknowledging and accepting.
The referred internal twirl creates sense of new and
restores sense of eternal ancient.”
©Cherilyn SunRidge, “Fir In Sway”

The personal and universal commitment is simply
doing your Self in your Truth.
