I am thankful for the recent Spirits of Joy I took part of with Hannah Marcotti. It was more than prompts. It was a group of women that came together, shared, expanded, challenged and grew together. We became a community. We are still here together. We are still rocking and exploring and creating. It was eye-opening and a very much needed experience.
I’m excited to announced that I’ve won an instagram photography contest with Local Flair magazine of the Poconos. They’ve chosen the photo below to be on the cover of theirÂ August/September issue (the food issue) which is going to print today! I’m so excited and can’t wait to see it in print.
They also asked me to submit a few sentences about myself to go in the publication. I was happy to have the fire lit and here’s what I came up with, thanks to Kerilyn and Dave (for helping!):
Kyra Dosch-Klemer is a web designer and artist striving to expose the natural beauty and simplicity found inÂ ordinary moments. I seek to illuminate the sublime elegance often concealed within the mundane in orderÂ to heighten awareness of the moment through the beautiful stillness and magic that is present in most moments. This is realized through emphasis on the natural state of things.Â I aim to honor the purity in myart as well as in life, whether it isÂ in the musicÂ I listen to, the items in my home, or the foodÂ I feed my family. Purity, as a concept, permeates my life. You can view some of her design work at http://www.whykyra.com.
I really, really, really wish I were registering for SQUAM art workshops this year… It’s about that time. Time to register. And, alas, another year goes by that I won’t be registering. So, I’m making a pledge to myself that this time next year, if freelance is going amazingly well ($$) and if Indira is at a point where she can be mom-free for a few days that I will be registering. I would love, love, love to be there. Art, music, yoga, connectedness. Penelope DullaghanI and Pixie Campbell teaching…. I wanna’ go.
Check out the new paint wall animation by Blu. This stuff is amazing! I can’t even imagine how much planning (and paint) went into this. What’s your favorite part? Mine is the men on the water tower (is that a water tower?)… Check it.
