Your choice of:
– Inward Journey – this pose is called the Eagle Pose. One of the chakras it helps open is the third eye chakra. The third eye chakra is associated with intuition, self awareness and selflessness. The coordinating color for the third eye chakra is Indigo (dark blue purple). You will find indigo colored accents within the border flowers of this artwork. A crystal helps highlight the 3rd eye area.

Great gift for those in your life that love not only yoga but all things natural, calming and centering.

– Speak Your Truth – A great reminder to listen to our inner knowing and speak up when we need to. This message is taken from the Plow Pose print. The plow pose helps activate the throat chakra and is associated with personal expression, creativity, addiction, criticism, faith, decision making choices and lack of speaking up. The coordinating color for the throat chakra is blue. You will find blue colored accents within the border flowers of this artwork

– Be Gentle – This artwork is great for those that are suffering from: stomach ulcers, intestinal tumors, diabetes, pancreatitis, indigestion, anorexia/bulimia, hepatitis, cirrhosis, arthritis or the emotions that go along with – low self esteem, fear of rejection, oversensitivity to criticism, self-image fears, fears of our secrets being found out, indecisiveness

The Solar Plexus Chakra: One feels then thinks the one must do. This chakra is all your energy, power and action. It is located below the breast bone behind the stomach.

My interpretation of this all is that when I feel that feeling in my gut telling me that something is or isn’t right that is my intuition. In order to maximize our intuition and connection to our senses we must make sure our Solar Plexus Chakra is clear and fully active. I’ve written a little about boundaries here (https://noellerollinsart.wordpress.com/2012/06/14/i-give-you-permission-to-say-no/ ) and I think this also comes from having increased self-esteem. When you feel good about yourself and your place in life you don’t worry quite as much about people pleasing. I feel as if I’ve made so many strides in this area yet it has me wondering since I had to have my gallbladder out last December if that is somehow tied into my having more work to do in this area.

– Dinner for Two – bold colors, the visual sounds of the violin, candles all wrapped up in a 5″ x 7″ frame. Great for a kitchen or dining room.

Whats coming up for 2014 plus a year in review

Hello to you!

I wanted to take a moment to share with you what I have in store for 2014 and what it means for you.  (make sure to read to the end, there are some great inspiring links, photos and more)

Let me also take a moment to say Thank you to each of you.  I feel so blessed to be a part of a community where I can pour out my heart, share new artwork and be vulnerable in sharing my biggest dreams, goals and most personal stories. I love doing what I do, I love to paint, story tell, write poetry and teach. The fun part; I’ve been painting for 20 years and I feel like I’m just getting warmed up.

I just treated myself to a birthday gift this past week, I bought a set of oil paints.  The last time I tried oil painting is when I was 12, I put the painting in a drawer of my desk when I was finished and went back 3 months later and it was still wet… I decided right then that oil painting wasn’t for me.  Since then though I’ve wondered, I often paint with acrylics in a style that would work great in oils.  So fingers crossed as I experiment with them, I’ll make sure to share some of my work as I complete them.

So, what a year 2013 was.  I have gotten to see some of the fruits of past labor.  In November a necklace I designed was presented for sale internationally. I loved hearing more about the final details of it (since I was only involved in the initial stages), it is made of recycled silver and the chains were all make in Bali.  How amazing!

She #9 Necklace designed by Noelle


 

You can now find my bridal card line at Amazing Alterations in Anoka, Minnesota.  New Moon Metaphysical Store in Anoka also began carrying a line of my uplifting and soulful artwork, prints and cards.


 

I was also able to do the first (of hopefully many) baseball paintings on the fabric from the roof of the metrodome.  This is some of the fabric from when the roof collapsed a few years back.


 

And we had SO much fun at the studio.  When the time is right and I find the right people to share a space with I have a feeling I’ll go the studio route again. It was a little isolating through all by myself.

Your Life is far too valuable to live it like everyone else!

 

1. Celebrate your uniqueness. Your life was never meant to be lived like everyone else. You don’t look the same, you don’t sound the same, and your personality is special. Your deep-held values are unique. Even your laugh sets you apart. Throwing that away just for the sake of looking and living like everyone else is one of the cruelest things that you can ever do – it will always prevent you from fully living your life. Instead, champion the things that make you unique. Celebrate them.

 

2. Realize that most peoples’ lives are heading toward destruction. Just consider the latest statistics. For example: Last year, on average, Americans carried $8,100 in consumer credit (not mortgage debt) – that is $8,100 for every man, woman, and child in America. It’s no wonder 46% of Americans say they suffer from debt-related stress. And according to the American Medical Association, stress is a factor in more than 75% of sickness today. In addition, The Americans for Divorce Reform estimates that soon “50 percent of marriages will end in divorce if current trends continue.” One of the leading factors? You got it, financial problems.

 

3. Accept the truth that there is a better life out there. Reading through the statistics above, one can not help but say, “There must be something better out there.” There is and there always has been. Unfortunately, most people are so busy tripping over each other to purchase culture’s newest release that they miss out completely on the better life. Do not be fooled. The better life is not being mass-produced in a factory… you won’t find it on the shelves in a department store. It has never been found there. And never will be.

See how Minnesota photographer Pam Dusbabek (and my dear friend) is changing the way people see their own families.  She photographed my family this summer and it made me find new beauty in our everyday activities. She’s so amazing , you’ll LOVE her.  Plus she gives great ideas too, like when she started photographing her own children on Christmas Eve as they slept.  I’ve started doing this now and I love looking at those photos knowing they are filled with a magical feeling that only happens on Christmas Eve night.

        


 

I had a life changing dream a month ago that forever changed the way I handle competition, jealousy, envy, etc. You can read about it here.  

 

Sending HUGE amounts of love, gratitude and well wishes for an amazing 2014 to you! (and a Happy Birthday today to my sister, Ang!)

Studio Spring Open House recap

It’s hard to imagine that it was warm and sunny just a couple days ago, it’s snowing today and for the next couple days here in Minnesota. It’s pretty unheard of really. I feel incredibly grateful that we’re going to cozy up tomorrow and stay warm at home.

At the studio open house this past weekend there was speakers and I had Briana from http://www.orangespiralarts.com/ taking photos.  I’m so excited to share them with you here:

Hang in there sweet girl

You feel alone, invisisble. You are wondering why these life tests keep coming. You my dear could’ve chosen a life destiny that allowed you to be simply happy and content. But instead my sweet girl, while in the safe, loving comfort of the other side you dared to go big. You chose a life filled with greatness. Your wisest self knew that you’d need to have some hard times so you could take those times and turn them into your destiny.  Into a life that is bigger and greater than you even dare to dream right now.  But to handle that greatness, you’d need to be tough, wise and resiliant.

So girl, keep your head up.  Listen to your wisest self, trust, rise, journal.  Keep on, then keep on some more.  Smile, learn, be. You girl are gonna be the the one they are talking about for years after your wise, gray self left this earth. 

You, even though you don’t see it right now, you inspire us. We see you. I see you. The real you, the soulful, powerful, resiliant, beautiful you.     ~Noelle

New Couples Artwork and New Decor Print Style

**Tip - make sure you have your settings set to show pictures.  It'll make my newsletters a whole lot more fun!

 

Hello! I trust you have been well. This past last week we visited the ice castles here in Minnesota. It was as close to a perfect time as I think I can remember. Kids both happily playing, photo ops, fun, beautiful. We had Bruce’s wonderful mom with us and it was 30 degrees. Perfect.

 

I’ve had people asking me if I would do more artwork for couples. I got the greatest compliment a few weeks ago when hearing of someone who had purchased one of my artwork pieces and then used it as her inspiration to redecorate their master bedroom. That makes me beam.

Here is “Embrace” and “Together” both originals are available (24″x30″ ea) and both are also available as 8×10 prints in 11×14 mats. If you are looking for a different size print let me know and we’ll make it happen.  (Click on pictures to be taken to store)

 

I know sometimes when decorating a room you are just needing a simple color print to carry through the palette you’ve chosen. In response to that need I’m introducing Single Color prints from the Soulful Yoga series. These are matted and add a suble, calming touch to any room.

 

My vision for each of these pieces of artwork is to bring a calm, peaceful moment of inward reflection when you look at them. As we hurry through our days it helps to have visual reminders to take a deep breath, connect our mind, bodies and souls. Be in the moment for a moment. I’ve added a page to my website that shows this collection and tells more about each pose and Chakra. You can see it here.

 

On another note, I thank each of you that have purchased a Harmony Bracelet to support my trip to Israel in 2014. If you want to have first dibs on the style of bracelet when my first batch arrives in April and help me help women across the world next year I ask that you take a look at the bracelets here. If you would like to learn a bit more about this project you can watch a couple short videos here.

 

Wishing you a great week! Can’t wait to see some of you this Saturday at the Wine Extravaganza!

Also, how about that special friend who will be alone this year or the sister or daughter that is out of town? I’ve got prints or cards that will make her feel loved and special! You can find my entire store here.

Here is my newest print (click on any picture to be taken to that item in the store):

 

Interchangeable Magnet necklace. Comes with 3 print choices.

 

This cards says, “Caught between calm and chaos she holds her head high. Newly found strength, courage and grace confidently guide her.”

 

or This same image but one that says, “You are Fabulous!”

 

 

How about something for the music lover in your life?

 

This one is perfect to team up with a nice bottle of wine:

 

Team up this card with the Love print and a massage or flowers.

 

I have lots of cards too for your your man or lady. You can find them here. Feel free to set up a time to stop by the studio if you’re interested in picking up prints, cards or wine glasses directly from my supply there. You can also use the coupon code: Local Pickup from my website to not pay shipping charges on your order and setup a time with me to pick up your order from my studio.

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day next week! **Noelle

New Artwork – All that will be

a grateful next step… clarity

I have had such a sense of frustration the last month or two.  I knew I was growing and in a time of transition so I tried to use that uneasy, feeling and keep it in the background and trust the answers would come.  I shed a few tears, had a few moments of total panic wondering if I’m crazy to think that I can make a living as an artist and in my own way, journaled, found new information to help guide me, prayed, learned, slept …. but then….

This morning I woke up with such clarity.  Finally!!   I’ve been feeling unsure if I want to continue teaching my art classes in the way that I have been, I love doing them but something wasn’t sitting right.  I finally know what it is.  The reason I do the classes is to help women, I love to see a spark occur in women that normally give all their energy to everyone else around them but finally take a few minutes for themselves.  I realized this does not belong in the business part of my life.  It belongs more in my heart area of giving back, helping my comminity and global sisterhood.  I have so many great ideas how I can move forward in teaching through retreats, and collaborating with others but for my own classes in my own studio I have some great things I’m working on that give me goosebumps.  I see a clearer plan for my artwork, prints, licensing, wholesale. A larger global presense and a stronger sense of my place in it all.   Sweet hallelujah.

More to come as this clear path ahead of me continues to unfold and come into focus.

Here is one of my newer paintings in my Souful Yoga Line.  For now it’s simply titled, “Being”.
