my Current show features The work of early california Impressionist artist E.Charlton Fortune, and a visit to meditation mount in Ojai california.

 This month I'll take you to two locations you might want to visit during the holiday season.  First stop is to a museum in the city of  Pasadena that is slightly off the beaten path called The Pasadena Museum of California Art, to view an exhibit featuring the work of an early impressionist artist by the name of E. Charlton Fortune.  She captured the light and beauty of every day life in Monterey California in the late 1800's.   Her eye for color and light is revealed in her work as she painted in plien air along the coast in early Monterey, as well as the seaside village of St Tropez France.   Here are some the pieces you can see at the museum.

Next stop is to a hidden meditation sanctuary in Ojai California, high above the valley tucked away on the cliff side of a mountain sits a garden oasis called Meditation Mount. Here you'll find a tranquil meditation center surrounded by the beauty of nature, a place to meditate and honor the world of inner peace.  People gather on a monthly basis for full moon ceremony's, yoga classes, tai chi, and participate in workshops and lectures facilitated by spiritual teachers from around the world.  Here is a view of what you can experience at Meditation Mount in Ojai.
