SirenNation Art Show Opening

On the right: Quickened Toward All Celestial Things, by Jparadisirn, 2018 on display through November

Imagine my surprise to find my painting Quickened Toward All Celestial Things has been given a street view exhibition space at Portland 5! Thank you @SirenNation for an awesome opening reception tonight.

On exhibit through November as part of the Siren Nation Visual Art Show Portland 5 Centers for the Arts Antoinette Hatfield Hall, 1111 SW Broadway, Portland, OR 97205

Crows have mythological meaning in many cultures. They are messengers from another dimension, shape shifters, and symbols of transformation. The title is adapted from a line Emily Dickinson wrote in a letter to a friend:

“Dear Friend,
…Quickened toward all celestial things by crows I heard this morning-accept a loving caw from a nameless friend.”

Introducing The Adventures of Nurse Niki

I’d like to introduce to you Nurse Niki, a product of my imagination. You can get to know Niki on her blog, The Adventures of Nurse Niki (fiction so lifelike it’s almost real) launching today. Please Like her Facebook page. Follow Nurse Niki on Twitter @NurseNikiAdven. She’s looking forward to interacting with readers on all three sites.

The Adventures of Nurse Niki

The Adventures of Nurse Niki

Although a fictional character, Nurse Niki is a real nurse, and by that I mean she faces similar conflicts the rest of us do.  She’ll blog about the tensions between her personal and professional lives, among other things.

I’ve been blogging at JParadisiRN since 2009, and I still haven’t said everything I intend to say, so JParadisiRN blog remains status quo.

The Adventures of Nurse Niki is a work of fiction that hopefully rings true.

Artist Matt Lamb

Matt Lamb is an internationally recognized artist who uses his fame and resources promoting world peace. Umbrellas for Peace is one avenue of this global pursuit. I have not had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Lamb, but I have read his biography Matt Lamb: The Art of Success, by Richard Speer. Drawn to his story of finding his voice as an artist after a serious health crisis, and leaving a lucrative career, I found many of Mr. Lamb’s insights  about life, death, and creativity resonated within me, a nurse, cancer survivor, and artist. I posted a comment on his blog, thanking him for sharing his story.

Last night, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Matt Lamb wrote a post about my work as an artist and a nurse. His respect for both professions is clear, and I am appreciative of his generosity and kind words. Be sure to check his art, his blog, and Like his Facebook page.
