A bigger Vision for Nirvana Visions

BUY ART and DONATE to those in NEED at the same time!

I am happy to report that sales at Nirvana Visions have reached the status where it is now possible for me to take the initiative to use my art to make the world a better place! From today onwards, 10% of all Nirvana Visions Artwork sale profits will be donated to Oxfam:

Oxfam Australia is part of a global movement of dedicated people working hard to fight poverty and injustice

What does this mean?

If you purchase a painting at $1200... not only will you be embellishing your walls with beautiful and heart warming art... BUT you will also be donating enough money to provide medicines to an ENTIRE VILLAGE in Laos and more!

Now when you invest in Art from Nirvana Visions, you will also be investing in the health and wellbeing of families and communities across the globe.

How fabulous!

Are you excited? I am!

Some beauties to choose from are:

Christmas Wishes

Dear Clients and Art students,

Well we have come to the end of a fabulous year!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas.

I hope that you are enjoying your Christmas shopping and your plotting and planning for a great holiday ahead. I know that I certainly am.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of my Art Students on the beautiful works that each have created this year. It has been an absolute pleasure to teach you and you have all come along so far in your sketching, painting and compositional skills.

To celebrate this fact and honor your successes, I am hoping to organize an exhibition of your works in the new year. I would love for this event to be a real celebration of your work and one that I would love for many of your family and friends to be invited to. Of course, there will be some great prizes for a peoples choice award and lucky door prize at the event so I hope that all are keen to bring their works along to show. This event will be planned for early Feb 2010.

Art Classes have just 2 weeks left and will be wrapping up on Friday 11th. I will be available for intensives if individuals would like to organise private sessions if works need to be finished in time for Christmas. Private tuition is available at $20/hour.

Art classes
will be resuming in 2010 on the 2nd Feburary. Please confirm your place in the class of your choice as places will fill up fast:

Tuesday 4:30 - 5:30pm - Yaroomba (KIDS CLASS from 6yrs) $15 casual $10 pre-paid.
Tuesday 7 - 8:30pm - Yaroomba $15 casual $10 pre-paid.
Thursday 9am - 12 noon - Jenart Gallery, Moooloolaba $30
Friday 9am - 12:30pm - Jenart Gallery, Mooloolaba $35
Friday 6pm - 8pm - Jenart Gallery, Moooloolaba (held once a month)

Just a few weeks left of gift buying, so if you have spotted a Nirvana Visions painting that you simply must have, or that would be the perfect gift for someone that you know, now is the time to purchase so that I can arrange for the appropriate shipping requirements!

It is still possible for small businesses to receive 50% back from the Government on purchased paintings, so it is a great time to invest in the art that you love. I am offering a number of new works, so be sure to check them out before you finish your Christmas shopping!

I hope that you each have a festive and fabulous holiday and I look forward to diving into a year of exciting arty experiences in 2010!

Words of pure delight!

Welcome all to my latest news...

I am happy to announce that my beautiful website has had its' 'fine art overhaul' and is now in keeping with the current pace of my fine art career!

I have much to offer you through Nirvana Visions and as part of my new site, you now have access to not only my latest painted works, but now, also my written works. Now I am not one to boast (well, ok, you got me on that one), but it has been quoted that my written works are better than my painted works! So if you love my paintings, your soul will sing as you float through my written works...

A sneak peek...

I have missed your luminous glow in full bloom,
your sweet simplicity near the new moon.
Did you miss mine?

Stay with me a moment,
and I will share my 'self' with you,
and we will laugh
and we will remember how beautiful life is.

Please enjoy, as you wander around my Nirvana Visions, and feel free to share its' magic and delight with friends.

I will be showcasing a whole new series of works soon, just in time for Christmas, so if you are looking for something really special for yourself or for a friend... stay tuned! Warning, these new works are overflowing with rich color, warmth and pure delight as colors drip and swirl... each an enchanting moment for the eyes and the soul.

Closing Shop!

Hi All

Firstly, the good news: here is a glimpse at one of my latest paintings from a series I am creating titled "Life Boats". Sorry, but if you love it, it has already sold! Stay tuned for the next installment

The not so good news:... don't panic, it is not a total shut down... but as I merge into the world of fine art it is necessary to change tact and refine my public window now and then... For this reason, I am going to be closing my online shop of Affirmation Cards, Girly Goddess Shirts, Bags and more!

Of course I will still be selling original works through my Nirvana Visions store (which has been running hot lately!) and theer will still be select works available as prints through Red Bubble.

I will also be launching a new 'written works' section within my website that I am sure you will find enriching and enticing.

I look forward to hearing from you and please make any final purchases through my online shop (especially for Christmas) this week as it will be closing for good next Friday!

Love and Light,
Tara Spicer.

Goddess Card Pack

Hi All,

Welcome to my latest blog.

I recently ran a workshop at the Manly Arts Festival in creating your own Goddess Affirmation Card, an event which some of you even attended!

Upon returning home I began the process of fine tuning the most beautiful Affirmation Cards so that I could take the workshop Goddesses through a clear and easy 'how to' process of creating their own affirmation cards with the beautiful images that they created at the workshop.

The following product is the result of this investigation!

I invite you to check out my newest product and one that I believe is one of my intuitive bests so far!

This pack is a quick reference guide in discovering, and awakening your 'self' as the Goddess that you are! Affirmations, Chakra tuning tools, Goddess Action cards and more! Simply randomly pull a desired number of cards from the pack and you will be intuitively guided in bringing great positivity to your life and to the lives of those around you.

Sample Intuitive wisdom and messages found on the reverse side of these beautiful cards:

Caution: Using this Goddess Card Pack may enhance your life and leave you feeling effervescent with joy on a day to day basis!

To check out wha tthe whole pack has to offer simply follow this link!
Pack available at just $29.79

To those who attended the workshop, thankyou and I will be contacting you shortly via email.

Another great gift!

Well now that you have had a little time to let your toes dance among the fairies... I would like to introduce to to another another great gift!

I have a copy myself and bought 2 more for friends! Presnetly being launched by Anita at Goddess.com.au I warmly introduce you to my new favorite book :

Foodies rejoice! No more dangerous dieting; no more trash talking; no more self-loathing�

When Anita Revel lost her libido, her self-respect and her aspiration to get another season out of her bikini, she embarked on a life-changing process to find her goddess within. In creating The Goddess DIET, she found dozens of Daily Intentional Empowerment Tools to realign her physical, emotional and spiritual behaviours for holistic well-being.

The Goddess DIET works because it connects the three crucial relationships between body, mind and spirit for a healthy self-esteem. Lose your inner critic, gain more energy and fall in self-love.

To check out "The Goddess DIET" or to buy your own copy now... just follow the link to my shop!

Newsletter Jan 09

Welcome to our first Nirvana News for the year!

Firstly I would like to congratulate our December WINNER

Michelle Sand

who won a copy of her favorite Nirvana Visions artwork as a glossy wall mount:

Michelle was very excited about her win. Thankyou to all who entered our Christmas competition.

goddess gal pal goddessgalpal@blah blah.com

Competition will be drawn 31st January

It's Official

Color and art make the world a happier place!!!
I came to this realization when, over Christmas, I splashed out a little and bought myself some pink clothes pegs, some rainbow dish gloves and a rainbow broom. In the days that followed this seemingly wasteful purchase... I glanced out into the back yard, and I got a little tingle of happiness and a little smile crept over my face as the pink pegs caught my eye. They look so bright and fun amidst all the drab washing. All of a sudden, I am excited about hanging the washing out and I will use ONLY the pink pegs :-) I take great delight in donning my rainbow dish gloves as I am scrubbing and scouring and I must admit that i feel a little more like a domestic Goddess than a cleaner now.

I have definitively decided that splashes of color make the world a happier place and in I am ready and inspired for another year of art to bring delight to the world (like I need another excuse to paint).
