My paintings are generated from the heart and meant to touch the heart. Sally Sweetland
In his review of a solo gallery exhibit, following is an excerpt from Marc Awodey's critique:
While some artists seem to paint the same picture over and over again, perhaps trying to create a recognizable style, painter Sally Sweetland is aesthetically restless. Her exhibition of more than 30 oil-on-linen works at Stowe's West Branch Gallery & Sculpture Park evidences a dazzling array of painterly approaches. The diversity of Sweetland's show, entitled "Patches of Sunlight and Hope," is at first a little jarring, but ultimately it reveals conceptual complexity, nods to art history and a full spectrum of beautifully composed hues. The cumulative effect of Sweetland's paintings is as rich as the natural world to which they frequently refer.

Your natal chart is a map of where you came from and can provide guidance for your best expression in this life. But we always have choice! This is not a "fortune telling" modality. And you are much more than your Sun sign, which you may read about in the back of your local newspaper, or more likely online. Your inner cosmos, like the one above that we all share, has just as many planets, (ie: Venus, Jupiter, Uranus..), Asteroids (ie the wounded healer Chiron, Ceres..), and lunar nodes, which are points in space we look toward for your native "past life" south node habits, and your North node evolutionary potential. Inside, you are as infinite as the dimensions of outer space... and ever changing, just like the skies above.
With skilled guidance, Evolutionary Astrology can help you locate and live into your greatest potential. Any challenges seen in the natal chart are viewed in EA as "opportunities for integration," and so worth it. For more information on choice centered Evolutionary Astrology, I refer you to my primary teacher, Steven Forrest, and his many offerings, books, talks, etc. (An easy google)
This website shows some archaeology of my many decades as a practicing and relatively successful fine artist. More recently, my canvas is looking to the charts of those who come seeking clear, honest and compassionate guidance, as evidenced by your own soul's wisdom.
My primal triad is: Sun: Pisces, Moon: Leo, Asc: Virgo. In a reading I received from world famous astrologer Rob Hand, he noted that I have the chart of a "master astrologer!" Such is my greatest aspiration, and to use my skills and native gifts in service to those seeking grounding and balance in this wildly chaotic, sublimely beautiful world.
