Hi, Guys! It's been a minute since I have updated any new pieces, mainly because of constant issues with my computer... Here is one of my art pieces which I hope that you will truly like called "GAMMA RAY" Available at shivasly.com
Here in the city of Billings, MT there has been a project called the "Traffic Signal Box Program" which was created to beautify the downtown area with local artist's artwork. The members of the program will commission an artist to create an art piece to be used on the traffic signal boxes. This year I was nominated and will have my art piece shown! I am very excited and wanted to share this exciting news. The art piece is set to show on Sept 17th! I will provide more information once we get closer to the date and the unveiling! Hurrah!!
I wanted to send out a volunteer request to the beautiful artists that I know. I was recently approached by a friend who works for HRDC. She said once a year they create a fun day for kids at the zoo where children get their faces painted and get to see the animals for free. She said that it is a way to give back to the committee and asked me if I could gather together several artists who would be willing to donate 6 hrs of their time to help children. Now I know many fabulous artists and I also know many amazing people, so I agreed to try. The date of their event is June 15. You can bring your little ones in to enjoy the day as a trade, but they need around 30 artists since last year's show brought over 10,000 people. Please reply to this or DM me if you are willing to volunteer 6 hrs of your time. FYI it falls on a Thursday. Thanks :D

Hi, Guys, I was looking through my pictures on Imgur and saw that "The Legion of Seahorse" has over 15,000 views! Cool huh! :D available at shivasly.com
When I originally decided to create "My Journal" I had no idea of the longevity which would unfold by writing it.
I wanted a chronicle of my path and what I experienced in my progression to success. I have always known that I was destined for greatness and so I've made up my mind to see this through to the end, why? because I am destined to. :D
I stopped writing because I became afraid that I didn't know what I was doing, yet what I have found is that when I allowed myself to follow the synchronicity that life presented me I seemed to flow very steadfast and naturally in one direction.
This year I decided that I wanted to continue doing my art and by making this decision I went into the world asking to showcase my art to realtors (being that my next goal is the hospitality industry). I was asked if, in exchange for showcasing my art, I would be willing to host an art show. Although I never got the offer to showcase my art in the homes, I did host the art show. The event had many issues and at times I wanted to drop the whole thing because it wasn't very cohesive, yet myself and the other artists persevered by keeping the final goal in mind.
I decided to now continue on this path and create another art show this time it will have bells and whistles.
The only difference with this upcoming art show will be how selective I am with the artists.I wish to ensure that the ultimate goal for the event is "being a team". The artists must clearly understand the success or failure of the event is in the hands of "all" of the artists. This must be willing to see themselves as a community wanting the best for everyone whom they are working with. I have learned to be grateful for everything in the last year, and although I may have experienced many misfires and was left confused several times by the experience, I also saw a chance to look for the silver lining and push past what things looked like, to what they could be.
"I see you!"

Once upon a time there was a girl named "Light" who was the keeper of time and space. One day "Light" decided to wander through the dimensions to see what existed in other realms. She found a dimension filled with color and stopped to admire its beauty.
She suddenly realized that it wasn't just the brilliant colors that had pulled her into the new dimension, but something which she had heard. Curious she found herself hypnotized and in swift pursuit of the strange calling. Louder and louder the calling thundered in her ears urging her on; until she turned a corner and stopped in her tracks.
"Hypnotizing Sound" by ShivaSly An abstract image of "Sound"There on a hill stood a boy who seemed to glow brightly, and with his back to her he continued singing a song that flooded everything around him with color; his very presence made all of the beings near him dance and laugh with joy.
"Light" felt moved and called out to him asking who he was; upon hearing her voice he turned, smiled and said his name was "Sound."
"Light" was mesmerized by "Sound's" beauty and voice, and wanted to learn all that she could about him. She stayed with him in his dimension for some time enchanted by him, and him with her, until she told him that she must leave, but would return one day to him.
"A Star is Born" by ShivaSly This piece is to represent what our universe looked like when first light broke through the darkness"Light" continued on with her journey through the many dimensions learning all that she could about the other universes and galaxies. "Light" found a world filled with illusions and adventure, and she became rather content there; until one day when she felt an aching pain within her heart.
"Light" felt a stirring within, as if something was urging her to turn back in time, and as she turned around she began to remember her past.
"Light" decided she must leave immediately. As she moved through space and time (with a feeling of her essence fading). Pressing on as fast as she could, unsure of what was happening, and feeling quite drained she decided to stop and rest; upon doing so a vision of "Sound" formed within her mind.
In the vision, "Sound" told her that he could no longer wait for her and needed to leave his dimension and begin on his travel to the next dimension.
The Glory to the ankh" by ShivaSly The Ankh is the symbol of light and life "The Glory to the Ankh" is on display at the Billings, MT YAM (Yellowstone Art Museum)"Sound" kissed her head in the vision and as he did an image appeared on "Lights" chest.
As the vision disappeared "Light" awoke and knew that "Sound" had left his world.
"Light" sat in silence accepting that her friend was gone and bent her head feeling sad that she had been gone for so long. Then an image caught her eye and she saw the gift that "Sound" had left behind for her.
"Light" looked up and shed a tear and put her hand to her chest where "Sound" had left a symbol of the bond they had on her heart.
"Light" felt honored, and to commemorate "Sounds" essence, "Light" created another image and placed it alongside the symbol he left on her chest. "Light" vowed to wear both images through infinity.
Light and Sound have remained bond throughout time, known to all within the secret teachings of the universe, as the symbols "Aum and Ankh"; Sound and Lifeforce.
