ART and MUSIC; two mediums with the power to inspire and uplift.
When Shey (Shey Khandro) and I first met , she was working on a very special painting; a traditional medicine Buddha with a more modern color palette.
Says Shey, “The Buddha is recognized around the globe as a symbol of Peace and Compassion. A rich and vibrant blue, the Medicine Buddha is revered for his qualities of healing. I chose this image to remind us of our inherent well being, the wellness present within and around us.”
As with all of her transformational art and jewelry, each piece (peace!) is imbued with an intention or a prayer; to support the healing of ourselves, our planet and all living beings
At the same time, I was composing and recording the last few tracks on my album, Healing Music Volume 2; music designed for inner peace, meditation and personal transformation.
There were days in Shey’s art studio where I set up my equipment and worked on the music while she painted. Shey’s painting “Our Time is Now” became infused with the peaceful and healing energy of my music, and my album was being infused with the vibrations of Shey’s colors, her intentions and prayers. It was an incredibly high-vibe and bonding experience, and both of our projects benefitted from the collaboration.
I adore the album cover that Shey later designed with details from this painting; it just jumps off the page and makes my heart sing!
THIS MONTH, in celebration of International Day of Peace (a U.N. recognized holiday on every September 21, ) the Goldenstein Gallery is doing a special promotion of Shey’s painting “Our Time is Now,” and offering my now-award-winning album “Healing Music Volume 2” as a special gift.
Thanks to Linda Goldenstein, Kayla Clemens and Rachel Tucker for taking such good care of this project, and thank you to Shey for such a meaningful and joyous exchange.

Artist Shey Khandro’s “Our Time is Now” blue medicine Buddha painting has been featured on musician Valerie Romanoff’s latest album!
The Album recently won Best World Album at ZMR Global Airplay Chart’s 15th Annual Zone Music Awards in New Orleans. To read about this recent achievement click here.
To celebrate with Shey & Valerie, and our Everyday Peace Exhibit in September, each “Our Time is Now” print or original painting will come with an album copy of “Healing Music: Volume 2”.
I believe all of our artist’s pieces have a peaceful intention that is realized by the artist as they create and by the viewer when they experience the piece. In this way, art is very healing.
Our Everyday Peace Art Exhibit this month, Shey Khandro’s meditations and artist in residence support Peace in our Hearts and Minds by celebrating the 38th anniversary of the International Day of Peace and encouraging all to experience peace every day. See events and the artist in residence schedules below.
