Field Of Wings

Field of Wings is a message of hope community driven art installation, It’s a place where we honor our loved ones by painting a butterfly that are then installed in the trees about a giant painting created artist Jana Lynch. It’s Jana’s interpretation of the happiness she found here in the Village of Ruidoso.

This art installation will be maintained by Ruidoso Parks and Recreation, and they will continue the tradition of allowing people to paint wooden butterflies honoring their loved ones and these butterflies will live in the trees at Wingfield park.

The three retail outlets selected to carry the matching merchandise are Josey’s Framery, the PostslAnnex and HelloFromRuidoso.com

Jana believes people will want to take home the matching merchandise where they honored their loved ones, due to the popularity and exposer of this art by our visitors from all over the world. Some of the proceeds from each product sold will go to the Lincoln County Food Bank.

It is artist Jana’s vision that there are 10s of 1000s of butterflies in the trees at Wingfield one day, hence its name Field of Wings. Proceeds from butterfly sells to be divided with Lincoln County Food Bank, and Keep Ruidoso Beautiful Program

But FOR ONE LAST WEEKEND ONLY: Would you like to paint a butterfly with Jana? ($10) Or explore the Art & Garage sell she is hosting? Come say far the well to Jana and the ArtCave on November 12 thru 14 from noon til 6 pm

Jana and Kevin moved the art that represents Jana’s feeling for the Village of Ruidoso

What’s to become of Jana and Kevin

What’s next for Kevin and Jana … we’re starting to see the plan, even though we can only see the 6 foot circle that surrounds us. The plan is starting to look simple, but the ability to have a relaxed mental attitude during great adversity took us a lifetime to find the understanding that God, and only God, can see the entire battlefield.

We’re all called to lean into the dark of the unknown. That’s a hard place to be, until you take that leap of faith. As many of you know this too well.

During this trial of testing, (test truly provided for our spiritual growth), we were able to be calm and just relax into what seems like a never ending test; a test to prove our ability to stand fast in the wisdom that resides in our souls. The wisdom we earned through the hard, sometimes boring, but rewarding, is the daily work of studying the mind of Christ.

God’s wisdom is FREE to anyone who longs to understand what this world is all about.

There is no “what if’s” in It. It is absolute.

I’m so grateful we chose to grow up spiritually together. We live our life to “learn to live.” We did not take the more traveled road which is “fuck up a bunch of times, so you live to learn.” A road I was on, when I was a youngster.

God has the only true problem solving devises.

Kevin and I are nothing special … infact, we are deeply flawed.

BUT, I thank God … that ANYWAY, including my dumb ass, can jump on this ride. And let me assure you, adversity is inevitable, but the ability to handle it without stress is optional. Only in God’s wisdom can you find lasting solutions. Anyone who wants to learn wisdom, can. If you know people, who do not have the ability to learn, trust me, God has them. These are special and amazing people, with the ability to just be happy, and to love, as if it’s nothing – So don’t worry.

Too choose this less traveled road is hard at times, but deeply rewarding … It’s a spectacularly happy way to live.

Get your eyes off people and things to make you happy; they won’t and they can’t anyway. It only comes and goes … it’s fleeting. So learning God’s mind is the only way to true happiness.

We remain inside the light of that ring of fire that surrounds us. Nothing EVER may enter, unless it’s is God allowed with the purpose of spiritual growth. Evil flees from the truth. It’s that learned wisdom formed in your soul, where God can attach his happiness … thus blessings.

And trust me, I know, to anyone who has not taken that leap of faith, you must think I am bat shit crazy.

It’s something not any of us can understand, until you take that tiny leap of faith. And God then makes it real. This way of doing things is apart of the plan. It’s fair … but hard to see or understand it at first. I understand why it was done this way, if your interested in learning.

But with a little faith it all starts becoming real and the more you study the more real it becomes. Those thoughts of “what is this shit storm about!?” Before you know it, gets cleared up.

We are starting to see the plan that is our future, and we are so excited to see our next promotion.

Even though we are prepared for our greatest promotion, the day of our departure from human constraints. For now, it seems, God has other plans.

I have no doubt about what I’m to do.

That is to promote HOPE in other communities … I am to help build community driven art installations where we honor our loved ones.

So rather Kevin gets that one last huge grocery job (we will know more at the end of November about that), or if we are to become “Freedom Workers” – that is to be seasonal workers, helping small businesses survive the devistation of a government that sold us the biggest lie yet, a lie about security. The lie that states that “we got you!” We are excited about our future and we believe our last day here in Ruidoso, will be on or near 12/12/21.

Hey, if we are to become seasonal freedom workers (we should know by December about that) we would love Ruidoso to be our summer work/home! IF (and that’s a big IF) you guys fix the working class housing situation around here.

It’s really short thinking on the part of our governing body, and her citizens, not to correct this problem and correct it FAST!

Love, peace and most importantly FREEDOM to all!

tm 2021 Jana’s Painted Artist – painting of a giant art instulation of people jumping out of their graves, and a drawing of a giant mural that I want to paint, titled Grace Pipeline. Oh! That’s me in the happiest place on earth “the ArtCave” – I wonder where that place will be next? Oh wait, it matters not, that place resides in me.

(While writing this our home went back into contract; we accepted their offer. Thank you God and the amazing team of experts that you brought us.

Oh … garage sell coming soon. More to come.

Don’t give in to fear or all will be lost

Guys. Read please.

Installing paver art.
Enjoy her my sweet, Village of Ruidoso I hope 10000 butterflies will be seen in her trees soon!
Jana inventor of the Butterfly tree 2018 where we honor our loved ones.

I’m seeing a lot of fear conversion out here over my paver art being left in a public space … un-secure where someone could harm her.

If you learn one thing from me … please let it be this.

There is no such thing as security. PERIOD. I’m sorry we’re being taught and believe otherwise.

There is not enough money or man power in the world, to truly secure or keep anything safe … let alone my little piece of bleep PEACE art that you guys graciously granted me permission to display publicly. She doesn’t belong behind bars, does she?

She is a gift. Freely given by all involved.

She represents freedom. The butterflies will fly away. The art will not last forever.

Please don’t give into fear that something might happen to her. I beg you. Just enjoy her while she lasts.

Please just pray that she remains safe. PERIOD. And let it go.

If someone is set on destroying her … well, then. God has other plans. perhaps a very important lesson needs to be taught. Or maybe the next emerging artist needs to paint on it next.

God sees the entire battlefield. Let him handle the big things.

SO PLEASE … just pray she stays safe than it’s God’s business the only true security you got.

Look up instead of looking anywhere else … And remember … nothing lasts forever other than your soul and even it is FREE to chooses where it’s forever will be spent.

Sign that will be with PeaceGarden art installation
While installing the art into Wingfield Park the Ruidoso Wild ponies came by to say “Hey”
Just let go. Every time I think about securing something the “well … but then you will have to do this oh and add insurance oh how much insurance and oh I know let’s just hide it” weeee all that creeps in … it never ends. Ok my soapbox rant is over but This painting is Available. lol

I miss them

The print of baby Blossom available soon at HelloFromRuidoso.com
Rose with her Skunk.
Petunia after she lost her mommy

I’m missing Buttercup (deceased), Rose and Petunia and I’ve not even left here yet.

I made sure that they, and all nine of their kits combined will NEVER come back around here, because like most people, the future owner’s of my home, seriously might not want them around and could encamp them or kill them. I’ve seen it, I’ve heard what people say about them, about how bad and destructive they can be.

So I couldn’t stomach the thoughts of someone harming them, they were her biological material after all … our amazing Flower. Flower our first raccoon is where it all began, 4 years ago. So …

I will be write an ebook about her and the 4 generations worth of adventures she took me on.

Did you know Flower was an orphan? … but being resilient, she just picked a new family … unlikely as you might find this grouping to be … she picked a baby skunk, a feral kitty and me.

This story will be more about freedom than raccoons. As we’ve made a mistake in this land, slow but sure, it took years and years, but we turned in our freedom wings and replaced them with the heavy clanking chains of propaganda and fear motivated security.

I think our kids should know that there was, and is a better way. One that promotes individuality, creativity and ingenuity.

Anyway, like our fearless Flower, I’m resilient, so when the shit hits the fan, I’m good at standing up; at finding a new way. As I did for these raccoons on August 25 when I learned of our fate … it was quick and without emotion …

But tonight … I broke, I’m in a pile of emotions and I just had to have a big boo-boo cry … I miss my free friends, and with 9 kits strong ?! … the future of Flower’s lineage is looking spectacular. But my story will have to end here at …

“Hello From Ruidoso … the Flower story” (working title)

Om dear God … I miss them.

Blossom all grown up. She didn’t like this ball that I gave to her kits. She destroyed it.

I’m So grateful I got Jay Lynch on my team, he’s extremely encouraging and understands the world of online marketing. He will be managing HelloFromRuidoso.com … the merch coming soon, and one day an ebook. Hit him up … he can do for you, what he’s doing for me.

She’s one of Flower’s Kits – Flower had five but Blossom won my territory, and eventually my heart … because she let me sit on the porch with her. I loved her so much I even painted her right into our community PeaceGarden patio art. T-shirts available at Josie Powell’s Framery.

Then the following year, Blossom brought me babies … one of which was Rose … our little hunter.

Who remembers Rose?

Rose as a baby. FYI when they grow up they aren’t friendly anymore more.

She creeped us all out when she killed my chipmunk friend and left him in her water so she could play with him another day. Gross! But we forgave her, because after all, she lost her mother Blossom, before Blossom could teach her hunting 101: “Stop playing with your food!”

(TM Jana Painted Artist everything my little mind creates is mine. Powerful. Lol … thank you Jay)

So many great stories … I can’t wait to share them all …

Blossom made it in into my art.

What have we done. I feel so alone in my thoughts.

Work in progress. “We voted security over freedom and got neither”

Buttercup presented her 4th generation baby raccoons last night

Well … Buttercup brought her kits and She had three. We got our forth generation of same family of raccoons guys! How cool is that?

Shown here drinking water that they can barely reach I need to top it off for them … water is legal.

Does it get any cuter?

FYI. Buttercup left her kits in the den way longer than her mother Blossom left hers there. Blossom’s mom Flower didn’t wait this long ether to bring her kits around.

These babies are older before we are seeing them.

Do you think it’s because Buttercup witnessed her mom and two of her siblings be killed? Where she herself sustained injured and Petunia, her sister lost an eye and Rose would cry out in deep sigs, longing for her mom? They were only only like 16 weeks old? I think it greatly effected them. I’m Proud of you Buttercup! You didn’t it.

“Message of Hope” garden that we build slowly, is quickly becoming the happiest place on earth. I pray daily for right people to come and help … and they are coming slow but sure, and the world will come see what we’ve built.

I almost hate to name them. The loss is so often here in the wild. Maybe we wait to name them to see who emerges victorious over this territory. It will be Buttercups favorite. Humm time will tell.

Her Wedding day

I get to go to a wedding in a few weeks of the first human I ever saw come out of the womb.

If you’ve never seen it. Set an intention to do so and see if you’re blessed enough to find someone who will grant this day to you.

Well, I had such friends … that one in a billion couple, who granted me this day, not just once but twice … Rebecca Lovett Dykes and husband Donald Elwood Dykes. Thank you.

My first, Ariel Dykes … I got the call that you were coming. I jumped on the plane. You waited me to arrive, I looked into you mama’s eyes and said “Beck, I could not do this, but you can”, and so she did and you were born.

Your umbilical cord was the colors of a pearl, you, I swear, can see the world inside it, and inside there runs the ocean with all the aqua colors of the universe running thur it – as the ocean turns to red blood … you know this child YOU, just entered an evil world, but you are here with great purpose, as we all are, and that is, to solve the angelic conflict … and your road will be full of rocks that test you daily. I’m happy to report, this, that YOU pass these tests, and applies solutions that propels you towards the light.

You are breathtaking.

And I saw God breath life into you, your first breath of air, and you, the most beautiful girl I ever saw, screamed out your first breath right into my face.

I cryed all the way home. Everyone on the plane ✈️ had to stand down … because they KNEW without a doubt, that this was my moment because I had seen a miracle. God decided her moment of arrival, and he and only he will decide her moment of departure. (Not your doctor, nor your government not you but God)

I can’t wait for Oct 23, 2022 – Ariel picked a good one to spend her live with. – Jaron Robertson … May YOU ALWAYS consider her first in every decision you makes. That is your charge a direct order from God. You got this!

So to the couple, Slow everything down now. You didn’t it! You are prepared. You have arrived to your special day. Take tons of mental photos.

And please try not to look my way on your day … as I’ll be the one in the back, having an emotional private moment.

I was happy … she seemed pleased.

A giant of a man … Kevin Stepp

I am so grateful I get the opportunity to work with my husband Kevin.

I knew he was exceptional, but until you get to work with him?! Well … he takes my breath away. He treats every business as if he owns it. There is no job there, that is beneath him. He just goes to work.

He’s a spiritual giant, so he has no problem serving people with great humility and respect.

What was Albertson’s thinking? … sad deal, fear rules the day … but No matter … we’ve passed the test. And we are beyond Grateful.

What an honor and a privilege it is to serve with him. It’s like God has just opened up tons more opportunities for us, so that we can continue TOGETHER to build HOPE … because simply put, it’s time.

I’m so grateful to my village for wanting the PeaceGarden in a public space. Thank you.

I can’t wait to see where we light next.

I want to thank Chon Caswell, Shal Holly and all the gang for welcoming us to the Casa Blanca Restaurant family. We love you all. We love your customers who now feel like our friends. It feels like family. We are SO grateful that you stopped our financial bleed out. Thank you!

Excited for our future. Hummm it may be we are to be in multiple towns … just hitting thier season and helping small businesses survive. Interesting and an extremely fun thought?!?

You need a job? … let me restate that … The job needs you … even if you have only one day to give. It’s yours … It’s time guys … it’s war now, we got to push back and help save small businesses … Go help I beg you. The money is great. I don’t know about you but I wanna eat out, go to bars, hear live music and shop local … it will be a thang of the past if you don’t go help.

I’m excited to serve you over at Casa. Join me at your table … Tuesday and Wednesday lunch. Thursday and friday dinner. Then the Paintedartist Artcave & Garden will be open Saturday and Sunday 1 to 4 pm … Until we get our marching orders.

Love and peace to all.

My husband and our two little girls. IGs named Sissi and Lady Grace.
