Introducing the Zodiac Collection

Lately, I have been thinking about energy. How it's our most valuable resource, and all the ways energy is harnessed. Whether it is a force for good, or bad — it's the essence of life, and life is what it's all about. I think this idea is starting to emerge in my work more. I think it's a way to cope with things that are not in my control. When I am painting, I like to let the energy flow through me out onto the canvas, transforming it into a force for good. 

Zodiac Collection


I have been putting most of my energy into creating a Zodiac Collection for my daughter's shop Springs Spirituality. Working abstractly with mixed media and resin, has me out of my comfort zone, and I am loving this new direction ❤️

Shirley Bales, artist

Hi there! I'm Shirley. While I was practically born with a paintbrush in hand, I formally studied fine art under an accomplished forensic portrait artist and other notable illustrators in the 1990's. My favorite thing to do is paint outside. I  paint in mixed media and oil and love color! My work resides in thousands of private collections nationwide, and I am so grateful.
