What people are saying…
“I love working with Pete! I like how the art captured the Yoga on Main vibe. The way he put into art the flowing energy of our studio and the colors are amazing! The art gives the studio color, energy and creates a focal point. He even came in and painted during one of our classes…he soaked up the energy and put it into art.!”

“Megan and I have had the pleasure of meeting Pete at several events! We will be joining Pete soon to put a Touch drawing class together in the near future. We even are lucky enough to have a custom art piece in our home! Check out his page and enjoy! Much love and peace!” – Marisa Pickett
“I picked up my print yesterday and I can’t tell you how much I LOVE it!!!! I have 2 now and they are framed and in my sacred work space. I was telling Jennifer and Denise that when I look at them I remember everything from meditation. I remember what I felt, what was worked on, what our collective experience was like. It is an amazing tool that helps me tap back into that energy. What a gift you are giving us Pete! If you ever want to to do live paintings at drum circle we would love to have you join us. Next one is this Friday:)” – Angela Torres
Pete is a true visionary! He painted my picture after a few questions with remarkable insight and filled with energy that helped me complete writing my son’s story! – Barbara Chevalier
“Pete Taboada’s beautiful crystal infused painting – “Universal Unity” has brought about an elevated energetic experience in my meditation classes at the Lightworker’s Sanctuary which are held in the same room where the painting is located. I have conducted these meditation classes elsewhere and it is always wonderful. However, in this room specifically in front of this beautiful high energy painting, the energy is very high and the participants are able to connect to the meditative calm space easier and faster.

This painting, titled I Am Holy Fire, was a collaborative work between Visionary Artist Pete Taboada and Usui/Holy Fire Reiki Master, DeAnna VandeZande.
Here are a few words from DeAnna:
During one of my Holy Fire Reiki meditations the idea popped into my head, “I’m going to have Pete paint me a Holy Fire painting!” Excitedly I emailed Pete and shortly thereafter we met and discussed a few details that needed to be in the painting, primarily the Holy Fire flame as a focal point and what Holy Fire means to me. This discussion was followed by a Reiki session, at which time Pete received further details from Spirit as to what needed to be included in the painting.
Following his intuition and Spirit-guidance, Pete began to paint, unaware of how all the elements he was painting connected to each other, or of their meanings and relevance to me. When I first saw the painting, I was astounded! Pete had included imagery that I had not discussed with him, yet it is integral to the overall theme and purpose of the painting.
The dragons are very special to me, as Dragon has been a protector of mine for many years. Pete, however, was unaware of this at the time of the painting. The flames at the bottom of the painting represent a specific place in my meditation, the Ocean of Holy Love. Again, Pete did not have prior knowledge of this ocean, yet he followed Spirit-guidance and depicted it beautifully.
The human-flame form rising from the ocean of flames represents myself as the healer, after having become one with the Holy Fire energy. The blue-white flame-vapors above depict the intensely purifying love of Spirit as it enters my aura, transforming into the gentle yet powerful Holy Fire. With arms extended, I offer myself as a channel for Spirit’s healing energy to flow through me as an expression of love for mankind, all the while reminded by the dragons of my spiritual protection. This painting impressively illustrates the continuous cycle of healing, loving energy as it flows from Spirit, to and through me, then flows outward to others. This is all set off on a breathtaking background full of depth and movement.
I Am Holy Fire now hangs in my healing room, generating and emanating healing energy to all who enter.
Thank you, Pete!
peace, love & light – DeAnna VandeZande
