The Spirit of the Paint  January 2015
Looking for that painting of your heart?
Dreaming of color, texture and energy?
It is in the Spirit of the Paint.
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one that has opened for us.
Alexander Graham Bell
January Journey Ahead

Doors Opening: The past two years have been a culminating journey. While some doors have closed, new ones have opened bringing to our lives a fullness we would never have imagined. My faith in God has been my support through it all. As we are begin our third year back in the DFW area, Terry and I are still unpacking boxes from our move in March 2013. Reminders fly through the conversation to simplify life and throw out what you do not need.

With a new year dawning and that list of "resolutions" scrawled before you, could it be time to rethink life and direction? Staying comfortable and not making changes is the easiest choice but is it the right choice?  Terry uprooted my studio four weeks ago. I fought the change like a mother hen defending her chicks. Paint Upstairs?    Seriously?  While I was not comfortable in the room I had chosen downstairs, I was adamant about NOT moving upstairs.

As you can see the tool box that holds my paints is not small. My awesome son in law that just happens to live across the street, helped Terry move it upstairs navigating a two level staircase. First they removed all the drawers and then with brute force hauled that tool box upstairs. Within minutes they slid the drawers in place and presto, I was back in business.

  2. * By next newsletter ALL canvas will be upstairs. 
  3. * The drafting board will be ready for action.

  4. * Lady L will be ready to paint again.  Her easel will be set up in the next few weeks and she is eager to be back at work.

I have completed my contract with The La Jolla Gallery and am shipping several paintings there way for the opening in late January. If you are in the area, please stop by the gallery or let me know if you would like your own invitation from the gallery.

Blessings to you in this new year as we each embark on a new path and this journey together. Let go of the things you need to let go of and open your heart and allow new things into your life and let it all grow in abundance.

Again I cannot thank you enough for your support of the arts as well as your support and belief in my art. I pray that I can live up to your expectations. You inspire me constantly with your wonderful emails, your suggestions for paintings, your horse images, your family pictures...I feel like we are truly family.
