Subject: Use what you have, and use what the world gives you.

October 2016

“Use what you have, use what the world gives you. Use the first day of fall: bright flame before winter's deadness; harvest; orange, gold, amber; cool nights and the smell of fire. Our tree-lined streets are set ablaze, our kitchens filled with the smells of nostalgia: apples bubbling into sauce, roasting squash, cinnamon, nutmeg, cider, warmth itself. The leaves as they spark into wild color just before they die are the world's oldest performance art, and everything we see is celebrating one last violently hued hurrah before the black and white silence of winter.” 

― Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way

PAINTING IT FORWARD

Don't miss the opportunity to have this beautiful original painting in your home in the next two weeks. Read more below.

28 x 42 inches
Oil on Canvas

If you visit my website you will see the current price of this newest painting. At this time I want to offer it to you at a PAINT IT FORWARD price.   To participate, here is what you need to do: (aka The Rules)
  1. Decide where you would hang this beauty.
  2. Think about your finances and decide what you could afford for the painting.       Let me at least tell you there is over $650 in supplies alone NOT including shipping.
  3. Write me an email telling me why you love this piece and what it says to you in its message.  In the email, share what you can offer.  Offers can be anywhere starting at the $650 plus shipping and up. A good estimate on Shipping is probably $65 unless you live close by and I can deliver it.  
I will be reading all the emails.  The reason for you wanting the painting and what it says to you speaks volumes to me. I need to be covered for my supplies and the shipping and if you can a tiny bit toward my time.  Normally if this was a smaller piece I could just give it away, but the amount of paint and supplies supersedes that give away amount. 

           I cannot wait to choose a winner for November for Homeward Bound!

From the Studio

Thank you!   I really enjoyed hearing from so many of you sharing your thoughts on the new website.  I tweaked a few things at your suggestions and am ready for the gift season ahead. It is so satisfying to feel like there is closure on something you have worked on for two weeks.

I also appreciate your lovely notes with sharing comments on my Studio Journal.
The Power of Scars brought in close to forty comments through email directly to me as well as comments on Facebook. 

Around the house... Sometimes I feel like I live in my computer room.  The Chunky Monkey takes two naps a day and we are so quiet not to wake him...shhhh.... Meanwhile he is walking everywhere.  In my mind I am singing "What do you do with a drunken sailor"  as his little steps still waver slightly. His new favorite toy is BERT from Sesame Street. They have deep conversations all day long.   Terry bought him a ball for his size and he loves it. He and Bert chase it around the house all day when he is not sleeping. 

The Advantage is now available... ten limited edition Giclee Prints on Stretched Canvas through October 4th. I limit what I have on Fine Art America, and I have been asked to run these specials for you in my newsletter and not just through social media. You can click on the link above or below where you see the painting. You can click here 

The Debate..  Well the debate did not go far on the horse paintings and doing 100 by Christmas. I only heard from a few of you, so I definitely will not go that route this year. Make sure you think about the HOMEWARD BOUND painting that I am sharing as a Paint it Forward. 


“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” 

― John Muir, The Mountains of California
