Imagine

I am amazed by what is possible by simply imagining it is so.
One of the most wonderful things about making art for me is the experience of creating: unlocking mysteries and making new discoveries. The other is when I can share my discoveries and inspire others to create art and also make their own discoveries. We enrich our lives when we share what we have & know.

Creative Courage

I believe that creative courage is something that everyone can develop. It may always be a challenge to deliver what our hearts desire, but don't be convinced that it is not worth the effort or that it has no real value. The art that we create is part of
a beautiful journey of expression, knowledge & personal reality.
Make the art you love & be happy!!

What does LOVE look like?

It may seem kind of funny to ask this question without posting a photo, but I am curious about where & what people see as LOVE.....
There are many times when it is right next to us, but we may be too busy to notice.
For me LOVE looks like coffee in the morning that my husband brings to me in bed.
Or when he fixes my computer with some magic code that I don't understand!
Also, there are times when my son Brandon gives me a look, that says he gets me & loves me very much.......
That look makes my day!!
Well, however you see LOVE, I hope it finds you today.

Peace LOVE & Art

HaPPY SunDAY!

Growing up in my house meant that when Sunday came around,
it was for family, friends, football & spaghetti! I always enjoyed watching my mom create spaghetti sauce from scratch
(I get a lot of my creative nature from her).....
I can almost smell some sauce cooking right now!
My Dad and brothers would be watching & coaching the NFL,
that is how I became a football fan, enjoying time with them.
We make choices in our lives and eventually they end up
creating our life.......
