Unlock Your Heart/Be Thankful!

So here it is November and it is that time of year when you
really want to reflect on what it is that you are thankful for. We really do need to be aware of our blessings throughout the entire year. But, somehow for most of us, that comes and goes in splurts depending on our mood. So as we approach Thanksgiving Day, take a moment or two and completely unlock your heart. Open up and see what it is that you are really thankful for. It does not have to be HUGE...there are so many small things that we overlook everyday, or just take for granted. Some things you hear alot of people say are: "IF ONLY"..."I WISH I HAD" ..."If I could go back.." "I should of said"...So here is my wish for you today...Unlock your heart...Do the IF ONLYS...Start the WISH I HADS..SAY THE THINGS YOU WANT TO SAY TO THOSE YOU LOVE...And go forward from here, be a little more open to your blessings. View a few of them everyday!! Cause once you start to do this....They just seem to pile up! And your life and your heart just opens up to all the possiabilities you only dreamed of before. I for one am thankful for just being able to write this and express how I feel this morning!

Your Wildest Imagination!

"I believe that you manifest what you want by who you think you are and what your wildest imagination can conceive"
This piece is going to reside in my friend, Carol's new kitchen! Now, Carol is one of those friends that I have had for some 25 years! When we were young mothers we spent a great deal of time together, but as we have grown it becomes less and less...Carol is one of those people however where time and space changes nothing between us, we just pull up a chair as if it were yesterday! I adore that about us! However, I do know that once I see her I realize how much I miss not seeing her!! LOL...So, I will make sure I do that more often, when I am thinking about calling....I will just call!! This is my wish for you today...That if you are thinking about a friend, make sure you give them a call, meet for coffee, talk, reconnect! Because good friends are hard to come by...and impossiable to replace!! THINK I WILL GO CALL CAROL NOW!!

LEAP!


There was a time when I painted lots of tin objects....Frogs, cats, dogs,birds, bird houses...I found this one in my studio when I was cleaning it the other day! (Yes, I do clean it every once in awhile!!) And the really funny thing about this Frog is that I haven't painted them in 5 years...and Sunday, well, I got an order for the FROG!! So I guess it pays to clean the studio every once in awhile!! LOL...So my wish for you today is to LEAP!!!! Leap forward, leap sideways, leap up....JUST LEAP!!!

Hatch Your Egg Today!!

I went to bed late and I was up early!! Nothing like running on 4 hours of sleep!! But, my creative juices were running high last night! (So what else is new?!)
The thing about this show is that if someone buys a piece, I cannot take it off the wall till I have something to replace it!! Now, there is an REASON not to sleep!! LOL
So I was working on replacing some of the pieces...and managed to make 3 small 5 by 7 altered pieces and one 11 by 14 framed piece! Hatch Your Egg Today is one of the smaller altered pieces! I have lots of little thumb nail sketches for some others! That seems to be the way it goes with me...I just plain go into over drive, so if I don't sketch them out when they appear to me, they somehow get lost in my memory bank!! So my wish for you today is two fold! I wish for you to hatch your egg today, whatever that may be! Color, paint, draw or write but get a hatching!! And I wish that you get lost in the process of that! Because once you do, you will find a happiness that you only dreamed about before today!

Going to a new Home in Manhattan!

This piece has been bought and will be residing in Manhattan!
I am so excited about this! I love this piece and know that the new owner now will be able to see this and SMILE every day! This show is reaffirming to me the true belief that I have held in my heart since I was small...I was meant to do this...meant to share who I am and the feelings that I can place on paper, wood, and anything else I can get my hands on!! I often do not tell my truth, to others, let alone to myself.
But this show has awaken me, awaken my passions even further, awaken my committment to myself, awaken my joy! And that is my wish for you today, that you AWAKEN.....look around you, listen to your heart, and BELEIVE!!!! BELIEVE in YOURSELF!!!!!

SOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!







My one woman show has been up for a week and tomorrow is my GRAND OPENING! Here are the unframed paintings that have been sold or are spoken for already! I am so excited and I am floating on air! As usual fear comes to me when I venture into projects like these. I feel like a hostess throwing a party and then wondering if anyone will come! These pieces let me know that people will come! The one thing about my art is that it comes from a place in my heart, and I think that the people who buy these pieces feel that within them too. Or it speaks to them in some sort of way! This part makes me smile deeply! I am delighted to know that these pieces will now reside in the hearts and the homes of people who just HAD TO HAVE THEM! That is my wish for you today also. That you let your heart speak to you and that you follow your dreams. I can tell you first hand today........YOU WILL SOAR!!!!!!!!
