InfinityHello All!
It’s been awhile since I
have posted.  Too tell the truth,
I’ve just been enjoying the summer too much.
But here’s an image that I printed yesterday for
an art fair I will be in tomorrow .  And I want
to share its infinite joy…

Enlighten

You get to the point where your demons get
smaller and smaller and you get bigger and bigger.”
August Wilson

EnlightenSorry I’ve been away so long…
I travelled to the West Coast where
I worked on a number of my collections
including an exciting new documentary project
with a friend from Seattle that’s related to my Phantoms.
Here’s a new one that I took in downtown Los Angeles…
Happy to be Back!

Batik 1Here’s the first post
of another new series that I’m calling Batik.
It’s taken a lifetime to let myself go and see what happens.
It’s also taken as long to understand that creativity is an everlasting
process; even when we’re dormant, think we’re doing nothing,
our creativity is busy processing.

Peace

Peace is available if we choose it.
In spite of chaos and unsolved problems
around us, all is well.
Melody Beattie

PeaceHere is my third post of my new Dream
series that I’ve discovered this winter. This morning
I woke up excited to teach a yoga class for my instructor
who asks me on occasion. Ready to go, I hopped in my car but alas,
the battery was dead; there was no way I could get there so I had to cancel.
For a few hours, I fought the anxiety that creeps in when things don’t
work out or are out of my control. Then I remembered this
quote from a passage called Peace that I read this
morning in my daily reader.

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams
and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined,
he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
