Gratitude

Last year ended on a very busy and creative note. My Gallery show was such a success, old and new friends attended and enjoyed my new images. My favorite painting entitled "Image" sold to an old friend I had not seen in over 20 years. Our local new paper ran a story about my art and how it healed a broken heart. I now paint with joy and discovery. The response to that story generated a lot of mail from others who had similar stories. I am always astounded by the commonalities in the world. Just recently I volunteered to read to a third grade class and it was like living a dream. I always wanted to teach but along the way plan B happened and I am at last living another dream. "With the heady scent of lilac in every nook and cranny how could one not live a bodacious life."
