What's Been Up

It seems as if I have almost fallen into that 2 week lull again. I have not been as busy as I desire to be, but there are some changes that are being made. Some decisions that definitely must take place. To all of you that have read the last blog, Graham is doing well. I am sure that moving at 86 is not all that fabulous, but she is adjusting well. My mother and I are also adjusting to things around here. I commend my mother for the patience that she has had with my Graham in the last couple of weeks...it has gotten a lot better. Our own individual time to do some things that we love has been cut short and we are adjusting to that too. So in essence...we are all adjusting.

My work...well, it is work. I am still on the buttons series, and I can see that this series will occupy my time until about mid-summer. I am excited because I have that passion for my artwork again. Passion that I have not had for a long time. It's such a breathe of fresh air to know that you are where you are supposed to be. I know I have said that plenty of times within this blog, but I can never say it enough. If you have ever been in a place where you thought that your love was lost, then you smell what I am cooking.

The grace of God...that is the only way to explain it from my perspective. His grace is absolutely amazing and never ceases to prove just how much He loves me.

Yes...these last couple of blogs have been rather personal. No...it is has not all been about my art directly. However, indirectly...it has. Inspiration is born out of life. My life, your life, and the life of others. Life is what creates art.

Pearls of Wisdom:
Thank GOD for life!

Hey you two! I can't wait to see the outcome either, to be honest. They are going to be in someone's gallery. I don't know who's yet, but they will. So in essence, yes, they will be for sale. I may make and sell prints as well.

Torrance I will be posting more pics soon. I am almost done stiching the buttons on the first one. It has taken quite some time, but I don't regret it one bit.

Thanks for the support yall! You just don't know how much it means to me.

Be blessed!

life is the well from whence our brushes must dip. For there is no greater inspiration for an artist than the raw unbridled ecstasy of existing.

Tms your words ring true on so many levels. Again, I could not have said it any better if I wrote it myself!

Thanks for visiting and don't be a stranger!
