JESUS SAVES

“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly.”  The fox to the Little Prince A friend of mine was upset.  She’s one of those who sees the world on a perilous journey in a hand basket.  Trying to console her I suggested it would be nice if Jesus came, in person, to…

NEW YORK

“What you focus on expands.” I just got back from my week in New York with two lady friends.  And first of all, I have to set something straight.  On October eight I posted about a gentleman who canceled our use of his Air B&B apartment two days before we were to leave.  Not true.…

SMALLER MOSAICS

“Art is a line around your thoughts.” ~ Gustav Klimt After my large mosaic-type painting was finished I wanted to paint more but I wanted a reprieve from one month type projects.  That led me to paint on smaller surfaces, generally stretched canvas, and draw patterns with larger sections. One of the first of these…

BACK TO THE ART TOUR

“Art is therapy.” For some reason, known only to my inner self, I decided to draw a design using circles, divide the rings that resulted, paint the spaces that formed, and attach a mirror to the center.  So this is the first piece that came out of that idea.  I think it’s painted on a…

CLEAN AND BRIGHT

“Honestly.” The other day I did something that was outside the norm for me.  I hired a cleaning service to come in and, you guessed it, clean my house.  I didn’t come from that part of society where cleaners were hired.  I came from the section where moms stayed home and were responsible to clean…

CAVE PAINTING

“Creativity is contagious.  Pass it on.”  Albert Einstein One of my favorite art pieces in my home was not actually made by me, but rather by a friend who was visiting.  She looked around the family room in our previous home and said, “You need something on that wall.”  She happened to be reading a…

COPPER QUILT

“The earth without ‘art’ is just ‘eh'”. For my next trick…  One day my husband came home and found me painting a large piece of card stock.  Yes, I do all sorts of things with card stock.  I was applying metallic paints because I thought it looked good and because I’d received a package that…

COLOR BURST

“No risk, no art.” Recently, some friends visited and I took them on a home tour of my creations.  Although I’m not a professionally trained artist I don’t let that stop me from making stuff, as I call what I do.  In fact, I think not knowing the rules is a bit of an advantage.…

HONORED GUEST

“I love you more than yesterday.  Yesterday you got on my nerves.”   I recently watched a TED Talk given by Anita Moorjani.  She’s someone that started to die/died and then came back to share her experience.  Such presentations generally annoy me.  Seeing, however, that this was a TED Talk, something I respect, and she…
