Every once in a while she sends a love note to her mailing list. Today, amidst traffic jams and undercooked burgers and noisy hips and disappointing yard workers and Comcast voice mail hell, I spent first a few minutes, then some more, then a very long time looking at the images and feeling peace descend over my shoulders like a warm blanket.
She said that I could share her words and pictures with you, and so I have. I hope it brings you the same joy that it brought to me.
Enhanced by Art
I believe that engagement with art can change your life, sometimes profoundly. While I hope that my art in some small way enhances the lives of those who purchase one of my paintings, my own life has been greatly enhanced by the art of others.
