"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.

after







it seems i am always apologizing for crappy pictures.  you would think with auto focus my photos would be a bit more in focus.  oh well...

the sale was a bit disappointing this time around.  seems furniture was the people's choice.  sold a few pieces, and meg sold three paintings.

i am now trying to put my studio back in some kind of order and resting...

Beautiful display ladies, all that colour so inviting. I'm seeing that trend as well, seems people are looking for furniture artist have painted and a lot of artist are doing just that in my neck of the woods.

lOVE THE COMMENTS OF THINGS BEING READY FOR THE NEXT SHOW....BUT I KNOW YOU ARE EXHAUSTED FROM PREPARING.
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE COMMENT OF WHAT A BLESSING IT IS TO HAVE A TIME TO SHOW YOUR CREATIVE ABILITIES WITH YOUR PRECIOUS DAUGHTER SHOWING HER CREATIVITY RIGHT BESIDE YOU.
YOU ARE INCREDIBLY TALENTED AND DO NOT LET THE ENEMY YOU ARE NOT VALUED.

XXOO
