“A Fondness for All Things French”
6 x 6in oil on museum quality panel
Love. I love so many things–including Eddie and you. When we say we love something it is, I think, because of the joy it adds to our life. We love a good cup of coffee with a dear friend, we love the feel of a soft shirt against our body, we love home-grown catnip (okay, maybe only Ed loves that..), we love the smell of the air after a rain, we love our favorite song–played loudly while we pretend we are actually a great dancer (not that I know anyone who does this—ahem). We love a lot of things, from very tiny to very great, and all because of the way it makes us feel inside. Take a moment to look around and think of all the things you love–from the tiny to the great. Kinda fills your heart up all the way to your eyes, doesn’t it??
So here I sit on an island, with a dear friend who delights my heart, looking at water in an unbelievable shade of blue while dreaming of France too (we can love lots of things at once–gotta love that option!!). Love is such a wondrous thing, no matter how you shape it or what you use it on. Today is your day to take on an extreme awareness of all the things in your life that you love and how much joy it adds to you..:))) Even write it down–if you have enough paper on hand!
So I am in Hawaii, thinking of France and writing about love and you and Eddie. In a few days I will be in Kentucky, thinking of Hawaii, writing about Italy and painting France. And of course, fighting with Eddie. But I love to fight with Eddie–it keeps me on my toes and makes me realize that I love the fact that Eddie doesn’t have a twin….
In Other News:
- The California Workshop was amazing. I was sharing with a friend last evening that it was that and more due to the individual artists who were there. Hearing them share their stories, one by one, was just one of the best moments of the workshop for me. Beautiful, beautiful women. I was honored to be part of their lives for that 4 days. I created a page on my blog to cover it a bit more so you can check it out by clicking here.
- The book that Eddie and Phyllis are going to be part of is nearing completion. You can get a sneak peek of all the great artists work included in this by clicking here.
- This week on Artists Helping Artists which both Leslie Saeta, my co-host, and I will be up early for (she is in Hawaii this week too) our guest is Maria Brophy–an expert on art licensing. For artists, creating multiple streams of income is vital and Maria has worked with her husband and his art to do just that. You can join us live or download it to your MP3 player for listening to later. Go to Artists Helping Artists for details
