"Venice, a Love Shared" SOLD

“Venice, a Love Shared”
6 x 6in oil on museum quality panel
Ever notice how easy it is to share the things we love?  A favorite food, a good book, a new CD.  In fact, in our love of it, we are most anxious to press it on those around us, certain that as much pleasure it has brought  us it will surely do that and more for another.  Well, it strikes me that is how Venice is.  It is a place to be loved and shared.  An amazing place that “walks on water”, defying everything that makes sense for how a city is supposed to be.  And it’s this very oddity that makes it so sweet.  Gondolas that glide silently ‘tween marvelous walls that make us catch our breath.  Venice, a place to be shared, just for the love of it.

Gratitude Mission

#30Thanks Day 29  

Today I am thankful for something that may seem a bit silly.  My phone..:))  My little purple phone that I carry with me, stuffed in my purse, laid on the dash of my car, slipped in a pocket while painting.  It’s so small, can be annoying at times, and costs me money.  But…and this is a big  BUT…it allows me to hear my daughter’s sweet voice like she was standing in the next room, almost everyday, and she lives 2500 miles away.! It allowed me talk to my sister while she lived in Germany for 8 years and now keeps my in touch with my friend Bill who lives in Berlin.  I can talk to Ginger in Shanghai and do a radio show with Leslie in California (and we both did one from two different islands in Hawaii this past September!).  It even helps to catch Eddie when he is acting silly ……

  It sends me sweet notes from my hubby at the most unexpected times…:))   It lets me connect with friends who live both near and far away and make plans to see each other.  In a word, it doesn’t make me wait.  I can scarcely imagine if I could only talk to my girl the few times a year that she either flies home or I fly out to see her.  I would be one sad momma!  So today I am practicing active gratitude for my little phone and all the beautiful people in my life that I can reach out and “touch” any ole time I want!!
