THE ART OF HEALING

I have been painting and just thought I'd stop long enough to take a couple quick photos for you.  First I'll show, then tell.


FRESH START
GRACE ABOUNDS

Because I'm experimenting I created two similar paintings.  I don't know if thats odd, but I guess I don't care because I am painting for me.  Guess I'm getting a bit self-centered these days.  I have spent many years creating for others so this is very freeing and healing.  Tim is so happy that he doesn't seem to notice the house is turned upside down and we are eating at the coffee table.  I think of Jonathan a lot while painting.  I have a feeling that's what happens for so many others.  Being truly creative is like a healing salve, lifting the spirit; cleansing the soul.  


Tim and I just celebrated 30 years of wedded bliss.  No really.  I am still very much in love with Tim; my Jesus in blue jeans.   I thought I'd have more time to entertain you with photos from the old wedding album, but alas, too many boxes remain piled high in the storage units.  Just imagine me with a wreath of flowers on my head and Tim sporting a mustache, oh, and quite a bit more hair and you are good to go.  xoxo

  1. it's called "catharsis" which means basically working out your feelings through doing something. It's an amazing process. I love your paintings.

  5. I'm glad that you can channel your emotions into something physical and positive. Such an important form of expression! I want to tell you that I love these paintings, but I also know it doesn't matter b/c they're for you.... so pretend I didn't say anything. :)
