When I painted a chair two years ago for the AIRdirondack Art Project in my community I couldn't begin to imagine where it would travel and this afternoon I learned that it will be raffled to support a wonderful cause - Community Links who provide support and services to individuals and families. I really am honoured. It's interesting as this announcement follows on the heels of trusting your intuition in the class I'm currently taking. The reason it connects for me is that when I first got involved in this project, my vision was to create community, both among the local artists and in general in our town. I trusted my intuition as I helped to begin this project which is in its third year and which has received amazing support from our local businesses as well as the artists and towns people and I just feel strongly that this project will continue to grow in a very positive way. Though I no longer coordinate it, I am happy to still feel connected to it. It certainly doesn't hurt that my heart lies in stillness and growing roots, that chairs have been and I feel will always be a major part of my life as an artist. Now I have to practice trusting myself even more as I know there are things to let go of and others to embrace. It's a constant journey, and though it has its challenges, I am grateful to be a part.
