Last weekend was a bit of a difficult one for me, and so it is at these times that I make a special point of hitting the studio when I feel low. And I also try to remember to focus on gratitude when I know how much support I get from family and friends. I am so grateful for the galleries that share my work as this year already 23 paintings have found new homes. My family is well and happy. Our house looks lovely now that the hail damage from last year has been repaired. My role as the Arts + Culture Coordinator at our public library is wonderful as are the people I work with. We found the cutest replacement (the Boler Funkmobile) for our previous trailer that burned down when it was getting hail damage repairs. The books I've had the pleasure of devouring have been one great read after another. I've been enjoying the greatest green tea lattes. And not only did I accomplish so much in the way of art, today I feel great.
