I am currently trying to make a list of affirmations.  I will then translate into some lovely cards to look at and celebrate on a daily basis, and I can remain positive and motivated.  Despite the fact that the past 6 months have been such an energy vampire (buying/selling/renovating a house) I have had such an awesome year.  In the middle of a recession I have still managed to still sell a good bit of art – not as much as I would like – but I am still able to reap the fruits of my labor.  Of course I need to work harder.  And now that I have finally moved and am (almost) settled in my new home, I am listing my affirmations (not aspirations) for all to see – so that I can remain (somewhat) accountable. (And yes, I realize some are not as succinct as they could be,  there are probably too many, and may sound redundant, but they are MINE.)      SCROLL DOWN

  3. I simply love, love, love your entire blog. It resonates with me on several different levels. I found you from a link to your blog on “Artsy Forager.” Thank you for sharing all that you do…and your artwork is gorgeous. I only wish I could view it in person. I have the distinct feeling that two-dimensional photographs do not even BEGIN to showcase its brilliance. Thank you so much for sharing ‘you.’
