It’s On!! This Summer has been filled with pillow purchases. I had no idea that they would be this popular! They are selling on Etsy, Society 6 and Redbubble at lightning speed. People everywhere are going crazy for artsy pillows. And who can blame them? You cannot walk into Target or Walmart and find luxurious home decor like these with so much original art. And the price is right too! Bricks and mortar stores are so limited. You only get a few to choose from. But online, the possibilities are endless!
Maybe it’s the kid in me, but I picture people all over the World smacking each other with my fun pillows. 😉

Are you trying to hold on to your youth? Your children? A dysfunctional family? A job that isn’t right for you? A marriage that doesn’t work? That D you got in trigonometry in high school?
So many of us cling tightly to what is familiar or comfortable. Others bind themselves to the past and allow it to punish them for their entire lives. Change is scary. Some just cannot picture a life different than the one they currently have. I have learned that the harder you grasp something, the more it hurts when it slips away from you. The secret to life is “letting go”. Also known as acceptance. This has nothing to do with giving up and everything to do with knowing when it is time to move on.
I had a few years of uncertainty and fear as I moved into middle age. I was panicked at the thought of my little girl out in the big mean World all by herself. My marriage had a major hiccup one Summer and I was not sure we would make it. I noticed that I was starting to lose the interest of men when I walked into a room. My body and face were aging and I did not know how to handle it. I was also very confused about what I wanted to do with my business. I considered shutting it down and taking a different path by getting back into Holistic Medicine. I call those years “the worry years”.
Slowly I started to realize that I could not hold onto all of those things that I wanted to remain the same. More importantly, I did not want to. I discovered it was safe to let go and just celebrate where I was headed. I was not only physically different, I was also mentally and emotionally transformed. At 45 I am now excited to watch my daughter leave for college and blossom into her own life. I will not be keeping her bedroom as a shrine where I can focus on the past. Instead it will be converted into a sanctuary for yoga and thinking. She will be welcome to visit anytime, but I will use that space for mediation. I have learned to work “with” my partner instead of “against” him as we weather life’s bumps. I am less selfish. I have also decided that I will not be artificially preserving my youthful face. It’s gone and no amount of face lifting, injecting or sand blasting is going to bring it back. It’s o.k. to have wrinkles and fine lines. In fact, if you allow yourself to let go of what society dictates is beautiful, you can actually admire them for what they really are: signs of a life that has endured numerous storms and celebrated many triumphs.
As for my career that is still being pondered. I have a few new ideas about what direction I would like to move in. But whatever I decide, the process leading up to it will not be fraught with anxiety. No, these are truly “the wonder years” for me. The dictionary tells us that “wonder” means: a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. And that is exactly where I am. Bring it on life!

“How Deep Is Your Love”
“The Roots Of Love Run Deep” is by far one of my most popular paintings. I am not certain if it is the design…the colors or the title that attracts people from all over the world. I have shipped prints to Japan….Australia….even small Greek islands. Love truly is the Universal language…I am glad that I speak it.
How deep is YOUR love?

You create something beautiful of course! It’s not just lemonade. 😉 I have been super busy working on my licensing partner’s requests and commissions. I also have an upcoming show scheduled for March 2nd here in Tampa (more on that soon). But I still find time to create as it is a MUST for my soul. It clears my mind and calms my heart.

A Slam Dunk!!
This year you’ve got this……bag the traditionally hyped up gifts or if you must, make them REALLY SPECIAL. It’s time to think outside of the box. Consider a beautiful piece of artwork that will show your love and affection! It will last a LIFETIME! Every time your love looks at the piece hanging on their wall or sitting on their desk they will swell up with a warm feeling. Seriously….you will blow them away!
Wanna pump it up a notch and SCORE major points? Sure you do! Write a love note on the back of the gorgeous print you just bought them. Perhaps a Neruda poem (look it up….they will melt!)?
Planning on proposing or giving jewelry? Why be ordinary? Tape the engagement ring to he back of the romantic print!! Imagine that…..a beautiful ring and a piece of artwork to mark the occasion for the rest of their life! Any jewelry can be taped to the back with a love note hand written by you in permanent marker right on the canvas.
Do they love the way you smell? This idea will knock their socks off! Spray your scent on the back of the print before wrapping and presenting….mmmmm It’s all YOU plus oh so romantic!
Or how about this? She has been jonesing for a really expensive perfume….spray it onto the back of the print. Give her the art first and let her take in her coveted smell. Then present her with the bottle!
Planning on Giving Flowers? Go ahead and take it to the NEXT LEVEL! Add a sweet and thoughtful little canvas print with the bouquet. And do not forget to write the love note on the back!
Other Great Ideas!! Write some lyrics to your “couple” song on the back. Tape a picture of the two of you to the back with a special note, date or concert ticket.
Flowers die, candy disappears and perfume runs out. But art is timeless!! These great DEALS on beautiful gallery wrapped canvas prints will guarantee a SCORE on Valentine’s Day!!

Love is a messy business sometimes. My “Hearts On Fire” painting is one of my most often requested commissions. In the past I was only able to offer custom work and small prints of this lovely piece. However, I have been able to digitally remaster the original to create a beautiful print. Now love is easy to own. 🙂

Someone sitting next to you on the bus may be cybering. And your Mom is probably cybering your Christmas gift as you read this! Ha ha

I have always had a fascination with light and shadow. In my latest work titled “Violet Blue” I have used aqua as light and violet blues as shadow to create depth and dimension. It has a fluidity as well that evokes a sense of watery movement. Sit back for a moment and relax your eyes and just let your vision get absorbed into the light….feel the calm energy that fills your mind….

Like most artists, I am most happy when I am creating. When it comes to the selling part it takes a great mental effort to “enjoy” the process. It is tedious and monotonous to do computer work. Listing and promoting. Listing and promoting. Answering emails. Ordering supplies. If only a wealthy patron would sponsor me so all I had to do was paint and create all day without even considering the business of selling art. While I am still waiting for that fantasy to come true, I soothe myself with those moments of utter jubilant joy when I can escape the dirty work and just create. O.k., painting is dirty too, but a good kind of dirty. 😉
Please enjoy my latest painting titled “Jubilee”. It was a real treat to create!
