Branching Out

Branching Out

Loving seeing in a new way the flowers, trees and plants this spring.  Having the freedom to breathe and enjoy.  The last three years spring was just a season with allergies.  This year without the burden of having a gallery I’m almost giddy with the freedom to really enjoy spring.  Don’t get me wrong there is a reason for everything that I have been given to do by faith.  Now with this season of growth I can celebrate.  I’ve been doing my new website  and painting on “The Garden Of Eden” in a new way.  Maybe that is why I’m seeing really seeing spring.

It’s Amazing that I’ve had my gallery for three full years. But times are a changing and me too. God has directed me to move on for new vistas. Closing is a lot of work but it is cleansing at the same time. I have been releasing a lot of stuff. Right now I’ll be showing my art in a storage facility and painting in my garage until God show me where to go next. I’m so relived not to have to be open. Now I’ll have time for updating my website Email me at

The journey continues with your belief and faith in God and yourself. With all the external chatter out there of negativity, you have to have the strength and boldness to move forward.
If I didn’t have my faith in the Holy Spirit I would be defeated before I start. Life is always going to hand you lemons but together with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit you can have peace for whatever comes your way. Leave the bad behind and focus on the good.

Left Behind in the Tech World

It seems that there is so much going on in the tech world and I’m not keeping up.  I’ve tried various avenues yet I don’t know the geek language enough anymore

to move me forward.  But I do have God  and the Holy Spirit to guide me.  So no whining please.  I’ll just have peace and not get frustrated.



Where Do I go From Now To?

‘I live in the desert and I get cabin fever.  So I get stir crazy and start thinking too much.   That is when I get into trouble.  Does that happen to you?  I haven’t written for a while because   I  think, think, think  I need to be inspired.  The reality is if I just start to write or paint the words will flow or the colors start to magically appear.  Why do I waste the time thinking instead of doing?  I’m basing my thoughts on feelings and when I’m stir crazy my feelings are all wrong.  I question most everything.  Having faith helps me through this nagging and now I can start to settle down, relax and just go with the flow. I don’t have to know where do I go from now to?

I’ve really been blessed.  I’ve had such wonderful events that I didn’t pay for that came to me unexpectedly. Yesterday featured my work and she asked me.  Phoenix Home and Garden published 2 of my paintings within this last year. Scottsdale’s cox communications government channel did a 30 minute segment on me and I was on the Hallmark channel in 2004.  I’m just amazed how when I’m depending on God even though I still put myself out there.  I’m meeting great people along the way. What a fantastic journey this is. Image
