Falling in love with life......
Hello Friends.... My how time flies! A lot has unfolded since my last update... I'll try to keep this short & sweet! Every Friday I get up and drive over to my most favorite yoga center in the world. It's a place I know will never disappear. A solid ground that will never give way. A place which will always be. HOME. This particular day I decided to sit in the gardens after class. Just to sit, reflect, & witness the beauty. I've been so extremely grateful for the decision to quit the soul-less job & the way things have locked in & felt SO RIGHT. The creative flood gates opening wide & all the magical people & creatures I'm encountering in my day-to-day life are sure signs I'm on the right path.... There have been too many signs for me to even begin to blow-off or ignore as just happenstance. I am feeling increasingly light & buoyant... I've just put to words what this all means to me now --
I AM at home with myself...
After walking many paths...... I am finally at home with myself.
I sat there absorbing the plants & air. Noticing an earthy little lizard fellow, sitting right next to me, just so matter-of-factly eating a delicious bee. Right then & there I was struck with this big truth I come to time & time again - everything we ever need on our paths will be provided, EVERYTHING (good, bad, or indifferent)... Everything is nourishing us. Step by glorious step. So I left with this feeling of certainty & overall well being... Pure excitement for what lies ahead. On the way home I had to stop at the art store to replenish my paper for prints. While there I got an email from Mary, the manager of The Jeanine Taylor Folk Art Gallery in Sanford. She wanted to purchase a print of "Explore" and have it delivered to the gallery where they were having their monthly art walk! I was over-the-moon... I love Mary & I love this gallery... Its one of the first touchstones that inspired me to ever pick up a paint brush in the first place. Delivering prints here was a proud moment indeed. Mary gifted me with such genuine heartfelt feedback. It meant so much to me... and inspired me greatly. Yet another precious stone in my path... (Thank you Mary!)
That same night we went to another little street show in downtown Deland. The 4th Friday of every month "The Nest" hosts a little mini-street-festival. While tip-toeing around The Florida Victorian (my favorite treasure hunting haunt IN THE WORLD) I ended up meeting and falling in love with Anna Tomczak who kindly invited me to her 100+ year old house & studio for some easter egg painting. I will share pictures from her place in a separate post. It's a dream studio I tell you, a dream!
In other news.... People have been asking about originals... I'm happy to say I've loaded up the shop with all NEW originals. AND-and-and I'm going to be offering a sale very soon on certain originals to make roooooom so I can vroooom around my studio & make more art. If you want to be first to know, sign up for my wee-little-newsletter in the upper right! Otherwise, just keep an eye on my shop/blog/twitter/facebook/what-have-you.
Sending you much love & windows of airy goodness,
