And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.

This painting is about ‘pause’. Pausing, breathing, slowing down … stopping the mind from racing about from one thing to another.

I look at this pond and feel that pause. That air entering my lungs. That quieting of my mind.

Some days are harder than others, but I am working on it.

I’m not sure if I believe in luck. They say that koi are lucky. Am I painting them because they are lucky and I need all the luck I can get right now? No, I am painting them because they are beautiful and tranquil and  vibrant against a dark background.  Would I like to believe in luck?  I have been very lucky in my life and I know that some people have been very unlucky.  We can’t  make our luck.  Sometimes we are handed a very unlucky situation and no matter what, finding the silver lining is impossible. I can think of several examples but not in my life. I am lucky that the  bad things that have happened to me have  most often also been  the best things that has ever happened to me.

If you can survive it, perhaps their is silver lining to be found.

I’m still looking.

I’m open to it.

It’s been awhile. The girls are back in school and I am back in the studio.  Sigh…it feels good. I think that they would agree, structure is good after a two  month free for all.  They are loving school as much as I am loving painting. I am also working on two portraits that are coming along nicely.
It really is nice to be back. Thanks for your on going love and support.  I am still waiting for  answers regarding health but I am trying to put that aside and just enjoy right now.

This painting in progress:
