Secret Hope

Patty Griffin has this fantastic song called Nobody's Cryin'. She says the song is about everyone hanging on during the weird changing times in our world.  I can't get the song out of my head!  I listened to the whole album over and over as I painted this one.

 "...may the voices inside you that fill you with dread
Make the sound of thousands of angels instead"

Art is my therapy and here is another session. And something in me believes I am meant to share it.  Secret Hope.

Creating Your Own

...happiness. I can create my own happiness was the lesson I learned during my trip to Greece over a decade ago. I remember the timing of the lesson well because of the precious photos that were taken on that trip. You could see it on our faces. I'm so grateful for the snap shots. Especially yesterday when I painted this one. I needed to remember. I need to share. That is why I am an artist. I need to re-create. Creating Your Own
