Be Kind to One Another

Why is it so difficult for people to just be kind to one another?  As I sat down to write this blog post I immediately found myself becoming irritated and upset.  It seemed like all I could think about was all the fussing, complaining and arguing that I am seeing among so many these days.  I knew that was the last thing that I wanted to write about, but that […]

Creating An Art Legacy

As an artist I have often wonder what my art legacy would look like.  Would my art continue to live on long after I die, or would it die right along with me?  Not really knowing the answer, since I am unable to predict the future, I decided to take matter into my own hands and see if I could create the legacy that I wanted to leave behind. For […]

Studio On The Go… Again!

On The Go Again!

It Truly Is A Wonderful World

When was the last time you stopped to think about what a wonderful world it is that we are so blessed to live in?  It seems like so much energy is spent these days by people telling us all the negative things about our world.  What if for just a minute we turned off all the outside noise and just spend some time ourselves looking at everything that is so […]

Yes, My Dear, Dreams Really Do Come True!

Either you believe that dreams can come true or you don’t.  If you don’t, there is nothing I can say that can change that and I’m not even going to try.   It took me a really long time to figure out dreams.  I knew that I had plenty of them and more than that, I knew that I wanted them NOW!  I can’t tell you how many times I felt […]

Has Life Got You Feeling Overwhelmed?

Do You Let Procrastination Rule Over You?

I remember when I first wanted to really start my art career, it seemed liked I was struggling with procrastination almost every day.  Now that I have my art career going, it seems like I am struggling with procrastination almost every day.  You would think that this would get easier, but for me, it hasn’t. Actually, that is a good thing!  I have learned that through my times of procrastination, […]
