I hope you're doing well today. Well, I have some good and encouraging news to share with you. Let me start by asking you this simple question. Have you ever dreamed of something you wanted that you could see it and even taste it, but suddenly, it slipped away for reasons beyond your control? Did this experience destroy your hopes, or did it make you strive to get it back. Well, I'm about to tell you a family story that is 40 years in the making.
I hope you are doing well today. Well, I'm excited to share my newest piece with you. It's called, "Lion of Judah."
I was inspired by my son who has made remarkable progress over the years after the sudden onset of Autism when he was 3 years old. It came out of nowhere! He was born normal, met his milestones, he could speak, and people thought he and his brother (20 months older) were twins. Those were the days, but it stopped suddenly when he turned three. He lost his ability to speak, I couldn't connect with him emotionally, and it was scary.
I hope your year has started well for you and your loved ones. I wish you and your loved ones a blessed New Year.
As I reflect on 2019, it's impressive to see that I started my full-time journey as an artist only seven months ago. I sent out my first newsletter in July, and it was new, scary, and a bit stressful for me. It wasn't that I didn't appreciate the concept of writing. It was that I was scared to be vulnerable. I didn't want to share more about my personal life and I was nervous about people's perception of me once they knew about the things that made me "tick" as an artist.
Vacations are meant to be relaxing and fun. They’re supposed to leave beautiful memories of the places visited, food eaten, and new friends that were made. My trip to Alaska is a different story. The beauty of the region will always remain on my mind, but thoughts of what I saw has changed my perspective on the issue of global warming. It’s real, it’s sad, but you and I can change things for the better for the next generation.
Looking at a piece of Art hung the wrong way is like looking at someone in front of you wearing an awful wig. You're tempted to yank it off or yell out, "What on earth were you thinking!?" Yes, we can both agree that the wig looks terrible, but did you know that many apartments and home walls are like this lousy wig. You look at the walls, and they look a bit off or unbalanced. So what can you do? Well, follow these three steps, and you'll become a pro at hanging art correctly.
Have you ever been shocked and left speechless by something you encountered? Was the experience as a result of something you saw, heard, tasted, or felt? Did that feeling of shock change your overall attitude or perception for the better or for worse? Now, I'd like you to take a moment and think about these questions. As for me, I have been in this state before, but only once did I feel SHOCKWAVES flow through me as I stood speechless staring at my canvas. I kept asking myself, "How could this be?" "How was it possible?
Have you ever been asked a question that you thought was difficult to answer correctly? Have you been asked questions that have made you ask yourself, "Are you serious?" or better yet, "How do you expect me to answer that?" I'm sure you've been in this situation before. As for me, it happens more often than I care to admit because I have teenage kids. However, today was different. My 15-year-old son approached me unexpectedly while I was in my studio and asked, "Mom, why do you create Abstract Art?"
