Preparing for What's Next

     You've undoubtedly been hearing about the fires that have been burning in California this past month as well as the floods last month in the midwest. By nature's hand, we are once again aware of the ever-changing cycles of life. Through it all we are given opportunities to create anew and contemplate the best and most precious. And, we are reminded of the strength and resilience of the human spirit. Together our big global family is growing and, I believe, spiraling toward greater awareness of ourselves, each other and our place in the whole. To inspire you to that end, I've included a few affirmations and words of wisdom from Religious Science Ministers Michelle Medrano and Michele Whittington.
     During this time of heat, smoke and fire, I found myself painting with even more brilliant color than usual, capturing the intensity of the experience with my brush. Here's an example of what I mean. It's called "Blazing GBlazing Glory - 12 x 24 original acryliclory" and I sold it at the Farmer's Market this week in Petaluma. "Strength" "Heart of Allowing" and "Fire Heart" (shown below) are new as well.
     Speaking of change and the  inspiration that comes with it, I'm planning something wonderful. As you know, I am most blessed and at home in a retail environment where I can create art while communing with you ... my friends, family and fans. An opportunity is brewing on the gulf coast of Florida, and it is exciting me with adventure, newness, and limitless possibilities. A midwesterner myself, having spent the first forty years of my life in Minnesota, I've been in California since 1988 (with 3 years in Oregon in the mix as well). Now, I'm ready to explore another part of our great country. I will share more with you as plans unfold.

Earth Oceans 24" x 24" original acrylic on canvas     Celebrate water with Earth Oceans, a 24 x 24 acrylic on canvas of our beautiful planet from virtual space. Teeming with life of all things sea, earth and air, this painting provides a focus for keeping the bigger picture vivid in your envisioning. Who we are makes a difference. What we do makes a difference. Whatever it is that you are envisioning, believe it into being.
     By the way, I'm selling my furniture and starting fresh in my new adventure in Florida. If you were in the gallery in Sausalito and remember the "Dance your own dance" mural on wood that graced the garden at 21 Princess St and hung on the door at the original location ... it's for sale. I am also selling a beautiful oil by a West Marin artist, Kathleen Lipinski, that I inherited from my brother's estate. If you're a fan of the hills of west marin, you might want to add "Mount Tamalpais from Sleepy Hollow" to your collection.
     That's the latest from Heartful Art. I am thinking of you, sending love, and creating more beautiful art for you, your family and friends. Please pass on my website to them.

Whatever is next, we can all simply take one step at a time and keep our focus on what we treasure, love and appreciate. We are victors. We are amazing.
