Grateful 

On this day, a few years ago, I recall a certain pull. It wasn’t a tug – much less a push. 

I understood, confused as I was, that certain things will come to pass – while others cannot be avoided. 

Today I am grateful for all that I am, was and will become. Grateful to be embraced by loved ones, to have loved those who came before us and those that are yet to arrive. 

I eat, have shelter, water and sun. The air, our earth, the birds flying high. The oceans majestic, the stars in the sky. That magnetic moon, it’s gravity unavoidable. The green of the grass, the trees shading all- and that sky, Oh, that sky- such astounding hues! 

I know, it seems simple- but that is all. Nothing else matters as much as these-

There’s nothing much better than the simplest things.

Wishing everyone a very happy, safe Thanksgiving. Mostly, that we all recall to be Grateful for all of the simplest things.

Hiatus Over In a Flash

Hello dearest friends, family and followers!

I’m here today to touch base with everyone since I’ve been busy with many things.

As always, Art is a practice I continue and quite honestly feel ill without. In between the seemingly endless responsibilities, I try to at least sketch ~ anything! It keeps me going, focused and sane. Continue reading Hiatus Over In a Flash

New Painting In Gallery

Hey everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed a nice weekend wherever you are. Changes in the season are cause for celebration as leaves and flowers bloom everywhere. It’s a gorgeously warm day here in the New York City area and that alone is enough to test my patience. The reason is an urgent need to work on projects, while thinking about going outdoors. I think a little walk away from the usual is in order! I find it’s a great idea to step away from whatever we do at home, even if for a little while. Later on, I won’t regret that I missed out on much-needed sunshine. Where I’m situated, it’s a must with all the lengthy cold and gloomy days we otherwise experience.

My recent exhibition in “Sound and Vision” at ConArtist Collective Gallery was a whole lot of fun. I’m onto the next one in: “But Is It Art,” which opens this Wednesday, May 6th, 2015. 

I’ve added the piece I showed at Sound and Vision “Speak and Spell Re-envisioned” to my Gallery. I hope you enjoy it as much as I loved creating it.
