Tis the Season...Love the Lights


Tis the Season....I love all of the bright holiday lights. Seas of red and green, bling galore. This year I am feeling the need for some softness though, and the white lights attract me the most. My paintings are lighter and airier. A series of lightness then who knows!

Thankful that I am better off than so many...
Considering the wonders of this earth...
Wishing only for health, happiness & love...
Visiting Museums and art galleries...
Taking myself less seriously, laughing more & more...
Listening more talking less...
Opening up to new friends & cherishing those I've had for years...
Isabella, Sal, Sarah, and Jessica...
My huge family, most who are close to me here in Kansas City...
Learning, reading, new endeavors, a hot air balloon ride very soon...
