A Painting of 2 Horses Galloping

Good Things Take Time

    So, I've been working on this painting for a while now and although it's not quite finished, I wanted to show the progress I've made so far because I have a burning desire to share a revelation I recently had about multi-tasking and I found this painting to be a metaphor to capture what it is that I've come to realize.     I know that when I try to tackle something without my complete and undivided attention, the results will lack the quality that it deserves and of course, I easily become frustrated. I’ve learned over the...

I truly believe that this can be our best year yet!   With all the chaos in the world, it is important to re-connect with our Inner Self and resonate with that positive vibration within so that this powerful force can bring about change and promote healing as we raise ourselves to a higher state of being but It all starts with forgiveness.   Forgive others and most of all forgive yourself. Let go of past resentments and wish others well. I think that a lot of conflict arise out of misunderstandings. We might not always understand why certain things...
