I have accepted fear as a part of life - specifically the fear of change... I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back. Erica Jung

Heart in the Sky and I am loved

One good thing about waiting for a tow truck...looking up and seeing this. I think God is trying to tell me to take heart. All will be well and I am loved.

A new intuitive painting

Fire Meets the Sea
18" x 24" mixed media on canvas

After struggling with my last painting for a week, this painting was done much faster. Why? It’s because I had fun doing it. The last one was too controlled, too tight. It was not lose enough. This one was more intuitive and free flowing except for the parts I chose to control like the placement of the molding paste for texture and the lovely little pink circles. I have no idea what they are. They just felt right to do. After staring at the painting for a while I have decided to call it Fire Meets the Sea. I see flowing lava, sea spray, and vegetation. I actually love this one a lot.

                              Mixed Media 9 x 12
So, here are the rules. Just tell me what is your number one hope for the new year. That's all. You don't have to write an essay or anything. Just a simple sentence will do. Even just a word.  On Saturday the 10th I will number the responses 1 being the oldest response and up. Then at 12:00 noon EST I will pick a winner using a random number generator. Because I am posting this on many different sites I will ask those participating to follow the link to my blog and answer there, but I will not make it a have to. No jumping through hoops. I hate that. Nor will I ask you to Like my fan page or follow my blog. As I said I hate hoops. So, let's have some fun!
