Peace on Earth


















A painting that I had started weeks ago (and mentioned in an earlier post) has come to fruition, entitled "Solace".

May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace,The gladness of Christmas give you hope,The warmth of Christmas grant you love.

Happy Holidays!

Quote for the day

"Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but rising every time we fall"
~Confucius

I've always liked this quote. The idea of persevering - brushing yourself off, and standing right back up.

Last week I went away to rejuvenate. For me going out of the country always brings immediate perspective. You realize how easy it is to get lost and busy in your own bubble. It's good to be back, and though its quite cold here in the Atlanta area this week (zero degrees!), the studio is rockin' with some new latin music and my brushes are happily dipping back into the paint.
