Son Surgery ♥ Silent Story Kickstarter

My heart is going to feel these coming months. My sweet son is having major spinal surgery on February 14 (it was bumped from last November). I will be with him in the hospital for 5 days, then home to nurture and tend to my babe for many weeks.   This changes things for my business. I will have less time to devote to my studio as I will be physically devoted to my boy more intensely♥♥♥ Here he is, above, as a sweet little rascal ♥♥ he's a teen now.   I appreciate all of the love and prayers...

Looking back, I COULD have squeezed in Silent Story, but Resistance is good at using what is already inside us ("I have so much on my plate!!") as a tool to stop us from doing what we are meant to do. And it succeeded... for a little...

A wordless journey of loss and hope

Silent Story is NEARING COMPLETION with The Seeker as the key character. Aren’t we all seeking? If we truly disconnect from media and reconnect with our inner worlds, aren’t we all trying to figure out why, where, who, what?  Learn a lot more about The Seeker (and her birth in 2007) here. Reserve YOUR copy of the upcoming Silent Story book here.     I now have 65 paintings complete (many span two pages of the book) and am working digitally at the same time to put files together and create a video for the Kickstarter Campaign, which is still coming. In the meantime,...
