As you continue to send out love, the energy returns to you in a regenerating
spiral... As love accumulates, it keeps your system in balance and harmony. Love
is the tool, and more love is the end product.
- Sara Paddison, "Hidden Power of the Heart"
One of the things I love to do is complete commissions for others! There is nothing like collaborating on a project to help someone satisfy their vision - whether it is a commemoration of a special event, an anniversary, a birthday, a new home.
These kitties are a small study for a larger painting that was commissioned as a birthday gift for her dear friend. I kept it under wraps for a long time...so as not to "blow the surprise". It makes me so happy to be a part of this...especially to watch the giver and receiver, and the joy they experience. The larger piece (in a square format), is now hanging in her home!
This winter I've been painting orchids in my studio while the snow continued to pile up outside. I did take a couple trips down to Florida to visit my mom, once for a beach trip, then to stay with her during cataract surgery.
While my 2 orchid plants are blooming, I'm getting a lot of mileage out of them! And in the middle of these, I've begun the process for another commissioned piece that I'm VERY excited about!
