Sometimes I am Scared.....

sometimes I am scared...

I am scared I will not accomplish everything I want to

I am scared that I will not be able to see all the places that I want to see

I am scared that I am just spinning my wheels

I am scared that I will be invisible

I have gone through a lot in my life

I know I am worthy of all things

I am worthy of love.

I am a warrior

I am getting ready for Art on the Ave. 
Very busy and tired.

I am getting a little melancholy of late 
It will pass. It always does.

Working full time at my other job and  getting ready for the show makes me very tired.
So please forgive me for not getting to everyone at Paint Party Friday.
Go and visit all the wonderful Artist!

You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view--until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.
To Kill a Mockingbird
Atticus Finch to daughter Scout, Chapter 3.
Nelle Harper Lee

My mother handed this book to me when I was 12. It changed my life forever. It was so insightful. I was Scout.
I found out I could get lost in a book. 
That I could learn important lessons within those pages. 
I found my love for reading. 
Life changing!
I later named 
My daughter Nelly Lee

Family Photo from New Hampshire, Franklin Pierce.

That means also for ourselves.  Sometimes we forget. 
Sometimes we are so hard on ourselves.
We forget to say.....
It's OK Sweetie! Everything is OK.
We are so hard on ourselves.
Say it to yourself!
I know it sounds silly but try saying it.
It feels weird and awkward. 
But after a while it gets easier.
Soothe yourself....
We forget sometimes how to do that.
Let the love in. 
Love & forgive yourself 
I am getting better at it.

I'm doing the work.

I am sooooo a Pollyanna!

New Painting and Exhibit

I have started a new piece.  

Just the beginning stages. Will be adding lots of other elements.

Also working in my journal. 
I always have 4 things going at a time. 
I love Art!!!!! Did I ever say that?????
Don't forget to join the other people from Paint Party Friday!
Go and see all the wonderful artists.

So here are the photos I promised you from my First Exhibit!!!
It was so exciting!
I can not put into words how I felt!
It was so packed with people!!
We were not supposed to take pictures so these are some that I got after it was winding down. 
I have 3 pieces in the show. I did not get a picture of the other one but it is on the Goggleworks website!

When we walked in I was so please to see my painting right under the "Vanity Fare" sign!
What an honor!!

You can not tell by these photos but the lighting was perfect on the paintings.
Here I am with my 2 favorite people in the world.
My hubby Steve and my Wonderful Daughter Nelly.

And then we ended the night going out to eat with the most beautiful family in the world.
( I am a little bias)
I am so grateful for my family and all there love and support. 
They are my Heart.
(I don't say that lightly, Makes me cry thinking about it)

Going this weekend to Keen, New Hampshire for my Nephews Graduation!
Graduating with Honors from Franklin Pierce!
Yay Isaac!

This is Isaac after he hit his first Grand Slam!!!
I can't believe he is graduating already.
He was asked to come back next year and assistant coach for Franklin Pierce.
That means Masters paid!! WoooHooo!! Yay for my Sister Jamie!
And he is a Glass Blower too!!!

Such good stuff going on right now!
Life is good !!

I wanted to thank all of you my faithful followers for all your  support and lovely comments.
Your support means more then you will ever know!!
I have come a long way baby!!
If I can do it so can you!!

Wisdom - Leo and Exhibit Tonight!!

We seem to gain wisdom more readily through our failures than through our successes. We always think of failure as the antithesis of success, but it isn't. Success often lies just the other side of failure.

~Leo F. Buscaglia~

Leo F. Buscaglia was one of my first Love Guru's
If you ever have time go on YouTube and just listen to his lectures.
  My family would gather round the TV to watch him when I was young girl.
Dr. Love.

Tomorrow night is exciting night for me!!
I will be at the Goggleworks from 5:30 to 7:30 for the reception.
3 of my paintings will be there.
I will take lots of pictures!
Don't forget to visit!
They will be there from May 4th to June 3rd.

And don't forget to visit Nelly at Crescendoh. She is guest curator!
