Thanksgiving and Thankfulness
A beautiful sunny morning in Victoria and the Victoria Marathon is going on outside my home, so
thrilling to see all those vital runners going by. It reminds me of how thrilled I feel when I start a new painting and the excitement of choosing the size of the canvas and then the colours and then allowing the painting to flow through.
I have had a few revelations this past year about the practice of painting. I feel so lucky to be able
to do what I love and to share it with others. I am in the process of painting pieces for a show in Ecuador that I am having trouble titling. I wake up in the middle of the night and have a great title but by morning that inspiration has disappeared. Hopefully this week something will gel but really I still have
a few months to come up with the right one.
Today I am going to the country to do research for tomorrow when I will begin again to
create physically. Today I am spiritually communing with nature, she is my muse. Have
a lovely Thanksgiving weekend and may it be filled with love.
