One of the best parts of painting is being able to share my art with others. I ran across this photo tonight and I decided to share it with you. I was in the process of wrapping up this painting, and as I do, I stop and give thanks for all the things I have learned from it and all the joy I had in creating it. I also lay my hands on it and silently share energy with it. I bestow on it all positivity, light and ask blessings on those that will encounter it. This painting was going to Saint John's University and I was also saying a prayer that it would find a joyous home there. Often when I start a painting I will lay hands on it and be still and be open to receive what will flow thru me. And I always give thanks, thanks, thanks for the opportunity to create something. Each of my paintings is like a good friend and even though they go out into the world, my mark of energy and blessings remains within them. Whenever someone is coming to get a painting, I always arrive early and spend a few quiet moments with it before they show up. It's odd I suppose, but I've done this from day one. And if I'm out and about and happen to run into one of my paintings it's so fun. And if my clients send me photographs of where they hang my paintings it's such a thrill. So much positive energy that again, it's good to be still and just say....thank you.
