"Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second.  Give your dreams all you've got and you'll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you." - William James

What a wonderful week here in the studio!  I got a little painting time in, had some fabulous collectors stop in to buy some new work, created a very special flower arrangement for a very special friend of a very special collector and friend of mine, walked/ran the Bellin Run (first adventure for me and so fun!) and so much more!   Now, this windy Sunday I am 'working', yes working on book work, portfolio's and just trying to get my studio organized.  As my good friend and very 'wise' business woman, Connie, would say...we're living the dream! - HA!
I think a pre-requisite in 'life' - that big darn book of life - should contain a phrase that .... everyone should own their own small business first....then I am sure to say that they would really appreciate how lucky they are when they do work for someone else!  Not complaining - I LOVE what I do - but it is overwhelming at times and I struggle with balancing it all...needless to say when I get done here I NEED to head to my yoga mat - for sure!
So....what I am getting at here is...support all those small businesses and independent artists, all those locally owned restaurants and the list goes on - and - on...we all work so hard but obviously LOVE what we do!  Enjoy your Sunday everyone!
"Forest Floor" is a new painting that will be traveling with me to Madeline Island for my show opening at Bell Street Gallery this weekend!  I am looking forward to some Island R & R!!!!
