"What is important is that you believe." - from the audio book A LOTUS GROWS IN THE MUD by Goldie Hawn

And when I think of the word 'believe' it means many things to me and probably many different things to each and every one of us.
 BELIEVE...IN..
yourself,
faith,
the work you do,
 the people you surround yourself with,
your artwork,
your journey,
your path,
changes,
your choices,
solitude,
growth,
your children,
your yoga practice,
good karma,
your goals,
kindness...
(WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS YOU 'BELIEVE IN'?)

This world is a challenging place, and no one is free of suffering, however I truly believe that little acts of kindness pave the path for a brighter world. 
I've been finally getting some serious studio time in (now that my new gallery Cappaert Contemporary Gallery, in Door County) is closed for the season until May.  With that new feel of studio time, comes much thought, reflection, and of course painting time.  I know all summer as I longed to get uninterrupted days in the studio, I found myself journaling and internally contemplating my artwork.  Possible subtle shifts to more abstract, less landscape were 'brewing' inside of me...no major shifts, just subtle more gestural and more experimental.  I will continue to work in the peaceful studio and enjoy the quiet of winter.  Cheers to 2016!

Here are just a few of the new works I've been enjoying in my studio:
 Challenges, 30x30"
"Silent Poetry"  24x30"
"Lakeside Morning" 24x24"
all oil/mixed media on wood panel
