I'm hesitant to explain what goes on in my life and mind in case you'll think I'm a little bit crazy... but then... as an artist we seem to have that as our perennial excuse do we not! It takes a little crazy to put yourself right out there for all to see in the form of artwork.
Yesterday I took a trip to Brisbane (about an hours drive, our closest city) and delivered a bunch of paintings (most of them are in my current banner actually) and I was going to take "Tree of Wisdom"... I actually drove that painting to Brisbane ... and drove it right back home again, and hung it back on the wall outside my studio, I have decided that one means so much to me that it just has to stay here. The good news is, beautiful giclee prints on canvas can be made of it. A friend of mine has a large reproduction of this painting in her office she told me it has changed the energy in there... she says it makes her and her clients feel peaceful and calm. I love knowing that.

I still have to figure out the best way forward for adding a shopping cart to my website, to allow for online shopping! This is something I'll be looking into over the coming months.
I just had to take myself off to rest this afternoon, it was all getting a bit much... and this is when I often listen to a podcast meditation by Mary & Richard Maddox to sooth my nerves and bring me back to stillness. www.meditationoasis.com I first found these via itunes... and I now have all of them on my ipod... with titles such as : "Relief from Stress and Pressure", "Stillness, Stability and Balance", "Emotional Ease" and many more, they have really really helped me.
Another of my favourite things in the world is to have a long hot bath with essential oils and epsom salts and bubbles, and a good book.
