"For happiness, how little suffices for happiness!... the least thing precisely, the gentlest thing, the lightest thing, a lizard's rustling, a breath, a wisk, an eye glance-little maketh up the best happiness, Be still"
Feeling much better, though still low energy. Not getting any art done yet, but hopefully soon. Thank you all for your sweet well wishes.
Have a wonderful week. xoxo
I am a painter living in the beautiful moutain town of Taos New Mexico.
I have been painting since I was eight years old when I declared to my mother that I wanted to be an artist. She promptly went out and bought me an oil set. Perhaps not the wisest choice for a child, but it got me started. I have been painting ever since and my way of working and what I paint has changed dramatically over the years. At this point in time I am working with mixed media on board and canvas. Nearly every image starts with a dream, either waking or sleeping. Other subjects that inform my work are literature and nature. Each painting is for me an adventure in color and texture,an exploration of joy and a way for me to get to know myself better. There is always a personal narrative and some hidden message that I am unaware of until it reveals itself in the finished piece. My paintings are about whatever is going on in my life at the time I am painting. My intention when I do a painting is to be true to my authentic voice and perhaps to open someone's heart and mind to all the possibilities around them.
Glad you feel a bit better. Wishing you a full recovery very soon.
so glad you're feeling better. love this quote xo
take your time getting your strength back, annie. that damn flu!

Glad you are over the worst of that nasty flu - rest up - looking forward to seeing some 'annie-art' soon.
glad you are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. hopefully this flu will make you immune for a number of years. that happened to me i think with a wretched flu i had about ten years ago, knock on wood
Hi Annie, just came by to check & see what you are up to... sorry to hear that you were so sick!!!
I had the flu last year & I was laid flat in bed for a week. Yes, thank goodness for friends! I had to have friends leave juice & soup at the door. I am glad you are now on the mend & hope you are feeling back to your old self soon! Hope to catch up soon. I went to see family in January & am now back to school/work schedule... haven't posted a blog in over a month. Maybe this week, we'll see.
i love that quote too, beautiful. take good care annie, it's looking very cold there. i hope you are back to your art soon.
Glad you are feeling better, Annie. Don't rush ....
It's more important that you recover. Art will come naturally once you do. Sending healing thoughts your way....
I love these words, Annie. They are perfect. I've been thinking about you a lot, and hoping you are feeling better and stronger every day.
Stillness is a wonderful thing, isn't it? I've been enjoying it more and more, myself.
Love and hugs,
All, You are all so wonderful and kind. Thank you for your continued
good thoughts. xoxo
