" We are a funny, strange, wondering, group groping around in a landscape of sand or countryside of packed in thistles thinking we’ve got it all defined. We sit in our comfortable places from tents and huts to mansions and houses spouting off definitions that someone with limited knowledge and truly no understanding has laid down as absolute fact. What’s worse is we swallow it hook line and sinker.

So often we take a position that life really cares about us and that we mean something to someone who really doesn’t care for us at all. Or we’ve been influenced to the point we decide to wear what seems to be opaque glasses with tiny pin holes allowing us only to see in a very limited way. It’s all our way.

For a brief moment take some time and look at some paintings. Look at some pictures. Look at the world around you. Look at the clouds passing over your head. Feel the rain drops on your face. Try to figure out how your hand works, your legs move and your eyes blink.

Why is it that we conjure up some idea that perfect axioms, saying things over and over, dancing a certain way, putting our hands up and waving, doing strange things to our bodies and all kinds of other things will give us the answers we’re looking for.

When you’ve built your own answers and dug your heels in because you just had to do it. Or, you talk out of both sides of your mouth doing one thing and disapproving of someone else doing similar things. Don’t expect approval. Don’t expect the road you travel, or the finish line to be what you conjured up. The jury is still out! In fact the true Judge is waiting.

It’s not about you and it’s not about “feeling good”. When you are outside the box sometimes the water gets deep.

Take some time, look at beautiful, meaningful paintings and ponder where you are; where you’re going; and “who” is really in control. It’s not too late!

We’ll talk more soon……"

“I gave away everything, thinking it would come back
Not seeing what was going; how it would be out of wack
Not a hint to be sold out for other things and wants
Couldn’t be that people and places added to the flaunt
The world turns and twists the truth and mocks the right
And the foundation set down is covered by the night!”

“Paintings are seen as true expressions of the human heart! Take them in, ponder their meaning and compare them to the real truth. Have a week to remember!”

"Find my paintings, or may my paint-tings find you!"
