Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.

    reminds me of Northern Exposure… painting that was in one of our colaborations I love this one as well as the one you did for our collaboration and another charming piece dear Anthea xxx

  • So thrilled Rey it reminds you of Northern Exposure and Lady Painter that we did in our Second Collaboration A Tribute to Womanhood. Another beautiful journey with you through 2009 and 2010. I am very happy that you like Lady Painter and Christmas Artist. Did you notice dear Rey that the little paintings on the wall are abstract versions of 9 of the paintings I have done for my Christmas Series? :) Thank you always for your beautiful words. xxx
