I found a photo of a painting that shows my
kitchen at exactly this time of year. My
model was wonderful, and I regret that I never
got an excellent picture of the painting.
It was painted as an expression of total
joy at a time in my life that was anything but
easy. Family illnesses and hardships filled our
lives with worry, but I was determined to
see the good things. And of course there are
always reasons to be joyous, even in the
hard times. The painting sold before I was
even certain it was finished, and taught me
to photograph my work before it heads out the
I have to go to bed tonight because I teach
so early. So have a great day tomorrow.
Have a loving-your-work day.
