(The photo is from my phone. I will take a proper
"photograph" tomorrow.)Hi dear friends, it's been awhile I know. Here
is one of the paintings I've been working on
for quite some time. The subject is the wonderful
Lilou Mace who gave me permission to paint
her as part of my ocean series -- Wonder Water
Lilou Mace is determined to make the world
a better place by conducting television interviews
with people around the world working on
helping people live positive lives through
the power of the mind, the body, the spirit, and
through dynamic connections between positive
people who she calls "co-creators" around
She has done more than 2,000 video interviews.
I will tell you more tomorrow. For tonight I
know I can rest easy because my portrait of
Lilou is if not completely finished "as near
as makes no never mind," as my mother used to
I became a big fan of Lilou's when I started
meditating and loved her meditation that
allowed the listener to meet a guide. She has
a beautiful voice and everytime I listened to
this meditation I got not one guide, but usually
a group of guides. You can read about one of those
experiences based on her meditation on my blog.
I was not listening to Lilou in this story, but
followed a memory of her voice in my head and
it was a great meditation.
I may say more about this painting tomorrow.
I am more than delighted that it is (almost) complete.
Thank you Lilou, and thank you Mariette
Chatain who works with Lilou, for all of
your wonderful help with this project.
