Yesterday for this artist was huge -- Alyson Stanfield of ArtBizSuccess 
released her podcast interview with me, and she did such a brilliant job.
I first met Alyson, when I was going to be on the Oprah Winfrey show
via Skype, drawing Oprah live during a show.  It was an enormously
wonderful opportunity, and of course I was nervous about drawing one
of my favourite people in the world. 

I'd been following Alyson's blog, and I called her.  She calmed me down,
and gave me excellent advice.  And she was leaving town to fly to an
seminar she was giving in an hour. She still talked to me. A few years
later when my mother died Alyson invited me to write a piece about
getting back to creativity after experiencing a serious loss. 

Alyson released that article by me again on February 7 this year, and 
that lead to our discussion about this podcast.  The podcast is all about
happiness -- something I am always eager to learn more about. 
I hope you will listen and share the podcast with your friends.  And
I hope you are living your creative life, and that you are happy. 

Check out the Don Valley Art Club Spring how at Todmorden Mills to see lots
of beautiful art. 

Have a loving your life day.

Congratulations on another art show❣️ I wonder what it is you revised on this beautiful painting?

Barbara Muir said...

Hi Evelyn,

Quite a bit, and I can't remember now. I painted it while my mother was
dying. This family was super kind to me. Looking at it again, I noticed
many things I wanted to change and did.

I'm about halfway through the podcast, and just so impressed by all you have done, your spirit of adventure, and your bravery.

Hi Susan A.,

Thanks so much. Please comment on Alyson Stanfield's comment section under the podcast if you have time. Your comment means a lot to me.
