I call it my anniversary painting. I recently bought two of your original paintings! While I don’t have a lot of money, I was determined to do whatever it took to purchase your paintings. I just received the confirmation that they were sent and for a moment… I was happy.
Know, in my sad gray world, your paintings bring beauty.
Thank you for that moment of happiness,
in the very instant that i finished reading sarah's email, i realized something hugely important (in between tears): i create art to heal the pieces of me that need nurturing. and in turn, my healing experience (the actual art) becomes a portal for someone else's healing experience. and it goes on and on like a circle of healing...from one person to the next.
it was an aha moment i had to share because this is what we're all doing out there in the world with our gifts and our art and our words and our beings. we are nurturing and healing ourselves with our various work/craft/being which then goes forward out into the world to become a part of someone else's healing experience. i can't think of a better way to live...we are indeed all connected inside this deeply meaningful circle of of giving and receiving. it gives me chills.
