say whaaaaaaaat wednesday???

a painting i just recently finished
(prints will be in my etsy shop
that i am in the process of getting open!!)

do you ever feel that sometimes you
are just lost?
that sometimes no matter how hard
you try you struggle to make a 
decision on which way to turn?

do you ever feel that sometimes you
are in the darkness and aren't sure
where to find the light?

that is the inspiration behind this painting
and my question for today.


it is funny how sometimes we don't even
realize how lost we are until someone
comes along and points us in a different
direction or simply gives us new perspective.

i am so grateful for the many Guides i have had at
different times in my life...Guides that i know
were brought to me at exactly the time
i needed them.

here's to all the Guides in our lives!!

  13. etsy shop :) I am so super excited to see this. So proud that you are putting it out to the world that you are going to be doing this. I adore this painting you have featured here. It is stunning! You my dear are so talented! I am smiling from ear to ear here in NJ as I watch you spread your wings. Fly dear I will be here to hold your hand if you are feeling frightened.

    This online community has been such a saving grace to me in my life. Lifting me up when I was down and letting me know that I am able to do things I never thought possible. It has opened a whole new world of support for me. I am not sure what I would be doing without it, where I would be, and who I would be. I am so lucky to have this online community.

    And you my dear Kolleen are such a ray of sunshine and support in my life. I am so grateful for Y.O.U!

  15. My guides have come in so many women this year. I mean, A LOT of women...Brave Girl, included. I love seeing these ladies living the big dreams...knowing what's important and what to leave behind. I follow in their example and find that there is so much more to this creative journey and wonderful life.
    Cannot WAIT to hug you today!!!
