i wish i could be every person in me.......

a shy but boisterous person, sometimes, welcoming the world with great glee and gladness......
i am still a child
something.......i always find it when it's beautiful spirit flutters around my heart and tells me i am home.
a butterfly,
a snowdrop
a trail that is traveled with quiet joy
i remember so much from the world before this.......
so much beauty
so many things to smile about, so much time.....
if i could be everyone that is within me, each person who waits to be heard,
perhaps i could do something very special in the world
perhaps i could help people
cherish things
open hearts to see the beauty.
i wish i could be.......
every person who i love and admire
every beautiful thing in this world......

have been very busy!!

i can't believe how much artwork i have been able to do in the past 7 months since we have had our studio/gallery. it has been such a gift to have this incredible space to work in. every day i have had that to look forward to, to go to our studio, our special place where we can feel the spirit of our paintings and our treehouses, our little fairy furniture and characters and all the beautiful things we have made. i feel so blessed and grateful to be an artist, to be able to create and share the gifts that God has given me with others. i have felt so inspired lately.....and have made so many things. i am very happy with my creativity right now. i am breaking into new styles and ideas, finding new motivation and abilities and faith in myself. it is truely wonderful. mike, too, has been incredibly creative and energetic in his art. we both have been so blessed by our studio.
but sadly, we are not sure if we can keep our space. we have been doing the farmer's market all summer and that has enabled us to pay for our studio, but now, with only two weeks left, we are uncertain if we will be able to maintain the rent on our studio. i have tried to find someone who would like to share it with us, one or two artists, who would be thrilled to have a space to work on their art or crafts, but to no avail. if anyone knows of someone who is looking for a wonderful place to work on their art, please let me know. our studio/gallery is in downtown Salt Lake City in a wonderful area. i can give them more details if they (or you) contact me. i am desperate to find some other artists to share our studio with, so we can keep it. i can't bring myself to even think about moving everything out of leave and to close the door, not able to go back. it has been a haven and a wondrous gift for us. please contact us if you need a place to work on your art!!! it changes your life as an artist!!
i hope you like my new paintings and creations. i cherish them and appreciate how much joy they bring me!!
have a wonderful weekend. it is getting cold here, but i am finally getting used to it.
