I learned this morning that this piece of textile art, donated to the SAQA Benefit Auction, sold at the Quilt Festival Houston! I am thankful it has found a home to love it.

I am thankful for all of my readers who provide me with motivation to keep writing and sharing. I am grateful for all of the inspiration I receive from all of you!

“OUR REAL JOURNEY IN LIFE IS INTERIOR: IT IS A MATTER OF GROWTH, DEEPENING, AND OF AN EVER GREATER SURRENDER TO THE CREATIVE ACTION OF LOVE AND GRACE IN OUR HEARTS.”                             Thomas Merton

I am thankful for every day that I wake up in this world that we share, especially because you’re in it with me – every single one of you!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.
