painting again, YES

I'm not sure if the painting I finished this last week was the beginning of something new, but whatever is the cause for getting the brushes back into my hand, I am eternally grateful. I have been so happy these last few days with new ideas flowing like water. What was once lost has now been found: the desire to paint.

Isis was inspired by an email that I received from my girlfriend. She is a published poet and was sending out an invitation to her reading at the Hotel Lenado in Aspen this coming Sunday. We have done some collaboration work together but it has been a long time since we've done one. After reading her email I went into my archives and found Isis, one of her poems.

Swimming through the nectar
Of a tawny afternoon,
Her black dress falls away.
And the sun drapes her flesh
In the skin of the gods;
Coating her body in that golden light
And the heat at the end of the day –
As she steps toward him.

-Suzanne Bronson

I went to church today and as always I come home happy, full of love, and refreshed.Inspired comes from what God has given me, a life. I have always been in love with His creation and grateful to enjoy each day we have.
