This one is almost done. This is a large rendition of a smaller painting I did last year. I am doing two for this new collector. Today I have one more painting to do and I will be 75% caught up if there is such a thing!

Yesterday I worked on this one, and on some boats, another small piece that had to be completed. Today I will be working on a BLUE TREE that will go to Sweden to live in a few weeks. Then I will be almost back on track. I painted so much this week I am out of white paint....and found out Asel Art is closed today for inventory...but hopefully Jim will get some out to me despite the closed doors.

Early this morning Mom has to be up to go for a doctor's appt with Dr Steve. Dr. Paul Stephen Worrell has been our physician for twenty years. Ever since I moved back to Texas. Terry and I knew him in elementary school and we all graduated together from Lake Highlands High School. Terry proposed to me on Steve's sailboat on Lake Ray Hubbard at sunset on a Sunday evening in April. Steve also gave me my first kiss in the fifth grade....we truly all have a woven history together. Good Friendships are hard to come by but we have found our Lake Highlands friends are still the best.

I have a mixed age group that reads this blog, but today reflecting on thoughts look back at your life as long or short as it might be. What ever has been gained in life and collected both materialistically and emotionally could you give it up? What does it all mean to you and to your life right now? ....that you must be willing to lose it all before you can have it all.

It is sort of hard to grasp, but until you can let go of everything, you cannot hold onto anything.
Attachment to stuff or things or habits is not healthy. If you would be unhappy to be without something, then you are dealing with an unhealthy reliance on it.

Grace,
Laurie
