We are in Marble Falls Texas. We drove down yesterday to Blanco Texas to the Rain Bird Gallery that has some of my work. I picked up a few pieces from there to bring to Patina here in Marble Falls. John and Marnie Stange are UNBELIEVABLE folks. If you live in the Austin or San Antonio area, or even Waco, Temple, Dallas or is worth the drive to see this fabulous shop. I thought no gallery could top the incredible feeling of creativity, beauty and fullness of Earth Works in New York, but Patina does this.

I have a show here at Patina October 10-11th and will be returning home with many ideas on what to paint. The following weekend is The Rain Bird Gallery's Anniversary Show of the opening of the gallery. I will do a special painting for them as well.

I need to update my website because there is a show in Dallas on September 12th at the Dutch Art Gallery in North East Dallas. I hope if you live in my hometown or FT Worth, you will attend.

Yesterday as we left home I was feeling peace. I think I had wrote about how often an artist feels frustration coming on and how I have to let this go and trust. Not everything has to turn out exactly the way we dream it or plan it for the day or event to be successful. I firmly believe that God often wants us to step out and get things stirred up and when he sees us trying, he takes it off in the correct direction. So don't give up so quickly to frustration. A "bummer" situation or bad day is often a blessing in disguise.

My day was wonderful yesterday....well at least until we tried to sleep at the Marriot at Horseshoe Bay.... in incredibly noisy ice machine kept us awake and it was after midnight before they would move us. We didn't get back to sleep until after one. I will see when we check out how ethical they are as I specifically asked for a quiet room!

Trust today and let Him work. I will today and tomorrow and the next day!


“Jesus answered, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.” John 6:29
