The Painting: This is one of the piece heading north for the two New York shows. I will be varnishing it this weekend. It is one of my internationally collected Pony Paint Pulls with intense colors of quinacridone orange through out the piece. Bits of Caramel (Brown Pink) blend nicely for the horses.

The Thought: My yesterday was filled with finishing up two more pieces for New York. I begin varnishing today. I am totally exhausted. My mom called yesterday thrilled over Morgan's engagement. She has known Kelly since she was a little girl. We were then both bemoaning the fact that life is so full of unexpected happenings and bumps and how some bumps are so large they either knock you off your feet or take you a totally different direction than you were anticipating. Some of those happenings are good and sometimes they are challenging.

We have very close family friends in the midst of major health issues and I believe this has stirred deep emotions for my mom. She summed up her side of the conversation with, "I am tired of all this. I believe God does not want us mired down, He wants us to live and enjoy this moment and this day."

So I have to simply leave you with her wisdom today... LIVE this day, be thankful for the small things and relish every moment.

"You then, my child, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus." 2 Timothy 2:1
