“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
Transitions and change... This was part of a painting that began as two horses sketched on a canvas... paint applied and knifed around... and this beautiful contemporary horse emerging. There were parts I loved and parts that seem weak. It stayed like this about 24 hours and I was back to play with it. This painting no longer exists. Palette Knife Modern Representational Abstract Horse Painting called Summer Winds.
👉 LIFE 😀💏 "Change"
September the month that marks the change from the summer heat here in Texas. Our temps will stay in the 90's most of this month and this week the high nineties. It was noticeably cooler this morning... but only this morning! 😎 How is it where you live?
Change is ahead. Are you ready? Changing the world, changing the painting, changing the house and always changing my mind!
We have been debating more home improvements at this home. This is our retirement house choice as we dropped from 3100 sq ft to 1900 sq ft by moving across the street almost six years ago. We have been here 5 1/2 years in this home and a total here north of Ft Worth of 9 years! RECORD for the longest area we have ever lived in. (Actually we have lived in Argyle, Justin, Roanoke, Trophy Club... years total: 19 years. We have bought, rehabbed and sold 12 homes.
We actually did the kitchen reno 4 years ago and... it needs it AGAIN! Not sure we have the dollars to do it all, but things have to be done. This is the list: (No laughing)
- The kitchen: new cabinet fronts, adding a floor to ceiling cabinet for all the appliances, new island, and flooring.
- Flooring: needed everywhere. 1900 sq ft of it.
- Tearing out the current fireplace and reframing for a new slick horizontal gas fireplace that will heat the house! No more Snowmagden like last February.
- Bathroom updates in Master and Hall bath including new cabinets, showers sinks, tubs etc.
- Taking down a wall between the den and my current studio. Taking down a portion of the wall from the entry hall to the studio. It will become a music room.
- Building a pergola on the patio outside 15 x 22 ft.
- Closing back in the back porch, which we ripped out the old inclosure in year two here
- Re-floating concrete on the front porch and side walk. Do not ask me why.
In between all of the above... we need to finish flower beds and be done with the outdoor drain on the budget. Sounds more like a January New Years list... but it is not. CHANGE is in the air every day... remember to stay flexible.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" 2 Corinthians 5:17
