Hello all, it has been awhile since I have written but as one knows
life always presents its ups and downs...
During my teen years, I felt winter was endless.
I longed for the warmth of sunlight and spring breezes, knowing my life would be filled with family
gatherings at picnics, exploring the nearby fields and parks, arts and crafts with the community children and
my fun-loving friends.
Lately, however, I have come to view the season's cold days as time to prepare for art projects.
Especially since the cold, freeze and thaw caused water damages in my studio. Precious early works
from the beginning of my art career ruined. So disheartening for an artist reflecting on their
creative journey. In the midst of the clean-up I have found a very precious memory given to me
by my parents on Christmas Day so long ago. The gift that gave inspiration from an artist from the
the 1960's for me. How many artists out there watched Jon Gnagy's television show, or received this
gift...I am sure quite a few.
Today I wish you cherished memories of whatever holds true in your heart!
"I believe that in the life of everyone there comes a time when the Art Spirit is dominant. You may
have passed it when you were 5 or 7 or 11 years of age. But it will come again several times in your
life when you are looking for something outside your practical everyday routine." Jon Gnagy
