The Glitter of the Universe

It's Just Magic

I just returned to Key West from a long and lovely vacation.  Part of that time was spent on Hilton Head Island.  Long walks on the beach are a great way to get to your "creative place", seemingly without any effort on your part.  Maybe it's the sparkle on the water, it's kinda like the glitter of the universe. Maybe it's the sound of the water, the language of the universe.  Maybe it's just magic.

It was delightful to get away and it's great to be back.  I was able to rejuvenate as I get ready for my one year anniversary of my studio and gallery,

I recently taught a one-day workshop based on my
20 Minute Painting Technique. One of the attendees was from Naples, Florida. During the workshop, which was on a Thursday, she commissioned a 30" x 40" painting and was very specific about a number of items and colors.  She wanted a colorful, tropical Key West cottage painting. And by the way, she needed it by noon on Saturday.  Since I was teaching
a 20 minute painting technique I should be able to whip it out, Right? So I put a hustle one it and I had it finished on time. When she picked it up she loved it so much she commission two more. But no sweat I had 6 days to finish those and then ship them to her over night.
