I am Painting

I am painting is a statement I take for granted as I am a painter. Not taking anything for granted any more. Last year had breast cancer and it changed my world. The first thought that went through my head was “how am I living my life today?” Suddenly, today was yesterday and tomorrow all rolled into one. Today, I am cancer free.

I was beginning to write a “coffee table” book with painting pictures and their stories. Only, words burst onto paper much like my paint exploding onto the canvas.

I painted yesterday for the first time in a very long time. Not only is this a new painting, I am in a new location in the hills of Los Gatos, California. And, I am painting again today, covered in paint as I take a moment to “fill the pages,” as they say in The Artist Way.

I begin a sentence again with I…am sharing myself with you and take from my painting what you will.

All the best, cause all the best is what I’ve got.
