This time tomorrow I'll be watching Joe Hedges perform at a funky bar in Kent, OH. But tonight I have a natural buzz induced by listening to my heart.
I'm not sure what happened to me tonight except that I experienced a cosmic moment of brilliance. I had a divine opportunity to step into a portal and the Universe gave me a gift for trusting myself to listen. Then I just started painting. A "Just Do It" kind of thing... I painted the picture you see above of my beautiful daughter-in-law, Ashley, in about 3 hours from start to finish. I am slacked jawed right now. Not only did I start the painting, I FINISHED it!
Below is the photograph I found my inspiration in. It is just one of about 10 of her I want to paint. Her eyes are intensely blue. Ice blue. Take your breath away blue. All I can say is thank you to my Higher Power for giving me a gift tonight.
