Here is the quote that helped the work along:

I paint not by sight but by faith. Faith gives you sight.

~Amos Ferguson


This work took some time to tell me when she was ready to be finished. Small details is all she asked for and that’s what I gave her. The textures in the background and the green foreground are subtle, but vital to the energy of the work. Her wings are stilling themselves from her flight so are slightly blurred. Her gown brings the fiery reds and deep oranges of the “anything is possible” of an Indian Summer. She smells of fresh cut grass, sunshine on the lavender fields and the earthy dust of opportunity.

She reminds me that this is not the time to trap myself within virtue. I do not need to be caught on the treadmill of doing what is “right”, I must release my expectations of what I am learning, and allow the growth to happen. Transition isn’t supposed to feel good, or none of us would ever make it through it at all. I am what I am, I am doing what I need to be doing, and the Universe will provide the necessary synchronicities to happen as I continue my act of spiritual faith in myself and the greater power of the Original Creator, faith that I can channel that creative energy, faith that I can use it for good in my life and in every life I may touch, or know; faith in the love for every living thing. I accept what I am asking for, I will work hard, remain true to myself and look no gift horse in the mouth.

So be it.

May your day be filed with turquoise possibilities and golden opportunities.

Beautiful and your definition even more beautiful.

Risky subject: I’m one of those people who have had the fortune/misfortune of seeing ghosts or spirits. Sometimes they don’t have faces.

So, - noticing in some of your more recent paintings you leave the subject without a face. Yet in others, like ‘Putting It Together.’ it’s all about the features of the face. Can you talk about your reasons?

Faceless people are when I am talking about inner issues, feelings, ideas, mysteries. Faces indicate to me anyway, an awareness of the subject for both myself and the viewer. Faceless-ness allows people to use their own inner brain matrix (science has proven that people see with their brains, not their eyes, and when things are missing or foggy the brains matrix fills in the gaps so it makes sense, it's all about the science for me, LOL) to fill in the blanks and makes the experience one of discovery instead of a message at all.
How's that?
