FLOWER QUOTE: LIFE IS ART

January 28, 2019

Life Is Art

Gratitude Makes Sense

MY TWO CENTS Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow… As you may have read in my blooming blog, my one word to guide me through 2019 is gratitude.

Nature’s beauty is always there for us to see – we just have to stop and take the time to look and to be inspired by...

November 05, 2018

I Found I Could Say Things With Color

MY TWO CENTS I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for… I often feel that way with my photography.

In general, art is a ...
