When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

The Surprise of Serendipity

My first solo exhibit this past January 2009 was entitled, "Serendipity." The name of my exhibit was inspired by the series of very fortunate events that seemed to magically occur once I chose the path toward resuming my art career.
So I happened upon a beautiful site called , the "SERENDIPITY FACTORY". It is uplifting, whimsical,aesthetically pleasing but most of all, contains genuinely meaningful,important, "feel good" content!
I contacted the very generous Traci McLaughlin and she posted an article about my work in her featured artists section.

The post begins....
"Creator,Jude Harzer Sees Beauty"
We recently met the lovely artist Jude Harzer and were inspired by her outlook on life. She had abandoned her art for nearly 20 years until something changed. Jude said, "After a series of very fortunate events and encounters, after years of soul searching and sadness, I rediscovered my painting and myself just three years ago!" This past January 2009, she held her first solo art exhibit in Asbury Park, NJ. It was entitled,"Serendipity." Jude says that one of her greatest gifts is her ability to see beauty in the world around her, even when it seems difficult to find."
