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.
Jane Harrison

"To imagine is everything, to know is nothing at all." ~A. France

This is an ongoing challenge: to clear my mind and clear my studio. That means I must complete paintings and projects in order to move forward. There are about 20 works in process.That is actually typical of how I work but I really don't want to dismiss these concepts. For me,they need time and care to evolve into worthwhile images. I haven't been giving enough time or care to much lately. Tonight I worked on these two recent paintings on wood panels.I enjoyed every moment.
