It says, in three languages:

see the invisible

feel the intangible

achieve the impossible

The calendar is ready to be ordered…you can order it here.

It was such an honor to be included as a positive message…

This is movement toward the edge of what’s possible for me…for I have struggled with my small fine art pieces for some time now. That inner struggle all artists face when you are unsure about the worth of your art. And I am not just speaking of monetary worth, but the intrinsic worth as a piece of art history.

I was a muralist and a graphic designer for most of my 35-year professional career… dealing with very large paintbrushes and/or a computer mouse and stylus. Picking up a tiny fine art brush is way, way out of my comfort zone and intimidates me still. I had a large visual voice and I was paid well for using it….validation!

So putting my small artwork forth into the world is a giant leap of faith for me. Again working through blessed discomfort. Being accepted, and now published, is validation that I am coming into my own as a fine artist. There is much room for growth, but I am moving toward my new visual voice….and so enjoying the journey.
