Painting by William Merritt Chase - hide and seekYesterday we attended a special celebration, a Bat Mitzvah and the Rabbi spoke to us about the game of "hide and seek" and how it can correlate to one's life and living with honesty. It's true that God watches our every move and we certainly cannot hide from him or ourselves. It is up to us to live our life by owning our actions and not hiding from God.

Here's a hint. Surely you know Mr. Jeremy Fisher.
Can you guess who created this work of art?
Have you ever thought of having a student as an intern? I truly believe that it is up to us to share with these seniors and to teach them what we know.

I ordered a dozen. I'd love to give her some positivity. Don't you agree she needs to sell her treats?
here in her etsy shop along with some great prints and colorful artwork. Last weekend, we planted our herb garden and I have to tell you it is rockin. One son is home from college. He finished his sophomore year and rocked it with a 4.0. We've been talking a lot about cook's ingredients since next year he will be living in a house and cooking.
Do you have a favorite herb that adds to creating a more flavorful life?

"put 'em up" painting the lion at pve design studio 2013I am so delighted to share with you a new friendship and a little "put 'em up" monday motivation.
During Storm Sandy, we met each other while juicing up our electronic devices at a dear friend's home who had power and was kind enough to share with many who scrambled to stay connected, fed and in need of a warm shower or meal. We were all feeling very vulnerable and incredibly sad for the devastation that Storm Sandy left behind and the courage to re-build and start moving ahead.
Yes, Matisse not only had a way with paint, but a way with words and indeed
"Creativity takes courage."
My new friend shared an image of a colored pencil sketch study of a lion and the desire to paint the king of the jungle on a very large canvas. I invited her to come to my studio and bring her fears. The transformation of witnessing another individual face a blank canvas head on and pick up a rag or a big brush and just "start" does take amazing courage.
