#SuperBowlSunday - "Right Now, I have Everything I Need"

I painted this last year (2016) but can't remember if I blogged about it or not. When people see this painting, they often comment about the big bowl ("the super bowl"). The bowl is part of the inspiration for the title of this painting entitled "Right now, I have everything I need." The emptied bowl represents a full tummy and a moment of feeling satisfied after the effort of earning one's keep. The title is a phrase, an affirmation, I saw taped to a friend's refrigerator a number of years ago that stuck with me. I felt that this painting offered an opportunity to express that idea.

"Right now, I have everything I need"

Creative License Journal Series available now

Introducing a series of blank and lined journals to nourish your muse. There are three journals in total ready for your scribblings, musings, thoughts and more. I grew up spending a lot of time creating things, drawing and writing in my diaries, pretending I was Cher by singing into a hair brush and flipping my hair back over my shoulder. Normal stuff like that. In any event, over the years, I've pasted and stapled and stitched together books with varying degrees of success. Sometimes books I can write in, sometimes books I printed out and tried to figure out how to make a book a book (if you know what I mean) I like making things, like books. So I thought, why not create a series of journals? Makes sense to me. Here they are for your consideration. Click here or on the book covers below for more information about the series or click here to buy one right now (opens a new window).

And in case you're not interested in journaling (although I hope you are), I'm going to bling out my blog with a little Cher and go grab that hairbrush microphone...

Hello 2017

Hope the new year treats you well.

Am making some plans, mainly ones that streamline and simplify my life. Like this blog. I am working on migrating my lovely Wordpress, self-hosted CMS website and most of its content to this Blogger site you're reading now. Although it won't be as robust, it is solid and I feel the essence of the site will remain true.

I see lots of people are making space for one "sacred guiding" word to provide direction or meaning in the new year. My word? Simplicity. Going to keep things simple, or make things simple ... because sometimes it takes a lot of work to make things look simple. Starting with this blog.

So have a Happy New Year!

2017 here we go ...
