Universal themes and communion…

It has been two weeks since my website launch and I have been heartened by the wonderful feedback I have received from those who have visited my site.  I appreciate the kind words and thoughts of those who have taken the time to share them with me.  

I was particularly touched by a woman who had read one of my “stories behind the paintings” and who had been moved to write to me and share a similar experience she had had to the one that I had experienced relating to “Orphan Rock”.  While hers wasn’t about a painting experience, what it showed me is when something is shared of a deep experience and when our vulnerability is opened, that universal themes are touched on and others find the courage to share their touching stories.  I see this as the real union in communion and the essence of communicating.  I am most grateful to the woman for the sharing of her story and do feel richer for the sharing.

Only one week until our exhibition and I have been busy with last minute preparations.  All very exciting.   This time remembering to photograph my work, as I realise now that over the past I have let pieces go without photographing them.  I like to be able to keep a record of my work and see how it has developed over time, including the subject matter, my style, the colours and what I have been drawn to. 

And, much to my joy, I have also been painting.
