Looking Up


Trees have always been an important part of my life…
I know this sounds funny, right!
However, they truly have been embedded in my heart since childhood!
As a child, I would play in the woods all the time!
We had a creek that we would trudge in with muck boots,
we’d look under rocks for salamanders …
it was our enchanted playground!
When my heart was troubled,
I would venture out into what I considered my own personal living room. 
It was a clearing where a tree had fallen down.
The tree became my “couch”. 
I would lay on it looking up through the trees to the sky.
 It was here I would come to know God.
I spoke with Him often in my living room…
It was years later, when I was away on a retreat. I found my heart troubled.
So, I ventured off by myself and found myself in a patch of woods.
A tree had fallen down, so I had a seat.
I looked up, and there was His face.
It was then that I realized the message God was sending me;
No matter where you are,
no matter where you go,
There He is… just waiting for you to open your eyes and see His face!

This past friday I had an Opening Exhibit at
Voila Gallery.
The night was magical!
I just wanted to share this picture with you...
These women are the sisters of my heart and soul...
gifts from God!
Thank you my friends for always being there
 to support me and my art!
