Change is something most of us fear. Mostly I think because of the unknown that accompanies change. Painting involves so much of the unknown. One of the biggest unknowns is how people will react to what we paint. The artists biggest fear is the fear of rejection, the unknown critic. But painting offers the other side of the coin also. Knowing that what we do everyday may bring a smile to someone's face, a happy memory, or even just the opportunity to glimpse at something beautiful. In today's world that is quite a gift.

After yesterday I knew I needed change. A change in attitude to gratitude.
Thanks for all who left encouraging comments. I owe you!
