Wishing you a thankful heart this weekend. And if life is hard, and thankfulness feels hard to reach for, wishing you peace.

Here's some music by the Piano Guys, in collaboration with Peter and Evynne Hollens. It's one of my favourite songs of all times. Enjoy!

Oh My!

AfterTT-250Oh my, it's been busy! I am not being as good as usual about getting new blog posts up. So - I'm going to go back to planning on a Tuesday and Thursday blog for most weeks, for those of you who like to check in here regularly. Meanwhile, here's a link to an interesting article called "10 Creative Rituals You Should Steal." It's an article directed at writers, but you can replace the word 'write' with 'paint' and it still makes sense. I kind of doubt that more than a couple would be valuable to any one individual. However, the list is unusual and definitely worth a read. If you only pick up one or two tips to apply to your life, it will have been well worthwhile. Thanks 99U !

Cottage Art Retreat

Here are the happy painters from the recent Cottage Art Retreat. It was simply wonderful. Picture perfect weather meant we could paint in the yard under the trees. Wonderful meals provided by the fabulous Chrissy of "Chrissy B's Cakes & Catering". I think you will agree that some terrific painting happened...
