For Tenley

August 11, 2016

I don’t get very much art done these days.  My six year old on the other hand is constantly creating…keeping him out of my stuff is a full time job.  Yesterday I decided I would create his own box of stuff he can safely use.  We will see if that works!

My childhood friend Bobbie over at Bobbie Brown Photography is the friend who encouraged me to get started and has consistently has pushed me out of my comfort zone.  Over the years of her requests giving me anxiety, biting my fingernails, thinking “I can’t do that, no way, I have no idea where to start!” (I never admitted that to her) getting started could take me a while…determined to push through my fears, I would finally put brush to paper.  The hardest part!  These days, getting started can take me a while for other reasons.   I have overcome that fear and anxiety and have discovered the magic of trying.  With anything in life, even when it feels paralyzing, when the voices in your head argue with you, Just. Try.

Maybe I will get around to posting before and after of our school room.

    Totally smiling with tears in my eyes right now! I remember picking up a piece from you once and asking “why didn’t you sign this?!” I totally wanted your signature on it, and am so happy every time I see that “J Paige” now 😊 And yes, I have thrown some things at you over the years (the wall I asked you to paint using my plate as inspiration!) and not once have I been disappointed. You literally blow me away each time. Keep keeping on girl. Your amazing!
