I appreciate so much the cheerleaders in my life, my family and friends who tell me everything I paint is wonderful, especially when it isn't. And a lot of times it isn't. I push myself hard but your belief in me keeps me going when my tank runs dry. You remind me of my successes when all I can focus on is my failures.
I am so thankful for those who have sold art for me in the past and those who still do. Your belief in me and my art amazes and humbles me. I am so proud to have my art in four galleries this year - Sozo Gallery, Atelier Gallery, Olives Gallery and Sundae Gallery. It is such a dream come true and still doesn't seem real sometimes. I appreciate your trust and confidence and faith in me. I have worked so hard and have neglected many things to get to this place and I am so honored to have the opportunity to work with you.
Most of all, I am thankful to my collectors. Whether you have bought one painting or several, big or small, even if you haven't bought but have told me how much you loved something I have done...it doesn't matter. I paint because I love to; but I love to, because it is a way to share and connect with others. You see what I see and we find a common ground on which to connect. And that is what the sweet part of life is all about. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours from the bottom of my heart!
