Rachel, I'm reading the article about you...art therapy, social work and artist? Wow! Very impressive!

Just wanted to check in real quick to share a blessing. It's been a busy week so far getting ready for the tour, though there have been plenty of distractions...this being one:

Enough of the "wrong things" occurred to make it possible for a lengthy article about my work and the Tour to be put in our local paper today.

Brad, hope that the computer problems are resolved quickly. Lord know I know. We have had a line of computers failing and working for 17 years ago. I'll check out your blog today.

Yes, Raven, it's a beautiful thing! I'm so happy to see her doing well.

Wow, Eddie!  That's fantastic!! So glad you had a great time and that your daughter is doing so well!  : )

Howdy from Kentucky, everyone!  It's been a crazy-stressful week so far, and I'm going nuts from not being able to check in here more often.  I could fix my computer, but it would cost about as much as buying a new one, neither of which I can afford to do right now, anyway, so the point is moot...

But so far, I've been able to stick to my October blog-a-thon; I'm not going to let my computer troubles get in the way of what I want to do.  Tomorrow, the third piece goes up.  I haven't had much action over there yet, but it's early in the month, and I'm hoping it will grow.

Best of luck to everyone in their endeavors---I may not be around here much, but you're all still in my prayers.

Hey everyone, I'm back from my trip to VA. My daughter really makes me proud! She's fresh out of college, living on her own in a beautiful coach house. She works in a small company less than two blocks from her place and gets to walk home for lunch. She's an amazing young lady and very blessed. Hope all is well with all.

I'm on the road for the next few weeks - photographing the BOSS conference in Dallas and then off to the Gulf Coast for another conference. It's all good, but will take most of my time.  So . . . I've asked Eddie Hudson to facilitate the forum while I'm traveling. I know he will do a great job of encouraging you and keeping the conversation going. Thanks Eddie!


Have a beautiful birthday, Rachel!

Happy Birthday Rachel!!


Sorry I've been away so long everyone! Hope to be back in action soon!

Good morning everyone, good to see there's some activity. This is our space and place to lift one another up. I agree with Raven. Get support from other artists. Though it doesn't surprise me, artist don't usually get support from family. We need the community of similar types to help stir up the energy and keep this going. I'm going to join a couple local art leagues to add to my encouragement. Of course, the regular practice of your craft helps as well. Every day, if only for a few minutes a day. That's my personal sense of encouragement.

God's blessing to you, Rachel as you do your show. I'm sure since God has brought you this far, he will continue to lead you the way.
