Finishing what we begin

One of the most wonderful feelings has to be that of 'completion', finishing something that we begin.

Today I finished a triptic that I began this fall entitled "In my mother's Garden". The truth is it often felt like this piece was doing something to me far more than I was painting it. A 'memory picture' it was inspired by a photograph I took outside my parent's kitchen window the last time I saw my Mom. It was early spring, and that day the first fern broke through the still crusty earth.

In My Mother's Garden, oil on canvas, 03 January 2016                                                                     

Hanging in my dining room, this piece serves as a reminder that as we open and unfurl to reach for the light we experience growth. It reminds me that what I grow in my life generates the seeds that will grow into our Future.

What's growing in your life? Are you ready to harvest the potential?
