Light up the Whole Sky

Beneath an Orange Sky
30" x 40", Oil and Mixed Media on Canvas

The sun never says to the earth,
‘You owe me.’
Look what happens with
a love like that.
It lights up the whole sky.

This painting was inspired by one of my favorite quotes. When we allow our hearts to shine with love is when we are fully alive. I hope on today, of all days, you can enjoy love in all of its forms. Wishing you a beautiful Valentine's Day that lights up the whole sky.

The paint is literally still drying on this one, but it will be on display at my show at Uptown's Dear Clark that opens this Thursday. Hope my Dallas friends can make it out.


  1. Hi there - I think we have a couple of mutual friends - Ashley & Michelle. I just found your blog and love it. I'm sharing today's post with my group class I teaching this spring (Living the Creative Life) - I'm a creativity coach and today we were using quotes as inspiration so the serendipity is very cool! Also know Linda B - and glad to see her work on your blog. All the best - Jill

  2. Jill, thanks so much for dropping a line! I follow you on FB and your creativity workshops look so inspiring. I hope to make it one soon. Thank you for sharing this with your group. Quotes are my jam. ;) Why try to re-invent the wheel? when something has been so eloquently put, as an Artist I like to re-interpret that eloquence on the canvas.
