Let there be light!

At last, clarity has come to me in the studio.

Really...I can actually see what I am working on thanks to newly installed lights.

I had previously operated under a makeshift trio of propped up lighting that was woefully inadequate and at various times threatened to electrocute me as I would move something and one light or another would threaten to tip into the wash water. The jury-rigged lighting failed to illuminate much except a part that measured a small square. I would turn paintings so that the area I was working on fell into the magic square of illumination.

Thanks to my wonderful husband, I can now see clearly. In fact, I think airplanes can track Spokane Valley from the light spilling out of my window.

As if that isn't enough of a blessing, I now have gorgeous, totally unique business cards created by Katie Blair Designs.

The designer is my talented and very supportive daughter. These cards are actually printed on watercolor paper featuring several of my paintings. The other side has my signature and all the important contact information.

Aren't they incredible?

These generous acts by two of the most supportive people in my life have truly spread light into my life. And they are not alone. Several people have done so much for me and I am thankful for each and every one of them. If I don't say "thank you" enough, please know how grateful I am. I hope that my actions do the same for others.

Let's all go spread a little more light.


  1. The cards are a wonderful way for people to see your beautiful creations.You and Kate (and Norm) make a great team.
