Waiting To Be Known


sweet love

deep love

everyday love

passionate love

forever love

our love

This past week we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. I made this little painting for my husband who is an inventor, an explorer, passionate about his work, fierce protector of his family, my biggest fan and all around great guy. I was inspired by this quote from one of my favorite BIG thinkers, Carl Sagan:

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." 

It seems like a wonderful guiding principle for anyone's life and our 20 year partnership. 

Happy Anniversary, my love. I can't wait to see what the next 20 years will bring.

    This is my first trip to your blog; I cam eover from Stepahanie’s, since I’m too far away to attend the Longmont Tour in person. I am so fascinated by your journal pages. Although I indulge in many art forms, I find that visual journalng is where I’m most comfortable and free. Your pages are so rich and inspiring. Happy, happy anniversary!

    I guess, yes, I came via Stephanie and by the way I LOVE your studio and artwork!

    You know how you just “KNOW”, when you are in a place where there is love and joy?… that’s exactly how I feel when I am in your kitchen.
