ann commented on blog before this one. Very gratified to learn she took encouragement from my discussion of complaint vs. constructive criticism. Today’s image shows figure and rider headed out toward the realm of happiness and self fullfillment. The duo and ann are fueled by bidding the emotion of gratitude to make its presence known, right there in the heart and mind. Gratitude for life, for challenges that cause us growth, for friends, opportunities, peace in the land, health. Soon i’ll be grateful for maria wulf’s blog for inspiring me to show work in various stages of development. before and after color will be my first process-showing blogs. viva creativity.
