Thank you for your kindness in the last post on rebuilding.

I believe I wrote my book Daring Adventures In Paint as medicine for my future self. To remember my words as my life as I knew it crumpled around me. As I separated from my husband of 10 years and moved to a new apartment on the other side of the Bay, by myself and for myself; to remember that this was all a daring adventure.

Every day we get to decide how we’re going to show up for the challenges we’re faced with. This perspective of choice builds resilience and courage, and is a core aspect that we practice and strengthen with creativity. And in particular: painting is my teacher. Through painting, we are allowed to practice stretching our boldness by what colors and strokes we choose to put on the canvas. We get to decide to paint it all over again and heal it and start again. Giant metaphors for life, growth and renewal.
