White Poppies painting

Red & White Poppies (large

Silent Serendipity is an award winning painting of white poppies and white hydrangeas, and is a reflection of the first breath of spring in Flower Mound Studio. I could see this as a terrible time, with my mother in hospice, but instead I am celebrating the moments I can spend with her. I've mentioned before my good news, also, that I have given up my six figure corporate day job to become a full time artist. Today is the last Friday in the corporate world for me. My boss asked if I am feeling a huge load of stress disappear, but to my surprise, the answer is no. All I feel is excitement, happiness, and the urge to grin just a little too much.

Sometimes life is so busy and noisy, I forget there is another way of seeing. This is the beginning of a new chapter in my life, and am so thankful for the family and friends who have joined me on this journey.

751. The Scholar-Gipsy
GO, for they call you, Shepherd, from the hill;
Go, Shepherd, and untie the wattled cotes:
No longer leave thy wistful flock unfed,
Nor let thy bawling fellows rack their throats,
Nor the cropp'd grasses shoot another head. 5
But when the fields are still,
And the tired men and dogs all gone to rest,
And only the white sheep are sometimes seen
Cross and recross the strips of moon-blanch'd green;
Come Shepherd, and again begin the quest
