Ahhh, yes... the work

THE ARTIST IS NOTHING WITHOUT THE GIFT,

BUT THE GIFT IS NOTHING WITHOUT THE WORK.

Emile Zola (1840-1902)


Well, guys, it has been a LONG time since I've posted to this blog. I've been in a painting funk for the longest time!

My very, very good friend, Jill Ankrom, sent this plaque to me quite some time ago and I've decided to place it in a prominent spot on my desk (maybe it will help get the juices flowing!). The message is quite profound, don't you agree?

Hopefully I'll be able to share new projects in the near future. I definitely want to start updating this blog regularly, and that in itself might serve as inspiration to get back into painting mode.

Wishing you all a lovely spring week...

Donna
