Where have you been? I haven't seen you for a while. Oh, wait a minute, I haven't seen me for a while ... I mean, you haven't seen me for a while. ;-D
I missed you.
I'll tell you where I've been and what I've been doing in future posts, a little at a time. At the present time, I have a new painting to share with you. "New" in many ways. "New" because this is an abstract piece. In the past I've painted faces or still life, generally. "New" because I "see" differently and I "express" what I see differently, than before, that is, before I went missing ....
Those who recognize my style can see that I've kept the "old" of using text in my art. There are four words in this painting. Can you see them?
While I've been away, I collected a few new words, some from the dictionary such as
P l a c i d n e s s
pleasantly calm or peaceful; unruffled; tranquil; serenely quiet or undisturbed: placid waters. Not easily upset or excited. Not agitated physically.
And I created new words because the dictionary words didn't quite say what I wanted to convey, such as

I experience LoveJoy when I'm with my friends, family, husband, daughters and grandchildren. Just being with them, talking with them, sharing with them, creating with them, cleaning with them, traveling with them ... all of that is LoveJoy.
All of the silliness that goes on, and the chocolates ... those are LoveJoy too.
Tea Time is LoveJoy. Some would say "Coffee Time." I say "Tea Time" because that's my favorite drink. So many flavors, the aroma of lavender and rose tea, yummy. During Tea Time with me, you don't have to drink tea. You can drink whatever you want: coffee, juice, water, whatever. It's your choice. And that's another part of LoveJoy. You get to be you and choose whatever fits you in a space that is free and without judgment. It's a safe space just to Be. Ahhhhh ... just Be You and I'll Be Me.
It's good to be back, here, that is. I hope to see more of you.
