Evolving


I've always been a strong believer in learning and growing My art reflects that I think... I'm always looking for whats coming next and never happy with what I'm doing at the moment.

Things in my life have changed I am calmer , more reflective , more able to enjoy whats happening at the moment.
My alopeicia has progressed and I have taken control of the situation .
I've shaved what was left of my hair. This was difficult at first and sometimes still is. But for the most part I am happy.
Happy in knowing that we can't control events that will come ,only the way we react to them.

I was just checking for the progression of the gigantic commission. With regard to your hair, it is a gutsy move, but it works perfectly for you...I am preparing for my first exhibition and funnily enough I am a little nervous despite the fact that I made a career of organizing events. I look forward to your future art.

You look more beautiful than ever. Anyone can have hair! But you "rock" the look.
Best wishes

Amber,

It is held at a cultural center in Montreal (http://www.panoramio.com/photo/2033012). The main theme is 'les regards de femmes' but I have a mish mash of exploratory works (32 paintings in all). Bear in mind I am just a rookie...

My dear friend i think that this hair thing has empowered you in so many ways. As i've told you already you are the one person that i know that can handle this situation and be graceful with it !
You are beautiful, regardless...
Love Marie

Amber, Sorry to hear you are going through this ! I think counting your blessings is a good thing, as you have so many and it helps to get through those bad things, that come our way.And they always do in some form or another.

I love the painting in the posting below. Your striped, colorful sweater is so cute ! :) xoxo. Take good care Amber !

Being without hair gives us the the opportunity to see just what a powerful beauty you have.
