10″x8″ oil on linen panel. Peru

The above painting is of the trail to Machu Pichu, it was a very steep and rocky section.  The trail was long, and filled with beautiful things to experience along the way.  Sometimes the hike was straight uphill for miles, but those sections were always followed by a downhill. 

My daughters and I are reading “The Pahntom Toll Booth” together. I love the way the book portrays time and our sense of time passing. ” Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.” -Bill Gates

Sometimes we get so caught up in today, we forget to vision, when you are walking on tired legs, sometimes it is hard to see past the mile long hill in front of you.

If a journey is well defined and the goal is clear, even if your steps are small, so much can be accomplished one step at a time.

Late fall blooms are full of deep rich colors.  

Here is my painting half way done.  It has been fun experimenting with a different medium.
