I know to many people, today is a dark day.
Thanks to a stunning US election, it is a disturbing moment in history. It is hard not to feel pessimistic and deeply frightened by what is to come. I am overwhelmingly saddened by people's hate and anger and ignorance! I think in these times, when the loud-mouthed bullies seem to win, we need to come together and stand strong.
I really do know first hand, that in the end, the bullies never win. Being bullied from the age of 4, I know whereof I speak! It was rough for me for many years, and truthfully it leaves a lasting scar on your heart and your ego. HOWEVER it also makes you stronger and more self sufficient and gives you a greater understanding of yourself.
Here is what I also am sure of. Going forward will require us ALL to have more love, patience and kindness - even with those people who seem least deserving of it.
One thing helps me face the dark days:
It is what I have built my career on....so with that in mind, I want to show you some work that I am in the midst of painting....
Here is the sales pitch....you must come out and see this new work at The One Of a Kind Show at the Direct Energy Centre, Toronto, ON., November 24-December 4, 2016 (BOOTH #G03)
-- BTW I WILL NOT be showing the brand new art at my studio open house - which I will tell you all about in a couple days....
If you follow me on Instagram, you will see the new work FIRST!
Go check it out.
Lastly, I want to say that in days like this, it is really easy to be overcome by hate and anger. However, I think that if we can find our own personal strength, we can learn to be gentle and kind with each other and ourselves!
So....let's just do that. Okay??
