Having lived and worked in Morocco, I am now working on a series of paintings in order to tell my story from my experiences using my most favorite language - art.

Petersen Art Center
When not painting, it sure is fun to tool around at the local art store. I had not heard of Utrecht art supplies and Petersen's Art Center in Salt Lake City, but now I am a big fan. It is warm and inviting with huge sales that artists just love. They also offer workshops and classes to use all the amazing supplies. I wish I could stay on and make pottery! I have found some special colors I have been wanting to get for a painting of Morocco that has 2 bright articles of clothing.
After picking up some good deals, a special brush, a large clip board for studies and sketches and a great carrying case, Janet and I head for a lovely cup of coffee and homemade cookies at a shop called "Paradise". I am enjoying our time together and our growing friendship. We are cheering each other on to make art.
I will post what I complete today, later on tonight or in the morning. I am happy painting in sunny Utah.
I enjoyed sharing about Donald Miller's writings, and how they have helped me. I shared one of his quotes today, and will add it here.
"When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are."
