Thank God For Our Freedoms

I was so glad to hear about the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobbie Lobby and the Green Family.  On this Fourth of July, we must continue to pray for those who have gone before us in the many battles our country has fought, for their courage and their commitment to keep this country free.  Freedom is not just being able to do what you want when you want.  With it comes a responsibility to keep God’s moral laws and be protectors of the earth and its peoples, no matter how small.   And above all freedom is being able to worship our great God.

Nothing like -15° Below!

Keeping warm, keeping the pipes from freezing and keeping the sidewalks shoveled, nothing like -15°below zero.  I haven’t been in this kind of weather since I was a little girl in Alaska.  We knew how to bundle up and gave no thought to walking to school in the cold.  No closing schools for that kind of weather up there!  Of course, lately it has been much warmer in Alaska than in the “Lower 48”.  Still it is good to be in a warm studio, working on artwork and re-organizing.  When one is a “captive audience” because of the weather it makes you see what needs to be done in the studio.  Stay warm and create art!

Here Comes the Big Snow!

…Or so they say again.  As you know this time of year is when I like to clean and re-organized my art studio.  It is the perfect time:  the holiday rush is over, the commissions have slowed down and if you are up north, you are possibly snowed in.    This way you will be ready to go when Spring finally gets here.
