  1. Linda this is my first experience on your blog and I love how the words, the colours and imagery are an enriching experience for the senses! This definitely seems a blog/site to stimulate creative aspects in ourselves. Very nice :)

  2. The first thing that came to mind when looking at the artwork: Reflection. For me as a creative in business, setting aside time for reflection keeps the creative juices flowing. This precious morning time is for meditating, getting centered and focused, prioritizing activities for the day that will move me closer to my goals in life and business. Being in a state of flow and allowing creativity all begins with reflection.

  3. I really like this painting. Since I'm truly not knowledgeable I never now why I like or dislike a painting; but I like the feel of this. It makes me think he's dressed fancy, looking onto the world before leaving his plus hotel for dinner.

    Thanks for adding the info about Stanley being President Obama's Mother's Name. Nice!
