meant to be

A week ago I was working and had a really good day as if I was channeling some kind of energy I couldn't control, but that flowed out of me.  Maybe that sounds a little out there, but it's the way my day went.    I was feeling a deep melancholy...which brought out a sensitvity to the universe that I was able to discover and paint.  This image in particular I felt a close personal connection towards.... but it was also bigger than me.   I took it with me last weekend to North Carolina, because I loved it...  It is an image of love, but more than that, of gently letting something rest upon oneself and holding it, but with openness.  A friend came by and wanted to get a gift for her friend whose son had just died, unexpectedly, and tragically, a new husband, and father.  It was beyond sad.  She found this to give to him.  Sometimes my work ends up where it needs to be, as if the piece has a need as great as the need of the one who is giving it.
