What matters most?

Concept and Creation 3'x4' by Tracy Verdugo acrylic and mixed media on canvas


Happy weekend beautiful people!

Will keep it short and sweet today as I've yet to get out to my studio and I really want to even if its just for a little tidy up!
On Friday night I had my exhibition launch at the oh so delish Cupitts Winery....wonderful friends and family joined me as well as locals wanting to sneak a peek at my works and it truly was a gorgeous evening.




....just one thing missing.....

not a sale
zilch
zip
zero

To be honest I woke up on Saturday feeling a wee bit despondent..you know its so much more fun when the red dots start appearing everywhere and usually that is what happens.....

I waited till now to blog cos' I really had to digest how I was feeling..
equating my self worth or validity with the sale of a painting?
How dumb is that??

So I did some rethinking...

Art is about growing, evolving, becoming...

My work is undergoing big changes and sometimes it takes a while for others to c…

What is possible?

I've been thinking a lot about this lately.

What is possible?

Is EVERYTHING within the realms of possibility?



I watched this beautiful video with Marco and the girls last night. Marco's new passion is kite surfing and he LOVES feeling at one with the wind! These guys take it to a whole new level and just left us all speechless....I feel like they are truly dancing on the edge of possibility but also in some way opening the boundaries just that little bit wider for all of us......

I'm really interested to hear back from you all because I know that for me I have spent a lifetime

watching
observing
taking things in

and feeling a certain shift inside me when something that I thought was out of my reach suddenly comes into my vision of what is possible .......
simply because I have seen it done by someone else or felt the feeling for a brief moment of what it would be like to be doing whatever …

Blogtoberfest Day 7 :)

Hi gorgeous friends.....just a quick one this evening as I'm a little weary. Had a lovely day painting in the street outside a gallery that shows my work...chatted with lots of friendly people and then decided on the way home to stop and have lunch with a magnificent Fig tree that I have driven past hundreds of times but never stopped to connect with.

I'm so glad I did ♥


Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.
~Kahlil Gibran


I hear the wind among the trees
Playing the celestial symphonies;
I see the branches downward bent,
Like keys of some great instrument.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver. ~Martin Luther


Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven. ~Rabindranath Tagore, Fireflies, 1928

Good night...sleep tight....see you …
