This is my 2nd addition to my series of chair portraits. I call her " Olivia" . I am working on two more and hope to have two additional " rooms with a view " canvas pieces very soon.

On another note , I was thinking today about the kind of person I want to be . You often hear new parents say " I want to be this kind of parent" or " If this happened I would react like this ". We are the type of person we are without thinking ....... when we react it comes from the center of our soul ..... at times there is no time to think about what we do or say..... we act. This heavy thinking is brought on by a " family crisis " I am whirling in with one of my siblings. My mother would usually have taken care of matters , but she passed away 2 years ago ........ . It is hard to be the person you " say " you are when you are in the middle of Chaos. You just are and at the end of the day , that is what you must be able to live with. It has occurred to me that the actions must change for the words to be true....... never lose hope .We must be willing to work hard on soul searching .......... and I am off on my journey.

Talk to you soon, Courtney
