“My Mother said to me,
If you become a soldier you’ll be a general,
if you become a monk,
you’ll end up as the Pope.
I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.”
-Pablo Picasso

Discovery Drilling

Kyle Brown of Discovery Drilling in Anchorage, Alaska
custom built this easel for me,
so I painted him and his family.
He is a master craftsman and engineer,
and I am thankful for his generosity.

Fan Mail From jolynnhi's Channel

I opened my mail tonight and this is what I read:

"I wanted to send you a message because I am amazed on how far you have come as an individual. I was watching your uploads and I have one of your videos in my favorites "*A*What I want in Life*D*", and its awesome to see how far you have come from that time in your life, you are a great inspiration for many young women out here in this crazy world. Congratulations on your accomplishments and many more blessings. Great work, and please continue to share your gift."

Here is the video from 2 yrs ago she was talking about.

Mr. Muse

Show me how great you are.
Stand up and be counted because Im waiting for you to cross my path.
My paint brush misses my hand and my paint wants to be spread.

Picking Up The Pieces

I have a tendency to put all of my eggs in one basket.
Someone once took that basket and dropped it from several flights up.
The basket was a mess and all the eggs were broken.

But now,
the eggs are back together,
and all out on the table.

Easter is coming
and I have new paint!

Libra and Capricorn

"This pair has intensity and a mate-for-life philosophy that can overcome obvious differences. First off, Capricorn is not likely to swoon over Libra's obvious charms. The Capricorn Goat has a cavernous depth of cool that keeps Libra guessing. That is a fun challenge for the pleaser Libra.

Libra quickly realizes that being super-smart and capable will win the Goat. Libra likes the extras of romance, while Capricorn isn't likely to invest in love ephemera. But if a bond emerges, Libra can rest assured that Capricorn's gifts will be ones of lasting value. Both are marriage-minded, and while it's got built in frictions, this pair can find a harmonious balance. Capricorn tends to the structure of the relationship, while Libra adds the flourishes.

What intrigues Capricorn is Libra's social finesse, something they see as an asset for climbing the ladder. Beyond that, the Goat knows the value of a good, clear mind, and is entertained by the Libran wit. On dates, Libra brings ease to conversations, and that allows the reserved Cappy to open up.

If the Libra is female to a status-minded Capricorn male, she could become Venusian arm candy, not fully respected in her own right. Capricorn tends to say 'my way or the highway,' a sentiment abhorrent to Libra's diplomatic nature. A Libra caught too often in the lala land of indecision could be putty in the hands of the strong-willed goat. Capricorn loses respect for the people-pleaser, or a Libra that is all talk and no action. While the extremes of these signs together spell disaster, many Libra-Capricorn couples learn to respect what the other has to offer.

It's likely that the Goat wants to 'talk shop' a lot, but as a cardinal sign, Libra understands ambition. Libra just goes about it in a different way, prefering paths of least resistance. Capricorn might think Libra a layabout, but if they observe over time, they'll see just how much the latter accomplishes. At home, Capricorn can be a hoarder and packrat, while Libra prefers an airy spaciousness. Libra likes to stay above the fray, while Capricorn sinks into dark moods from time to time that are unshakable. Libra's instinct for saying the right things may help, but sometimes the Goat just needs to be alone.

With the traditional home-loving Goat, Libra comes to life, having found a loyal mate for all time. And Capricorn is drawn into the pleasures and beauty of life by entering Libra's world. Once a commitment is made, their differences round things out, and bode well for mutual fulfillment."
