You might be surprised

4 Feb

I read an interesting article today in my husband’s running magazine about influence.  You’ve heard the saying,  You become like the ten people closest to you.  This article detailed how a father’s running habit rubbed off on his 6 year old son. Running became contagious around their household and soon enough, everyone joined in.  I’m not a runner so I’m hoping I can “catch” the desire from my husband.

My passion of choice is painting and drawing. I would like to think that I passed my artistic genes to my five year old daughter. After all,  she took it upon herself to create her “artist” Halloween costume (smock,  french hat and all).  However, the last few months I’ve realized that I didn’t pass anything to her… I “caught” her passion for art. She has reminded me of that childlike joy of doing the one thing that makes you happier than anything.  She broke out my dusty watercolors for me and helped me reconnect to a missing part of my soul. Funny what a five year old can do for you.

So be careful who you choose to spend your time with, you might catch something great.

Fare la Bella Vita

1 Feb

Jennifer Moreman’s motto is “Life is Beautiful”. Or for you world travelers out there,”La Vita è Bella” or my front-runner, “Fare la Bella Vita” (have a beautiful life).

What an interesting sentiment, “Have a Beautiful Life”. It somehow transforms into a motivational charge. Most of us are too busy out there flying from one event to the next to take notice of the small things. That is what I love about Jennifer’s work, from the mystery of a wise owl’s eye to the solid security of a Texas Longhorn, she gets it.

So set your DVR for a night and go check out one of Jennifer’s upcoming showcases.

If Texas is too far of a trek, indulge in her vision online

So for this week remember that we all “Fare la Bella Vita”…
