Sample of Painting in Frame


April 27th 2023

I got this email from Charles today.

“Subject: TEASER

Hey JoyGenea,
        Here it is!!!!!!!!!!! It came yesterday.

And this image.

In that moment seeing the frame was when I really could see that the whole painting is going to leave the studio and hang on a wall and look so different not sitting next to the items that helped to create it.

I sat for a moment looking at the image and taking in the idea of it being shared with others. It was a warm and good thought.

As serendipity would have it while I am spending so much time on the website for the painting and traveling through two years’ worth of grief journey I am in the start of a TAPS class of Dare to Lead and I have taken a couple of other TAPS on-line workshops in the last couple of weeks. Why I say that is serendipity is because there are many emotions that have come up in the website building process and by having these workshops, I am around people that understand, now how to support that, and who encourage the conversation. That is the gift of having a good and healthy support system. I really have wonderful people in my life.

I can’t wait to get this website all caught up with content and then start to share it with the world.

Here’s to the wonderful people that step up in moments we need them most. Cheers,
