A Heart Touched

A Heart Touched ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

A heart touched
By a loving paw and a wet nose
Is a heart
Forever full.

Who I Am – Why I’m Here – Part 1.

July 7, 2015

Last used July 7/15

I’m an artist. Have been all my life. Loving the drawing, painting of nature and feeling a connection to animal life.
People, not so much. People have issues. I have issues.

And that brings me to why I’m here.

At the urging of an acquaintance, I opened my blog. She was my first ‘Follower’ — just to encourage me to get out of my comfort zone and feel I was writing to someone, not just out to empty space. I thank her so much for her support then.

I believed a blog was a good place to show my art, my photos. Drive new customers to my website. But what made my blog any different from any other artist’s blog? What would make it unique? Me?

That was where I was stagnated. For months it sat there. Not a new post, not a new word.

No Worries, Things Will Be

No worries, things will be
Take a deep breath and leave it to destiny.

No worries, things will be
You’ll see.

Painful Aspects

Willow ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Painful aspects
Will not be something
I think of when
I relive my history, my art.

Onward, forward
Must be the march
No hesitation
No “What if my heart?”

Will be positive and pleased with all
Remembering the world
Gives you what you dare to dream
Dare to start.

We Can Succeed

We can succeed in this life we need
Accessing those things we hold so dear.

We can succeed whether the sky is fair
Or filled with heartache, anger and despair.

We can see our way in this life we need
For we believe we can and will succeed.

Meet Patrice

November 4, 2013

Here in my life I have a purpose.
As do we all.

Mine is to make art beautiful.
To fulfill me, make my soul glow. To love, cherish, embrace the intangible
and make it real, touchable, to caress, to feel in your heart.
A living art created within my mind and expressed by my hand.

This is my purpose in this, this life of mine.
