Today I started out thinking of love found and love lost. Those moments in a relationship that are truly authentic, exciting and wonderful are so precious. When a relationship, love or life doesn't meet up to our expectations the disappointment can be heart breaking.

Today a friend reminded me that when love ends, fails or is lost those precious memories and feelings can live on in our hearts and minds.

I love to create art from those powerful and passionate moments. I call it spontaneous art created from emotional response. What the heck is that you might ask? It's simply making art from pure emotion. Positive or negative letting go onto canvas or paper is very freeing. Art therapy for the soul!

As an artist I am lucky that I can create and re-create these precious moments. After all love experienced is transformative and beauty often remains.
