I hope this photo expresses, just how excited I am, that I’ve been commissioned to paint a seascape and a house number right on this boogie board that will be bolted to the front of a house at a beach town in Florida. Huh?!?
Does it get any cooler? Yip!
BTW I actually have played on this board in the ocean.
Today was grand day.
I got to hang out with Dr. Mary Lemmond, who just so happens to be apart of the Ruidoso Garden Club. So since I’m building an interactive garden, actually two, the Peace Garden and the Hope Garden … I of course am extremely interested in what say her!
What a special day, as she selected two pavers … one that will honor her sister (one of the 5 belles, as their daddy called them) and one for a sister from another mother.
By doing so she supported the Peace Garden.
Who may I honor for you today? It’s the place where we honor our most exceptional loves.
Zoom in and select you paver number. Message me.
All proceeds go to the cost involved in building the gardens, waterfalls and fish pond where the butterfly tree lives.
What a honor and privilege it is to get to do what I do … I thank God every moment.
Mary made a cool bird house today also.

Black And Blue – About This Series… by Mandy Joy
While I paint, I very often listen to music and let my mind wander. Imagery sometimes floats through my head and inspires a painting or even an entire series. “Black And Blue” by Counting Crows is one of my favorite songs, despite the sad message, or perhaps because of the sad message. Duritz writes and sings of many hard and real situations in life. This one is about a girl, contemplating suicide, who then lies in bed next to him instead. The way the story is told throughout the song almost seems to me like it could have entirely been in his dream that this happened. Of course, those who have indeed lost someone to suicide also feel it must have been a dream. This provokes images in my head of the sometimes confusing line between reality and imagination, especially in life’s most deep and unbelievable situations, like when someone you know is truly suffering. These paintings – in black, white, and blue – show dreamlike scenes, memories, and peaceful images with meaning to me. In line with Counting Crows “One for sorrow, two for joy…” One is a memorial. Two have to do with strength, perseverance, and victory over hard times. Three are how I imagine “the other side” when someone is now at peace, either in life or in death. I have lost a grandfather I never knew to suicide, as well as classmates and friends when I was in my youth. I’ve experienced the confusion and the ripple effect of the aftermath, and after picturing them at peace, moved on. Feel free to ask me about any individual painting and what it means to me if you would like to know. I hope the gravity of the paintings adds a deeper layer of meaning to this than just the beauty, although if one would rather enjoy the painting only for its beauty or what it means to them, that is just as important. I believe that whatever brings happiness or serenity to one’s life, without taking from another, should be pursued.
