Re- Engagement

Hey Everyone;

Happy Memorial Day weekend.  Hope you are all well.. can’t believe that we are already at the start of summer.. We are busy loading up the studio with new works…Here is my latest creation.. it is 40 x40, oil stick, oil, silver leaf on handstrectched canvas… it is titled ” Re-Engagement”.  None of us get through life without enduring some sort of set back.  it’s inevitable that we have them… the question is how do we handle it?.. I am a firm believer that it’s all about the re-engagement and moving forward… some of my greatest successes have come after some sort of set back.  Whether its personal, professional or even social, the only way to overcome is to re- engage.   Stand up and move forward.  Not always the easiest, but always the most fruitful.  Here’s hoping that if you have a set back you can re-engage and move into your own successful realm.  Hope you all enjoy…I’ll have another piece out shortly… take care

we all have detour’s

Hey Everyone; Hope you are all doing well… Here is my latest creation.. it is 6ft x 4 ft, oil and gesso… it is titled “Detour” .

Life’s detours

Sometimes life will present you with an unexpected detour. Sometimes you’ll spend a lot of time and effort, and end up right back where you started. Such times are no reason for despair. Rather, they provide an opportunity for renewed determination and commitment.

Sometimes, things will not go as you planned. When that happens, keep in mind that much of life’s richness comes from its unpredictability.

Rather than cursing the detours that life throws your way, explore what they have to offer. Even though you’re not moving in the direction you intended to go, you can still make positive progress.

No moment is wasted when you live it with passion and purpose. Every sincere effort brings a valuable reward, even though the result may not be exactly as you planned. Getting there the fastest is not nearly as important as making the most of every moment.

Value and enjoy the journey, even when there are detours along the way.

— Ralph Marston


We will have another one ourt shortly… talk soon …….peace ………..james
