All My Best

All My Best, 5x7 in - acrylic 

In order to succeed at anything in this life, we must face the prospect of failure. Facing a white canvas can be a daunting experience, but regardless of success or failure, what an experience! Maude Adams says it so much better than I could.

"Life is so fresh, life is every day so new if we are fighting, only for the best. Sometimes I think the only real satisfaction in life is failure, failure in your endeavor to do your best." - Maude Adams

​My Three Sisters

"We are three sisters
Three sisters are we
I love each of you,
And I know you love me
We're not always together,
Life sometimes keeps uo apart.
But we're never seperated
We're in each others heart.
Now I know we've had our troubles,
But we always get thru.
The real message is you love me,
And I also love you.
We have lots of good times that we'll never forget
Sometimes we worry
And sometimes we fret
But if God ever gave me
Something special you see,
It might have been the blessing of, Three sisters are we.
The Lord abouve has gave me lots
Of happiness and glee
But the most special thing he did was Make us sisters, all three."
