Have you ever found yourself saying things that your Mother used to say to you or your siblings?
“Oh, Yes. Part of parenthood.”
I love my mom dearly.
There was no one else that could ground me like she did.
Leave it to Mom to get right to the point.
With advice this week, I started to write down the things that she has said.
Some words were serious and right to the point.
Others with some dry quirk humor.
One that never failed to make us giggle, because of the wording of this phrase.
“When the going gets tough, The tough get going.”
( a little twister at times to remember, yet a giggle always)
I have been one to not shy away from creative projects for sure.
An artist is always striving to better themselves and stretch their skills.
Below I am sharing a couple of sneak peak pictures.
This painted saddle will be at Horses Bring Hope’s (therapeutic riding program) October Gala.
A silent auction piece.

“Le Cadeau du Cheval“
Several artists in the Equine Art Guild were a part of this unique tribute to the horse. Click on the image above to read all about it and the artists who participated in it’s creation, as well as see where it will be coming to a location near you in the coming year!
Darla Dixon organized a group of artists who will create no-charge compassionate portraits for the families who have lost a loved one in Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom. We are looking for artists to join our efforts, and also for non-artists who will help spread the word about this free service and token of our gratitude to families who have sacrificed so much.”
