I am so thrilled to be back into my large art studio again to celebrate the New Year of 2018 !
I have always enjoyed walking through the door of my studio to a warmness, an inviting coziness that is serene yet stimulating. The radio, that is quietly playing a classical tune, is there to greet me.
This is my place to create, my place to dream…
I have several projects I will be working on and creating this year. The first one I will be painting is ‘The Weight of Wings in a Dark Forest’.
I am excited to paint this lovely work and I will be mixing the many hues of gold, lavender, rose, umbers and charcoal hues from the primary colors.
I will share some of these photographs of my progress this year.

Looking back upon this year I feel so very blessed to have dear people in my life who truly love me; Family and friends are true Gifts from God. The time I have spent with each one of you has been wonderful. I am grateful for you all.
I have lost some precious people in my life this past year, including my brother Benjamin Spencer Flannery. I will always treasure the wonderful moments we shared together growing up and all the fun times we had during the Christmas season. Ben and I loved to go sledding in the snow and drink hot chocolate. He would always collect the scrap branches from our pine tree at Christmas after Dad would trim the tree, then he would make his own tree with lights and ornaments to put on his bedroom dresser. He was so sweet as a child.
I remember all of the fine scents from my Grandmas’ kitchen as she baked pies and cookies for the Family.
As a little girl, I would read books under our Christmas tree at night until I fell asleep. It is so sweet to have great childhood memories that one can recall throughout the years. They always make me smile with joy.
I am also pleased with one of my gifts from Paul! He gave me the gift of beautiful Hickory hardwood floors. They were just finished on Friday in time to enjoy for the Holidays. Thank you Paul, XO…
We would like to wish all of our dear friends, family and clients a very Merry Christmas and healthy, joyful New Year!
I am so thankful to God for the things he has given us and the things he has taken away…
Blessings to you all and your loved ones this Holiday Season! Enjoy all of your precious moments!
” To be able to hear the divine calling, for grace to flow abundantly, it is enough to love something dearly, music, the sun, or a little child.” – Ramakrishna
The season of Christmas and the coming of the New Year has always felt like the most serene and reflective gift I could ever receive as a young girl.
It was always natural for me to take the time of reflection and allowance for myself and other individuals to be just that….a very special entity, an individual unto the world, to spread the joy of one’s unique creation, hope and love to one another.
I believe as we get older many of us do forget the unique power we yield to make a difference in this world as creators, as children of the Creator.
I wish for us all the remembrance of the grace and glory we all share in…
