A Time for Hope

It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow. Robert H. Schuller

This time of year is a time when millions of people celebrate this message of hope, rebirth and renewal. Its a beautiful time of year when winter finally shakes its dreary coat off and life once again springs out of its long dark slumber. When the sun graces us with its light, one can’t help but to feel rejuvenated and alive. It is a time for everyone  to embrace hope and reach out to capture dream(s) and make them a reality.

These past few years, since my Grandparents passed away, I made a promise to myself (and to them) that I would make my dream of being an artist a reality. I felt reborn, as if I had awoken from a winter slumber and have finally awoken to a sense of purpose and being. This past year has been full of hard work leading to this promise. All the sacrifices I have had to make, are starting to pay off and my art is beginning to receive some recognition! A few months ago, the arts editor from a local English language newspaper here in Munich, Michael Owens, kindly asked me for an interview. Needless to say, I was very happy to oblige. You can read the full interview here.  Also, I have an “unplanned” art show this approaching weekend. “Unplanned” because it was a serendipitous invitation from the lovely Emmy Horstkamp of BCA Munich Artists. I wasn’t expecting to have another show before the end of May at ArtMuc. I have been spending some time with Emmy since our Yolanda Art  Swap Fundraiser,  and I am so glad to have the privledge of getting to know her — I advise all munich artists to get to know her. She also wrote about my work on their Blog and weekly newsletter. She is truly a friend and champion for art and artists. This show is planned to run officially from the 3oth of April to May the 4th (which makes it all the more special for me –if you are a geek like me, you know what I’m talking about wink wink nudge nudge) in BCA Munich Artists headquarters located on Frauenstr. 18. There is also a tentative Vernissage Brunch on Sunday May 27th — But I will confirm dates and times once again through all the various social networks I am active in. The image above will be one of the pieces available at the show. The image is encased in a one-of-a-kind german Jugendstil (ca. 1900) wood carved frame.

Also, another cause for celebration, I can now officially publicise that I have taken the giant step of QUITTING the agency! SO VERY EXCITED about this — as this means more time to realise my goals! Last day at the agency is June 13th 2014…Brace yourselves 😉
