Painting by Patricia Govezensky
The first time I discovered this eclectic Israeli artist occurred when I was encouraged by my writing mentor to create this blog. I have always appreciated art of any genre, yet creative writing was novel to me.
Patricia’s vibrant artwork spurred me on and here I am connecting two seemingly unrelated topics. Her feminine subjects and picturesque sceneries pull me in to seeing somewhat of my myself. That is when the danger and audacity to write about self becomes bold and hopefully interesting. Patricia’s portfolio is so extensive that I have been able to tap into her intense palette to write honestly about myself. She is able to frame life by her creative spirit as if I was modeling for her. I see my reflection in her many paintings. In this particular image, I am framed in a colorful respite moment, waiting for a new delight to appear and make my day absolutely gorgeous.
What ties art and writing together? The freedom of expression and use of medium to communicate thought. In other words, what resonates in the heart and mind becomes a keepsake for all time.
Aah! The brilliance of God’s gift of artistic talent blended with mind stirring thoughts… giving me endless joy for writing.

A few nights ago I woke up pleasantly after dreaming…
In a dark space darted in rainbow I heard myself speak:
“You are so beautiful”
Three times this phrase touched my ears. The next morning I silently asked, “Who was I speaking to?” Thinking maybe it was the Holy Trinity. By middle of the day I wondered again and quickly asked God to tell me whom I had spoken to in the dream.
Three days later while worshipping with Prophet Hank Kunnemann, he prayed 3 times, “God, You are so beautiful.” That moment gave me the answer…Allelulia, Amen.
Has this ever happened to you? It is so good to ask God when we need answers. Just wait expectantly. He will give them to you…Praise the Lord!
Abstraction Ceramic by Georgia O’Keeffe (1979-1980)
Whatever you see here, I am more than what you see!
From all of my maker’s 2,029 creations, I belong to a rare ceramic collection that my benefactor, Georgia O’Keeffe, molded during her twilight years when her eyes were failing. Her eye guide was Juan Hamilton originally called to repair plumbing in her house, but soon became her handyman confidante until her death in 1986.
This said, my ceramic foundation is sleekly firm. Which of the two swirling circles appeared first? You can decide for yourself. Then come two main circles. What a combination, don’t you think? Like when a person has compassion for another’s suffering, the two meet in a circle of genuine empathy to console with love. Compassion, that is what I project in this rare ceramic. But of course, you, the onlooker, may see whatever comes from your heart. That, too, is compassion. Whatever the case may be, I offer you unswerving peace.
Like the peace that Mary speaks of at Medjugorje:
“I invite you to help others through your peace, so that they see it, and begin to look for peace within themselves.”

Shine light for hope on someone

Under swaying balloon lights
