Sometimes Love....

After drawing out my many bike painting compositions I had this overwhelming sense of joy.  Like bursting at the seams joy.  Total big puffy heart moment.  And then these words came, and this bike had to be floating with heart balloons holding it up.  Because folks, sometimes love is exactly what we need to move mountains.  And at this very moment in our little Horne family life we have the perfect harmony of just this.  Yep.  Gooey puffy heart stuff.  And it is SO about to be coming out in my work.  Just warning ya. 

Billy and I hit the 15 year anniversary mark last week (we've been together a total of 19 years with dating).  I'll admit it's not been a silly log ride, but rather a roller coaster with way too many upside down loops.  I harbor a ton of guilt for past mistakes, mostly with money.  But through it ALL, like crap hitting the ceiling fan ALL, he has stood by me.  Sometimes I ask myself why.  I mean I wouldn't stay.  I wouldn't put up with me.  But he has.  He's been my red balloons.  Holding me up, carrying me through the toughest of times.  Sometimes with silence, sometimes with words.   He's an example for me...to learn to be content, learn to forgive, and learn to just love


So there it is, some depth into the me.  The me who makes all these silly little paintings.  Oh man are they an extension of who I aspire to be.

Great painting! Happy anniversary to you and Billy. T and I hit 5 years this year (13 together total). And he puts up with a lot of my crap too. As far as I'm concerned the men who marry the women with Lewis genes border sainthood for their patience. Ha! Anyway, hope y'all have a great anniversary and good luck with your upcoming shows!

Love this painting! Love the words! I think your paintings are an extension of who I You ALREADY are. Maybe, you just don't know it. Beautiful, really. Trinity Spotlight on Art show looks like a wonderful thing to be involved in. Have fun - Oh, and, here's some water!
