Another Sneak Peek at Bethville

“Life is not the way it’s supposed to be. It’s the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference.”
– Virginia Satir

Sneak Peek – 6″ x 12″ Acrylic on Gallery Wrapped Canvas

I finished the first three paintings in the Bethville series over the weekend.  It’s really cloudy outside or I’d get a better photo.  This is taken on saw horses in my sign shop lobby.   Maybe by Wednesday, I’ll have the full view for you.  🙂

Did you watch the Academy Awards last night?  I watched about an hour of it and my favorite part was seeing Octavia Spencer win an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.  She cried!  It was so sweet that I was almost crying with her.    I really need to watch The Help.  I still haven’t seen it.  Have you?

About Virginia Satir

American psychotherapist Virginia Satir played a central role in shaping family therapy. She was born in Wisconsin in 1916. While working as a teacher, she became deeply involved in the lives of her students and their parents. This led to graduate school and a career change. She took on the mission of inspiring therapists to work with families. She cofounded the Mental Health Research Institute in California, where she held the first-ever family-therapy training program. She died in 1988.

    Love it! Love the colors and the style. It just looks so cute and happy. I really like this quote, too! Although I do believe we each have the power to make *some* positive changes, it’s our overall attitude that determines our happiness (another complicated topic).

    I did not watch the Oscars. In fact, I don’t think I’ve seen any of the movies nominated for anything this year, and I have always been a huge movie buff. It’s like the movie industry has lost something. But, I would like to see The Artist. The Help – I don’t know. It’s controversial is all I know, but I haven’t really read too much about it. I’m a little worried about the whole “attractive white woman helps black women find their voice?” or something. Then again maybe it really is a feel good movie. Let us know!

      Thanks, Cindy! I do love color! I don’t usually watch the Oscars because I don’t know the movies. I’m in the “old” demographic now and they don’t really make movies for us any more. 🙂
