I was born on this day 55 years ago. I love my birthday - it is exactly two weeks before Christmas. I also love being a Sagittarius, the coolest of birth signs (I think!).
This photo is of a Dahlia; my mother-in-law's beautiful first name. My daughter wants me to paint this photo for her, no lines. We're putting it on a 24x24 canvas, very zen. She's been bugging me for months but it will probably not even get started until after the holidays. Sshhhh...
Life is good right now. I am still finishing up commissions and have a couple of Christmas projects in the works. I am getting my Christmas tree today (last year's had a little bird's nest in it!), going to the movies, maybe getting a massage, and just enjoying life. I am starting to exercise again and am working on my meditation practice. I have a party to attend this weekend, I am hosting a gathering next weekend, and am invited to another gathering on the 20th. My family is healthy, and I am happy. Thanks to all for supporting me, my art, following my blog, and I hope you have the most joyous of holidays.


  1. Happy birthday, Dee, and thanks for sharing your art and thoughts with us.

  2. I hope you have a wonderful birthday!


  3. Happy Birthday Dee,

    I also have a birthday this month and being a Sagitaris is the best. For those who are not then knowing one or two will keep you hopping.
