Art and Love from Me to You

A Practice of Gratitude

grat kit 1

For me, gratitude is a practice.  

My first thoughts are not always of gratitude, even in situations where there is a lot to be grateful for.  If I am not present, I often don’t even realize the blessings.  

One thing I have learned from making 100 paintings for 100 people, is that gratitude grows.  The more thankful I am, the more thankful I become.  

This idea -focusing on gratitude creates even more reasons to be grateful- is the inspiration behind my Gratitude Kit, A Month of Thank Yous.  I want to extend my experience of making and giving away a hundred paintings in gratitude, and turn it into something that will keep on giving and spreading love and thankfulness to even more people, for a longer time to come.

The energy of gratitude is real.  It grows and expands, gathering more and more good with it.  

This Gratitude Pack has 30 different postcards of my artwork for a month’s worth of giving thanks to people who have made your life brighter.  You might want to stretch out the experience and send one post card a week.  You could keep your favorite cards as a gift to yourself.  You could have a dinner party, put one card on every plate and write one thing you love about each person on the back of the card.  

The possibilities are endless.  I’d love to hear your ideas for using the Gratitude Kit, if you’re open to sharing!


Love has wings.  Love spreads and heals. Give the gift of love to someone special to you…
