If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.
I made this painting for David and Mira Newman, two beautiful musicians that I have been lucky enough to meet in person when they performed at my local yoga center. Their music touches my heart in a way that it often makes tears well up in my eyes!
A few days after I finished this painting, I got an email newsletter from David and Mira announcing the birth of their baby, May 2, 2011 at 6:16 PM. I realized that the day Mira gave birth was the day I started on their painting. I loved that that they were in my thoughts and I was sending them love that entire day. It felt like such a sweet connection, one that I hadn’t planned on, but just sort of happened.
At first I didn’t notice, but similar stories of connection have happened so many times since I started the Hundred Thank Yous project. It makes me think that my paintings in this project are actually prayers. Prayers of love and well-being for people I care about. I believe the paintings carry the energy of deep, heartfelt gratitude that I hope will be a blessing in their homes, one that lasts a lifetime.
