welcome to my WordPress blog. I am a contemporary painter of primarily abstract art writing about art and the art of life, at this point only occasionally. I have four decades of my own life within me and am a mother of three wonderful kids whose names have inspired my own.
c.s.ellington is a combination of the names of my children. Much of my life has been devoted to their lives, though new chapters are beginning. I believe in adventure. I believe in love. I believe that each person ultimately knows what they need in life. I have loved listening to my children.
In the writings on my blog, I want to include stories. I have many. I remember being in my early twenties and spending quite a lot of time with my maternal grandmother, Lola, and listening to her stories. There was an endless supply. I sat for hours at a time taking the stories in. I enjoyed her company so very much and admired the life she had built. I wanted something like that, I wanted more stories. About twenty years later, I have them. And the confidence in myself to write out anything I wish. Thanks for sharing your life with me by being here.
There were times in my twenties and thirties I was an unusually private person. I am not so much that way, anymore. I started asking myself who I was sharing my life with, who I was allowing to have access into my life. I decided I wanted to grow to become a more full person and be available to a greater degree in relationships. The thinking evolved and the path appeared. I am happy you are here. Welcome to my life, in the process you may learn a little about art.
