Love is a renegade word

One month since my last post. In that time, I have continued to attend art festivals such as Galveston Food & Wine Festival. The travel schedule can be a little intense and I am resting today. Resting in bed, my favourite place from where to write a blog. Rarely am I resting in bed with … Continue reading

The Auspicious Invitation

My feelings of abandonment are subtle. I see it in relationships. I can’t say I feel overwhelmingly abandoned, it is subtle. Like a ghost from the past. I am glad to be adopted, grateful. It is the only way I can imagine my life. It feels safe. And yet I am caught in between worlds … Continue reading

Make a life you love

I’ve taken about ten steps back from social media, recently, with the thought of making available more time to paint. Two and a half years ago, I went back to school for my real estate license. I sold a few houses. I gave away about thirty paintings, then I sold a painting. Then, I sold … Continue reading

I wish for you much happiness in 2014

Me: I feel like I’m aging. Someone else: Camille, we’re all getting older every day. Different conversation .. Someone else: You live in fantasy, you don’t always live in reality. Me (thinking to myself): That makes sense .. I prefer it that way. Oh, I have missed writing my blog. I have missed my readers … Continue reading

Seek First the Questions

So, I never thought I would see a half-dressed man with his arms crossed, standing with his arms folded, in the lane of the interstate in which I was driving at midnight. I was driving home from White Linen Night in the Heights of Houston. It had been a long and intense day. My daughter … Continue reading

White Linen Night in the Heights of Houston

Someone told me, yesterday, I am sunny. That is a pleasant thing to say and I think it is important for each of us to be a light to the world, to the best we can be. I encourage it. Each of us has something like that in us but it is up to us … Continue reading

What is Undone becomes Beautiful Once Again

Painting is a series of risks, much like life. I see in my evolution of painting, that where once I was concerned about overpainting I am not currently thinking of it. I continue to paint as long as the canvas is speaking to me. There are paintings I held back on, for fear something undesirable … Continue reading

Right where I am Intended to be. And so are You.

I’m sitting at my computer, again, and I feel like a writer again. I cancelled internet at home several months ago. I called back two weeks later because I had changed my mind, wanted to resubscribe and I was told the charge would be nearly double. They said I had been grandfathered in, before. I … Continue reading

Definition of Definition and Other Definitions

It looks like it has been December since I have written my blog. It has been nearly two months, to the date. I have missed writing my blog but I’ve kept up with my newspaper writing and I wish I could share that with you but it is now behind a paywall. I liked it … Continue reading

Thanks for Being Along for the Experience

I’m tired and it’s the end of the year. I’m feeling contemplative and reflective. I’m feeling quiet, hardly chatty at all. But I have been meaning to write and tell you that my art is now represented by the lovely gallery, Affaire d’art, on Galveston Island. The owners, Kent and Sharis DeJaynes, have welcomed me … Continue reading
