Press one for happy birthday

It is not for lack of content I have taken some time from writing this blog. If anything, there is an exceeding amount of content; so much so, it is challenging to know where to begin. I have had the good fortune of two visits to Manhattan in the past six months. There are so … Continue reading

Part of me has gone there to stay

I met Optimus Prime, yesterday, thanks to my eight year old son who invited me to the most recent Transformers movie. I admit, the ONLY reason I agreed to go to the movie yesterday was to spend two hours sitting beside my son and to do something he wanted to do that appeared to make … Continue reading

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

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

A breath of life

I have been travelling further into the season that I thought I would. I thought my travel would go through October and into the middle of November but I find myself still travelling. In the last two weekends, I have been to Galveston, Shreveport, Houston, then back to Shreveport again. I am grateful for the … Continue reading

c.s.ellington @ EXXOPOLIS

Life doesn’t always afford us the luxury of closure. I’ve had an odd life, I think we all have. Life IS odd. Each life is individual in its own way. I was born to two teenagers. I lived two weeks in Shreveport, Louisiana and then travelled the USA with my adoptive family. My life stayed … 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

Enter a Calm Space and Continue On

I wrote my column this evening, for The Lufkin News, for the first time in about six weeks. It is good to get a new start there. Since falling on my head, it has taken some time to get up and running, again. Not that I am running. But I am up. I am more … 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
