So far great things have happened except the appearance of the long awaited summer itself!
We had an amazing show called "Step in to the Light" at the Holistic Art House the venue of our collective exhibition for the Brighton Festival Artist Open House Event. It ran throughout the whole month of May and I'd like to say a really big thank you to everyone that came to see us and who helped to make it such a wonderful success. Also a special thank you to all the people who voted for us in the Latest Homes Best Open House Awards for 2013 and helped us to become runners up! What an incredible achievement for our debut festival . You can find great pictures of the show on our FaceBook page The Holistic Art House, or on our website www.theholisticarthouse.com.
It was a great opportunity for me to showcase my latest painting "Harvest of Hope" and to get such wonderful feed back and public response to the first painting i have completed since the passing over of my beloved mother two years ago. It represents the the continuing journey of the heart , having come through the darkest part of the night in the "Path of Light" it now flows on out across the ripening fields into the warmth and golden sun of the bright day . These two paintings are know collectively as the Compassionate Companions.
Since the festival ended and our show came to a close I have been getting back into step with the everyday rhythm of life and am excitedly planning for our bright future. We have big plans and dreams.

The seeds had been planted and nurtured with water love and light
Now the fruits of your labours can ripen and come into form can grow and grow and grow, beyond all expectation of what you thought you did know.
The plants are well established and are growing every day
Keep on supplying them with love and light and positive thoughts
to help their daily development and upward climb, skyward reaching.
With the right conditions and no limitations or restrictions
their growth can be amazing and visible over night.
With huge advancement on a daily basis a handful of seeds can become an oasis.
The beacon of light of your collective hearts and minds combined
Can help ripen the harvest of hope in other people's lives
and inspire their own individual growth in kind.
Your show may be over and you may think your work is done,
But in essence it is just getting started and the results are yet to come.
The fertile soil and suitable conditions have allowed your seeds to grow but only with extra time and love and patience and trust will the abundance of your crop come to fruition.
You could put all the importance on the development of one fruit and judge the success of the season on its size shape colour and taste . Or you can wait and reap the benefit of the whole abundance of the entire season yet to come.
Allow the plants to continue to grow and develop on a daily basis.
It is way too early to go judging or looking for juicy ripened fruits
They are only just developing and are green and hard and not ready for consumption .
Do not be tempted to pluck them and be disappointed if they leave a bitter taste in your mouth. TRUST that in time they will grow and sweeten become juicy and delicious, healthy and nutritious. Patience is always required with the natural organic growth of anything.
Hopes, dreams and wishes as much as any delicate fruit, flower or fragrant bloom ~
