This is the result of artistic collaboration! The painting turned out wonderful!  I have no regrets about giving Lyn Deutsch   permission to paint from my original photo.  Thank you Lyn! I learned as child that sharing is good. “Give and ye shall receive” is a good motto to live by. If I never  gave her permission to use my photo for a reference,  there would only be one piece of art inspired by a scene but now there are two!

I saw this beautiful scene on  a wonderful vacation visiting my Dad in Oregon & we shared this special  moment in time together. It brought us joy at the time so why not share the joy with not only the people who view my photo but also all the people who will view Lyn’s painting?

Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the “I have to look out for number one” state of mind but when you look out for number two and three and more wonderful things can happen. I think it starts with letting go of fear, fear of “what if this or that happens?”  but sometimes when we really examine our fears we realize that even if the “this” or “that” happens it’s really not that bad and often “this” or “that” doesn’t even happen!

 I’ve found in my life over the years that even when things seem like they are not going the way I want them to be going , that things always turn out in the end. There is a lot of truth to the phrase “Let Go And Let God”. In other words, just live your life with the ups and downs and realize that it will all turn out ok in the end because it always does and remember to stop spending your time worrying and instead spend your time sharing, giving & helping others where you can!  God/ the Universe/ Your higher power will take care of the rest. 🙂
