Rising Sun

It felt too weird to be posting pics of Italy while I'm here in Corvallis, so I decided to post this picture of my most recent painting, Jenny's Rising Sun. I hung out with Jenny here in Corvallis today and was finally able to give it to her, so I could also post it here without spoiling the gift!

My friend Jenny left the company we both worked for earlier this year to start her own business, Rising Sun Coaching, where she coaches people to help them find happy and fulfilling lives. I'm so inspired by her, she is one of the most amazing people I know!

I have had this painting rattling around in my head for a couple of months and finally committed it to canvas when I knew that I would be coming to Corvallis and could actually give it to her. It's interesting, it's the first painting I've ever done for someone else, and the first painting I've given away. I thought I would feel a little bit of loss when I gave it to her but I think I actually feel the opposite. It's like there is a piece of me there with her wherever she decides to put it, hopefully providing positive energy and inspiration.

I'm enjoying my time here in Oregon so far, about ready to head out for dinner with some other friends. I'm fading fast but trying to make it through so that I'm functional for the next week. World travel is fabulous, except for the jet lag. Our bodies are just not made for this!
