we had a beautiful evening toasting in a new year, and sharing a delicious meal at wasabi's, and i created this painting for her as a birthday gift. since her 'word' for the year is 'listen', i painted a heart with the word, held close to the heart of the listening lady. my sister lori (lori-diane blog) had given me some vintage wallpaper that became the background for this painting.
'knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens' ~jimi hendrix
'since in order to speak, one must first listen, learn to speak by listening
i should sell my tongue and buy a thousand ears when that one steps near and begins to speak'
'be still, and know that I AM God' ~psalm 46:10
