The sun is shining here in West Michigan. We don’t have much snow. I will say it again, THE SUN IS SHINING. Blue skies always make me smile. ALWAYS! It doesn’t matter how my day is playing out. I can look up and see the blue AND I will smile. I can handle whatever is thrown in my path.
If I allow myself, heading to the beach is even better. Seeing a big body of water also makes me smile. I don’t care if it’s 80 degrees or 15 degrees with the wind howling. You just have to wear the appropriate clothing and I’m “good to go”. Like today, my goal is to bake three different types of cookies, make a roast, and have my parents over for dinner. Hmmm, where am I headed first? To the beach with Bruce, for a wander.
What in the world does any of this have to do with selling artwork? Well, it’s the last stretch for Holiday gifts. The gallery is open for shopping. It was discovered last night, in our household, that one of us didn’t realize that Christmas stockings still matter. And one of us, should not be filling our personal stocking.
Last minute shopping will be needed by many of us.
Do you or someone you know love beaches? Here is how we can help with a gift reminding them of their favorite place:
