I think it is called "going with the flow."  After almost 24 years in one place, the Lang household is moving. .  .  not very far, but still a major undertaking.  There is a tremendous amount of sorting of treasures to be done.  And lots of laughs and tears while doing it. There are boxes of memories that haven't been touched in years. So, now, my motto is "one more look, and then into the bin!"

 It is, indeed, the nature of moving on - closing one chapter and starting something new.  I will definitely miss my favorite neighbors and my wonderful garden - my little paradise away form the rest of the world - but am all the more looking forward to my new studio on the top floor of a small house. There are big windows and a perfect spot for my art work. I will be able to look out at the tree tops while painting and watch the squirrels and birds at eye level.  It will be a good change and give me a brand new perspective on my work. And friends are definitely invited to come and see the new studio, too.

I am really looking forward to the challenge!

Spring Garden in Blue
For my readers in Germany, I also have a small exhibit at the moment in the Gutsmühle in Minsleben/Wernigerode.  Under the title of "Frühlingsgefühle" (Spring Feelings) I have several of my newest watercolors and a few old favorites on display.  The mill is unfortunately not open on a daily basis;  send me a mail ( you are in the area and would like to see the exhibit.  I'm sure we can arrange something.

Spring Garden in Green

My thought for the day comes from the French author André Gide;
"Man can not discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore."
