Jacqui Faye

Jacqui is famous for her Red Shoe Series, I feel blessed to have two paintings from the series. Honestly, if I had more wall space…I would buy more. I try to at lease buy two pieces of art from every artists. I love so many of her renderings of shoes! Hmmm, I may have to make room in my closet to hang some more…LOL!

She has some that are seductive without even a hint of womanly attributes. Just the shoes with the imagination of the viewer is all it takes to lure us into another space and time. Just what I love so much about art, taking a person out the realm of here and now, and transporting them to a different time and space. 


Shoes, presents, and ice cream….what’s not to like? The qualities of reflection and refraction of light makes it glimmer with excitement and anticipation. The texture of the bow on the box is evident. Soft material juxtaposed to the stainless steel spoon. Mmm, it’s just delicious!

A more adult approach, instead of a sinfuly delicious sundae, we are tempted with alcohol and a touch of forbidden fruit. 

Fountain of Youth, Workout Wednesday

Make it a Habit

Yep, I have been back on track, and I even helped with the fence this weekend. What have I learned on the journey? Not to be so hard on myself. Having a routine is great, yet being a property owner can have unpredictable moments. There are times that things have to be done when it is a scheduled workout, now I have learned to prioritze how important events are that need to be handled. Not everything is “must do now”. I have been living me life as though all “work” aspects are more important than my workout or health. I have also learned that I am a financial eater. When I start to stress about money or money matters I go for something salty or something chocolate.

Now, I have started drinking a glass of water instead of having that salty snack or that piece of chocolate that seems to be calling my name. Sometimes, it is really just thirst that is calling my name, and not the chocolate. I don’t care what anyone says the chocolate does taste good. It is hard to give up, and at this point I am not at the point where I no longer desire chocolate.

Hopefully, the next time I write about working out…I can tell you that I have broken my record. I do want cut this little rubber bracelet off my arm. It is so NOT me!!

How is it going for you?
