Occasionally I will find a space that speaks to me. It makes me calm and happy to be there. I guess it is what is referred to as Feng Shui. I like the order of the place. The way the sun strikes me is energizing. My eye and mind is directed to focus on a particular tree. At the end of a days work, I feel rested and at peace. My dog, Samantha, finds her place behind my knees when I lay on the couch. Her heart and breathing slow down. This environment had this effect on me. I created several paintings here. It is situated in the middle of the MBA facilities at the University of Texas in Austin...right behind the knees.
