Vacation via a painting--the work of artist KELLI KAUFMAN

At different points in life the feeling of wanting to be anywhere but here, wherever here happens to be at that moment, is so real and strong that I feel it with every bit of my being. Life, very real life, has been intense over the last few weeks and the desire to escape to more pleasant ground has been palpable. Fortunately, I work with talented artists and receive images of beautiful paintings on almost a daily basis. And so the escape happens exactly when it seems I most need it when an email comes in with an image of a completed piece that takes me on a little vacation in my mind.

I can always count on one of those moments of respite anytime I open an image by Louisiana painter KELLI KAUFMAN. And it seems that art collectors receive the same gift from Kelli whenever they connect with a piece and know that it has to live in their home to take them on a peaceful trip every time they look at the piece.

So thank you, Kelli Kaufman! I needed some time this morning to just be in a few of your paintings to meditate and hit the pause button to soak in the peace that comes through them.
