I want to say what a wonderful time I have had being a Guest Blogger for Black Eiffel. Thank you all, for letting me slip into your busy lives and share with you. I always love reading Black Eiffel, and I hope that you all enjoyed my posts. Blogging has been a really enjoyable process. I especially want to thank the Lovely Rachel -- It's been a lot of fun. Keep up the good work!
Since this is my final post, I would like to announce a little surprise. I am giving away the painting "It's All Make Believe III" to one lucky winner. If you want a chance to win this painting, just go to my website www.ParisGerrard.com, and send me an e-mail before Monday, March 31 with the subject line "Black Eiffel Painting Giveaway". The winner will be selected randomly and announced next week on Black Eiffel.
To wrap it all up, I would just like to express again how very grateful I am that art has found me. May I close with a quote by one of my hero's, Joesph Campbell. In one of their now famous interviews, Bill Moyers asked Joseph Campbell , "Do you ever have the sense of... being helped by hidden hands?" Campbell replied, "All the time. It is miraculous. I even have a superstition that has grown on me as a result of invisible hands coming all the time — namely, that if you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in your field of bliss, and they open doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be."
So, dear readers . . . find your passion . . . follow your bliss . . . go for it!
