Dorothy Fagan Peace Collection
A Garden of the Heart
Her art tells the inspirational story of Dorothy's search for peace.
Overcoming fears through perseverance, she finds inspiration painting landscapes from Virginia to France & Tuscany. A far cry from anything she ever imagined, her path strayed way outside the lines.
As she struggled to use her paint brush to find peace in a chaotic world, she met Jim.
"I'll never forget what he blurted out over dinner that first week I met him. 'Your art is your search for the peace that has been missing from your life.' Tears gushed into my salad, images flipped feverishly through my head."
How could he know this if he'd just met her? And yet, she felt she'd always known him ~ but how?
For their wedding, Dorothy wrote a poem . . . Garden of the Heart . . . a place to put down roots, to build a nest, to sow some seeds for autumn afternoons. A rich and fertile space where dreams grow up and learn to fly. A special corner of this world where sun shines always after rain, and winds sigh gently before dusk.
As each chapter of their life together unfolded, vibrant strokes of color spewed healing art from her hand. Waking Dreams revealed their past life together. She found harmony painting Earth Sky Water as she slowly acknowledged the Creator inside her . . . 27 years later . . . they live her poem in real life, as they paint in France and Tuscany.
"I resonate with your fealess abandonment of 'staying within the lines' with your palette, brush, and heart. As Walt Whitman stated about epiphany: 'I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines.' Thank you!” Penny, Virginia
