Joy's Garden

"Every one of your paintings is your search for the peace that's been missing from your life."

Jim and Dorothy on a cycling trip in PennsylvaniaHis words spilled out across the table on their first date. Naked, exposed in the middle of the restaurant, tears ran down her cheeks. Images flipped quickly, confirming the truth of his words. Dorothy had always wondered why she felt so driven to paint some images, not others.

Every single painting was driven by her desperate search for peace. 

Together Dorothy and Jim have painted life with color, passion, and heart. With every painting, peace.


Color is the Creator's way of shinning Light into everyday life. A glint of sunlight in a gray day, or a bright pink blouse lifts our spirits.

Balancing colors in each painting, Dorothy uses a Color Sensing method whereby emotions are translated into color hues. Painting them transforms each emotion into physical form, where it is released to the Creator, enabling peace to fill the heart.

She calls her process "CreativSOUP," stirring the Creator's instructions with questions, day to day circumstances, and faith. Her process flexes the "faith muscle," the name she took at Confirmation in her church at age 12.

The Dorothy Fagan Collection is created from thirty years of finding Faith by painting colors of the heart.
