I have long held the belief that art holds the power to heal. There is something so singularly personal about art when it speaks to you. It is as if you are looking at a visual representation of something you have always thought but been unable to express. For me, I find myself most intrigued by art that brings me joy. (Perhaps because art that can do this is a rare find.) Spending our month focusing on “Here Comes the Sun” seems like the perfect time to acknowledge those artists that, indeed, bring the shine.

Lucy Reiser Williams is one of those artists that just plain gets me. Her work is wonderfully bright and energetic, kinetic and vibrant. Reiser Williams’ invitation work is something to behold but let’s focus for just a moment on the paintings. Friends, I cannot express to you how much joy the work of Lucy Reiser Williams brings me. The abstract paintings absolutely smile with color and the floral collection is something guaranteed to bring the beauty of nature into your home with ease. Let’s celebrate the sun. Let’s celebrate with Lucy Reiser Williams.

Lucy Reiser Williams is giving away one Fine Art Giclee Print of the Painting, Lilium, to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Wednesday, June 11th. *Open to US residents only.*
Please visit Lucy Reiser Williams and tell us: Do you have any goals for this year? How far along are you in achieving them?
Start checking the winner’s box on Tuesday, June 17th, to see if you’ve won!

    I have recently started working again after being a stay-at-home Mom the past two years and it has been an adjustment for sure! My goal is for be to be able to do both jobs well because if either suffer, it’s not worth it. I am only working 10-12 hours a week and so far so good but this summer may be a challenge! Love your work Lisa!

    My goal this year was to find a way forward to do the things I love.  I’m in a PhD program so I do a lot of studying and writing, but I feel like so little of my work matters to people or helps them.  I got into this profession because I wanted to help people – to make a difference and to help us solve some of our problems in society.  This year, I’ve started trying to write for the general public, not following the advise of my department in publishing in journals so I can secure a good job in the future.  So far I’ve published two things this year:  a book chapter in a volume for parents, and an article in The Atlantic.  It continues to be a struggle.  But I’m trying!!!!!

    My biggest goal this year is to make the BIG move out West.  I’ve lived all along the East Coast and never more than a few hours from some family member, but this Fall I’ll be heading out and taking a big leap!

    I make goals each year and this is the first year that I can actually say I am reaching them. My goals are more about being a better human..being  in service more….paying it forward.giving more of me to those who are in need….and the past six months have proven when you are paying it forward in life and being grateful for what  you have your life begins to shift.. doors open ..and many positive things begin to unfold in your own life….

    Lucy love you girl, this painting is bananas 😉 my goals for this year are to live a minimalist lifestyle and to relax and enjoy my life with my two little sweet boys. the minimalist thing in some ways is easy and some hard. i have definitely cut down on a lot of stuff but i’ve got a good way to go!

    My goals for this year aren’t as measurable as they could be–I really want to be less stressed and more disciplined, which sounds contradictory but isn’t, really. So far I think I’m learning more about both, so I’m happy! =)

    Also, I adore this painting.

    I have two goals this year: continue paying down debt and get fit again. In the last year and a half I have paid off over $11,000 in debt, and I still have plenty to go, but I’m focused and making progress each month. As far as getting for again, I started walking in March to ease myself into exercise again & now I’m starting to train for a 5K. I’m also trying to limit my I take of animal proteins & focus more on whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. I’m already starting to feel better.

    Right now my life at age 62 is in a bit of turmoil. My husband of less than 2 years became abusive and mean and angry so in middle of a divorce.  I moved in with my amazing dad who will be 90 soon. We had a kitchen flood so next Tuesday we have to move to temporary apartment for 2 months during construction.  My goal ???   Keep the POSITIVE attitude I always have knowing that I am in a very safe place and starting the next chapter of my my life

    My current goal is to get my daughter to sleep through the night.  We moved across the country and have been in a one bedroom apartment for the past 3 months.  Its been a rough go!  I would give my right arm for a good night’s sleep!! haha 🙂 We are about to close on our first home, and I hope she starts sleeping well in her own bedroom once we move.  This art would be absolutely perfect in our home, and would brighten my day and mood whenever I look at it!  LOVE <3 Thanks for the chance!

    My two major goals for the year were to present at least one paper at a professional conference, and to start meeting people outside of my doctoral cohort. As of a couple weeks ago, my paper was accepted to a conference, and I’m slowly but surely stepping outside my comfort zone to meet people. I became an outreach coordinator for a graduate group, so meeting people is kind of a job requirement!

    My goal this year is to fill my new apartment with joy! And to make it a place for community. Hince, this joyful painting I LOVE! Lucy and I were on summer staff together at Crooked Creek. You are truly incredible and talented, Lucy!

    My goal is to take my kids to any city in the US so they can learn about places that shape America.  We went to see the Redwood in CA.  We plan to visit New York and Philly this summer.  Best way to learn is to visit them.

    My goal this year was to be more present. It is an ongoing process, but I really do feel like I am making progress and am doing a much better job of enjoying the now!

    Sparrow says:

    Ah, Lucy! You cut me to the quick with this question. I want to write. To carve out time every day to write and write and write, just to put words on paper and with the birth of my latest (making it three boys under the age of 4), not much writing has happened, and when it has, I am scrambling to record the unusual and amazing things my kids say. I’m recommitting to doing better. Writing helps me process and I feel more grounded within myself when take that quiet moment.

    Pumpernickel says:

    I have the goal of being a more engaged parent. Art projects, family outings, creative and healthy meals, playing with the kids more… It’s going well but my boys are 3 1/2 and 10 months and I have a lot on my plate. Sometimes if I can get through the day without someone having a breakdown (myself included) it feels like a major success. This has been a good lesson in finding the joy in simplicity.

    I was hoping for a nice private email but goals require accountability. And movement. My goal is to finish my MFA. I am physically disabled and for quite some time my life has suffered from inertia, both literally (physically) and emotionally. One can only stay still for so long and simply wanting something, and talking about it, are not enough to create change. So I confirmed with my department at the school that I am welcome back and have almost completed the paperwork. Gathering the equipment I will need for the move to Los Angeles. Changing meds and diet to be as healthy as possible and working on accepting the wheelchair me in a very body-conscious town. The last, unfinished and most difficult part – putting aside pride and asking for grants and fellowships. But I am celebrating the movement, much as your art does. The colors remind me of a bright summer day in Los Angeles and, when I hang it, it will remind me of my success; first for trying, next for arriving, and finally for achieving when it will share a wall with my diploma.

    My goal is use my left hand more so it isn’t so useless. I’ve been trying very hard to do a lot of my tasks with my left hand and so far its been a success! Something fell of the shelf the other day and I caught it instinctively with my left hand. I was so proud.

    Hi Lucy,

    I am a Lutheridge friend of your mom’s. My two goals for the year are to complete a half-marathon and lose weight. You would think I would lose weight by running alone but noooooooo! So wish me luck in both endeavors. Your work is beautiful — and would provide me some needed inspiration! So I hope I’m the winner! Thank you and have a wonderful day.

    My big goals for the year were get connected to the community in my new town and tackle some projects around our house. Although we’ve painted a lot of walls, the building new community things is slower and a lot less tangible, but still a wonderful growing process. And Lucy Williams’ work inspires me too 🙂

    My goal for the year is to plan, organize, and execute a Christ filled, beautiful wedding for my daughter Madison on June 28th! We are 2 weeks and 3 days from achieving it! And, with God’s grace, seem to be on track for a joyful ceremony.
