New Work: The Landscape
"Very little grows on jagged rock. Be ground. Be crumbled, so wildflowers will come up where you are." ~Rumi
This painting is still on the easel, unfinished! Now the first of March, it's time to put up a celebration of spring ahead painting. Winter hasn't yet left town, but the doves are building a nest close by: and I'm enjoying hearing the rustle of wings, and their soft talk back and forth to one another. Bluebirds will be building their nests soon. Sunshine-filled daffodils are blooming here, and their tender whispers of fragrance lifts my spirits. Always. Life goes on, here in my small town, here in my old house, here in my heart. Every day, I get up and feel grateful for one more day. Another day to make art and create: you won't find me spending hours at the malls or local bars: it seems like time gets shorter and more precious in how to spend it: so I choose carefully. You'll probably find me outside on the back deck if the weather is good: painting or working on a new sculpture. There's nothing I'd rather be doing.
