Art: Life in Bloom

A delicate fabric of bird song
Floats in the air,
The smell of wet wild earth
Is everywhere.

~ Sara Teasdale, excerpt from 'May Day'

May brings warmer weather, bloom, bluebirds flitting to and from the nest. Almost every day, I'm painting outside on the front porch: pink honeysuckle twines around the railing, I paint cobalt blue garden signs, watering can, paintings. In between sorting and sifting through belongings: sending some off to charity, some to sell, some to give away to friends, I'm still amazed how much 'stuff' accumulated over the years. One thing I never have too much of guessed it, ART. Mine and others. Work in progress. Art supplies. Vases of brushes. One positive note about cleaning up and out is there is a bit more space. For art. Thought of the day: Bloom. Just bloom.
