Ocean Skies

On this long storm the rainbow rose

On this long storm the rainbow rose,
On this late morn the sun;
The clouds, like listless elephants,
Horizons straggled down.

Emily Dickinson

Blink of an eye

It doesn’t feel like it’s been so long and again it feels like forever- since I posted- connected. Something about this time makes me want to reach out and say Hi! Hmmm- quarantine maybe?
We have lived so much in the past year- illnesses, supporting those we love and those we pray for, losing my mother , welcoming a new child and now this era.

I’ve been spending time praying, cleaning, purging, singing, playing, chasing, working and painting again. I’ve always been drawn to landscapes and wildlife but recently discovered a connection to portraitures? Who knew?

I’m working on playing with flesh tones and capturing the look in the eyes ( the windows). My family thought my first attempt was “creepy” , not the feeling I was aiming for- 😂- what do you think?

Finding moments of joy

Hi friends- it’s been awhile- at least to post to the blog. I’ve been active on Instagram. The last two years have been very active on a personal front primary with sandwich issues. Everyone is well with routine now. Grateful to God. Life can change in a moment and a phone call.

I’ve missed connecting with all of you- hoping you will still be here and we can reconnect too. If you’re new - welcome- I enjoy hearing from you- let me know you stopped by.  Over the past year I’ve rediscovered a past love. I have always enjoyed being creative in different ways, as most of you do too! Those who read the blogs are creative souls otherwise you wouldn’t be here. It’s not that you have too much time - it’s that you make time for things that offer you moments of joy or that feed you.  It’s so important to do this!! For me, I have returned to watercolor painting. It is exciting and calming and fun at the same time. You can see my most recent pieces on Instagram. It is something worth making time for in a very busy day and something worth sharing with you.

I have more about this. About connecting, about how in this busy world to find a moment of joy.
