Puffs of Clouds
August 28, 2015
The cottonballsky acts as a stained glass window allowing the rays of the sun to pierce the morning mists and fly like arrows to strike the still bay and cause eruptions of sparkles that dot its surface. The tang of cool in the early day signals the coming fall as leaves begin their dance to the ground in graceful steps as the gentle breeze holds their hands. The farmer’s market is full of produce and the blackberry vines are yielding a cornucopia of delicious berries. It is a magic time full of summer but hints of autumn in both colors and temperatures. Mother nods off as the sun warms her as she sits in her chair lost in some dream. Her coffee cup stays anchored to the table top ready for her hands to grasp. The days are good for her but the nights still cause her the most problems; as the darkness comes to the world her mind slips into the darkness and she losses her way among the channels of her mind. She still wakes at all hours never sure what she must do and so we talk and she calms and is able to return to her bed and slumber for a time.
The art work is getting more exciting each day. I have the large figure piece which is a joyful exuberance of hues and shapes and lines. Like the pictures that you have to connect the dots before you know what you have. It is a map that explores combinations and locations and makes me happy just to look at it. I find myself drawn to its surface and my mind travels the various routes; each seems to end in a good place. The landscapes/skyscapes works are beautiful in their process and the way they are coming to life. Stars in patterns seem to hold the clouds in place as dark trees silently stare at the heavenly sight. Clouds go transparent at times as stars wink softly while the darkness feels like a soft velvet cloak draped over the forest. These new works also are just a delight to do. They pop and blaze and laugh with the voice that only the vast canopy of space can generate. There is a sweetness that flows through my mind as I explore these new works, a joy that makes them seem very special to me. Maybe, coupled with the maps emerging from the figure painting I see a future different than the past but rich and full of peace and joy and the excitement of living.
Hope you are finding peace and joy as you think of change coming into your life. That you will not fear but relax in knowing the future is bright and blessed. That you will not let the unknown make you dread it but will know there will be much new and wonderful to see. That you will enjoy the trip you are on and share your light with those who are around you.
