Luminous brilliancefillsthehouse,blastingeverycornerwiththehot breathof day. The heat that baked the area yesterday is still with us. Even Mother is happy to pass on a fire this morning and is comfortable with her sweater and hot coffee. The warmth has cause the rhodies in the yard to burst open and pinks, whites, reds and purples wave in the slow moving breeze. Mother had a rough night and has been groggy this morning but seems to be waking from her fog and is staring out at the brilliantly lit morning. Soon we will be off to take our ride as soon as the wash comes out.
We have returned from a picture postcard beach not far from the house. Mother has enjoyed watching the swimmers and people overflowing the sand enjoying a pretty day. Lunch was a slow process with Mother trying to figure out how to eat a sandwich and now she is sitting in a chair chased from her usual one by the sun.
The first layer of paint is drying on the 4’ X 4’ work in the living room. The bones of the painting are delineated and the general pattern is emerging from the white surface of the panel. A small seascape dries at the other end of the room. Other works in process of completion are leaning against the wall waiting for new additions of pigment. Vivid hues sing from the surfaces and glow jewel like in the light that drenches the room. Several works will be turned to the wall for a month to determine if they are finished and ready to leave the studio. Other works will take their place in the visual landscape and continue on their journey to completion.
Hope you are finding enjoyment in the sun filled days and are pausing for the sun to light on your skin and for your ears to hear the songs of birds and laughing people. That you are spending time to recharge your heart and lift others to smell the scent of flowers. That you are finding joy and strength in all that is beautiful and in meeting others needs. That you will delight in the sound of wind moving through trees and geese honking as they fly over head.
