Green isnot usually one of my favorite colors, but, of late, it is one that I seem drawn to. The new small works of leaves, rocks and water intrigue...

Shafts of Blazing Light
May 10, 2016
Shaftsof blazinglightblast through the trees flooding everything with glorious brilliance. In the pond orange golden fish dance beneath the surface while an orange cat bends over the edge of the pool staring at the ballet out of its reach. A breeze ruffles the mounds of green leaves on the maples while Mother watches with a smile on her face and her coffee cup close by. The night was not disrupted much and Mother is bright and cheerful as her day begins. Mother’s Day was one she enjoyed and even though it is lost to her she seems to feel a glow from it or maybe it is the beauty of the garden beyond the window with the plumage of spring. Her afternoons seem the hardest for her to navigate through and the lostness she exhibits is hard for her to find comfort in the usual patterns of living. She is still blessed with a gentle and sweet spirit that gives grace to her life and keeps both of us warm in the cold wanderings of her mind or rather what I feel in my mind and heart from what I see and hear.
Fish are lining up in the art area as they get the last check up before heading either to galleries or storage. There is a pleasant feeling of laughter in the air. They are dressed in bright colors and shapes that give each a personality. It is good to take a break working on them while other works are drying and getting ready for my pigment. The 4’ X 4’ work continues to make its transition to a sea of refections crisscrossed with lines of shadow. It has an aura of mystery as patterns begin to form and more of its hidden forms reveal themselves. The tree in bloom seems close to being turned against the wall. I will look forward to its return in a month and the final evaluation of it’s completeness. I am working on the sketches of a new work on a 3’X3’ panel. So far, only rough ideas are floating around my head and I feel the pull toward them with my heart.
I rearranged some of the art in the dining room to make room for other works I wanted to see. Was pleased to see that Mother enjoyed them even if she did not know they were new to the area. One of the blessings of life is to live with the thoughts that used to be only in your head and now occupy the space outside of you. I enjoy thinking about what went on to bring them to a place where others can see them as well.
Hope you are enjoying sharing who you are and what you think with others. That you are making your dreams and goals real and that they bring you joy. That peace is part of what you are sharing. That you can rejoice in all that you create with your life. That you will build up others with what you share with others and not tear down. That you make the world better by all you do.
