Thin gossamercloudsslitheracrossthebluesky as the tips of the trees are coated with golden light from a rising sun. The moon that filled the house with silverly light last night is gone and replaced with the freshness of a new morning. Mother sits by the fire, warming as she drinks coffee and looks out the windows to the world coming alive with the light. It was a good night for us both as she slept most of the night and went back to bed soon after getting up. Breakfast is passed and the dishes washed and now the wait begins as she heats her hands by the glowing fire and is prepared for her morning drive. Yesterday was filled with her conversations to the wall and reading the table top. Now she seems happy to watch what is going on both inside and out.
The painting I have been working on with the gold metallic background is almost finished and has achieved the look and feel I was after. The contrast of transparency and opacity forms a tension that vibrates over the surface, and, at the same time, there is a quietness that holds it all together. It reminds me of being near a pool of water at dawn and watching as more reveals itself as you view it. I have new panels to start very soon and hope today to get some paint on them. I am going to play with the star map and human form but on a slightly smaller scale. I am intrigued with the images and concepts and want to explore it further. Also, I want to do light raking between trees illuminating the yellow greens that are coating the hillside as the rains and warmer temperatures work their magic to transform the landscape from winter brown to spring verdant hues.
The house becomes more familiar each day as we grow accustomed to its sounds and spaces. With the exceptions that Mother seems to have trouble finding her bathroom at times and when she leaves the dining table has no idea which direction to take to get to her favorite chair, and it is a small house. We laugh and she is easy to guide back to a comfortable place.
Hope you are enjoying a comfortable place in your life and the life that is filling the land with new birth is filling you with the same. That the days grow brighter and filled with the smells of sweet fragrances you explore the space around you and the others in your life. That you will find the cure for what is wrong in the joy and love you have and share.
