The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

flowers remind us ...

~flowers remind us~
The artist
is the confidant of nature.
Flowers carry on dialogues with him
through the graceful bending of their stems
and the harmoniously tinted nuances
of their blossoms.
Every flower has a cordial word
which nature directs towards him.
~Auguste Rodin~
and a few phases of the painting along the way ...
birch bark
and white ink
stamping
lots and lots of layers
of transitioning
The moment
in between
what you once were,
and who you are now becoming
is where the dance of life
really takes place.
~Barbara De Angelis~

Beautiful.

This reminds me of another artist of nature, Gwen Frostic.
