I found an unusual piece of bark
to me it looked just like a squirrel :-)
It even had this quirky little piece sticking out at the bottom resembling a foot
It didn't take much to bring him into existence … a little eye, and sweet ear detail,
a light wash over the bark with 'storm cloud grey'
& a little white added to the grey to make his tail bushy & there he is
bringing a smile to my face (and I hope to yours too)!
"I have made a great discovery...
In my paintings it is not the objects that matter to me
but what is between them: it is this "in -between" that is the real subject of my pictures.
When one reaches this state of harmony between things and one's self, one reaches …
a state of perfect freedom and peace - which makes everything possible and right.
Life then becomes a perpetual revelation"

'your different was your beautiful all along'
"Normality is a paved road,
it's comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow"

"this is the power of gathering:
it inspires us -
to be more hopeful,
in a word,
