the joy of snowfall
"to create one's own world
So many ideas for paintings come from my walks along the lake. I often say, I've walked a painting into existence. The words to "Hello, it's me" came from a recent beach walk.
Hello, it's me
just wanted you to know
that I've been looking for you
in morning light and evening shadows.
At the water's edge
watching the ebb and flow
As the seagulls fly by
I think they know.
Will they take my message
across the sky
With their wings
write hello and goodbye?
In their comings and goings
through clouds and skies of blue
Leave a heat shape behind
so you'll know I'm thinking of you!
While in a cafe, an admirer came over and asked Picasso to do a little drawing of her daughter. He obliged and drew something on the napkin in front of him. Picasso politely handed the drawing to the woman and said, "that will be $12,000"
The woman reeled, "What? That took you less than a minute!"
just looking at our prints, I think you can see why Archer is referred to as my "velcro dog" :-)
"The dog puts his cheek against mine and makes small, expressive sounds.
And when I'm awake, or awake enough he turns upside down, his four paws in the air and his eyes dark and fervent.
"Tell me you love me" he says
"Tell me again"
Could there be a sweeter arrangement?
Over and over he gets to ask.
I get to tell"
sprinkling bird seed onto the concrete hands in our garden. The tiniest of birds love this spot.
"We were made by the same Potter from different clay.
We won't be the same shapes or made for the same use.
We were made to be wildly unique - drastically different from the next.
Celebrate the different purpose.
We were never made to fit the same mold"
