Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet. Thich Nhat Hanh I’m back with my series Life: From A to Z, and I’m on the letter “G” today. I’ve decided that I […]
“You have to look beyond the face, To see the person true, Deep down within my inner space, I am the same as you.” “I’ve seen compassion from the blind, Who think with open eyes. […]
In thinking about the letter “E,” the words energy and endurance came to mind. As I started working on my image, I wasn’t sure which one I was going to talk about, or what I […]
Life: From A to Z At the risk of sounding cliché, the letter “D” made me think of “dancing to the beat of your own drum.” I’ve noticed that my thoughts, views, and ideas about […]
The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled. Plutarch I didn’t plan to use our cat “Gypsy” for my featured image, but when I thought about the word […]
IN MY LUCID DREAMS, IN A WORLD THAT HAS GONE MAD, HOPE IS FLUTTERING. I had one last image that I wanted to try before I take a break from illustrator. I’ll resume after Christmas […]
Celestial sphere, Eternal light in the dark, Eyes fixed upon you. Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge: Eye & Light
I’ve never been able to help the fact that I’m easily amused. I’m extremely grateful for this fact—especially during these past few days (or weeks, or months)—when it’s so easy to be moody. I know […]
If people could shrink, Food would last so much longer. That’s just what I think. Written for the Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge: Shrink & Think That was a tough Haiku! There was no getting around […]
Sometimes you have to close your eyes…
The mind is like an umbrella; it functions best when open. Walter Gropius Passing through quickly for the letter “U” today! I went with the first words that came to my mind. As the quote […]
Creating Surreal Art for my Favorite “S” words: Sand, Stars, Shells, Saxophone & Silhouettes. A Sprinkle of Solitude too… My favorite way to spend a Sunday. All that was missing was Sushi. 😦 HaHa! See […]
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.Genesis 1:3
It’s been too long! I think this is the craziest, busiest semester I’ve ever had. It’s all good though because I love (most of) my classes and there are only 3 weeks left before it’s over. YAY!
I wanted to pop in and share my latest portrait and add an update to the alphabet game… for the letter “L” —
Love & Light
I actually wanted to share some words about my love of lightning (I LOVE lightning), but the plan changed this afternoon since I didn’t prepare. But… I’ve been reading some books on Quantum physics and how it relates to God, Genesis, and the Big Bang Theory, and I think Love & Light are great words for the letter L, and a good way to sum it all up. 🙂
This morning I drove into Pasadena. It wasn’t a major excursion, but it was in the opposite direction of where I normally travel and everything was unfamiliar. I wish I had taken my camera. It’s the perfect place for street photography, but it was just TOO hot! I wanted to get in—and get out.
I went there to pick up the kit for my drawing class. I’m already enjoying the course. It’s not so much that I’ve learned anything yet (it’s only been two days), or that I even see the possibility of getting really good at it. It’s the fact that I’m putting aside my fear, putting the pencil to the pad, and making an effort.
The newest addition to my Garden Art series: I know, I know… It doesn’t look like it came from the garden. Believe it or not, this image was created with cherry tomatoes. Although they’re quite […]
“Above all shadows rides the sun.” J.R.R. Tolkien Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Shadow
Whatever goes up, will surely come down;
Like a boomerang, it just all goes around.
You get what you give, or reap what you sow;
If hate’s what you plant, then hate’s what will grow.
If you want to see change; if love’s what you thirst,
Be bold with your kindness…
Dare to go first.
FEAR has Two Meanings: Forget Everything and Run… …or Face Everything and Rise. A quote by Zig Ziglar I think there may be a third option. Be still. Because maybe, like this woman seems to […]
—Feathers of Hope Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul— and sings the tune without the words— and never stops— at all. Emily Dickinson This image is something I’ve been itching […]
Clouds on clouds, in volumes driven,
Curtain round the vault of heaven.
—Thomas Love Peacock—
Scarlet red beauty Romance hidden in your scent Love spun by your touch
Beneath plump white down
Luscious colors light my world
Through bewitching eyes
Every act of creation is first an act of destruction.
