It's been too long...
I've made little time for art or blogging lately.
It's finally summer here.
Need i say more? :-)
Like most everyone,
I've been busy with so many other things,
like hanging out with my son,
working (who had the bright idea that working 5 days/week was reasonable?),
treasured time with friends,
spending time with dad,
doing summer stuff, like sitting on the front porch
with iced tea on warm evenings,
or walking on the beach with my toes in the sand...
and of course,
drinking wine and eating chocolate.
Not necessarily in that order...
i am really itching to paint something - to make art,
but i seem to have little energy left by the time evening rolls around.
Must be a case of the cubicles. :-)
Being surrounded by grey walls for 8 hours
would zap the energy out of anyone.
So tonight, a few minutes ago,
i did this quick pastel -
just to get my hands & fingers dirty again.
Found this little deck of cards in mom's things...
it doesn't surprise me that she would have this.
Mom always knew exactly what she needed.
And earlier tonight, i was visited by my dear friend, Lucille...
who brought me this wonderful gift for my birthday earlier this week.
She could not have picked out a better gift.
It's filled with beautiful art
and thought provoking questions.
Two of my favorite things in life.
Now if only it somehow contained
little hidden pieces of chocolate...
Rainn Wilson is the guy who plays "Dwight Schrute" on the OFFICE
for all you tv buffs out there.
i can't wait to go through this book...
how can you not love such a book
when it's filled with both creativity and questions?
my little Einstein quote,
pushing me along...
and a video of Lhasa de Sela, singing Fool's Gold,
a song that still grows on me to this day.
She died about a year later... at the tender age of 37.
Gone too soon.
Thanks for being here,
especially considering how little i've been here lately...
