After the Rain

“When I am finishing a picture, I hold some God-made object up to it – a rock, a flower, the branch of a tree or my hand – as a final test. If the painting stands up beside a thing man cannot make, the painting is authentic. If there’s a clash between the two, it’s bad art.” —Marc Chagall Hope…

Last Light Before Night

A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Stone Painting

So I started painting on stones. Somehow I’m finding satisfaction with painting tiny landscape scenes on the surface of smooth stones.

Cloud Cupcakes

And I remembered this light version of a buttercream frosting recipe and since it’s called cloud frosting, and we had a lot of clouds last night, and I wanted to chase away the clouds of sickness, I decided to try it out.

That Kind of Day

It hit me today.  The heaviness.  I didn’t have an appetite, so I forced myself to choke down some plain Cheerios and a banana.  I pulled on my leggings and a hoodie and went outside for a walk.  That’s all the energy I had for today.  But at least I was able to feel something…. like the cool wind on…
