The most precious things of all usually do not have much to do with money...they are sometimes brief cherished moments shared with those who we feel are our kindred spirits, the ones who 'get us' and who accept us...those precious, precious ones, who sometimes challenge us or show us a different way of seeing things and who ultimately love us anyway despite out imperfections...perhaps it's those imperfections that make us loveable? I certainly hope so :)
'Best Friendship' 8" x 8" mixed media canvas
I really enjoyed making this painting...I'm finding a voice that has been long buried under everyday life that is now talking to me through the paint...does that sound weird? I know those of you that create in a personal way will 'get me' when I say this, it's a mixed time of exploration, healing and experimenting and I've chosen to share it publicly here on my blog...every year that goes by reveals another piece of the creative puzzle, photography, texture making and now painting, the original medium I used to work in...I'd spend all my spare time painting as a child, teen and young adult...I feel deep appreciation that I now have the time, space and those magic ingredients that make us take steps, reclaim, or make changes that bring us back to ourselves again ♥ I scanned the picture this time, it's a little lighter here than in person but you get the idea...
Best friends come in all shapes and sizes don't they? Here's my latest snap of Izzy with me risking
Pom Pom Dahlia
Some of the last flowers of the season are looking so beautiful at the moment here, the Dahlias are amazing in their array of patterns, shapes and colours, they're so interesting...how are your flowers doing? We have some roses that are still going, last year they flowered until Christmas, which was lovely...cheering up the garden with their seasonal reds and greens, when everything else was asleep...
I do hope you have a wonderful weekend and a great week too, I look forward to seeing what you've been up to :)
