It is pouring here today and the temperature is warm. Nature needs a good drink of water and I am happy to work inside. My postings may be a little less frequent for a while as I am busy with spring gardening and preparing for my daughter's wedding in three weeks.
When feeling pressed for time, I remind myself how blessed we are to be experiencing both of these things (spring gardening and a spring wedding). A year and a half ago we were accompanying our daughter in her battle with cancer. It will be simply glorious to see her marry her wonderful partner and merge their two little families into a family of six. We will be blessed with not only a new son-in-law, but also two new grandchildren a boy the same age as our oldest granddaughter (10) and a girl the same age as our youngest (7). We will celebrate their union the same week as our wedding anniversary. It will be a joyous time for the entire family.
Since this blog was 'somehow' acquired the strange name, 'Original Art Studio' I feel obliged to occasionally feature some of my forays with palette knife and paint. These works are really studies in colour and texture. I do not delude myself that they are any more than that. They are what they are. They took mere minutes to do. I hope the splash of colour brightens your day, and that this type of art post helps me earn and justify the name of the blog.
You must give birth to your images.
They are the future waiting to be born...
Fear not the strangeness you feel.
The future must enter you long before it happens...
Just wait for the birth...
For the hour of clarity.
~Rainer Maria Rilke
I'm waiting, Rainer. Truly, I am.
