On My Easel Right Now…

This painting is in progress.  Really  I just need to finish the sides as it is a  wrap around 3″ deep canvas.

Also the little birdie’s feet  need to be painted in.

I think that the title will be  Hope Is The Thing.

So now you know what I have been up to. Hope you are having a great day!

When I was a little girl, I know  I have mentioned this before, I would draw for hours, making up stories about the character I was drawing. I would talk out loud to my self.  Perhaps reciting the imagined dialogue I was giving them, changing their costumes, hair  and make up.  This was my favorite thing to do.  It was so much fun, I never bored with it.

Sometimes you forget that ‘fun’ part when you grow up. Sometimes you just start going through the motions, not engaged in the moment. Why do we do that, when it is so much more fun to be engaged?  To fully immerse yourself in it.

(Ha, ha I could be talking about cooking dinner, couldn’t I?  We can just apply this to anything and everything).

This painting is a reminder that, my favorite thing to do is to paint characters. To make-believe these character and  then try my best to breathe life into them.


She had long tired of sweet nothings.

How many nothings had she heard in her life time?

She longed for somethings to be whispered to her

Slow,steady  and sure


told to her in truth

Lasting somethings


wishing nothings

Eating Watermelon In The Backyard

I eat my watermelon slice sitting under the apple tree

Sorry birdie

No seeds

The watermelon is so good

Sweet and cold

Juice dribbles down my chin

I squeal with delight
