Beacon Hill Park in the Fall




Even with the days becoming shorter, fall is my favorite time with the bright colors and cooler days.  Red seems to jump out and dance while I have my daily walk.  I'm always in awe of nature.

Window Painting.....

When I was a child, I loved painting our kitchen window on different occasions.  To honor Fall and Halloween, I've created a pumpkin patch for all it see when they pass by.  Hope you enjoy!!! :)

Halloween is just around the corner

I haven't been creating a lot of artwork lately, so many other projects on the go.  I did have time to do a quick sketch that I'll be using to do a window painting for Halloween.  This year I'm going to participate and let my inner child celebrate this wonderful time of year.

Love

Beauty can be in a passing thought,
and even when I think the sun is gone,
the clouds part,
and there you are dancing,
in the darkness.

I giggle,
as the sheets fall away,
and being,
body to movement,
air to breath,
I dance with you.
The song of eternity is singing within,
and nothing can discontinue my joy.

Love flutters,
lifts me into a realm,
so sweet that only my thoughts can tighten my soul,
only to rise within,
this moment,
that is endless,
if I let it be.

In the Heart of a Rose

I love to draw, but sometimes my camera wants attention, so I give it time to express itself.  If I listen then a good picture will be born.

I've been experiencing some difficult times, so I bought this rose for myself to bring light into my heart. I hope these pictures open your heart too.


I have read and felt that angels are connected to the rose.  Well, I must admit my feelings do believe that angels are all around.



Many blessings to all!!!

Finding my Muse

I have canvases sitting off to the side in my apartment.  I've been looking at them, but feeling little of no inspiration to touch any of the surfaces.  Lately, my focus has been with writing, creating a colorful world with words instead of paint.  I've just finished my first novel and when I get back from my trip I'll be putting it on line.

Enough about me, I wanted to post an image from my trip to New York City.  I went to so many galleries and was completely connected to my muse.  One artist that always connects me to my artist soul is "Lucian Freud".  His portraits bring such honesty through figurative work.  I saw the following painting at the Museum of Modern Art.


The next image is a close up of the same work.  To really feel this work, you have to see all the texture on the surface.  This piece takes me right inside this person, what he is feeling and into the raw nakedness of life.


I will be leaving on my trip soon and won't be posting for awhile, but I will have some wonderful pictures to share and hopefully inspire your inner muse!!!
