lift me up so High

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

I took these photos this morning while on a very cold walk!
The morning was stunning.
My heart is thankful for big things and little things. Truly. Deeply.
Have a wonderful and sweet day.

Something different...
Drawing what I see...

Where Did Jenny Go?

Hello everyone!

I was down with a sinus infection for several days.
Then I was out of town for a wee bit.

I am coming back!
Monday I will have new art to share.

In the meantime, follow this LINK.
My dear heart introduced me to this author and artist, Michael Leunig.

Cheers to all!

Color is the fruit of life.

- Guillaume Apollinaire

In the past year and a half, my artwork has been tiny - 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
I love the size because I can work quickly.
Lately I began craving a larger size. It is still small by most standards but this 8 x 11 inch piece was fun to work on.

A Place To Pause

Yesterday we were met with a rainy morning.
It let up fairly early but it left raindrop treasures.

If you click twice in the bottom photo, it will enlarge it enough
for you to see the perfect leaf reflection in the water drop!

Acting Out The Whisper

she heard the call and answered,

acting out the whisper

she bowed

she cried...

you may like this

but first let me sweeten the great sadness

with more sugar and cream

she remembered there is no Golden day

It was close to 100° today in Southern California.
It was hot! I wanted to complain (and probably did)
but I couldn't deny it was a very beautiful day.

Sunshine is delicious,

rain is refreshing,

wind braces us up,

snow is exhilarating;

there is really no such thing as bad weather,

only different kinds of good weather.

-John Ruskin

As Much

he sailed in his steady boat

knowing the truth

job well done

Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame.

-Henry David Thoreau
